SPLITBEAM CHOOSES ROBERT JULIAT

ROBERT JULIAT’S ARAMIS AND THE LATEST COLOUR CHANGERS, IN USE ON JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, AVAILABLE NOW FOR HIRE FROM GEARHOUSE SPLITBEAM. JC

SPLITBEAM CHOOSES ROBERT JULIAT Johannesburg-based theatre equipment supplier, Gearhouse Splitbeam, has now added several Robert Juliat 2500w Aramis followspots to their already comprehensive rental stockholding; becoming the first theatre rental company in South Africa to make these available to local and touring productions. The Aramis is a hardworking reliable and versatile spot with a well established track record for dependability and great performance on theatrical touring rigs. The Splitbeam team already has this high quality product hard at work on Jesus Christ Superstar and believe that this investment will still be paying its dues for many years to come. "They have remarkably high light output for such a compact unit," explains Operations Manager Nasim Bismilla, " they are easy to use, so operators love working with them. Their narrow beam angle that makes them perfect for long distance work and they have enough "oomph" to deliver a dramatic effect despite a high ambient light level." According to the Splitbeam team, the Robert Juliat range of followspots are undoubtedly the premiere followspot choice for the theatre industry. They are particularly impressed by the versatility of the 2500w Aramis unit's zoom optics, which are.. "adaptable for each show and can be tailored specifically to the application.” The company has also recently took delivery of a number of Wybron Coloram™ IT 7.5”colour changers. These top-of-the-range units are the second smallest in Wybron's Colour Changer range and come with a host of improved features. Theatre shows will always have a requirement for scrollers as these are most effectively used to achieve a variety of looks without adding load to the lighting rig. Technological advances in these new Wybron units render them almost silent when scrolling and they are now able to be remotely addressed, a feature which saves time on last minute changes and is particularly appreciated on touring shows, where the get-in time is minimal. The 7.5-inch Coloram™ IT units are designed to fit the following light fixtures: ETC Source 4 Par, Par 56 and 64's, Fresnels and HMI's up to 1.2kw. However Splitbeam also have 4” adaptor plates to make the unit fit all standard Source 4 profiles and Strand SL’s.
