UK - Rental facility Dry Hire Lighting, based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, has invested in over 50 of Robe’s popular MegaPointe moving lights which will be added to their already substantial stock of the Czech brand.
This is due to ‘general demand’ states Dry Hire Lighting’s Rob Merrilees explaining the reason for this latest purchase, adding that the MegaPointe has fast become a ‘fixture of the moment’ since its launch in September 2017.
Dry Hire Lighting has been consistently purchasing Robe luminaires since the company was founded in 2011 with the goal of making all major brands available for cross rental and guaranteed to be meticulously maintained and prepped, as well as supplied in unbranded flightcases.
The company is run by Rob who is highly respected in the entertainment technology and production world. With expansive knowledge and experience, he’s also known for his business savvy and trend spotting abilities.
They have one of the largest fleets of Robe fixtures available for hire in the UK including Pointes, LEDBeam 100s, LEDWash 600s, MegaPointes and the most recent arrival, some of the beautifully retro styled, LED source PATT 2017s.
Dry Hire Lighting’s first batch of MegaPointes is going straight out with the Chemical Brothers for the summer, for which the lighting equipment supplier is Blackburn-based design and rental house, Lite Alternative.
Lite Alternative has also invested in its own MegaPointes after the fixtures were spec’d onto the tour – a mix of festivals and own headline shows which runs until the autumn – by the band’s show and production designers, Marcus Lyle and Adam Smith.
