Robe LEDBeam 350s for Audio Engineering

Robe’s LEDBeam 350 moving light continues to be in demand worldwide including in South Africa. 

Another recent LEDBeam 350 investor in Cape Town is Audio Engineering who have always had Robe moving lights, starting with ColorSpot 700E ATs, followed by LEDWash 300s, 300E Spots and Washes and then LEDBeam100s.

Since ramping back up post-pandemic, lighting investments have re-started to keep pace with the demand for LED screens which took off during Covid due to streaming events plus hybrid business meetings and presentations.

“The time was also right to start renewing some of the lighting stock anyway, so we sought excellent good value and flexible products,” explained Marcel Bezuidenhout, founder of Audio Engineering. “We wanted a fixture that was essentially a “bridge” between international concerts and small to medium premium end industrial events and something that could be useful for both! LEDBeam 350s are highly usable in multiple scenarios, either as an intense narrow beam or as a wash. They are compact yet powerful, small, fast, light and exactly what we need!”

Audio Engineering also wanted a luminaire that was cross-rentable when they needed to boost the numbers, and thanks to DWR and the LEDBeam 350 for the South African market that is the case.

Bezuidenhout and some of his team visited the Robe factory in the Czech Republic after Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt this year, He noted that Robe’s product development is linear and consistent.
