CueCores installed in 170 Basic Fit sport clubs
During the last year Dutch-based installer First Impression Audiovisueel was commissioned to supply an audio, video and light installation for Basic Fit. Basic Fit is a large chain of sport clubs located throughout the Netherlands and Belgium. First Impression found a suitable control solution in the form of the CueCore solid-state control.
The CueCore is a lighting controller for permanent installations manufactured by Dutch company Visual Productions BV. The device is completely solid-state, with no moving parts; it is an extremely secure and low-maintenance installation control solution that has only a minimal power consumption. All operating and programming is done through its dynamic web interface.
In 170 locations of Basic Fit “feature video walls” are now installed in the group lesson rooms. These “feature video walls” are made up from a combination of LED lights, speakers, narrowcasting players and HD LED Displays for the virtual fitness systems.
For the control element the CueCore was selected by First Impression as it can receive UDP messages, has contact closures and is solid-state. The narrowcasting video player sends UDP messages to trigger cues programmed in the CueCore. In each location one CueCore has been installed. Each CueCore can be controlled locally by four buttons connected to the onboard GPI contact closures. The CueCores are also set up in a network so that the virtual fitness content can be managed, changed and controlled remotely from the Basic Fit headquarters.
The CueCore has helped to enabled the feature video walls to become a perfect corporate communication channel for Basic Fit. The systems enable a completely new experience with lessons that can now be followed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Equipment installed to date includes 170 CueCores, 1020 Samsung MD55 professional 55” Full HD LED displays, 340 Scala Narrowcasting players and 2040 Showtec LED Par 7 Tri.
