A spectacular light show comprising entirely DTS moving heads was the peak of the celebrations of the 40th 'National Day' of Laos.

The 'National Day' is the most important event in the country, in commemoration of the abolition of the monarchy and the proclamation of the Democratic Republic of Laos.

The lighting system, installed by the rental company ProPacific (Thailand) Co., included 200 Raptor moving heads, 40 XR1200 WASH, and 60 XR3000 SPOT. The ceremony was held at the ‘Laos National Stadium’ of Vientane on 2nd December.

Karin Chaisompongpan, LD of 'National Day', has divided the stage into four areas: back, front, right and left, each with a different setup.

Back lighting comprised three horizontal trusses 30m long, ten XR3000 SPOT and four XR1200 WASH each, 48 Raptor hanging from the catwalk bridge that overlooks the stands, 42 Raptor on a structure 21m long and 2m high at ground level, 14 Raptor attached to two flag poles above the stands.

Front lighting comprised three horizontal trusses 30m long, ten XR3000 SPOT and four XR1200 WASH units each, four structures (12m x 2m) on the ground, eight Raptor units and four XR1200 Wash units each, 14 Raptor attached to two flag poles above the stands.

Side lighting comprised three structures (12m x 2m) on each side at ground level with eight Raptor each.

Karin Chaisompongpan, LD of ‘National Day' said: “From my experience using DTS products for this event I was quite impressed by the reliable performance of the Raptors and also by the light quality of it's beam. It's really bright enough to light the football field from over 80m. throw distance. Also gives impressive stunning aerial looks when pointed up to the sky.

Thanks to Showtec Group Singapore who sent talented technicians to do technical supports and maintenance on the fixtures from the setup period to show day. Which made the show really smooth and successful.

If any events like this will come, I have confidence to use the DTS products for my show again.”
