MGG’s FOLLOWSPOTS SHINE AT THE SAMA AWARDS

Owner Mark Gaylard and Renier Smit (Technical Sales and Support) from Electrosonic SA's Lighting team had been discussing the usefulness of Followspots for some time, and this year Mark decided to employ them at the presentation of the South African Music Awards (SAMAS) held annually at Sun City.
MGG purchased the following Units:
- 2 x Robert Juliat Aramis 2.5k Followspots plus Stands
- 2 x Robert Juliat Super Korrigan Followspots plus Stands
Since designing the first HMI followspot, Pixie, in 1975, Robert Juliat has become the preferred manufacturer for lighting designers and operators alike. To produce a powerful followspot is not a difficult task, but to make a followspot with exceptional quality of beam, dimming ability, gobo projection, AND an outstanding light output, all wrapped in an ergonomically pleasing package, is the real challenge. Fortunately it is a challenge to which Robert Juliat has risen, and has emerged as market leader in the followspot industry.
Opera houses love them for their superb dimming capabilities, while rental houses benefit from a fast return on their investment. Equipment-sensitive studio environments appreciate the beam's flat-field with no hotspot.
Robert Juliat followspots are available in short or long throw versions and with different wattages and lamp types to suit every application. Condenser optics give a flat, even beam with optimum light output, and variable zoom optics maintain sharp focus at every beam angle.
Each Robert Juliat followspot comes with a full range of accessories and a wealth of ergonomic features for comfortable and efficient operation.
"When the followspots arrived they where shipped straight to the SAMAS in the original Packaging and have been working ever since," commented Mark.
"I am very pleased to have been able to assist MGG and Mark, at Electrosonic SA we always try our best for all our clients," said Renier. "Because large format followspot sales are rare, it's very exciting when they do occur. Having Robert Juliat spots in MGG inventory has always a goal of ours".
