USA - Wilmington, Delaware and Las Vegas, Nevada based lighting rental and dry hire specialist Main Light has invested in more Robe BMFL FollowSpot LT fixtures and motion cameras to boost its inventory of available RoboSpot remote follow spotting systems.
Larger quantities of all the RoboSpot elements are needed to keep pace with increasing demand, explained general manager Randy Mullican.
The company first invested in this technology shortly after the RoboSpot launch in 2017. Since then, Robe has developed and refined the system, most recently with the introduction of the BMFL FollowSpot LT, a powerful solution for larger venues and covering greater throw distances. It has also increased the number of its moving light ranges that can be controlled via the RoboSpot BaseStations.
RoboSpots have been a popular rental item for Main Light from the start, and everything indicates a continuation of this trend, as shows, concerts and live events are re-starting across North America. “We are seeing RoboSpot systems appear increasingly on lighting specs and riders across all sectors,” stated Randy.
Main Light’s new BMFL FollowSpot LTs have already been busy on an assortment of projects.
Randy notes that the system is particularly easy to set up and use, especially with the integral camera, and anyone with some experience of operating a classic follow spot can quickly and easily become a competent RoboSpot operator.
He underlines the safety aspects of using remote follow spotting systems! No longer needing to have people up in the roof and the trusses, plus the greater creative freedom that the remote follow spotting system concept gives to lighting directors and designers, who can now choose lights dotted all over the rig to be controlled via RoboSpot.
In addition to this, Main Light Robe purchased Robe’s Esprite profiles and the high-powered Fortes for their newly opened Las Vegas office and warehouse, Main Light West.
This enables Main Light customers to have comprehensive nationwide coverage for their lighting requirements.
