An Ionoco stage-control system is being used for ITV’s new daytime quiz show Ejector Seat.

It delivers all the game-play information, data feeds, sound effects and lighting controls, and provides information for the synchronisation of sound and lighting effects.

Ionoco chief executive Simon Ingram said: “Ejector Seat is a great idea, but it needs great technology to make it work.

“Chairs have to move in the right direction at the right moment, and be perfectly synchronised with sound and lighting effects.”
