ARC Hyperion at the National Philharmonic in Vilnius, Lithuania

The renewed Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society has opened its gates thanks to a unique lighting system.

Nearly a hundred of Spotlight’s recessed downlights and over 30 new ARC remote controlled Hyperions have been specifically adapted to space.

“For over two decades now, we have been installing social and cultural spaces of various sizes, so we are happy to take on non-standard tasks. The entire lighting system is designed especially for this hall. We were looking for an implementation solution because no such system exists on the market. We have managed to achieve this only by uniting different manufacturers. This system is undoubtedly exclusive in Lithuania,” the Head of STS, Laurynas Paškevičius, says.

“For both the Philharmonic Society and other art events, we can now take the most out of the current setup to create unique lighting designs and to do it all live. The precision and the total noiseless operation are an added value, well noticed and appreciated during the opening events, both by the audience and the musicians”, as reported by Norvydas Birulis, STS lighting engineer.


Thank you STS from SPOTLIGHT, with appreciation for the warm and enthusiastic feedback in such days of silence.

Light is also movement

Light is also movement. For this reason we offer a wide range of custom solutions for DMX motorisations and pole-operated systems.

Our solutions come from an experience gained over the years, the deep knowledge of the products on the market and the specific needs of the Entertainment world.

These are customizations designed and developed from time to time to offer the solution that best suits the customer’s needs.

Our motorised systems are able to move any theatrical and television lighting fixtures of our production and of the other main brands, but also smoke machines up to video projectors.

The ARC SYSTEM yokes are designed for all those who want to maintain the superior lighting performance of classical products, highly increasing the flexibility of use with a great saving of time in focusing and repositioning.

The system, available with 2 or 3 parameters, allows the high precision focusing of pan and tilt, as well as of the focus or the iris through a 16 bit DMX signal.

The system consists of a power supply and a DMX reader that controls 2 or 3 DC motors as well as supplying power and DMX signal for other possible accessories such as color changers, gobo rotators, etc.

The focusing is particularly accurate thanks to the use in the pan and tilt of a double control both with encoder, for better speed control, and with potentiometer, for the constant memorisation of the position. This way you have absolutely soft movements even at low speeds as well as in acceleration / deceleration. In addition, the fixture keeps its position either in case of power failure (no reset) or forced displacement from its position (to change the lamp).

The motors are oversized and totally silent, with a mechanical safety clutch to prevent any possible crash/collision against obstacles and automatic shut off until the DMX command signal is reversed.

The horizontal rotation is more than 360° to avoid dark corners in the scene and 270° for the vertical one. The setting of the tilt, pan and focus limits menu allows to avoid the collisions with the scenographies, the positioning beyond the limit prescribed by the lamps or the zoom stroke according to the length of the luminaires.

In addition to theatrical and television use, the yokes are also used for positioning video projectors, smoke machines, loudspeakers, etc. with a maximum load limit of 30 kg.

The yokes can work either hanging from structures with fast-fit hooks already supplied, or removing the hooks, positioning them on the stage with a suitable stabilizing base.

If desired, the motorization can be switched off and the luminaires keep their position (to avoid unwanted starts for false maneuvers) and, thanks to the clutch, can be manually focused in case of lack of the console operator.

If you want to facilitate the focusing of your fixed luminaires through a DMX motorisation, consider whether to mount directly on your fixture a Spotlight ARC System yoke!

Zaryadye Moscow Concert Hall

The following News comes from Light Sound Journal, the first real multilingual world network for information about professional Entertainment. A real tool that allows professionals to get timely information on events and technical news of the sector all over the world. Many thanks to its staff for the great job done.


The opening of the Zaryadye Moscow Concert Hall, a significant event for the Russian capital, took place on the 8th of September 2018. The event had a high-profile guest list, attended by the President of Russia, the Prime Minister, the Head of the State Duma, the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill, alongside many other officials, politicians and cultural figures. The event’s gala concert was accompanied by the Mariinsky Theatre Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Valery Gergiev. Performing also were world -famous opera stars Anna Netrebko, Yusif Eyvazov, Ildar Abdrazakov, Albina Shagimuratova and Juan Diego Flores.

Zaryadye Park Moscow Spotlight Concert Hall


The first concert of the season, taking place the following day, featured the Russian National Orchestra conducted by Mikhail Pletnev, alongside opera soloists Krasimira Stojanova, Francesco Meli and Ildar Abdrazakov.

In his speech at the prestigious venue’s opening, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin stated that: “Moscow Concert Hall is to become the heart and soul of this unique park, here in the very heart of our capital, and to enrich the distinctive image of Moscow and the whole of Russia. It depicts the historical pride of our country and its eagerness to innovate and bring in the new. Zaryadye Concert Hall is a musical complex of the future, in the full sense of the word. Everybody who worked on this project worked for the benefit of all Moscowites.”

The DOKA Center Company began its work on the Zaryadye project in 2015, when the concept and technical elements were being designed. The company was actively involved in this phase. As to equipment volume and density, this project has been one of the most complicated cultural structures ever to be built in Russia.

Zaryadye Park Moscow Spotlight Concert Hall


The historical decision of making the park beside the Kremlin walls was made back in 2013. According to the project details, every corner of Zaryadye represents specific geographic zone of Russia – northern nature, forests, meadowland and steppe. The concert hall is situated in the eastern part of the Zaryadye park zone. The building is an important element of the park, featuring a mass of complex design and engineering solutions. There are two halls in the stage complex of the philharmonic hall, with the larger space seating 1600 and the smaller searing 400. The venue’s largest hall is second to none in Russia in terms of its level of mechanisation, with a vast number of inbuilt engineered solutions and technologies. Because of this, the venue is suitable for any type of event, from classical music concerts and theatrical performances, through to international conferences and touring entertainment. All of these options are possible by means of the modern mechanisation of the hall, alongside carefully selected lighting equipment.

Zaryadye Park Moscow Spotlight Concert Hall


The lighting rig of the hall consists of equipment, provided by several manufacturers, and specifically Spotlight:

Main Auditorium hall:

Lighting Fixtures

Movement Control

  • ARC STAGE/3 PLUS Remote controlled DMX Motorized Yoke for Fresnel – 49 pcs
  • ARC STAGE/2 Remote controlled DMX Motorized Yoke for Profile – 30 pcs
  • PO/3 Manual Pole Operated Yoke for Fresnel – 30 pcs

Small Auditorium hall:

Lighting Fixtures


This equipment is used for side and front lighting of the stage and the auditorium during TV filming. A high power rating of 450W allows for the luminaires to be used over long distances. RGBW and TW light systems help to colour the hall, as well as illuminate it with excellent levels of white light with the proper colour temperature, without the need for classic film filters or gels. Spotlight LED profile projectors are used in places in which it would have been impossible to place powerful halogen projectors due to their high heat output. The hall décor is constructed from valuable wood species, many of which shouldn’t be exposed to temperature changes. The proper selection of the equipment is helping to maintain the hall dressing for years to come, without disrupting the space’s acoustic properties.

Zaryadye Park Moscow Spotlight Concert Hall


Damir Ismagilov, chief lighting designer of the Bolshoi Theatre, took part in the designing of the stage lighting system of the hall. He commented that: “Zaryadye truly does make me smile. This comes initially from the lighting and technical fit-out of the concert complex. This is situated in a glorious architectural space, where we find a complicated and technically flexible combination of lighting equipment, capable of turning every event and concert into a unique performance. This energy and power makes Zaryadye a truly special place.”

The project of the concert hall was certainly unconventional, a sufficiently complicated concept in terms of technical design, yet turned into a reality through the joint efforts of many Russian and European companies.

Spotlight @ Marina Forum Regensburg

The transformation of a Slaughterhouse into a Meeting and Congress-Jewel which stands under monument protection

Since more than hundred years the old slaughterhouse has been in use and has been enlarged several times. After its closure in the 1990s the building has turned into a monument protected architectural jewel. Today the building is a one of a kind modern meeting and congress center.

The main-building of the old slaughterhouse, the “Zollingerhall” serves nowadays as a conference and concert hall and was named after the architect Friedrich Zollinger.

The label “Green Meetings” of the Marina Forum stands for sustainability, resource conservation and environmental protection. The label was also consistently implemented at the planning of the stage lighting. Efficient modern LED technology is used in the majority of the luminaires. In comparison to the purely scenic theater lighting the fixtures will have much longer working periods for conference use.

Due to the 80-90% lower power consumption the operating costs are significantly lower compared to the tungsten luminaires. About Joe Fortune Casino read here

The lighting rig is including several Spotlight PC LED 200 PO, Cyc LED 300 and Evolution 25 H and additionally one VD LED 450W followspot.

The conception of the lighting rig was carried out by Spotlight distributor Feiner Lichttechnik.
