2022 sees The Voice Thailand entering its eighth season. The jury members include Thai pop star Kong Saharat, the “Godfather of Thai Hip Hop” Joey Boy, singer and actress Jennifer Kim as well as chart-hitter Pop Pongkul. For the production of the studio and live shows, the makers of The Voice Thailand use over 180 Cameo lights from the Rental Park of the Thai Cameo distributor L&E Lighting & Equipment PCL.
“Cameo is a relative newcomer to the Thai event technology market,” explains Arocha Kittivittayakul, Product Manager at L&E. “We are therefore all the more pleased that those responsible – Pat Jareeyatana, Managing Director of EXIT365 Company Limited, owner of The Voice All Stars Thailand licence, and the two lighting designers Arthorn Luempetch and Junchay Baomaroeng – showed great interest in the fixtures and ultimately decided on Cameo as a brand.”
For lighting in the TV studio, the lighting designers rely on 48 OPUS® H5 beam spot wash hybrid moving heads to effectively set the scene on stage from the background. 9 OPUS® SP5 profile moving heads are aimed at the coaches. 28 F2 FC and 16 Cameo F4 FC Fresnel spotlights are also used as additional stage components for front and audience lighting. Furthermore, 18 PixBar 500 Pros have been installed on the floor to showcase the characteristic The Voice hand figures.
22 PixBar 650 C PRO LED bars are used at various markup points in the adjacent rooms to create the atmospheric staging of interviews with the talented performers, family members and friends. 42 wash lights from the Cameo ZENIT® series have also been positioned in the interview, backstage and green room areas.
The challenge for Luempetch and Baomaroeng was to illuminate the different show areas in a uniform and camera-friendly manner. As is customary with The Voice format, in addition to the musical performances and the jury talk in the large studio, the events in the interview and backstage areas also contribute to the overall impression of the format. In accordance with TV specifications, the lighting components had to deliver the highest possible CRI value as well as a camera-friendly refresh rate with minimal noise level.
“The lighting designers have confirmed that with Cameo, they are now able to present the artists’ performances and the scenery much more vividly than before. They are also enthusiastic about the functionality and flexibility, as they are now able to implement the light scenes in accordance with their creative ideas.”
