Robe celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and its high-profile stand (hall 12, stand D10) will reflect this journey.
There will be another spectacular live show, which will feature the concluding chapter in Robe’s Lost Worlds trilogy, which began in London at PLASA 2018. The show will play every hour on the hour and the accompanying lighting design will be utilising products from all the latest Robe product ranges.
Robe uses the strategic importance of the expo and its cosmopolitan international visitor base to highlight several important new products.
The T1 Profile, launched at LDI 2018, is specifically designed to fulfil the challenging requirements of three very diverse disciplines – theatre, television and touring – in one comprehensive fixture.
The new MSL (Multi-Spectral Light) LED light source is impressively bright, yet the T1 Profile is full of theatrical subtlety. With CMY colour control, a radical new custom colour creation system and wide ranging CCT control from 2700K to 8000K, all variations of colour are possible!
A closed optical system prevents dust and dirt, and the precise needs of theatrical dimming are catered for with Robe’s ultra-smooth 18-bit dimming system, while the high CRI provides the natural and harmonious skin tones so fundamental to theatre and television / film applications.
The T1 Profile FollowSpot has a digital camera on the head and can be connected to the RoboSpot BaseStation as part of Robe’s popular remote follow spotting system which is perfect for use in theatres, TV studios, concert halls, auditoriums and other assorted venues.
The T1 Wash is the latest fixture in Robe’s T1 LED series of products specifically designed for theatre, television and touring.
Robe’s new IP65 rated iPointe combines innovative ingress protection with the spectacular effect features of the MegaPointe. Designed for festivals, concerts and outdoor events or any scenario needing to deal with inclement or unpredictable weather, the iPointe is a bright, powerful multifunctional luminaire that works equally well as a beam, spot, effects and wash fixture.
The ingress protection has been designed and developed diligently over two years by Robe’s R’n’D team and comprises a series of interconnected filters and air chambers which prevent water ingress into the fixture.
The SuperSpikie was launched at PLASA 2018 and is four times brighter than the original Spikie – launched in 2016 – and with the addition of aerial rotating gobos, it becomes a neat little effects machine with even more looks to blast through its substantial high quality 165mm front lens. The zoom is wider, going from a tight 3.5° beam to a nice soft wash at 42° and the CMY or RGBW colour mix options both offer a rich array of shades and hues.
SilverScan is the first of Robe’s special edition silver range, to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary and Silver Jubilee.
The SilverScan highlights 25 years of Robe lighting fixtures and their continuing evolution resulting in new advanced technology whilst bringing moving light design back to its roots – a small, good-looking performance-based LED scan.
This fixture revisits the spirit and pioneering days of moving lights and combines it with the latest tech and best engineering available, offering all the features everyone loved from the ‘scan era’, when the concept of moving lights became etched in the consciousness of the entertainment technology industry.
Robe’s flagship LED wash-beam products – the Spiider and Tarrantula – and the popular small LEDBeam 150 are also now available with a new lens coating. This protects soft plastic lenses against “surface scattering”, even when scrubbed repeatedly, enabling a brighter output with more contrast and a better overall look.
Robe Anolis Divine 72 features a true narrow beam angle of 6°, absolutely no passive light output and a serious long throw of 120 metres.
Combining its high output, refined colour mixing and excellent quality of light, Divine 72 is a luminaire designed to unleash creative potential across architectural, commercial, industrial, artistic and entertainment installation applications.
