Elite Multimedia Aquires Hedgehog 4 Lighting Consoles For Growing Lighting Department

Leading Concert and Event Production Company Meets Demands with New Lighting Consoles

Nashville, April 29, 2014 Elite Multimedia Productions (EMP), a Nashville-based audio, video and lighting concert and event production company, purchased a total of five HedgeHog 4 lighting consoles in order to meet the demands of its expanding lighting department.

Elation Lighting began distributing High End Systems’ compact, dependable console that is ideal for churches, corporate productions and nightclubs in the Americas, India and Southeast Asia in late 2013. EMP will be taking full advantage of the HedgeHog 4’s strengths by initially sending them out on the 2014 Student Life tours.

“The HedgeHog 4 is the perfect small format console for several of our clients,” said Jason “Cannonball” Jenkins, EMP’s head of lighting. “Many of our clients don’t need a full format console for their events. The HedgeHog provides us with proven reliability of the Hog platform in a package that is small and cost effective. We are excited to be able to offer this new console and look forward to continuing expansion of our relationship with Elation, High End and Freed Sales.”

The HedgeHog 4 is designed for small to mid level shows and events, and is compact and lightweight enough to easily take on a plane. It’s the smallest of its kind, yet runs off the same software as other Hog consoles. The new console also has the same programming layout as the RoadHog 4 and can load show files from any range, making it extremely flexible and easy to use; that’s what made continuing EMP’s relationship with Elation Lighting an obvious choice.

“We are excited to have Elite Multimedia adding the HedgeHog 4 and eNode 4 ArtNet to DMX routers to their inventory as part of their full-service rental package and are extremely pleased to be partnering with such a well-respected and growing company,” commented Eric Loader, Elation’s director of sales. “The console has long set the standard for lighting control and its flexibility is ideal for the wide variety of events and productions that Elite handles.”
