Earlier this year, lighting installation at the Great Hall of the University of Sydney got a major upgrade.
With the new lighting installation, the existing heritage luminaires were upgraded and new lighting bars along the sides of the building with theatrical style luminaires were installed to highlight architectural features of the interior.
3S Lighting manufactured 'house' pendant luminaires and suspension accessories in single and twin configuration.
Suspended high up, under the timber truss roof, with aim to blend in with the background but provide functional light for the interior, as well as to up-light and to show the roof structure details, which have not been illuminated in the past.
DMX control gear provide great flexibility and each of the pendant has 3 control channels to 5 Xicato XTM LEDs.
