Elation Lighting and Video System Throws Spectacular Show on Third Royal Caribbean Quantum Class Ship

Ovation of the Seas took its maiden voyage in April as the third Quantum class luxury cruise liner from Royal Caribbean International to feature an onboard Elation Professional lighting and video system. It follows the successful launch of Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, both of which sail with a full complement of energy-efficient Elation Professional products.

Ovation of the Seas boasts the same lighting and video package template as the previous two Quantum class ships, says Christopher Vlassopulos, Superintendent SLVR & Architectural Lighting for Royal Caribbean International. Christopher coordinated the design and specification for all the entertainment equipment in all three Quantum class ships’ public spaces, including the entertainment lighting systems.

Christopher specified and designed lighting for the entertainment spaces on Ovation of the Seas together with Benjamin Couling of Tristwell Solutions, the company responsible for installation and commissioning. Built at Germany’s Meyer Werft shipyard, media and entertainment system integration for many of the public areas was provided by Amptown System Company (ASC), including system engineering, supply, installation and commissioning.
 
Ovation of the Seas, which holds up to 4,180 guests, will sail the Chinese seas with a homport in Tianjin, China. The ship features Quantum Class amenities, including the North Star capsule which soars above the ship, a skydiving experience and onboard bumper cars to name a few.

Like the two Quantum class ships before her, Ovation of the Seas is an environmentally friendly smartship that sets new standards in terms of energy-efficient entertainment lighting systems onboard. The large number of Elation LED lighting and video products fit the smartship ethos perfectly with significant savings in power and dollars. By switching from incandescent to LED, Royal Caribbean will realize millions of dollars in savings over the lifetime of Royal Caribbean ships, according to Vlassopulos. 
 
The Elation lighting and video systems onboard Ovation are used to visually enhance the ship’s main entertainment and relaxation areas. In Two70, the ship’s multifunctional multi-story entertainment space, stage shows are performed beneath an Elation lighting rig of Platinum Wash ZFX Pro, Satura Spot LED Pro, Platinum Spot LED Pro II and Platinum Beam 5R Extreme moving heads.

In the state-of-the-art Royal Theatre, productions feature a professional rig of LED-based Elation Platinum Wash ZFX Pro, Satura Spot LED Pro, Platinum Beam 5R Extreme and Platinum Spot 35R Pro moving heads. The Royal Theatre also uses three 20mm pixel pitch Elation EPV20 LED screens for displaying a variety of on-screen graphics. Elation lighting features in another of the ship’s entertainment spaces, Music Hall, a two-story multi-use venue where guests can enjoy a range of activities and live performances. Accommodating around 400 guests, an Elation rig of Platinum Spot LED Pro II and Platinum Wash ZFX Pro moving heads is capable of accommodating any event. 
 
In the Royal Esplanade, a multi-level thoroughfare lined with boutiques, clubs, restaurants and bars that runs along the length of the ship, Platinum Wash LED Zoom and Platinum Spot LED Pro II fixtures provide mood lighting effects and are used each night for shows and special events. And in one of the ship’s more popular active areas, SeaPlex, a sports and entertainment space, Elation Design Wash LED Pro and Platinum Spot LED Pro II moving heads provide color and pattern while a high-resolution 6 mm pixel pitch Elation EPV6 video wall displays graphics for both sporting and entertainment events.

Specialty architectural effect lighting has been incorporated into several of the ship’s outdoor areas including the pool, crew and sports decks where, in the evening hours, Elation ELAR 108 PAR RGBW fixtures light up the decks in vibrant color.
