Featuring 6 high brightness and power LEDs, Graph-i-Cell RGB is a single pixel fixture that can be easily assembled with other units of its kind to screen low resolution video files and graphic patterns. Integrated with the existing architecture or stage back drop, Graph-i-Cell RGB can accept, via DMX interface, any graphic, video or still image coming from a DVI media server and the configuration system can then store and trigger the show to a striking visual effect. Available also in warm and cold white coloure temperature, Graph-i-Cell is fitted with a dome shaped 180° opaline diffuser to offer a sharp image rendition and an optimal peripheral visibility. The IP65 weather protection rating makes Graph-i-Cell RGB suitable for almost any application.
A full digital control over all functions was a vital requirement for this project, in order to seamlessly manage the complex lighting scheme of the whole arena through the usage of a dedicated software. Specific to design and programme the most creative lighting shows, this cutting-edge software is based on innovative and intuitive tools capable of creating both simple and more complex lighting and visual design, arranging lighting fixtures in a project plan, and configuring external devices in the control system, in addition to programming special lighting effects, video-to-light pixel mapping, visualization of the lighting installation, and special triggering and automation features.
The thousands of fans and followers of the 1st European Games have been able to enjoy also another prestigious landmark of Baku lit up by GRIVEN in 2011: the Baku Flame Fountain. Standing imposingly in the middle of a large fountain pool, this triple helix flame shaped sculpture is the centrepiece of a public park built on Hedar Aliyev Avenue, the main highway leading into the city from the airport and located very close to the games’ city cluster. The illumination design of the Flame Fountain was fitted with over 1,500 banks of GRIVEN LED lights fixed directly onto the tower body, fully custom made independent pixel modular bars that could comply with all the required features of this project. The final result is an exciting automated show where the faultless interface of the flame tower lighting system with the sound and water control of the three water fountains allows the creation of amazingly synchronized choreographies and stunningly matching effects of water, light and music.
From June, 12 to 28 Baku 2015 1st European Games have been the highlight for millions of sport fans and the Heydar Aliyev Sports and Exhibition Complex had its chance to be seen the world over with its crown of sparkling lights.
