LED Creative Brings Colour To Sky One Show 'Revolution'

News Image
LED Creative's Sigma and BYTE Control system has been used to deliver electric colour and movement for Sky One's extreme sports show 'Revolution'.

Revolution is housed on the UK's largest ever broadcast entertainment set, and pits skateboarders, BMXers and skaters against each other across a custom-built course.

Filmed in front of a live studio audience, the show is centred around an extensive track layout, constructed at Cardington Studios against a super-vibrant set created by Scenic Designer Dominic Tolfts and Art Director Ben Telford. The LED Creative system helps to create the lighting and movement that encircles the on-track action.

The BYTE Controller units have been developed by the company specifically to work in unison with their Sigma product range, allowing maximum artistic control with minimum programming time. The compact, slimline LC Sigma 60 LED is the perfect solution for building into complex scenic arrangements such as Revolution, combining powerful, discreet, low energy LED illumination with incredibly precise control over individual pixels.

LED Creative Project Manager Tim Rees commented: "BYTE's ability to control a large number of pixels using just a few DMX channels was perfect for a show of this scale where we were able to utilise the Group Function to allow several outputs to be treated as if they are a single fixture. What you have in effect is a system that gets very close to pixel mapping but with very little setup time and no need for the universe and control overhead that an equivalent pixel mapped system would require."

The Revolution set is complemented by award winning LD Gurdip Mahal and Operator Ross Williams' lighting design which adds intense colour and excitement to the mix.

Mr Rees concluded: "The Revolution installation is absolutely huge; the incredible set design maintains a stunning vibrancy across the entire installation, from the track to the jumps to the interview areas. The team has done a spectacular job with our Sigma system which works really well against such a dynamic set."
