Illuminated Integration worked to replace the existing stage and house lighting system in the Kaplan Theater at Towson University in MD. Altman Chalice 70W LED Recessed fixtures are utilized over the house, replacing dated incandescent recessed fixtures. In order to keep the look of the original pendant lights over stage while adding versatility of a color changing LED, The Light Source HL Series, RGBW fixtures fit the bill perfectly. The new LED house and stage lights provide a higher level of illumination while saving on power from the previous house lights. over the seating, illumination has been improved from 10-15 FC to 25-30 FC.
Illuminated Integration upgraded the architectural controls for the space from a Legacy Unison system to the latest Paradigm system from ETC. All of the existing button stations were replaced with Inspire button stations and a new touchscreen was installed in the tech booth. The existing dimmer rack was also upgraded to CEM3. Lastly, Illuminated Integration updated the space to have a fully network based control system. New network plug-in stations were installed in all of the necessary positions to allow for future expansion. One-Port Touring Gateways were used on the catwalk positions to provide DMX to the new fixtures.
With the upgrade of the space, new dimmer modules were installed in the Sensor Rack to provide the correct power types to the various fixture types. Illuminated Integration installed Source Four LED Series 2 Lustr Ellipsoidals on the catwalk positions to provide a full stage front color wash. Because the existing dimmer rack was left in place, the modules are able to be switched from relay to dimmer modules. This allows the school to supplement the LED front light with their inventory of existing conventional fixtures.
Lastly, Illuminated brought life to the aging curtains in the room by cleaning and restoring them.
For this project, Illuminated Integration not only installed the aforementioned system, we also consulted with the project architect from start to finish. Providing insight from the beginning, Illuminated was able to seamlessly integrate a much more functional and tailored package for Towson University.
"Tyler and Mike from Illuminated did a superlative job with our Frederico Theater. They started the project soon after signing the contract, they met every deadline, they had no change orders, they communicated clearly and often and their training sessions were superb. We could not have asked for a better partner for Holy Ghost Prep's Frederico Theater."Tim Woods Holy Ghost Prep's Frederico Theater
