LOS ANGELES — Chauvet Professional Nexus 4x4 wash lights performed next to top singers Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber during the two-day Jingle Ball concert produced by KIIS-FM radio station at the Nokia Theater. As preeminent fixtures in the show, 16 Nexus 4x4 wash lights accompanied artists including OneRepublic, Ne-Yo, Ellie Goulding, Jonas Brothers, Ke$ha, Sammy Adams, Flo Rida and more.
“It was a turntable stage, which rotated back and forth,” said Todd Roberts, owner of Visions Lighting, a production rental company production that provided the fixtures. “Normally we would have turntable walls, but instead we built a truss arch over the center of the turntable and we mounted eight Nexus 4x4 fixtures on each side, thus becoming predominant lights.”
With each table rotation, a Nexus 4x4 light appeared behind the artist. Visions Lighting’s Brandon Dunning was the house lighting designer for the show, and part of the team that came up with the design.
OneRepublic’s LD Erik Parker commented on the performance of the Nexus 4x4 on stage. "These panels allow for great versatility with their bright RGB LEDs and the pixel-mapping capabilities,” Parker said. “Nexus 4x4 is an awesome fixture with tons of options for uses."
Echoing Parker’s comment, Roberts said he simply loved Nexus 4x4. “I like that it is capable of pixel mapping and the fact that it’s not just an effect light. It features great output and superior lenses, and it’s powerful enough to get creative and use it in different ways.”
