BRUSSELS – NOXX² Antwerp completes its redesign with two ArKaos Stage servers driving video on a 30 sq. meter 3D sculpture (323 sq. ft) and a 300 sq. meter (3,229 sq ft) LED ceiling.
Five years have gone by since NOXX² Antwerp first opened its doors to the public in September 2007. A home to DJs and events, NOXX² is also a stylish venue which can accommodate up to 2,500 clubbers in five different areas.
The management recently decided to renew the design of the Main Room with a 3D mapping projection driven by an ArKaos Stage media server. They also switched to another ArKaos Stage server for displaying visuals on the LED web that covers the entire ceiling.
In the redesigned Main Room, a 3D sculpture forms the body for the revolutionary 3D mapping projection, something distinctive in the Belgian club scene. Built above the DJ booth, the 3D shape is composed of more than 80 surfaces animated with custom content designed by Konstruktiv.
The new Video Mapper extension, running on a dedicated ArKaos Stage media server, allowed fast and easy setup of the various animations on each surface with pixel-precise alignment. Using MediaMaster Pro, the club operator can also quickly program new visuals directly from the lighting desk - a grandMA2 full size - such as texts and animated logos that will be projected on the sculpture.
Above, a 300 sq. meter (3,229 sq ft) Color Web turns the ceiling into a giant LED screen. It is comprised of more than 120 DMX universes and was easily programmed into the club’s grandMA2 from a second ArKaos Stage server running MediaMaster Pro with the LED Mapper extension.
“We have found that ArKaos’ new Stage server is the perfect solution for our club. They are affordable, fast, reliable and easy to manage,” says NOXX² General Manager Bart Clerckx.
