His Majesty’s Theatre Perth Reburbishment

His Majesty’s Theatre Perth is currently undergoing a technical refurbishment to its theatrical control equipment both in terms of audio and lighting control.

The refurbishment for the Department of Housing and Works, was designed by Vision Lighting (Melb) in conjunction with Lincolne Scott. The contractor JANDS Australia are working very carefully on the heritage listed building to install the new state of the art Audio and Lighting control systems without any damage to the building.

The Dynalite lighting control system was specified and Light Application are proud to have been trusted to supply and program the control equipment with the somewhat “tight” installation window of only 4 days between scheduled productions.
One of the challenges is that the existing control wiring (some 30yrs old) would need to be re-used, and the multiple control points in the foyers, backstage, and Bio box will now require both preset control and channel by channel “live” adjustment to be available to the theatre staff. The system will also feature remote control and full integration of all of the dimmers to the fully computerized theatre lighting control system.
The dimmers selected for this project were the DLE1210, with inbuilt “dual protocols” so that they simultaneously speak natively both DyNet® (for the programmable wall panels) and the industry standard DMX512 (for the stage lighting control). This seamless integration was considered a priority for the client and operational staff.

We are also providing the handheld Dynalite portable LCD screen programmer. Not only does this unit enable the end user to plug in and control the system from any point, including listing the area’s of control, the individual channel names in each area, their current levels, and current preset, but it allows any of these parameters to be changed live..
