Istana Budaya

Nestling in the heart of Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur, Istana Budaya is Malaysia’s premier venue for all forms of theater, playing host to local and international performances, including operetta, opera, classical concerts, and musical theater. The venue had used the same stage machinery and controls for over 20 years, and the ‘Palace of Culture’ was in need of an update. We were approached to design and manage the upgrade process from start to finish. Phase 1 incorporated controls design and machinery upgrades for all under-stage components, including adding EtherCAT fieldbus communication and machine safety functions to achieve SIL3 throughout.

The technologies within our machinery and control systems enable installations to achieve the best-in-class Safety Integrity Level (SIL3). SIL3

Client Kementerian Kebudayaan & Kesenian Malaysia (Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture)

With the equipment in place, we provided on-site training to bring the venue’s technical teams up to speed with their new epiQ consoles, running on our proprietary iQ powered by Navigator software. Phase 2 is set to include a complete overhaul of the over-stage machinery and controls equipment to create a unified system running on our powerful Navigator Automation Platform.
