June 2014, Krakow – The twenty-first of June is the longest day of the year and the shortest night; the summer solstice. Every year on the same date many Polish cities hold the Wianki Music Festival – chief among them Krakow. With tons of fireworks, a wide variety of musical offerings and an impressive array of FALCON searchlights, the banks of the Vistula near the Wawel hill this year were bathed in light and sound – a summer spectacle of a particularly spectacular variety!

Lighting designer Pawel “Spider” Pajak (Fish Eye) set the powerful coloured beams of FALCON searchlights dancing in the night sky as fireworks detonated all around them in a wide variety of colours and shapes. Krakow was aglow and spectators were enthralled.

A&O Technology’s involvement in the event through the client TSE took the form of sixteen FALCON BEAM colour 3000W and thirty of the innovative xenon/LED hybrid FALCON CMY LED VIDEO luminaires supported by trained technicians. One challenge the event posed was the great distance over which the searchlight network extended: the FALCON BEAM colour 3000W searchlights were stationed at 30-metre intervals along the river bank over a length of just under 500 metres. There, too, the batteries of fireworks for the great display were installed. The FALCON CMY LED VIDEO luminaires were used as xenon/LED hybrid searchlights arranged in six groups of five on 1.5-metre platforms. It was their role to provide the crowning moment of the festival with a 15-minute, timecode-controlled show. The searchlights were controlled from the opposite bank of the river via wireless DMX. Two technicians from A&O Technology had been despatched to set up the FALCON searchlights for the big day and establish the network.
