Robert Juliat Manon’s for Norwest Oceania

Posted on Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Norwest Oceania has replaced their aging 575w Lycian HP midget truss spots with Robert Juliat HMI1200w Manon followspots in what they describe as a major step up in medium throw spot technology.

”The Manon delivers a flicker free f4 (80fc) at 25m making it suitable for TV front fill and as a rock’n’roll truss spot useful f5.6 (160fc) at 15m with a pile of user friendly features that suit our use,” remarked Simon Garret, general manager of the lighting division. “I like that it’s compact enough for truss use with a very steep forward angle standard.”

Simon is impressed by the Manon’s roller fader, repeatable frost, smooth action Iris to blackout and foam rubber insulated handles side and rear.

”The 13-22 degree zoom is particularly useful as is the accessory 240v feed from the ballast,” he added.
