Lighting manufacturer Robe has launched a new product reference app available as a free download to run on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The Robe Product Reference App contains comprehensive information and statistics covering the full Robe product range. Information includes an entire catalogue of key data in the form of one sheet with all the essential technical information you need to know about Robe.The App also has user manuals, DMX charts, gobo layouts, etc. and allows users to download and hold as much reference information as they need. Photometric charts, video demonstrations and assorted other information will be added in the coming weeks.
It is intended as an invaluable tool for lighting designers, operators, programmers and technicians who are on the move, enabling them to have the crucial facts and figures at their fingertips wherever they are. These can then be used for a myriad of purposes from the creation of a design or drawing to compiling a specification or quote, as well as during programming or troubleshooting at a gig.
New information, updates and additions to the Robe range will be added automatically to the stored data when the app is run. It has been developed initially for these two Apple products following extensive research that highlighted them to be the most popular among lighting designers and technicians. It will also run on the iPad and iPad2, with a fully graphically-optimised version for these tablets in the pipeline.
Possible future developments include versions to run on the Android OS, Blackberry and other mobile smartphones and handheld devices. The app was developed by Leeds-based digital media agency Creode, and co-ordinated by Robe UK.
