Mount Isa is a vibrant and progressive city that has become the administrative, commercial, and industrial center of North West Queensland. Managing Company Mount Isa Entertainment and Tourism Venues (MIETV) manages three, council owned entertainment and tourism venues in the city including Outback at Isa, Buchanan Park Events Complex and The Mount Isa Civic Centre.
In line with striving to provide extraordinary experiences for all events, MIETV has decided to expand its scope of professional equipment by acquiring CHAUVET Professional lighting fixtures, Eurotruss truss and Showcase road cases from Showtools International for all its venues. The new CHAUVET Professional inventory includes: Maverick MK2 Washes and Maverick MK1 Hybrids as well as Showcase road cases and HD34 Eurotruss Square Truss.
The acquisition of the CHAUVET Professional fixtures is set to transform live entertainment in the city. With their 12 40W Osram LED light sources, the MK2 washes provide an intense wash lighting with incredibly bright light and great color options thanks to the CMY mixing plus gobo wheels that provide great depth. The Maverick MK1 Hybrid allows a world of choices for MIETV with advanced optics, with multi-facet prisms and gobo combinations and a robust CMY colour system to create an endless combination of looks, all powered by a 440 W Osram Sirius reflector lamp.
Recently Shane Riddington, Head of Technical and Production at MIETV held a showcase in front of relevant stakeholders to highlight all the new lighting equipment and their capabilities (find the video below).
“This display includes a state of the art lighting system that has one of the largest selections of the all new CHAUVET Professional Maverick range of professional intelligent lighting in Australia,” Shane Riddington stated to The North West Star, “The huge array of lighting effects possible with this system are all controlled by a completely wireless system, allowing the technical staff to control it from anywhere within the Civic Centre.”
Shane Riddington said the effect of the lighting system were a match for any regional theatre or event space. “It puts MIETV in contention with virtually any city based production house in Australia.”
Meanwhile, the acquisition of the Eurotruss HD34 square truss was due to the system’s excellent load capacity, the 3mm wall thickness assures durability and extra strength in addition to its fast-conical connection system.
The latest acquisition has enabled Mount Isa City Council to continue to provide various events and entertainment in the city while offering maximum fulfilment for any event requirements. With its investment into CHAUVET Professional, Eurotruss and Showcase, Mount Isa will continue to provide amazing experiences for all events at each of the city’s entertainment venues, with the new equipment being the newest and largest of its type in Australia putting Mount Isa on the ‘cutting edge’.
