USA - TMELED – the equipment rental division of creative event and production specialist Time Matters Entertainment (TME) – has made a significant investment in over 50 Robe moving light fixtures. Based in Plano, north Texas and headed by Randy Cline, TMELED purchased the fixtures from Robe North America, bringing Robe’s Tarrantula LED wash beams, MegaPointes, DL4F Washes, DL7S Profiles, LEDBeam150s and BMFL Blades, together with a RoboSpot remote follow spotting system and LightMaster kits which convert BMFL range fixtures into manually operated follow spots.
Cline’s lifelong friends and production industry colleagues Eric Wade from Crossfade Design and Jim Waits from Communilux were instrumental in him making the decision to go with Robe, which was based on the “quality, popularity and future” of the products and “the team behind the brand”.
Time Matters Entertainment supplies equipment to a wide variety of shows, from corporate and industrial events and awards show to concerts, festivals and live music shows, and Cline has always believed in offering the best and most flexible options to all its clients.
He chose the Tarrantulas and DL7S Profiles for their features and functionality. The DL7S Profile was also picked for its quietness – ideal for key lighting speakers and presenters as well as for theatrical shows; and the Tarrantula for its sheer power and punch as one of the brightest LED wash beam luminaires on the market.
TME is dedicated to providing the absolute best in remote automated spotlight packages and tracking services, hence getting the RoboSpot system onboard, and they will continue to invest in the available technologies coming to this specialist market.
A large Robe rig is now installed in the company’s new showroom which has been designed and programmed to show off the many different features of the lights to clients – both those coming to TME for imaginative full technical production solutions and those wanting to dry rent equipment from TMELED.
TMELED’s DL7S Profiles and LEDBeam 150s were recently used on a glamourous Great Gatsby New Year’s Eve party staged in the plush lobby at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, featuring the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra which was lit by Eric Wade. Challenged for power and lighting positions in and around the lobby, powerful LED light sources were the only way to go, so Eric selected Robe LEDBeam 150s and DL7S Profiles as the primary fixtures.
Other recent shows have included an annual appreciation gala dinner and show for East West Ministries’ Houston supporters starring contemporary Christian musician, singer and songwriter Phil Wickham, lit by Brandon Keebler; and the Arab American Cultural Society’s second Annual Texas Arab festival. This was staged on a ranch just east of Dallas, attended by over 5000 people and lit by Cline himself.
