Spotrack, manufacturers of the world’s leading remotely operated follow spot system, will be exhibiting at this year’s Prolight + Sound show at Messe Frankfurt from 2-5 April. Spotrack enables an operator to remotely control from any location, any number of moving lights as follow spots. It works with any moving light and any lighting console, in any performance space and can be used in all entertainment sectors for live production from anywhere in the venue.
The Spotrack team will be on hand to explain and discuss all aspects of the hardware and software that comprise a system which is revolutionising the lighting industry’s approach to spotlight control. Spotrack systems have been in action on a number of high profile global events in recent months as more and more lighting designers and production managers acquaint themselves with the clear advantages the system provides. On the live rock and roll front, heavy metal giants Metallica used Spotrack to supplement their spotlights on a number of stadium gigs, before moving exclusively to the system for their subsequent arena tour.
In Australia, where Kate Miller-Heidke won the first national televised selection show for Eurovision – Australia Decides – Spotrack played a key role in the delivery of a spectacular performance that featured ten very different acts and attracted a huge TV audience. In China, Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment are working with Fremantle and Hunan TV on a 13-part “World’s Got Talent” show to be aired in April – Spotrack will be illuminating the biggest stars from more than 30 of the ‘Got Talent’ franchises from around the globe.
CEO Liam Feeney is looking forward to Prolight + Sound, which will see the Republic of Ireland based company unveil the latest version of Spotrack: “These are exciting times for Spotrack. The adoption of the system by highly-respected professionals of the calibre of Troy Eckerman and Paul Collinson, emphasises just what an impact we’ve had in this area of the lighting industry. We continue to develop the concept and at Prolight we’ll be showing visitors the very latest edition of the system.”
Spotrack will be exhibiting at Hall 12 F91 at Prolight + Sound show, Messe Frankfurt and look forward to discussing the next generation of spotlight technology with lighting professionals and enthusiasts from around the world.
