Media Servers used within a Lighting Design


The Catalyst Media Server allows video imagery to become an integral part of the lighting design for a show, whether it be projected onto a screen or onto parts of a set or floor. The Hippotiser is another alternative system that works in a very similar way.

Adrian has been using Catalyst for many years now and is an experienced programmer. We design and produce our own graphics and video material as well as incorporating generic material. Bands such as El Presidente, Kubb and Athlete have performed in front of our custom multi-layered imagery. This has proven very successful and has been popular with production teams and performers alike.

Runrig employed our design and programming services for their 'Road Trip 2008' tour of Europe including a big show at Edinburgh Castle. The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland are the latest performers to come to us to design the visual elements of their shows, 'Illumination' and 'Legacy'.

These images are from the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland's 'Illumination' show and also video imagery designed for Runrig's 'Road Trip 2008' Tour. They were run on a Catalyst Media Server controlled from a WholeHog lighting desk. The video design and colours were carefully integrated into the lighting design to create the overall look.

Lighting Design for Functions:


Whatever the nature and scale of your function, corporate event or private party, we can provide design and consultancy services as well as supply, rig and operate the lighting and other associated effects. We are quite happy to spend time with you, talking about your requirements and how we can help to achieve your vision, allowing you to marry together all the design aspects from colour schemes to table decorations, video imagery, set dressing and special effects.
