The Situation
TAIT’s ambitious aim to set up a new global standard for live events

Back in the 2000s, TAIT was known for their jaw-dropping concert sets, touring stages and installations crafted for the biggest shows of the decade. Because customers kept coming to TAIT with bigger and bigger challenges, they set on creating a comprehensive automation platform that would help them implement virtually any creative idea, from live event performances to large-scale brand activations and motion picture production.

TAIT engaged ELEKS to co-develop this complex software-hardware solution and to supplement their knowledge of automation machinery, mechanics and physics. From the very first weeks of working together, TAIT felt that the team at ELEKS understood their challenges and knew how to deliver the platform.

The solution
A distributed automation platform that is fully integrated for all aspects of performances
ELEKS has been key in our entire software technology platform; from architecture, design to development, to test, to maintenance, and they continued work on the software platform.
Eric Grossman,
Chief Business Officer, TAIT

Led by their clear vision, we helped TAIT to develop and bring to fruition the TAIT Navigator — a product line of hardware and software control systems that can manage thousands of independent machinery elements of any show, combined as a single coherent system.

Meeting all the functional, security and safety targets was a demanding task, but our engineers seamlessly delivered the platform on time. We co-developed the hardware components and delivered the motion control software of the Navigator.

The current version of TAIT Navigator provides complete flexibility when it comes to design and configuration of performances, from the simplest small theatre setup to an entire theme park of machinery. It supports full entertainment automation including machinery, lighting, audio, pyro, special effects, fountains and more.

The Results
With Navigator, TAIT earns global leadership in designing, constructing and delivering exceptional live event solutions
The development of the TAIT Navigator platform led us to be leading in the industry, we have the technology platform that nobody else has, it is our competitive advantage and it is key to our business, it is driving our business to grow and to reach into different areas.
