The teams from James Thomas Engineering (JTE) and PixelRange team were at the Gielgud Theatre at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) to showcase a selection of new products with the help of RADA’S head of lighting Matt Prentice. The two brands are closely linked with the Academy as JTE have supported the students at RADA for a few years.
Amongst other LED innovations on display was the new PixelSmart LED multi-role luminaire. Now in production, PixelSmart has featured on the televised Royal Variety Performance as well as recent tours with Andi Watson – the LD behind the ideas for the product.
Also available for preview was JTE’s new X-Truss. The company says that the new trussing system can be flat packed to be 60% more space efficient – saving both time and money.
“The day was a great success,” said Paul Young, general manager for the two companies. “We were able to take our newest, pioneering products to our customers and walk them through the different applications. We also took the opportunity to preview other products imminent for launch and gain valuable feedback. I’d like to thank all who attended for making this a very enjoyable and fruitful event.”
