Green Hippo Assist With Marina Bay Sands Show

News Image
'Spectra' is Marina Bay Sands Singapore's outdoor laser, light, projection and water show. Designed by Steve Nield, it has been two years in the making and is set to run for five years.

Featuring a soundtrack composed by Singaporean award-winning producer and music arranger Kenn C, Spectra runs for 15 minutes and includes the use of specially-developed underwater 500 watt LED fixtures and a 12-meter high laminated glass prism which forms the 'heartbeat' of the show.

Charged with delivering 'emotion' over 'storyline', Nield worked closely with Kenn C. At the core of the show's media system, Nield installed six Green Hippo Media Servers. One pair of Hippotizer Boreals – one main, one back-up – provides media feeds to three water screens, with each screen having two Christie Boxer 4K20 projectors. The remaining four Boreals – three main, one back-up – project on to the 'petals' of the adjacent 'lotus flower', styled by ArtsScience Museum.

Control of the servers is via Art-Net from a grandMa2, which, in turn, is triggered via time code from an ADAT. This system also provides multi-channel music to the speaker array, on and off, the water.

Nield's list of creative considerations was extensive; lights are positioned on specially created floating pontoons, as well as additional projection screen barges. The chosen lighting positions give maximum effect in conjunction with laser, projection, and water effects.

Steve Nield said: "I needed to specify a solid reliable platform that would provide the client with not only value for money, but also a solid, stable platform that would last the proposed five years that the show is scheduled to run. I use many different servers for different projects but being a Hippotizer user and owner for over 10 years, I have extreme confidence in the product and the support behind it. As a lighting and visual director, Hippotizer Media Servers have been a great asset in my toolbox for many years, helping me to integrate lighting and media."
