Robe lighting has reported back from a "super busy" PLASA 2013 at the ExCeL London, where the team showcased nine new products and won a third PLASA Innovation Award.
Robe’s CEO Josef Valchar comments: "We are really happy. There was a constant stream of people to the booth, interest in all the latest products and of course, we are delighted to win another Innovation Award, which is a great recognition of all the hard work and foresight of our product design and R ‘n’ D teams."
The Robe stand was designed by Nathan Wan and also featured a light-show, also designed and programmed by Wan.
Robe’s International Sales Director Harry von den Stemmen said: "Having an open single level booth with a central reception / bar was excellent. It made great use of the space which was accessible to everyone and we have certainly experienced some good business and enjoyed working in ExCeL."
Robe’s new products included all those launched at Prolight in April – The Pointe, MiniMe, CycFx 8, Cyclone and MMX Blade.
Newly launched at PLASA this year was the Parfect 100, a static version of the LEDBeam 100.
All of Robe’s ROBIN Series products were prominent on the stand, including the LEDWash, MMX and DL ranges.
The Pointe multi-purpose fixture was a particular attraction on the stand.
In five months The Pointe has become Robe’s fastest selling product with over 10,000 orders received (before PLASA). The company has recently completed an expansion of the factory in the Czech Republic to increase the production capacity for Pointes.
This year the company won its third Innovation Award helped for the MiniMe, a new LED effects luminaire with full video output.
The Judges said: "It is the first to bring a new form factor to digital luminaries. It’s conservative in its use of (DMX) channels and is a digital moving light with the simplicity of a conventional automated fixture."
