The PS Teatr company delivered and installed all mechanical devices, i.e. five lighting bridges, barbells for decoration, a revolving stage, a transport trapdoor at the back of the stage and an additional transport trapdoor in the back room, which was to cooperate with the existing mechanical trapdoor. For all this, of course, there was a control system. In addition, many mobile devices were installed, including point winches and sliding cable reels. An important part of the entire project was technological lighting with lighting devices and a control system. Among others, devices from brands such as ETC, Martin, Robert Juliat and City Theatrical were delivered and installed.
The basis of the project was flexibility in receiving and sending multimedia signals. The idea was to send and receive a signal from the stage at every possible point designated by the investor. Therefore, it was decided to use a dual signal distribution system based on SDI and twisted pair using the HDBaseT protocol. Everything is mixed in an automatic matrix managed from the control room via LAN or directly. The challenge for the whole was to develop wireless systems, because the entire building is under the protection of the conservator. It was impossible to forge or lay cables outside in gutters, so an important element was the selection of devices that will work stably in difficult conditions. The entire area had to be covered with a network by appropriate setting of access points, the location of which was difficult by the protection of the conservator. The main element of the delivery were projectors with a brightness of 10,000 ANSI lumens, which had to meet such criteria as mobility and quiet operation. In addition, a preview system was made that allows the operating technician or the sound engineer to see exactly what is happening both in the audience and on the stage, even with the curtain closed, which is possible thanks to the installed two cameras that are facing the entrances on the left and right side of the stage. . The cameras are adapted to work in the dark, so even when the lights go out, the operator knows exactly how the action is going and whether the actors have positioned themselves in the right places to start a given scene.
