Live Legends:
The Unit Showcontrol & LiveLAB join forces in a new company

On the 1st of February 2016, The Unit Showcontrol and LiveLAB merged into one company. From their modern office in Abcoude, filled with energy, creativity and enthusiasm, they will work towards the realization of their international ambitions.

“We would like to welcome you into our new world!”

01. Concept

02. Design

03. Control

Our production process can be divided into these three main pillars.
The services and products we offer include in these phases are:

  • Concept development and visualization
  • Content and show production
  • Video, lighting and set design
  • Directing and operators
  • Studio Facilities and Showcontrol

Concept

We like to start our working process in an early stage. Even before you exactly know what you want, let alone how. As a team-player we gladly discuss with you which goals you want to achieve, which needs you have, and what you want to communicate, so we can brainstorm about the way to get there.

Design

We grew up in theaters around the world. That means we understand the magic of creating experiences with the simplest of techniques. But we have also operated some of the biggest stadium shows imaginable. When programmed properly, a single spot could create a bigger impact than 200 hysterically moving lights.

Control

All these plans and concepts may sound nice and all, but without the proper technology to support them it’s worth nothing. Indeed a lighting desk or media server is just a tool, but if it comes down to reliability we only depend on top-level equipment.

International

Amsterdam is our origin, but we are used to traveling around the globe. Working abroad can sometimes bring extra challenges to a production, but as we’ve toured around for a while, we know how to deal with local parties and work in different time zones.
