HSL Goes Global With Massive New Martin Screen Investment

News Image
A UK lighting rental company has just taken delivery of 150 square metres of Martin Professional's latest lightweight EC20 20 mm pitch LED screen plus 48 panels of their popular LC2140 40 mm pitch surface as part of a major new investment.
The HSL deal also included substantial quantities of MAC moving lights worth close to £3 million.
Most of HSL's new screen went straight into action at the 2011 Global Gathering dance festival, staged at long Marston Airfield, near Stratford on Avon. HSL supplied screen surfaces to the main stage and the Wax:On/Hospitality Arena, together with lighting for the main stage and five tented arenas plus the Terrace, once again working with lighting and video designers, Electric Fly.
HSL's Mike Oates explains that they have invested in the screen to satisfy the increasing demands of lighting designers who often now include scenic and visual design elements like screen surfaces and video into their creations.
"I know we've all been talking about 'convergence' for some time," stated Oates, "But now the circumstances, the products, the budgets and the workable ideas are really in place for screens to become integrated into any lighting and visuals rig whatever the size. At HSL, we are dedicated to offering clients the very best technology available to achieve their visions and meet their specs".
