Bowling specialist QubicaAMF Worldwide has launched new pin lighting technology called CenterPunch Deck Lighting.
According to Qubica, CenterPunch is the only pin deck lighting system controlled through a bowling management system, and fully integrated with the Conqueror Pro centre management system. In addition, when combined with the BES X Bowler Entertainment System, CenterPunch is the only deck lighting system that responds to on-lane events such as strikes, spares and other in-game incidents.
“The multi-colour pin deck light alternatives on the market today tend to be one dimensional, providing flashy lighting effects and little else. CenterPunch takes pin illumination to the next level by introducing intelligent control through the Conqueror Pro center management system, along with bowler driven effects, which combine to enhance the guest experience and bowler engagement,” claimed Neil Pennington, director of product management for Performance Equipment, QubicaAMF Worldwide. “Centres can quickly build a light show library, easily schedule shows across the centere or use different shows on different lanes for different customer groups—like birthday parties or leagues. The possibilities are endless.”
Integration with Conqueror Pro gives centres the possibility to design and deliver unique light shows to across the centre or cater to diverse customer segments by lane. These can be scheduled in advance through Conqueror Pro or quickly for special promotions or events. In addition, Conqueror Pro integration allows centres to offer a Virtual Concierge, guiding bowlers to their lane at check-in or guiding leagues through practice. Integration with the BES X Bowler Entertainment System enables the lighting effects to respond to strikes, spares, gutter balls and more, driving engagement among bowlers.
