Universal invests in i-Pix Satellite Mk II
UK-based specialist LED manufacturer i-Pix launched the new Satellite Mk II LED 'brick' lightsource at the 2011 PLASA Light & Sound exhibition in September.
This was five years after the launch of the original Satellite, which was the then new company's debut product, and rapidly became a trend-setting massive best seller worldwide.
Universal Events purchased 24 of the original Satellite products when they came to the market in 2006. They have been in constant use - and are still going strong today, "They have been an absolutely essential element and a constant workhorse product in our hire inventory," confirms UEP's MD Steve Butcher, adding that the Satellites have also been rock-solid reliable throughout five years of full-on duty.
"When the Satellite Mk II version came onstream," continues Butcher, "We didn't think twice, and immediately placed the order", which was delivered via i-Pix distributor White Light.
The Satellite Mk II takes advantage of the advances in LED technology over the last five years. While it's still housed in the same compact package, Satellite Mk II offers an amazing four times the light output.
UEP's Satellite Mk IIs and BB4s went straight to work on a variety of projects including the recent launch of CoD MW3 (Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 3) at Old Billingsgate Market in London, where they provided all the lighting.
