Over 500 CLF fixtures were part of the very first Electric Fireworks NYE show in the Amsterdam ArenA. Selected because of their power and punch, Poseidon and Aorun beams took care of the aerial effects. LEDbar PRO and Ares fixtures were added to create blinding firework effects. 4Light Showprojects and Dutch7 were in charge of the technical production. Lighting was designed and programmed by LD Company.
During load-in, the roof of the ArenA had to be open all the time. Therefore, fixtures with an IP65 rating were preferred. Ronnie Santegoeds (4Light Showprojects) explains: “Initially we planned an outdoor event. That’s why we started the preparation process with a big fixture shoot-out, based on projection at 50 meters and beam intensity. The CLF Poseidon Beam was chosen to feature the circle shaped structures which resemble fireworks.”
The iconic firework structures also included LEDbar PRO and Ares fixtures. “We used these fixtures for the most powerful part of fireworks; launching and exploding. Due to their output, the LEDbar PRO and Ares were ideal to emphasize these accents”, comments Santegoeds. 180 linearly lined up Aorun Beam fixtures completed the scene.

- 180x Aorun Beam
