First Robe Pointes Reach The UK

Just Lite, the Irish lighting rental company, are now the first recipients in the UK for Robe's new ROBIN Pointe moving head fixtures.
The product was officially launched by Robe at the 2013 Prolight+Sound exhibition in Frankfurt.
Paul Smith, from Just Lite, was one of those visiting the exhibition in Germany.
The Pointe is a new hugely dynamic beam, spot and wash fixture from Robe - small, super-bright and very fast with an intense and sharp parallel beam, as well as a number of features making it a versatile lightsource.
A 5 – 20 degree zoom for spot applications or 0° parallel beam for ‘pure’ beam applications/effects has full focus control, and there is also variable frost, two separate prism effects, a rotating and a static gobo wheel and inbuilt colour wheel.
The lightsource is a 280W Osram discharge lamp, making the Pointe ideal for creating WOW factors on a large or small scale whilst also embracing Robe’s ‘smaller, lighter, brighter’ and more eco-friendly philosophy.
Special characteristics include its speed and an impressive list of additional creative elements like the zoom, linear and circular rotating prisms, rotating and static gobo wheels.
A custom homogeniser works with the rotating gobos to spread the light evenly and achieve optimum projection quality across the full image. The variable frost effect instantly transforms the output into that of an efficient wash light.
The new Pointes will be used on the upcoming 'Forbidden Fruit' festival in Dublin and on a number of Red Bull events through the summer.
