Developing custom motion control software and hardware solutions for TAIT

7 continents hosted performances powered by Navigator 
TAIT was awarded a Guinness World Records for the performance powered by Navigator
In a nutshell

TAIT came to ELEKS for support with engineering a custom entertainment automation platform that would pull together all the different parts of its entertainment automation business, including hardware and software to manage and monitor machinery, lighting, audio, pyro, SFX, fountains, and more.

ELEKS architected a complete automation solution, TAIT Navigator, that could help TAIT manage thousands of independent machinery elements within a single system, while meeting the business’ functional, security, and safety requirements.

Global leadership
TAIT is a best-in-class live events solution provider, powering live experiences globally, including spectacular events such as the world’s top performers and the Olympic Games.
Large-scale automation

For its live events, TAIT must manage and monitor many different components simultaneously. As they continued to take on projects of larger scales, they knew they needed access to a comprehensive automation platform that encompassed hardware and software solutions for automating all of the elements that go into world-class live entertainment.

Co-engineering partnership

TAIT initially tested the waters with ELEKS in 2002, requesting our support with several smaller technical projects. When those projects went off without a hitch, TAIT felt confident enough to contract with ELEKS to co-engineer their most ambitious project yet: The creation of TAIT Navigator, a comprehensive platform for live events management.

While TAIT had its own team of engineers and a clear vision for the project, they relied on us to bring in additional subject-matter expertise and provide technical guidance on all of the challenges they faced in bringing the solution to life. Working in a collaborative partnership, ELEKS was able to provide the strategic insights and competencies that TAIT needed to flawlessly execute on TAIT’s vision for the platform.


ELEKS supported TAIT in launching the TAIT Navigator, a fully scalable entertainment automation platform that enables TAIT to integrate and automate all of the various components of a live event activation, including lighting, sound, machinery, pyro, SFX, and other elements. The platform not only enables flawless execution from a performance standpoint; it also ensures the safety of the events team and audience by preventing human error in events logistics.

TAIT Navigator features an intuitive interface, which enables operators to control lights, sound, video, and motion through a single user interface. The Navigator’s software and hardware components are optimized to control any system or device, so that events teams can flawlessly manage dynamic live events experiences, ranging in scale from a small theater to an entire theme park.

ELEKS experts also helped TAIT to explore the feasibility of collecting and processing data from on-site Navigator installations. The developed proof of concept shows real-time data analytics as well as makes valuable conclusions out of big data chunks, such as providing the live status of equipment and giving a possibility to get a heads-up about the need for equipment maintenance or replacement.

TAIT Navigator is a proven solution for live events, and is currently in operation at hundreds of venues across the world. The solution offers tight synchonization between audio, video, lighting, and scenic elements, and has powered everything from touring shows to theme parks to 3D performer flying stunts.

Navigator offers comprehensive integration between elements via a distributed system, which both ensures safety for performers, crew, and audience members, and enables TAIT to execute increasingly complex live events. The platform also makes it possible to scale the same event to fit each venue, dynamically changing each variable based on the venue’s requirements and regulations.

Navigator has made it possible for TAIT to gain a competitive edge over other live events providers, with capabilities that are unmatched within the industry.
