Medialon’s Show Control system technology has been used on “One Piece – For the new World”, the new indoor ride at Huis Ten Bosch theme park. 

The Huis Ten Bosch theme park, based in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan, recreates a Dutch town with canals, windmills, gardens and architecture.   The theme park features a variety of attractions including 3D technology theatres, a haunted house, a replica of the Domtoren (Dom Tower) of Utrech, a boat ride related to the hit comic series “One Piece” and now a new indoor ride based on “One Piece” characters and story.

Tokyo-based TV & Event Lighting company, Fuji Lighting Technology’s Designer Junichi Nakahara and Kyushyu region-based Tatsuya Ifuku from Stage Lighting company Kyushyu Stage, selected Medialon for the new ride which opened in July 2012.

The show programming was mainly by Mr. Tatsuya Ifuku, and Mileruntech Co Ltd., Medialon’s products distributor in Japan, who helped with the show programming, and also trained the staff on Medialon Control System.

Mileruntech Co Ltd. also designed a user-friendly Graphical User Interface for Huis Ten Bosch’s staff., allowing them to easily monitor the show remotely.

All the AV devices are controlled and synchronized thanks to one Medialon Showmaster PRO embedded show controller. The Showmaster PRO controls:
– 1x Medialon MAS PRO 32 channels audio serverMedialon Show Control for Huis Ten Bosch Theme Park in Japan
– 1x BSS/BLU -800
– 3x BSS/BLU 160
– 3x Panasonic Projectors PTD-6000
– 1x NEC Projector
– 17x Media Players
– 2x DMX Recorder
– the ride lighting and shooting system control
– the rack power control

The Medialon MAS PRO 32 CobraNet channels audio server controls the audio tracks and effects.

Usami Kouichi, General Manager at Mileruntech Co. Ltd., said, “Mr. Junichi Nakahara and Mr. Tatsuya Ifuku felt that using Medialon was highly valued for real-time programming.

“They appreciated the fact they could use Showmaster Editor Software from anywhere in the attraction’s building, by using the Wifi and a laptop. It allowed them to make changes in their program and to test them in real time.

“Medialon’s ability to control a wide variety of products using Low Level Communicator (that allow to control any devices of your choice by easily creating your own serial, TCP/IP or Midi driver), even for non-standard brand of media players installed on the ride, was really reassuring for both programmers and designers’ of One Piece attraction.”
