LAS VEGAS, NV--Vanity is a high profile nightclub at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas whose visual focal point is a stunning, custom-made chandelier made up of 20,000 LED points driven by a Martin Maxedia Compact media server.

The Maxedia media server drives 25 universes of pixelmapped Artnet output across the chandelier, creating highly unique floating graphic effects with a unique three-dimensional feel.

Besides complementary club and dance floor effects, the chandelier displays custom content for marketing purposes, VIP customization, or graphics and logos for corporate events such as a recent Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition launch and Microsoft event.

The one-of-a-kind chandelier is surrounded by 40 Martin MAC 250 Entour moving heads and Martin Atomic 3000 strobes with Atomic Colors scrollers.
Lighting supplier is FBP Systems of Las Vegas with lighting design and programming by FBP’s Matthew Paupst.

“Maxedia is a very user-friendly system and so far everyone has been very happy with it,” Paupst comments. “It’s been running strong with no lag in the system, no delay. It’s a solid system that provides instant live access to accommodate an atmosphere that is constantly changing.”

The entire lighting and control system is controlled by a 42 inch touchscreen located in the DJ booth, driven by an AMX TPI-PRO.

Opened on New Year’s Eve with none other than P. Diddy, Vanity is described as an “eclectic jewel box” decorated in pearls, crystal, velvet and metallic gold. The 14,000 square foot venue features marble bars, a sunken dance floor, 60 intimate VIP booths, an outdoor terrace with cabanas and a women’s lounge. Vanity is operated by The Nightlife Group.
