Eos Titanium for Royal Exchange Manchester

The Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, UK has invested in a new Eos-family lighting system, with two ETC Eos Titanium desks at the helm, an Ion console and a Remote Processor Unit for backup.

Richard Owen, Head of Lighting at the Royal Exchange, was one of the major decision makers for the purchase. He said: “We were looking for something that had a lot of future proofing, so it would still be working well in 20 years."

The Royal Exchange has four permanent board operators, plus freelancers who come in every so often to assist when necessary. All of them will need to operate the main desk and the Ion in the studio and be able to control the conventional and LED fixtures.

Richard said: “We have a very short production period of no more than four days, so we were looking for a desk that would be easy for operators to learn to use, and yet we’d still get the best use out of. For many operators, even if they’ve not used an Eos line desk before, they’ll be familiar with the programming syntax.”

Rob Beamer, Business Development Manager at ETC dealer Stage Electrics, which sold the equipment to the Royal Exchange, said: “The theatre is made up of a main in-the-round auditorium and a studio theatre, with a stunning auditorium in what used to be the world’s busiest cotton exchange, which really needs to be seen to be believed.”
