Robert Juliat launch Oz and Alice at PLASA
Posted on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017
The company’s latest followspot releases will be officially launched at the show: Oz and Alice are 600W LED models offering a cool white source for long and short-throw applications respectively. They are the first professional LED followspots able to deliver a high output comparable with that of 1200W discharge followspots, and offer the same high-quality functionality and characteristics as all Robert Juliat’s Compact followspots.
Oz and Alice’s compact dimensions and silent operation are coupled with the benefits of no heat, smooth electronic dimming – locally or remotely via DMX – and no lamp-change for less maintenance.
The significantly increased output of Oz and Alice take RJ’s LED followspot technology a step further, extending its application into larger venues and full size theatres, where Oz is the perfect front-of-house spot for LED applications and Alice’s compact dimensions and powerful throw make it the ideal truss spot.
SpotMe, Robert Juliat’s new advanced, real-time, 3D tracking system for followspots, will be demonstrated in the UK for the first time. Very easy to understand, simple to install and use, and extremely cost-effective, SpotMe turns Robert Juliat followspots into an interactive solution that gives the position of performers on stage without the need for emitters and/or cameras.
The followspot is equipped with sensors which send signals to the server and communicates all the positions and beam size parameters to the lighting console through PSN and DMX protocols. The parameters can then be used by the console to control any automated or static lights. Any moving light can therefore also become a followspot at any time during a show. Designed to be accessible to everyone and all budgets, SpotMe’s master and slave technology opens up a whole new range of control options for the designer.
