Plainfield High School’s new theater and eSports arena feature exciting Pixel RibbonLyte installations from Acolyte. PureTek Group specified custom Pixel RibbonLyte fixtures in AS23 channels with square milky lenses for both projects. Fourteen long Pixel RibbonLyte fixtures bracket the walls and ceiling and run under the balcony to create moving light displays in the 1,600-seat theater. Inspiring programmable light shows are operated with daisy-chained C4 Live controllers installed in the ceiling high above the auditorium. C4 Live controllers use SPI technology (with more than 50 built-in protocols) to quickly transmit synchronized data over long distances. The eSports arena contains 20 state-of-the-art gaming stations. Teen gamers compete in singles or teams in Rocket League, Valorant, Fortnite, Minecraft and Madden. The arena ceiling is covered with crisscrossed diagonal lighting fixtures that can be tuned to match the Plainfield Cardinals’ team colors – or the colors of their opponents. Lighting is kept static during gameplay. But victory triggers stimulating preprogrammed light shows in the winner’s colors. Plainfield High and PureTek Group put their light in motion!
