Robe to launch seven products at PLASA 2012
Posted on Tuesday, August 21st, 2012
Robe celebrates its tenth birthday and 10years of ‘Working With Winners’ at PLASA 2012, referring to its international distribution team, most of whom have been with the company since its first PLASA in 2002.
The company was established in 1994, starting with humble beginnings in a small garage, and was launched as the ‘Robe’ brand in 2002. The company is still independently owned and run by the original partners who take active roles in its day-to-day running.
Now with one of the most high profile booths of the show, and fresh from the Czech House Olympic Pavilion at the Business Design Centre – lit with Robe fixtures – awarded ‘gold medal’ status as one of the best social hubs of the Summer Games, Robe launches seven new products on Booth 1 F47
On debut are: The Robin DLS Profile, Robin MMX WashBeam , Robin 800 LEDWash, Robin Actor 3, Robin Actor 6, Robin Actor 12, Robin 100 LED Beam – DL and SW version.
All are based on the ‘smaller, brighter, lighter ‘ and more environmentally sustainable design concept at the core of Robe’s product development strategy, says the company.
The DL range is designed for theatrical and television lighting. It is the result of extensive R’n’D by Robe using the latest technologies to perfect the precise ‘white light’ requirements of these specialist areas.
The latest DL range product from Robe uses the high power RGBW LED module and adds a smooth, fast framing shutter system in the optical path of the already proven DLX Spot format. Each of the four shutter blades can be individually controlled, positioned and angled and the whole module can be rotated.
The Robin MMX WashBeam offers multiple features in one fixture. The Philips Platinum 35 lightsource combined with the MMX optical system provides “an output exceeding most traditional 1200W products”.
The Robin 800 LEDWash is billed as The world’s first LED wash light with beam shaping and a truly multi-purpose luminaire designed for all professional applications – concert touring, rental and staging, theatre, TV studios and productions, conferences, presentations plus live events and installations.
Robe’s Actor range of wash luminaires bring the flexibility of the award-winning LEDWash series to fixed position applications. Both 300, 600 and 1200 models deliver a small, easy-to-control static head that can be manually locked into position.
Robin LEDBeam 100 DL & SW add more dynamics to the LEDBeam range. The LEDBeam 100 utilises 12 15W LEDs to provide an extra punchy 7-degree beam – or with the addition of a clip-on 25 or 40 degree frost filter – a smooth wash.
