Green-GO keep Nephew’s family connected

With short load-in times, the need for a fail-safe production network was paramount on the national tour by rock band Nephew, according to Johan Kvartborg of distributor Light Partners (LP).

The company provided technical support for tour supplier Comtech, which deployed an Ethernet distribution system, dmXLAN, by manufacturer ELC Lighting. This carried signal for “complex”, pixel-mapped visuals as well as a digital intercom, Green Go provided by LP for production communications. 

The show visited venues including KB Hallen, (cap. 4,900) in Frederiksberg, Ceres Arena (5,000) in Aarhus and Odense Congress Center (8,000).

“We didn’t have time for fails on the network,” says Kvartborg. “We used the ELC dmXLAN software a lot when merging into other systems. We had a lot of universes [visual programming systems] for pixel-mapping, so it was very helpful to see the system was working without lighting up the units in the change-over and revealing the setup before the concert.”

Green-GO’s kept the band’s lighting designer, Theis Wermuth, in contact with the production’s lighting, video and followspot technicians, as well as others on the crew.
