Inside the expansive auditorium section of Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, Bruno Madec Technical Director of Prodster, recently installed 14 Chauvet Professional Maverick Silens 2 Profile fixtures for their silent operation
The 560W fanless projector operates in complete silence, making it well-suited for this intimiate venue, according to Bruno Madec, Technical Director of Prodster.
“We manage several cultural and institutional venues in Paris, including Louis Vuitton Foundation” said Madec. “For several years we have been wanting a silent LED spotlight projector of a resonable size and weight. Considering the shows we host including classical, dance and jazz performances we want to create an environment that is as silent as possible.“
Delivered to Louis Vuitton Foundation in June, the Maverick units are arranged on three different front stage positions. From here they can cover the entire stage, in addition to highlighting the architectural features of the room during a vernissage or cocktail party.
“Beyond their silent operation, the Maverick projectors have the qualities we wanted,” said Madec.
“The Chauvet engineers added 16-bit graduation with tungsten emulation, a perfect color spread, and a 10:1 linear zoom, which make the units very versatile for us.
It is important for us to be able to reformat our stage in two hours, because of the variety of functions and shows that take place in this room.”
“The programming here is very rich and eclectic,” continued Madec. “This requires having a particularly flexible and adaptable lighting system to go from a piano recital, to a jazz scene, to a reception, for example. Therefore, it is very desirable for us to have motorized moving heads that allow us to make adjustments, while also providing very fast and very sharp lighting.”
