France - Robe’s new flagship, high powered, TE (Transferable Engine) LED luminaire – the Forte – has made landfall in France where the new units have been delivered from the Czech Republic via Robe France to rental and technical production specialist Concept Audiovisuel.
The 40,000 lumen fixture features Robe’s new 1000W white LED light engine, complete with independent zone control for even higher output when zoomed in. The engine is fully and easily replaceable – extending the lifespan of the fixture.
Concept Audiovisuel is based in Niort, western France, and was founded in 1998 by Pierig Burgin and Hughes Mongrand as a design rental and installation company.
The usually busy schedule sees the delivery of lighting, audio, staging and rigging solutions for a wide range of rental and installation projects covering concert touring, live events, and festival sectors. Concept Audiovisuel is a technical partner for some of France’s most popular festivals including Francofolies, Hellfest, Cognac Blues Passions, Au Fil du Son, Les Vieilles Charrues and many more.
Apart from enjoying being ‘first’ and keeping ahead of the technology trends, Pierig explains that they wanted the Fortes – part of the first full production batch to leave the Robe factory – to replace older workhorse moving light fixtures. These Fortes are the first of a larger order.
“This fixture with its immense power and transferable LED module plus other features like the 5 - 50 degree zoom, framing shutters and multiple effects plus other parameters like C-pulse flicker free operation (for HD and UHD cameras) is exactly what we were looking for,” says Pierig.
