Winners of a prestigious PLASA Show 2022 Award for Innovation, Sauca Live Light, are pleased to announce the launch of the new company at London’s PLASA Show 2022. Although Sauca Live Light is a brand-new tech start-up, the board of directors has long and wide experience within the lighting and visual industry.
The board of directors is made up by Chief Operations Officer, Andy Porter, famed for his technical support of Glastonbury pyramid stage visuals and other such world-class events; Chief Marketing Officer, Steve Warren of Avolites and Ai video, with 40 years experience of lighting and video distribution; Chief Executive Officer, Vanessa Bailey, who brings extensive experience of innovation and entrepreneurship, and Chief Technology Officer, Simon Carter, who is the product creator and coder.
Carter is also the past creator of Pixeldrive and the Radlite video server as used by Coldplay main stage at Glastonbury 2002 and 2005. While Sauca Live Light Chairman, is none other than Martin Hawthorn, the creator and builder of the respected and renowned visual production supplier Hawthorn Theatrical. Live Light is the first product under the Sauca brand.
Live Light comprises a licensable software management package and a Hardware Data Uploader (HDU) unit which connects to any lighting console or media server. The HDU takes an Artnet input and transfers lighting data to the cloud, allowing lighting and visual designers to directly control the colour screens of audience smartphones, watches and wearables. All that the audience needs to do is point their phone cameras at the QR Code on the iMag screens on stage and they immediately create huge mappable visual canvases with less than 100 millisecond latency between flash button and phone colour change.
The optional and additional phone App will enable access to the phone camera flash to create Mexican Waves and other effects using that high brightness source. All of this is achieved with an affordable price point and with excellent sustainability benefits.
