Visitors of musicals and show events but also of theatre and opera performances have high expectations with regard to vivid stage action, frequently also enriched with a little bit of “thrill“. Attractive effects of sound, lighting and above all motion optimally coordinated with each other are the prerequisite for positive visitor acceptance. A well-known example for this is the Helene Fischer Show Farbenspiel with the “flight of the bird“ above the audience. Essential for the success of such events is stage technology acting in secrecy, rightfully considered to be a particularly sophisticated segment of automation technology. Control units, converters, drives, sensor systems, interfaces, communication technologies and radio technology, all these typical automation elements taking effect behind, above and under the stage. Planned and implemented by special companies of plant engineering and construction – such as for instance Fülling+Partner Ingenieurgesellschaft GmbH – as well as tested and approved according to international safety standards, stage technology is the prerequisite for economic success of an entire industry! And for many years, the radio module DATAEAGLE® of Schildknecht AG has also been part of this “elite“ of automation components, providing for safe, wireless controlled motion sequences on stage and even in the audience area.
