Litecom launches rigging departmentThe JTE truss has been on many TV shows in Denmark including X Factor
Denmark - Kastrup, Copenhagen-based Litecom A/S has recently invested in James Thomas 52-inch SuperTruss - custom-sprayed in black - from Danish distributor, Light Partner. The truss forms the base inventory initiating the company's newly-launched rigging department.

Litecom took delivery of Supertruss amounting to 265m in length - more than two and a half football pitches - and it has been in constant use since. The truss has been on many major televised shows in Denmark including X Factor, and the Zulu Awards.

Litecom MD, Kristian Dreier, comments, "We wanted to start up our own rigging department to make everything easier, more flexible and to be able to rig our own projects, with black truss, instead of the normal aluminium look we could rent."

"No one in the television industry likes to look at aluminium trusses, so we've always had to cover them with black drapes. It takes a long time and the result was never perfect. It is fantastic not to have to drape the truss and it just looks cool."

Litecom's designer, Kasper Langeadds, "The James Thomas Truss is very easy to build so all the staff here definitely love it. Importantly though, it looks fantastic and our clients love the whole idea of having a black roof. I really can't think of one television show where I wouldn't use black truss."
