Pro Shop LED Tri-Colour PAR 64’s speed to New Zealand

Posted on Friday, November 27th, 2009

Wellington-based Metro Productions has supplied the entertainment and events industry for over seventeen years, and consequently they are well versed in the staging of productions, events and functions in venues throughout New Zealand.

Last June, Metro’s managing director Jeff Hewitt purchased twenty-six Pro Shop LED Tri-Colour PAR 64 units but they became so popular he soon found that he couldn’t keep them on the rental shelf! As a result a further fifty-eight Tri-Colour PAR 64’s have been purchased.

“There is a huge amount of LED product in the market place,” remarked Jeff. “Like a lot of other companies we’ve been hanging out for a decent LED PAR and finally we’ve found a unit that we feel confident enough to replace a conventional PAR 64. We purchased the units unseen based on the product information and Mark McInnes from Show Technology’s recommendation, knowing the sorts of applications we would be using the units for.

”The brightness and colours have blown us away. We have used the units on everything from up-lights for corporate functions, fashion shows, concerts and television productions. The minimal power consumption and negligible heat out-put, make these units safe to use at close proximity to guests (when used as up-lights) and less power is kinder on the environment and the clients electricity bill.”

Jeff reports that when he ordered his second batch of Tri-Colour PAR 64 units he needed them asap and Show Technology exceeded his expectations with swift delivery. The last order was dispatched from Show Technology’s Sydney warehouse on a Friday and arrived in Wellington the following Monday morning.

”And when you purchase multiple units you’re bound to get a few problems however Show Technology’s after sales service is top class and issues have been sorted quickly without any fuss,” added Jeff.
