Japanese Pop Culture Comes Alive with Martin Lighting and Control Solutions

  • Anime Festival Asia 2009 (AFA09) is Singapore’s most impressive festival targeting fans of Japanese animation and popular culture.
  • AFA09, which took place at Singapore Suntec International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 21-22 November, included concerts by a power-packed list of Japan’s top musical performers collectively themed as ‘I Love Anisong’.
  • Trio AV of Singapore supplied audio, visuals, trussing and lighting for the two-day event with a package that included Martin MAC 2000 Profiles, MAC TW1 Washes, MAC 2000 Washes and MAC 301 Washes with lighting control from a Martin Maxxyz Compact and two of the new MaxModules, MaxModule Submaster and MaxModule Button. Video clips for the wide projection screen were from a Martin Maxedia PRO media server.
  • Programming the Maxxyz Compact was Joel Tay who has worked with a number of different lighting desks but finds the Maxxyz to his liking.
  • “After attending the software version 2.6 training conducted by Paul Pelletier, I decided to go for a change and try a different console,” Tay comments. “I like Maxxyz, especially the new Patch functionality. It’s easy to use, fast to program and has great possibilities. Together with the MaxModules, Maxxyz is definitely a powerful and versatile tool.” Joel thanks Jeffrey Ong (Martin Singapore) for the invaluable support he provided.
