Vortek hoists and precision controls deliver cutting-edge technology to every performing arts venue regardless of size. With pre-engineered wireways and easy-to-use stage level controls, Daktronics provides a level of convenience never before seen in stage rigging.
A continuously applied load break protects every hoist's drum. Loft blocks with molded side guards precisely guide the lines and promote longer wire rope life. Controls have administrative access levels, standard emergency stop switch, full status monitoring and load profiling.
Design versatility saves installation time and construction costs, and they can reduce the needed building space and additional steel requirements that manual counterweight rigging systems need. Quick turnaround times between shows allows for more bookings in a facility.
Simple to Use
Intuitive touch screens and menus with up/down emergency stops. All of our controllers have adjustable ramped speeds, automated cueing, joystick and wired remote controllers. All of this can be easily operated from a seated position, giving your operators confidence and consistency.
Systems are self-contained, lightweight, adjustable and easily installed. You can utilize space in a facility with the typical underhung, vertical or inverted hoist options.
The Centro Cultural de Belém in Lisbon, Portugal, renovated its performing arts facility last year. "...Without any doubt, the Daktronics system is the safest system which I have ever seen," Technical Director Siamanto Ismaily said.

Advantages of Automated Rigging Vs. Counterweight Systems
Besides the obvious ease and simplicity in managing line sets, Daktronics automated stage rigging systems can decrease building space prerequisites. They reduce unnecessary heavy-duty support steel, grid space, wall space and other requirements to accommodate manual counterweight rigging systems.
