Wed, 06 Dec 2017 16:19
Criss Angel’s Mindfreak Live! at the Luxor Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, upends people’s views of magic and awes spectators with a goth-horror vibe mixed with rock ‘n’ roll spectacle. The production has the largest number of moving lights on the Las Vegas Strip and combines movering heads, lasers, video and more into one seamless show.
The large number of fixtures and media demands may be taxing some consoles, however ETC’s Eos Ti performed optimally for the task at hand. ETC’s recent online video release follows lighting programmer Josh Selander and gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at how he pulled together one of the most technically demanding shows on the Strip, demonstrating why the Eos Ti, in the hands of a master programmer, delivers.
Some of the features of Ti that Selander highlights include syncing the console to music and multiple versions of time code for the different ways needed to call a show; using absolute effects to work intensity and colour changes, adding a charge to an illusion’s finish; and leveraging the pixel mapping feature to treat the console as a media server and easily snap between content on LCD panels.
Criss Angel pushes magic to extreme new edges in his show, and ETC’s Eos Ti console delivers unreal lighting for it all.
