LEA Award 2017

The Live Entertainment Award (LEA) was presented at Musikmesse Frankfurt in 2017 as well. The event took place in the venerable Festhalle Frankfurt. In addition to a large number of moving trusses, which were moved using Movecat chain hoists of the VMK-S 500 type, other kinetic elements were used as well.

WinchOne system with 169 illuminated spheres and motion detection

The highlight of the awarding ceremony were 169 illuminated spheres that were suspended from a WinchOne system. Using motion detection, the system ensured that an artist could move underneath the spheres and that these spheres could be lifted in this area. The 40-centimeter spheres were arranged at a distance of 1×1 meters from each other and weighed 1600 kilograms together with the winches and the framework.

Two-piece LED wall and vertical rotation

In addition, a two-part LED wall with a weight of more than 1500 kilograms, a width of 7 meters and a height of 4 meters was moved along a 26 meter long EHB track. Both halves of the wall could be moved independently and rotated around a vertical axis. The traverse including track had a weight of 1000 kilograms.
