Blackpool Council wanted their fountain installation to have more flexibility than with the simple playback style system previously installed so they could tailor made looks for events being held within the area and have upgraded to a ShowCAD Artist Control System.

The ShowCAD Artist has been linked into the Brilliance – Blackpool Control room and is run via a second Wireless DMX System. Each of the 61 DMX heads has individual Motor & Height Control, each of these also has an LED fitting recessed into the base.

Artist has been programmed with around 50 Cues set to randomize throughout the day and night so the display always look different.

The spectacular Fountain system was installed by Invent Water using Oase products. Artist utilizes it’s in built effects engine to perform chases and waveforms for the both the fountains and LED’s, Artist also turns the display on and off using it’s real time clock.
