Robert Juliat Followspots Favoured

Robert Juliat added French flavour to Spain’s Cap Roig, Girona music festival in summer 2017, with support from ABS Entertainment Service.

The local rental company ensured every performer looked like a star by supplying a pair of Robert Juliat Merlin 2500W and Robert Juliat Aramis 2500W followspots as Front of House support throughout the duration of the 2-week event.

Merlin and Aramis are 2 of Robert Juliat’s most popular followspots and the team from ABS Entertainment Service rigged 2 of each on Front of House towers for maximum effect. From here, Merlin and Aramis were put through their paces and showed themselves able to cut cleanly through the lighting from a large rig of moving lights and haze, demonstrating their extreme capabilities and proving perfect for the job.

“Followspots are an important part of the show and many artists request Robert Juliat products,” said ABS Entertainment Service’s Iker Gartzia. “We want the best for our clients and know that when we use Robert Juliat equipment there will be no problems with the show.”

Both of the aforementioned Robert Juliat fixtures are ideal for a festival such as Cap Roig. Merlin, designed specifically for touring and music events. Complete with 3° to 12° zoom, Robert Juliat Merlin and Aramis are suitable for both medium and long range applications in a followspot.

“Both Merlin and Aramis made such an impact at the Cap Roig due to their spectacular and excellent performance,” commented Diana García, Marketing Manager at Entertainment Equipment Supplies (EES), Robert Juliat’s exclusive distributor for Spain. “The performance of the RJ followspots brought into focus the commitment of ABS Entertainment Service and Robert Juliat to true quality. It is been great to team up with them for such great project!” 

The festival’s Assistant Lighting Designer and Operator, Jose Luis Unzueta, added: “We are always glad to know that Robert Juliat has been specified, where Robert Juliat products are, we can guarantee the show will be safe!”

“For ABS Iluminación Robert Juliat is a reference in the show industry,” concluded Gartzia. “Our journey with their followspots started years ago due to the demand for them from our customers for their shows. We started with Aramis and now we are delighted to have added Merlin to our rental inventory. The strength of the output and robustness of the build more than satisfy our expectations and those of our customers.” /
