More Robe 350 LEDBeam’s added to stock!

Stage Lighting Services have added even more Robe 350 LEDBeam to their ever-expanding stock, and they’re available to hire for your next event!

Bigger, bolder, brighter! Building on the highly successful Robe LEDBeam 150 the big brother Robe LEDBeam 350 has arrived, delivering more punch and presence to create even more fast sweeping beams and gorgeous washes.

Maintaining the spectacular 3.8° to 60° zoom range and Robe’s innovative lens coating technology, which keeps lenses clearer and scratch-free. We have added more advanced technology. CPulse™, Robe’s highly respected Pulse Width Modulation control system, removes any on-screen camera flicker, making Robe LEDBeam 350’s eminently suitable for work with the most advanced HD and UHD cameras.

All features, including fast movement, colour mixing, zoom and control from its smaller sister can be maintained via a compatibility mode, meaning seamlessly use both models together with identical behaviour on the same rig. The 12 x 40W RGBW high power multichips provide plenty of output or CMY colour mixing control.

DataSwatch™ contains 66 premixed colours and tones, including whites, for fast, reliable colour selection, while this system takes care of imperceptible fades to black.

Being exceptionally quiet, due to the advanced cooling system and new super smooth zoom stepper motors, tungsten lamp emulation for lamps 2500W, and a variable CTO from 2.700K to 8.000K, the fixture is ideal for theatrical use.

The City of the Unexpected 2016

Stage Lighting Services Ltd Cardiff were recently contracted by National Theatre Wales. We provided specialist staging solutions and lighting for The City of the Unexpected.

Our Production Management team have been able to work closely with the client. From producing CAD drawings to installing the staging structures using our Steeldeck Staging. Our Production Manager for this project was able to oversee the process from start to finish.

The City of the Unexpected 2016 had stages located in various sites across Cardiff, including a stage to fill the fountain at City Hall. 

We were also contracted to supply the lighting for the performance outside City Hall. This included the supply of Robe Moving Heads; including our new Robe Spikies. We also supplied power distribution, production electricians, lighting technicians, communications and followspots.

New Robe Spikie Washbeams have arrived

The Robe Spikie LED WashBeam is a small, super fast LED WashBeam, which utilises a single 60W RGBW light source with a specially designed 110mm wide front lens producing a solid beam. The fixture quickly zooms from a soft wide 28° wash to a tight sharp-edged 4° beam or one of two new stunning air effects.

The new Robe Spikie LED WashBeam innovative Flower Effect creates sharp multicoloured spikes of light, rotating in both directions at variable speed. Additionally, a unique Beam Effect Engine transforms the output into a dynamic ray of three narrow beams, creating another new visual effect to the show.

The Continuous rotation of pan and tilt gives new dynamic elements across the stage.

The super strong light-output can be maximised by using ROBE‘s unique HotSpot Control system together with the linear iris to create very powerful beam effects. An innovative patented cooling system ensures the best lamp operating temperatures and allows DMX controlled noise reduction. Users have complete control of all features of this fixture, therefore making it ideal for environments where noise levels are critical and light output requirements are high.
