Adelaide Convention Centre Chooses Robe Gear

PLSN Staff • International News • March 11, 2009

ADELAIDE, Australia — The Adelaide Convention Centre (ACC) has recently invested in 90 Robe 575E AT Series moving lights for its facility, which includes 14 meetings rooms, 11 halls, an outdoor performance space and a total of close to 10,500 square meters of pillar-free floor space for conferences, exhibitions and special events. "We needed large numbers of both profile and wash fixtures for business and logistical reasons,” said Jamie Masefield, technical manager, who added that ease of use, features, minimal weight, sufficient output and value for the money invested all factored into giving Robe’s 575E AT range of products the nod.

Another plus, Masefield said, was support. The Robe gear — including 48 Robe ColorWash 575E AT and 32 Robe ColorSpot 575E AT fixtures — was made available through Robe’s Australian distributor ULA, authorized Robe dealer George Psorakis and Osmond Electronics.

“Working together with Osmond Electronics and ULA's Sales Manager Blair Terrace was a very pleasant and efficient experience,” Masefield said.

Robe’s 575 series is suitable for theatres, TV studios, medium sized stage applications and any application requiring a "workhorse" 575 lamp. The ColorWash features full CMY, variable CTO, a static color-wheel with five replaceable colors, a dimmer/shutter and rotatable beam shaper, which is indexable through 360° with continuous rotation.

Although the standard zoom angle has a range of 12-34°, the Adelaide Convention Centre chose to order an optional wide lens, offering a 24 – 60° beam angle. The ColorSpot 575 AT also includes a variety of effects, which should help ACC adapt its newly-purchased gear to the needs of those staging events at the ACC.
