EnterTec, a Buckinghamshire-based provider of AV rental and turnkey production services, has made a major investment in lighting equipment from the PROLIGHTS brand, via UK distributor, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET).
The range of new equipment EnterTec has added to its stock includes a range of PROLIGHTS’ moving heads such as Astra Wash 19Pix washlights, Jet Spot4z spots and Jet Beam2 beam fixtures. Static luminaires from the brand include Eclipse FS RGBLs (with a choice of lenses), plus a number of Eclipse Junior profiles and Fresnels. The investment also sees EnterTec add 24 of PROLIGHTS’ Lumipix 15IP, the tour-ready LED pixel batten, to its stock.
Through clients including production management agencies and high-end event producers in the UK and Europe, EnterTec supports events for global brands including several international airlines, vehicle manufacturers, pharmaceutical operations and global financial institutions. On top of this, and uniquely for many conventionally ‘corporate’ production outfits, it also keeps busy with festival work throughout the spring and summer season.
At the time the pandemic took hold in 2020, EnterTec was looking towards its next lighting investment. “Like all others, we chose to wait until we’d seen a marked return to regular in-person events,” said EnterTec director, James Tossell. “Top of our list was the need to work with a reliable, robust brand which could offer longevity and resilience to being used in both corporate and live environments.”
EnterTec first became aware of the PROLIGHTS brand through its Smart Bat, a battery-powered LED uplighter. “The Smart Bats are everywhere,” explained Tossell. “It was quickly apparent how solid and sturdy they were as a unit, and how PROLIGHTS constantly improved and refined the Smart Bat – and indeed all their products.”
AC-ET Technology specialist Andy Mahaffey added: “PROLIGHTS is proving so popular with customers like EnterTec because it offers high-quality, professional and reliable equipment at a good price-point.”
Tossell concludes: “As with any purchase, investing in the right support network is as crucial as choosing the right product to put onto your shelves. Andy has always offered sensible prices at the outset, backed up by AC-ET’s industry-renowned service and manufacturing departments, which are there to help us on the rare but inevitable occasions where there’s a hardware issue or a last-minute rush order on cables and accessories!”
