Peitsman Goes Mega

Rotterdam-based rental operation Peitsman Licht en Geluid (Peitsman Lighting & Sound), has expanded its lighting stock with the investment of 36 Robe MegaPointes, 48 Robe LEDBeam 150s and 48 Robe Spiiders.

The move added to its rental stock, which includes Robe miniPointes and LEDWash 600+s, and it follows prior purchases of LEDWash 300s, MMX Spots, DLF Washes and DLX Spots.

The designed-for-theatre DL range fixtures were the first in Benelux when he acquired them in 2012, and they went straight on the road with the Percossa tour, an energetic percussion ensemble which merged circus with a rock concert performance.

Hans Peitsman commented: “The MegaPointes were a complete ‘no-brainer’ of a decision, especially for festivals and dance events” he stated, and before them, the LEDWash 600+ purchase was motivated by the same thinking, but more specifically for theatrical style productions.

It was the MegaPointe’s size-to-features ratio and Robe’s commitment – for some years now – to producing smaller, lighting and brighter fixtures that really impressed him and has kept him loyal to the brand, together with the superlative service from Robe’s Benelux distributor, Controllux.

With B2B projects and top-end industrials making up a large proportion of Peitsman’s work, small lights are essential for hotel-based conferences that typically follow the format of a daytime plenary session with an evening of entertainment, complete with band / DJ. These are usually staged in spaces and rooms where fixtures need to be unobtrusive and easily rigged.
