Robert Juliat Lancelot followspots illuminate Lanxess Arena1 August 2014
Robert Juliat’s Lancelot followspots have been chosen to illuminate the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany. The 20,000-seat venue took delivery of four of the devices from German distributor, Lightpower.
The Lanxess Arena offers unique facilities as one of Europe’s largest and most modern multi-functional indoor arenas. It is equipped with state-of-the-art technology which now includes 4000W HTI Lancelot long-throw followspots.
With performances from Rod Stewart, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, Michael Bublé and Bryan Adams lined up at Lanxess for later this year, the venue required a high calibre followspot with long throw distances and the power to highlight those performances of the world-class acts.
“We chose the RJ Lancelot products because we were not completely satisfied with the American manufacturer we worked with before and therefore preferred to use a European product,” commented Lanxess Arena’s technical manager, Martin Rebiszewski.
Robert Juliat’s Lancelot followspot offers 4000W of crisp, flat beam, a very narrow 2°-5° variable zoom, and a powerful output. This is combined with perfect ergonomic features designed with the operator in mind, excellent heat management and a wealth of modular accessories that include progressive effect and colour changing, diffusion and colour correction, and an optional gobo changer.
“The spots are used for almost all of the events hosted at the Lanxess Arena,” continued Rebiszewski. “They are specifically utilised to follow the artists and highlight their performance on stage.”
