Commercial Projects

Life Cinemas

Nadi, Fiji
Lautoka, Fiji
Suva, Fiji

Liquid Automation has played a big part in 3 new Life Cinema complexes in Fiji – Nadi, Lautoka and Suva.

From the design, supply, installation and programming of lighting systems, background audio, digital signage displays and network infrastructure, Liquid has provided all the technical needs required for the operation of these complexes.



Liquid Automation’s seamless integration with the Cinema control system, provides fully automated lighting control for the complex.

Lutron Lighting’s bulletproof control system provides fully automated and creative Day & Night front of house scenes, and in-cinema House Up, House Down, Trailers, and Intermission lighting cues.

Lutron also automates Cleaning and Fire Alarm Lighting scenes that bring all lights up, when secured cleaning key-switches are activated or fire alarms are triggered.

Digital Signage

BrightSign is a simple to use digital signage distribution system. With a BrightSign player mounted behind each display, and software loaded on any PC on the network, management can easily push movie posters, banners or trailer videos out to any display.


  • A PFSense Router/Firewall acts as the main link out to the internet for all systems, and facilitates routing for remote support.
  • The WIFI in the complex uses the Ruckus Wireless System.
