ProPlex at Galway International Arts Festival

Ireland – The annual Galway International Arts Festival is Ireland’s largest cultural event. This year’s line-up features musical performances by Dublin’s own Gavin James, England’s Passenger, original Beach Boy Brian Wilson, and many others. Lighting for the eclectic series of nightly concerts in the festival Big Top is provided by Light Source, with data networking by ProPlex.

“We have used ProPlex cable and devices for every show over many years,” says Light Source general manager, Ciaran Donnelly. “This gig has two GBS 10-port switches, four Opto-Splitters including two Minis in the truss, and an IQ Two 1616 16-universe DMX node. Tying the system together are over 200 metres of ProPlex Fibre, and 200 meters of ProPlex CAT5e and DMX cables.” Donnelly added: “Additionally, we are using 200 metres of ProCable Multicable, fanouts, and 16 amp TRS mains cables.”

Light Source system technician, Brendan Cummins, adds: “The flexibility offered by the IQ Two and Opto-Splitters makes data routing via both hard-switchable and soft-patched universe outputs extremely easy when dealing with touring bands and artists. The ProPlex devices and software are intuitive and very easy to use, as well as powerful, reliable, and bullet-proof. ProPlex always works!”
