PLASA London 2013: Robert Juliat debuts prototypes
Posted on Wednesday, September 25th, 2013
Robert Juliat, French manufacturer of tungsten, discharge and LED lighting fixtures and followspots, will be exhibiting at PLASA 2013 on stand T76 in the Ambersphere Solutions area.
“We are pleased to be part of the exciting changes as PLASA moves to its new venue at London ExCel,” says Robert Juliat MD, François Juliat. “This will be the first exhibition for us with our new local partner, Ambersphere Solutions, which became our exclusive distributor for the UK this summer, and we are looking forward to an invigorating show.”
Robert Juliat will be introducing a new motorized yoke as an accessory for its range of Fresnel lanterns. “We have introduced the motorized yoke in response to the huge number of requests we receive from our customers in the theatre world,” says sales director, Claus Spreyer. “This option will be of great assistance to operas, theatres and all venues requiring automated fixtures.”
The first prototype motorized yokes will be on the stand at PLASA and will roll out across the RJ Fresnel range in the coming months.
Robert Juliat will be showing the diversity of its product range with a selection of LED fixtures and by dedicating a section of the stand to tungsten light sources. Robert Juliat is a supporter of the ALD’s Save Tungsten Campaign (www.ald.org.uk/savetungsten), a view it shares with Ambersphere. “Tungsten is a vital light source for us,” says Juliat. “It is still a living, valid technology and a major part of our product range, even though we are expanding into LED. We strongly view LED as an addition, not a substitution, in the lighting designers’ palette.”
Established for over 90 years, Robert Juliat is proud to say that all its products are ‘Fabriqué en France’, guaranteeing the highest standards and full quality control over every aspect of production.
Robert Juliat is also a sponsor of the Knight of Illumination Awards which, organised jointly by the STLD, ALD, Ambersphere Solutions and Clay Paky, provides public recognition of outstanding achievements by lighting designers and video content designers in the UK. The Award ceremony will take place on Sunday 6 September at the London ExCel Platinum Suite.
