Steinigke with COB in the USA
A year ago, Steinigke Showtechnic of Germany introduced their new COB technology at the Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt. And as with every new technology, there was a certain degree of uncertainty at first. But by now the company say it is obvious: it is an innovation in LED technology - and that this is just the start.
The new technology was noted and awarded by the readers of German Soundcheck magazine, which was presented at Prolight + Sound. Steinigke has also now taken its COB units to the USA, where they have been used at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Coachella and the Daytona 500. Bruce Bandy from Inner Circle Distribution notes: "At Ultra Music Festival, we featured the COB audience blinders and the lighting directors were absolutely thrilled by the power, colour and handling – the fixtures stood out in a very large space and made a tremendous impact."
General manager Matthias Schwab says: As a light source, COB technology is fully accepted and we can expect quite a bit more in the future. Our thorough research and development is always on-going so we can develop the next COB fixture. As a pioneer, Steinigke has gained a lot of experience and we have more than 50 products in stock with COB technology. The chips have clearly become a part of the market and they are a good example of the innovative spirit in the company."
