A multi-million dollar lighting upgrade, inspired by the world’s great arenas, focuses dual illuminated tubing and the ability to do three dimensional effect lighting, making Mansion the first nightclub in the USA to provide 360 degrees of multi-dimensional imagery.

Other features include a sky cam that can shoot celebrities, DJs and revelers from overhead and project them on any screen in the venue as seen on stadium jumbotrons.

AUDIO/VISUAL SPECS:
Using 675 meters of dual illuminated custom acrylic diffused tubes, Mansion’s custom ceiling has the ability to do three dimensional lighting effects along the art deco peninsula made up of 21,600 RGB pixels. Along the ceiling’s center cove are 3600 1.5 watt RGB crystal diffused pendants, which together span 48′ X 60′ in dimension. To control these two items alone, is a Madrix Ultimate system, which drives 144 universes of DMX sectored by 19 Data Gates.

Accentuating 360 degrees of Mansion’s 40,000 square foot interior walls are 180 1.5 watt RGB crystal diffused pendants that accentuate wall finishes, and 400 meters of cove lighting placed between each panel yet each pixel is independently controllable. Show lighting alone features twenty Elation platinum 5R Beams, 4 Elation Design Beams 300 and 4 Coemar stage Light Blinders. Mansion’s stage features two grand high resolution 7mm pitch LED viewing screens measuring 9′ X 10′ and contain 122,800 pixels per screen, as well as 50 20 mm pitch Elation 1024 flat and curved LED panels, and 6 Elation P06 flat panels 6 mm pitch LED creating 73,728 pixels.

Mansion also now features a premiere Funktion One sound system that has been recently upgraded and reconfigured. F1’s new F221 dual 21 subwoofers have been added under the stage on vibration platforms and F218 dual 18 subwoofers have been flown in clusters with the F1 Res4 mid/high speakers to further extend their range.

Funktion One/Sound Investment’s Todd Konecny states, “Mansion’s newly configured sound system is an ideal balance between accuracy in reproduction and high energy output. Flying the bass speakers makes the system full range in the air while the subwoofers beneath the stage are in close proximity to the money seats and main dance floor provide the best sound in the world.”
