UK - Robe is delighted to be back in London at Olympia for the 2017 PLASA exhibition – which sees the event and the organisation celebrating 40 years at the forefront of the vibrancy and innovation of the entertainment technology industry.
Robe’s focus will be on its just launched MegaPointe all new multi-purpose moving light - globally launched just 10 days ahead of PLASA - which is its first international trade show.
Another show-stopping lighting design can be enjoyed by all visitors on Stand D40 which will put the drama and excitement of theatricality and live performance at its core. Those blown away by the stunning lightshow featuring on the MegaPointe launch video will be able to see it up-close on the stand.
Robe is once again a platinum sponsor of PLASA in recognition of the great energy and buzz that has always been at the heart of the show, which is a great networking and social occasion as well as a key opportunity to showcase new technicians to leading professionals and companies as well as new, emerging and aspiring members of the performance lighting and visuals community.
Utilising an exclusive 470W short-arc lightsource, Robe’s diligently crafted MegaPointe optics produce “phenomenally bright” parallel beams, “incredible spot gobo projections”, together with super-quick movement, smooth CMY colour mixing and a multitude of effects available for splitting and shaping the light in Spot, Beam or Wash modes.
The zoom ranges from 1.8 to 21 degrees in Beam mode – tight, powerful and punchy, and goes from 3 to 42 degrees in Spot mode with crystal clear high-clarity output through a 150mm diameter front lens, with a stunning total lumen output of 20.375 and an impressive CRI of over 80.
Inventive, different in-air projections can be created using the new Effects Engine, pre-loaded with 12 dynamic beam and flower effects, and can be further finessed using the beam shaper which can emulate framing shutter effects and create rectangular shapes as well as being rotatable and indexable.
Utilising the ‘light and medium’ frost filters with any combination of colours from the CMY mixing system produces a beautiful, smooth, even wash coverage.
There is a static 14-slot plus open gobo wheel fitted with glass gobos for precision surface projections and exciting in-air impressions, and a second wheel contains 9 rotating, indexable and replaceable gobos.
These can be combined with a variable speed, bi-directional animation wheel which can be used in conjunction with any of the gobos or on its own to enhance or produce exceptionally subtle and detailed effects and projections.
Also new and featured on the stand are a number of other fixtures and a new raft of dynamic follow spotting innovations designed to harness the power and flexibility of Robe’s BMFLs, DL Series fixtures and MegaPointes.
