On debut - the Forte Fresnel PC and iForte LTX
UK - Robe looks forward to the buzz and energy of another PLASA expo at Olympia where it will be launching three new products and debuting a new live performance concept on stands A70 & C28. Designed to create drama, excitement and anticipation, visitors will be drawn to the booths by Robe putting a real live production at the heart of the event.
Robe’s partner companies Anolis and Artistic Licence will be on adjacent stands and this area of the show floor will be a lively and interactive ‘takeover’ space where all are welcome to enjoy the tech, innovation and drama.
Products being launched at the show include:
iForte LTX WB is an ultimate long throw LED wash beam for all environments, developed for stadium shows, concerts and all events and spectaculars where serious intensity is needed over massive distances. The iForte LTX WB can create an imposing visual statement with its beautiful solid beam and 245mm front lens.
Robe’s Forte Fresnel and PC washes also utilise the brand’s revolutionary Transferable Engine technology and this maintains super bright light quality over time, combined with an innovation-packed high-output wash luminaire.
Both products deliver powerful, intense washes without losing any theatrical subtlety or control, featuring either the classically soft Fresnel beam or the slightly more defined PC beam, they are great for any performance space and application.
The new Robe TE 1,000W XP (Xtra Performance) White 6,700 K LED Transferable Engine generates 90.200 lumens. Both models output over 41,000 lumens from the front of the fixture, offering power and exceptional beam quality.
The Forte Fresnel has unsurpassed levels of beam control, including medium and light frosts; RotaScrim a graduated filter system with position control, +/- 180° rotation and edge colour correction; and the rapid 4Door internal barndoor system for accurate individual blade control and +/- 90° module rotation.
The Power of Imagination is the first show in a trilogy of new Robe expo productions, aptly named to evoke a sense of the unexpected.
It will comprise three talented performers and a story devised by Robe’s creative team to excite and enthral visitors with a mind-boggling lightshow utilising all Robe’s newest technologies. This will be running five times a day for the first two show days and four on the final day.
The lightshow also highlights more of Robe’s moving light and LED technologies including iPaintes, iEsprites, T1 Profile FSs, T11 Profiles, PCs and Fresnels, LEDBeam 350s, Tetra2s and TetraXs, Spikie+s, iBeam350s, iSpiiders, the ingenious Footsie and the ever-popular RoboSpot remote follow system.
As always with Robe, there will be one or two surprise products on the stand - seen for the first time at PLASA 2023.
Robe’s architectural and LED lighting brand Anolis has its own space on Stand C28 and Anolis will highlight its new Calumma, Ambiane and Eminere product ranges.
Calumma M & S fixtures are now available with asymmetric optics specifically designed for street, road, and pathway use, where unwanted glare reduction and efficiency are paramount. The unit is engineered for pole mounted applications that optimise pole spacings and enhance sustainability.
The Ambiane SP range has been expanded with an adjustable version of the downlight and a new pendant version which offer the same key features - homogenous light output, power balancing, 18-bit dimming and TV friendly green +/- control. Currently these are available in Pure White, Tuneable White, RGBW and Tungsten Dim formats.
The Ambiane SP16 pendant remote - currently the smallest of the range - will also be on the stand demo - offering an efficient, powerful, and high-quality solution for lower ceiling applications.
Part of the Robe group, Artistic Licence will be on Stand C28 showing a selection of its omnipresent lighting control technology products popular across the entertainment industry and a favourite for systems integrators and installers.
