Stage Electrics provide ETC Gio to the Theatre Royal Plymouth
UK – After finding more shows coming to the theatre were requiring a more demanding lighting control, the theatre decided to invest in a new ETC Gio console. Previously using an older generation lighting console, they felt it was appropriate to seek an industry standard upgrade.
“We have a long-term relationship with Theatre Royal Plymouth.” Explained Neal Tomlinson, technical sales consultant, at Stage Electrics. “The venue was already using an older ETC console, that wasn’t able to support the level of lighting control required for incoming touring shows. Requiring a solution that offered intelligent lighting capabilities was important, they needed to accommodate more of the latest LED fixtures and moving heads.”
With most of the shows touring through the venue being programmed on ETC consoles, compatibility was critical, and as the largest UK distributor for ETC, Stage Electrics suggested an ETC Gio 4k, an EOS programming wing and additional touch screens as a solution. “The ETC Gio was the perfect choice for this theatre, due to their need to support large touring shows, with a large lighting rig.” Commented Neal: “Also, familiarity with the operating system was important as it meant no re-learning.”
With upcoming shows Mark Morris Dance Group’s “Pepperland” and “Let Me Look At You”, the theatre will put their new equipment straight to use. As an authorised ETC service centre, Stage Electrics can fully support ETC consoles throughout the UK.
