South African based technical equipment supplier, Stage Effects, has acquired 24 Robin 600+ LEDWash fixtures from DWR Distribution.
Theo Papenfus, the owner of Stage Effects, explains that when he was awarded contracts for two long-running events, it made more sense to purchase new gear than to hire in additional equipment.
“We were hunting for a mid-range fixture and thought that the Robin 600+ would be a good investment,” he said. “When shopping around, we found that cross rentals would be much easier if we went for the LEDWash 600 or the 600+. International riders are very demanding when it comes to quantities, and lighting designers regularly specify the medium-range washes.”
Stage Effects was established in 2001 and specialise in lighting, structures and AV. The company is known in the industry for delivering outstanding service as they focus on broadcast, live events and corporate functions from small indoor shows to large festival stages. The new fixtures are a great addition to their artillery. “The Robin 600+ is small, compact, powerful and lightweight saving on truck space due to four units fitting into one small flight case,” he added.
The super-slim Robin 600+ LEDWash features 37x 15 Watt RGBW multichip LEDs with colour output ranging from gentle pastels to the richest saturation. Arranged in three concentric rings, these LEDs offer unique possibilities for creating stunning colour and pattern audience blinding effects as well as for providing comprehensive and perfectly even wash coverage. This system sets the LEDWash 600+ ahead of any other LED wash light products, making it a truly‚ “multi-purpose” unit, also equipped with an extremely versatile 8–63 degree motorised zoom, powerful, fast strobing and pre-programmed pulse strobe effects.
“We are super excited about our purchase, especially since it has been in the pipeline for so long!” Papenfus concludes.
