UK - Robert Juliat has emerged from an “extremely successful” PLASA 2019 with its exclusive UK distributor, Ambersphere Solutions, where it continued to celebrate its Centenary Year with new products.
The French manufacturer presented the Maestro server for SpotMe, developed in collaboration with tracking specialists, zactrack, extends the capabilities of RJ’s award-winning SpotMe, the bespoke 3D position-tracking system for followspots, by enabling it to operate with any DMX lighting control console. SpotMe has functioned with the PosiStageNet open protocol which is run by only a limited number of consoles, but with the Maestro extension, a designer can take control from any DMX console. The lighting console, even the simplest DMX model, retains the pan and tilt control and gets, in return, additional DMX channels to modulate the tracking parameters calculated and managed by the Maestro server.
Meanwhile, the Dalis Access 863 is a 150W LED four-colour cyclorama light with all the functionality and quality of the original at a low price point to make Dalis technology accessible to those on a smaller budget. Featuring a four-colour mixing system (red, green, royal blue and warm white 2200K) Dalis Access 863 delivers powerful, smooth coverage and a variety of pastel and saturated colours. Its body shape and location of controls and connectors underneath the unit makes Dalis Access 863 equally perfect for cyclorama or footlight applications.
Also presented was Dalis 864 Footlight, a 150W four-colour version of the original Dalis 862 tuneable white footlight, is available in standard 1m, or shorter 50cm (75W) length. Dalis 864 Footlight incorporates its patented micro-reflectors in a double row, each of which can be independently controlled for a choice of long or short throw capabilities for the creation of perfect, colourful upstage or downstage lighting. Discreet ‘mark’ LEDs, each of which are independently controlled, can be used as position markers or cues lights for performers, or as safety indicators to mark the edge of the stage.
Robert Juliat also sponsored the Award for Opera at the Knight of Illumination Awards held at London’s Eventim Apollo Hammersmith on 15 September. The company has congratulated Linford Hudson, the recipient of the Enrico Caironi Lifetime Recognition Award, and has thanked him for “making an artform out of the profession and fixtures that are so close to the company’s heart.”
