Pump House Theatre
A thriving hub for local and national performing arts and emerging talent.
72 channels of Chilli Pro (Bypass) joins the theatre's FLX lighting console.
The venue needed "a more flexible system with additional options for hard power", making Chilli Pro (Bypass) the perfect solution.
The new system needed to deal with an increasing amount of LED light sources and user demands for more flexible power distribution.
The Pump House Theatre and Arts Centre in Watford, UK, is a thriving hub for local and national performing arts and emerging talent and a busy receiving house with a lively programme of drama, musicals and dance, working to provide “arts for everyone”.
The intimate 124-seat venue has just upgraded its power distribution and dimming system with the installation of three 24-channel Zero 88 Chilli Pro bypass dimmers.
The Theatre has both a resident youth theatre group and an adult theatre company and a raft of regular and occasional external companies and clients who hire the space for their productions and events, all of which use the house technical facilities.
Jason Brameld, who is technical director at Torpedo Factory Group – a long-standing professional customer of Zero 88, has also been Pump House Theatre’s volunteer technical director since 1996, and he specified the new Chilli system that was needed to deal with the increasing amount of LED light sources now in the rig and user demands for more flexible power distribution, a trend that is set to continue.
