Megavision extends Robe inventory
Posted on Monday, August 8th, 2016
Based in Perth, Western Australia, Megavision is focussed on offering clients in the event, hospitality, club, pub, production rental / staging sectors superlative service and premium equipment together with imaginative technical solutions. Founded in 2001 by Jeff Georgiou, Megavision’s first investment in Robe moving lights was four years ago.
Right from the get go Jeff has looked at the ‘bigger picture’ of his business model and how to make it successful and different, seeing the advantages of attributes like quality and service and keeping a keen ear-to-the-ground for what’s trending and in demand.
When it comes to moving lights, Jeff has purchased and experienced all the major brands over the years, so the first Robe experience grew out of his ongoing relationship with the ULA Group, Robe’s Australian distributor.
LEDWash 800s suited Megavision’s needs perfectly at the time in 2012. Utilizing the 15W LED chip, the LEDWash 800s offered excellent output, great colours and zoom and very efficient general coverage, making them ideal for multiple applications.
The next Robe products added to the inventory were MMX Spots, for which Jeff attended a shootout in Melbourne before making the decision.
“It was size and weight for me on the MMXs,” he explained. The unit was about 30% smaller than the rival product in the shoot-out and considerably lighter … facts which sealed the deal, adding 8 to the hire stock.
He also purchased LEDBeam 100s around this time, and when the Pointe was launched in 2013, he seized the opportunity of getting them into rental stock immediately.
The latest purchase is four BMFL Spots – the first in the region, and in response to demand on riders and technical specs as well as for sub-hires.
Jeff attended a BMFL demo hosted by ULA at the Perth Arena and saw first-hand how the beam can go from a tiny pin-spot to filling the entire wall, an amazing feat for one light. He comments on its compact size and weight for the comprehensive feature set.
Megavision aligns itself with a raft of other premium brands as well, including, RCF, QSC Audio, FBT and Labgruppen. On the video side they have Big Screen Video LED, Panasonic and NEC and a large stock of projections screens.
Recent high profile events include technical production for the Perth Wildcats, the Margaret River site on the Australian leg of the 2016 World Surf League Championships Tour – and the Mandurah Crab Fest which they have been providing all things technical for the last nine years.
