The Phoenician staff was extremely pleased with the final result in the ballroom; the possibilities and configurations for the ballroom setup are almost endless.
Section one of the ballroom can be controlled by the GRAFIK 6000 system, while sections two and three are hosting theatrical events and are being controlled by two separate stageboards. Whether an event requires all 22,000 square feet of the ballroom or only one small section, Lutron light controls or theatrical equipment can operate the lighting for any application. With the 2Link option, changing to a theatrical control is as easy as plugging in a stageboard.
After the success of the ballroom installation, the Phoenician management decided they wanted to update the second Orion system that controlled lighting in the other resort facilities, including the pool area, tennis courts, and other public spaces. "Making this modification required Lutron to cut over the new control system carefully to ensure a transparent change for our staff and patrons," said Cooper. "Throughout the installation and after its completion, Lutron has provided us with innovative ideas, customized solutions, and qualified field service personnel." The installation went smoothly because, according to Cooper, "Lutron field service was cooperative, flexible, and adaptable to meeting our needs in resolving challenges – no matter what they were."
"Our partnership with Lutron," added Cooper, "allows the Phoenician Resort the flexibility of control that our guests and their technical directors demand."
