Chauvet used to beatify New York's Hudson terrace

14 July 2008

Sean McGill and Michael Sinensky, co-owners of New York's iconic Webster Hall, have added yet another dimension to nightlife in the Big Apple with the creation of Hudson Terrace.

Part events hall and part nightclub, the 10,000-square foot venue caters to a corporate clientele weekdays. Weekends, it transforms itself into an elite nightclub.

The lighting design successfully incorporates elements that are versatile enough to suit the venue’s dual functions.

The space encompasses two floors of entertainment: a 6,000-square-foot lower level and a 4,000-square-foot semi-enclosed rooftop terrace.  Defining the lower level is a CHAUVET DV Wall video system covering the ceiling in two 15-square-foot sections, which provide visual interest to an oft-overlooked area of clubs.  Mounted in this manner, the LED video wall made it possible to bypass the use of a traditional screen, which would have necessitated a projector running the risk of being partially or fully blocked by guests.  

Complementing the video ceiling is a light show designed to please both corporate and nightclub crowds. Music and technical director Steven Petrik utilized a majority of CHAUVET fixtures fitted with LEDs, citing their “low energy consumption, extended life, and the lack of heat.”  

The system utilizes 12 Intimidator 2.0 HTI scanners, 41 COLORstrip LED strip wash lights, and 12 COLORsplash 196 LED pods.  Control of the lighting system is kept simple with the utilization of a CHAUVET DMX-40B controller
