If you can’t get to the dance club, let the dance club come to you—that is, if you’ll be at the Monaco Yacht Show next month. A/V specialist Videoworks will rock the exhibits with a stand that in part looks and feels like a superyacht disco.
More than a handful of yachts have alfresco and enclosed deck areas that turn into dance floors. To do so, these yachts have more than just great sound systems, of course. Some of the best A/V companies in the yachting industry customize the setups for the owners. This means, among other things, high-end lighting and special visual effects. Videoworks, which has 25 years of experience in the industry, is among them. It has professionals throughout Europe as well as in Fort Lauderdale.
At the show, the Videoworks superyacht disco stand will draw largely on what the best nightclubs offer, and therefore what owners want onboard. So, for instance, you’ll find lighting incorporating pixelated RGBW LED strips. If you’re unfamiliar with these abbreviations, briefly, RGBW means you get proper white in addition to the rest of the colors. Pixel LED strips mean there’s control over each segment of the strip individually, for special lighting effects. Videoworks is customizing the lighting design for color changes with the music, as well as rhythm-keeping to the beat of the music.
While you’re at the stand, you can discover how Videoworks is increasingly using artificial intelligence to improve life onboard, simultaneously saving energy consumption. Energy meters and detectors that use Bluetooth technology form the backbone of a “smart” system. This system essentially learns owners’ and guests’ usage habits, regularly responding to everyone’s requirements. It’s unobtrusive, too, since it doesn’t use cameras.
Videoworks’ stand at the Monaco Yacht Show is DS87, in the Darse Sud tent.
