Robe ROBIN DLX Spot Wins SIEL Award
Posted on Thursday, February 9th, 2012
Robe’s new ROBIN DLX Spot LED moving light has won an Award for Technical Innovation at the 2012 SIEL trade exhibition in Paris — France’s international expo for the professional lighting, sound, video, and entertainment technology industry.
The DLX Spot was entered into the Lighting category by Robe’s French distributor, Paris-based Axente.
The Awards were judged by an independent panel of industry experts, including lighting designers, technical and creative directors, and representatives from top rental companies — who closely examined each nominated product, before conferring and making their final decisions.
Over 60 products entered, and were narrowed to 24 finalists. These were examined by the judges, who selected nine winners: five in audio and four in lighting.
The Robin DLX was selected for its intensity, color mixing capabilities, homogenized light source, and power saving capabilities — all qualities that impressed the judges. These qualities also provide for multiple applications including rental and staging, studios, and installations, the company says.
The Robin DLX Spot uses a new and unique RGBW LED light source and offers a color output brighter than a 575W discharge unit, but with the very eco-friendly average power consumption of only 250W, the company says. The homogenization means that the LED point sources are not visible, and the unit offers a smooth, high quality, flat field of light, similar to a tungsten source, the company adds.
After the awards were announced, visitor levels to the Axente stand were boosted, reports Robe key account manager for Europe, Ingo Dombrowski. He further comments, “It was a very big honor to win this award. We think the DLX and other Robin series products in general have a great future. Robe as a manufacturer is really driving LED technology forward, with new ideas constantly evolving, a real commitment to producing greener products, and thinking intelligently about what designers and specifiers want, and the features and functionality they need.”
