One Million Watts...On Cue

That's whatis required to change scenes out at the Jones Beach Marine Stadium, the worlds largest open air theatre. This nimaginative lighting" got rave notices in the reviews of "Night in Venice", the first production to play here. Gradations in lighting to indicate any time of night or day, sunshine or storm, to give dramatic emphasis, for subtle changes in mood - all are painted in light from the master control booth high above the stadium. Ten remote switchboards containing Ward Leonard Hysterset electronic controls and reactance dimmers deliver one million watts of pre-determined illumination on cue.

This is the largest lighting control installation in the world, and it accounted for about one quarter of the total cost of the entire project. Only the very best of control devices could have handled the vast and highly complex lighting of a lOS-foot stage from a distance of over 300 feet. Thatis why the Trumbull Electric Department of General Electric made Ward Leonard Hystersets an integral part of the entire installation.

Ward Leonard engineers Wlll be glad to work withhyou on any PRE-ST ONTROL PANEL in center provides preselection problem of dimmer control, regardless of its Size or intricacy.
