Rihanna switched on the Christmas lights at Westfield Shopping Centre in London, with Arcstream AV supporting the star’s appearance with a spectacular laser show.
Arcstream AV provided four lasers for the performance including a 10watt Full Colour, two 6watt Green OPS systems and a 8watt Green OPS, to create a stunning effect as Rihanna pushed the button on Westfield’s Christmas installations.
Arcstream AV’s Managing Director Neil Dickinson explained;
“Westfield was looking for an effect which would engage the huge crowd this event always pulls in, and lasers are a brilliant way of creating an effect in a large space. We used 20 diffraction mirrors placed throughout the atrium area sending beams literally everywhere to cover the massive audience.”
Simon Jones, Technical Manager of Westfield London commented;
“The lasers where a perfect solution for a light switch on to give it extra big effects, being the events space is very bright two 10watt units proved to overcome this. The improvement in laser technology in the past 10 years still amazes me, to how small, light, low power and easy to work with from the days of large units with water pumps and 3 phase power. The lasers added the perfect effect to give the audience the WOW factor”
