Star appearance for Ayrton Khamsin in Singapore

The Star Performing Arts Centre in Singapore is proud to have taken its first-ever stock of Ayrton LED moving heads with the recent addition of Ayrton Khamsin profile fixtures to its lighting inventory. 44 Khamsin-S and 6 Khamsin-TC fixtures were supplied to the landmark venue by Ayrton’s exclusive distributor for the region, Total Solution Marketing Pte Ltd.

The majority of its new Khamsin profiles have been installed in the 5000-seat Star Theatre, The Star Performing Arts Centre’s key venue, which prides itself on its state-of-the-art stage technology. The Star Theatre hosts a wide range of amplified music and speech events, including large scale, high-profile conferences, pop concerts and dance performances, and recently hosted the Singapore National Day 2020 Concert.

 

“The Khamsins are mainly rigged on overhead fly bars and FOH trusses from where they facilitate the multiplicity of diverse events that happen here,” says head of lighting, Mohamad Azhar Bin Mazlan. New Creation Church holds its weekly Sunday service at the venue which provides an opportunity for Khamsin’s capabilities to truly enrich the experience. “The Khamsin-TC profiles are used as the pastor’s key light during the service, with the Khamsin-S fixtures used primarily for effects and occasional supplementary key light,” continues Azhar.

 

Ayrton Khamsin was chosen after the team at The Star Performing Arts Centre carried out comprehensive research to find LED moving head replacements for the venue’s existing inventory of 1.2kW discharge fixtures. “Our original objective in moving to LED was to save power, but Khamsin has given us a lot more besides,” says Azhar. “We executed a shoot-out at the venue which proved that Khamsin was the only LED fixture then on the market compatible with our 1.2kW fixtures. Their performance in terms of output is so much more than we expected, plus they also give us rich colours and a variety of new, fresh gobo designs to choose from. To top it all off, Khamsin also has an in-built shutter/shaper function which helps us achieve a more focused and precise projection area which is especially valuable for those all-important key lights.

 

“Above all, we are just so impressed at the output capability of Khamsin compared to our previous 1.2kW fixtures and how much less power is required to run these fixtures.”
