The venue has streamlined their technical set up, allowing their technical and creative teams to work more efficiently and, ultimately, more creatively.
General Manager Chrissy states "It is now so much easier for us to mix and match what and where we rig our lighting and effects units, giving us more flexibility."
The Gate Theatre, home for progressive and anti-establishment international theatre for decades - inspiring audiences and artists alike for over 40 years.
In 2017 the Gate Theatre sucessfully upgraded it's old dimmer racks with 3 x 24 channel Chilli Bypass + RCD racks.
General Manager Chrissy said replacing the old racks with the Chilli Pro Bypass racks was a straight forward and hassle free process. "We had a very specific timeline to replace our dimmer racks between productions and three days after starting the installation, the new racks were up and running. This upgrade allowed us to install RCD protection as an increased safety protocol and let us plug devices that need constant hot power to be supplied anywhere at the push of a button. It is now so much easier for us to mix and match what and where we rig our lighting and effects units, giving us more flexibility."
In replacing our dimmer racks, we have been able to streamline our technical set up which has allowed our technical and creative teams to work more efficiently and, ultimately, more creatively.
Sam House is the Prod LX for "Assata Taught Me" at the Gate and this performance was the first use of the new Chilli Pro Bypass dimmers.
Replacing the LD 90 racks with the Chilli Pro Bypass racks has made the load-in of a 'mixed' rig straightforward. Press the button to test the circuit without needing a console online. Also the ability to just plug devices that don't like dimmed power, such as LED Power supplies and DMX Switch Relays, into the nearest socket reduced the amount of hot power cabling normally needed and further made additions and alterations to the design appear effortless.
