Medialon Manager Chosen For Black Bear Jamboree

Medialon Manager Chosen For Black Bear Jamboree
  • MIAMI, FL-Medialon Manager is the centerpiece of Pigeon Forge, TN's new Black Bear Jamboree, a musical dinner revue featuring state-of-the-art lighting, lasers, and surround sound to tell the story of the legendary annual gathering of all the black bears in the Great Smoky Mountains. Installed by Clair Brothers Systems, Medialon Manager meets the Jamboree's need for a user-friendly control system with consistent and simplified operation.

With shows running in early morning and all evening, the Black Bear Jamboree relies on the Medialon Manager for corrections and adjustments that can be done in real time, while the project is actually running.
"Medialon coordinates everything for the show," reported Marshall L. Whaley of Fee Hedrick who serves as the show's director of technical services. "There are six time lines which start at different times, each representing a segment of the show. The show has a total of four segments with music, dancers, lights and six animatronic bears. An Alesis HD24 audio track player sends MIDI time code to Medialon which synchs the time code with the time line to control an array of equipment and trigger the bears."
