The Netherlands – The new MIMIK cultural centre situated next to the IJssel river has been fitted out with a number of Infinity’s professional theatre lighting fixtures. TS-260C7 Profile engines equipped with TLT-1230 Zoom lenses and Irises, TF-260C7 Fresnels with barndoors and TCYC-7 Cycloramas were used by Rolight to provide the desired illumination.

In the new MIMIK in Deventer, The Netherlands, a theatre, four movie theatres and a grand café are merged into a cultural experience. Open all day and easily accessible, its programme aims to surprise visitors time and time again. MIMIK follows up on the success of film house De Keizer (the emperor) and Theater Bouwkunde (Building Science theatre). Combining both with hospitable catering creates a vivid meeting place that ticks all the boxes for current and future generations. The theatre is fitted with a retractable grandstand and can be transformed into a 162m² (1,740ft²) festivity hall with the push of a button. Situated along the river IJssel, the foyer and bar on the first floor offer a great view on the surroundings.

To implement the appropriate internal lighting in the cinema rooms and theatre, Rolight has been asked to advise, supply and install the necessary equipment. They have chosen the Infinity Signature Series TS-260C7 Profile Engine and TF-260C7 Fresnel fixtures to accommodate the professional environment of MIMIK. In total, 50 TS-260C7 Profile engines were combined with 50 Infinity TLT-1230 15-35°Zoom lenses and 50 Infinity Irises to provide lighting in the spaces. They were augmented by 22 TF-260C7 Fresnel fixtures that were fitted with barndoors. Nine Infinity TCYC-7 Cyclorama luminaires were added to provide endless background illumination possibilities in the theatre.

Together with famous French lighting company Robert Juliat, Highlite International BV has developed its Infinity Signature Series to offer a high-end professional lighting solution. With their highly accurate and calibrated colours all fixtures in the series provide a CRI of over 96, which guarantees natural and vivid colours. Sophisticated temperature and linearity drift compensation for all LEDs and various professional implementations like 16-bit virtual dimming and RGB, CMY and HSI colour control are used to achieve maximum performance. The custom designed silent cooling system guarantees safe operation of the 260 Watt Lumiled colour engine in the TS-260C7 and TF-260C7 fixtures and should ensure a lifetime of enjoyable performance to technical staff, performers and visitors of MIMIK.
