SyncroMITE™ Beam Launched at Record and Ground Breaking Events
USA – The new SyncroMITE Beam that was introduced at LDI last November is now in full production and available for immediate rental and sale. During the first week of April the SyncroMITE Beam debuted in its first production in record setting form.
On 3rd April, 40 SyncroMITE Beams were used alongside the reveal stage at WrestleMania 32, where the WWE set a new attendance record of 102,000 fans packed into AT&T Stadium. The SyncroMITE’s were part of a larger Syncrolite package that included MX4s, SXLs and XLs, which combined was also the largest number of automated Syncrolite fixtures ever used in a single event.
TJ Benton served as crew chief for Syncrolite and worked alongside Jason Robinson, the WWE production manager and Jason Shaw, the senior manager of lighting, to pull off this bigger than life production.
Later that same week, SyncroMITE Beams were included in the lighting rig for the series grand finale of American Idol. In the pictures and video of the performances it was easy to identify the big, bold, bright beams provided by the SyncroMITEs. Many past Idol winners and standouts performed during the emotional last show. After participating in many past seasons it was an honour for Syncrolite to also make its last appearance on this groundbreaking series.
