Black Light invests in High End Systems
UK – Edinburgh-based lighting, sound and AV company, Black Light, is continuing its relationship with ETC by acquiring 26 High End Systems SolaFrame 750s to their already impressive hire stock.
Calder Sibbald, head of hire and production at Black Light says:, “Black Light have been looking for the next addition to our ever expanding moving light stock and eager to see what High End Systems could bring to our strong relationship with ETC. We were blown away with the demo from Jeremy Roberts from ETC, with its high output, smooth operation and excellent price point; it was the perfect unit for us to add to our fleet of moving light.”
The SolaFrame 750s are the smallest and newest LED framing fixture in the Sola Series family of automated tools. Perfect for small to medium sized venues, the SolaFrame 750 features a compact footprint but with a massive feature set. Features include; 11,300 lumen output, 6-50 degree zoom, on board lens defogging, rotating gobo wheel plus fully continuous animation and much, much more. The SolaFrame 750 provides the largest arrangement of effects currently available in a fixture of its size.
Since Black Light acquired them, the new fixtures have already been hard at work touring across Scotland with both the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s production of Spring Awakening and Grid Iron Theatre Company’s production of Bingo. Grant Anderson, lighting designer for Spring Awakening states: “The SolaFrame 750 was chosen as the backlight workhorse as it’s a compact unit with great saturated colours and a high light output. The fully swiping frames are fast and smooth and the gobo wheel has a good mix of break-up, textures and beam effects. This exciting new addition to Black Light’s hire stock offered the right price point to allow a higher density of fixtures within the rig, making the design fuller and more dynamic.”
Black Light has also acquired a stock of Road Hog 4 lighting control consoles, the most cost effective Hog to date. With the perfect balance between economy and performance the Road Hog 4 is unparalleled in the industry. Benefiting a familiar programming interface, 22 inch high resolution multi-touch display providing ample space for customised screen layouts, an additional video output and four on-board DMX universes. Other features include two gigabit Ethernet ports for Art-Net, sACN and multi-console working, ten playback Faders, 12 user keys and wireless networking capabilities.
Jeremy Roberts of ETC says: “It is always a pleasure to work with Calder and the Black Light team, they have a commitment to excellence that is refreshing and forward thinking, we are delighted to have them as part of the High End family.”
