If you enjoyed the fireworks and how they synched up with the music during Friday’s Opening Ceremony in London, you have an American company to thank for it.
Based in Pennsylvania, FireOne, the developer of the world’s most advanced digital firing system and integrated fireworks-to-music choreography system, is proud to have been a big part of the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.
“We are honored to be a part of the Olympic Games again this year,” said Dan Barker, president of FireOne, a U.S.-based company. “Our employees work tirelessly to ensure that the world’s most visible events and celebrations are executed safely and seamlessly. Seeing their efforts broadcast across the globe, during the most exciting sporting event of the year, is thrilling to say the least.”
FireOne has been the pioneer of the integration of software and hardware used in the world’s most spectacular fireworks shows since its inception over two decades ago. Since then, FireOne’s technologies have been deployed to some of the world’s biggest events and celebrations. These include past Olympic Games, Super Bowls, Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve celebrations, nightly theme park celebrations worldwide, and spectacular grand openings in cities including Las Vegas and Dubai.
FireOne clients include leading fireworks companies in the United States and prominent international clients from Australia, Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, Russia, Japan, and many other countries.
This opening ceremony is another feather in the cap for FireOne.
Phil Grucci, creative director and executive vice president of Fireworks by Grucci, one of the world’s most prominent fireworks companies, and a long-time FireOne customer, said FireOne’s technologies provide “great flexibility” and “unrivaled accuracy.” “FireOne is the system we deploy for our most demanding applications, because it’s the system we place our full confidence in to deliver every time,” Grucci said. Grucci produced the largest fireworks display in the world for the grand opening of the Palm Jumierah in Dubai with the precision, flexibility and confidence in the FireOne system.
FireOne’s software and hardware are the industry leader in spectacular fireworks displays at the Olympics and thousands of other high-profile events. The performance of its system has been exceptional due to state-of-the-art technology and the dedicated and innovative FireOne team.
The display the world witnessed on Friday was impressive to say the least, and with FireOne’s technology and experience, they pulled it off without a hitch and set the early tone for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
