Robe is exhibiting at Prolight+Sound Middle East for the second year, and will be sharing the stand with four partner companies, ArKaos, MDG and MagicFX. The Middle East's Professional Lighting, Audio & AV Technology Exhibition is set to be held from Sept 23-25 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Several new Robe products will be highlighted at the show – the MegaPointe, LEDBeam 150 and Tarrantula moving lights, plus the RoboSpot remote follow spotting system - in an environment where customers can have a closer look and get all their technical and creative queries fully answered.

Robe’s flagship BMFL range of high-powered moving lights will also be on the stand together with other popular fixtures like the Spiider LED wash beam
As the only exhibition in the Middle East that is targeting the key markets of rental, staging and multi-purpose venue entertainment lighting installations, Robe feels it’s important to have a presence. The company sees the expo as a valuable gateway for consolidating existing relationships and making new ones.

MegaPointe: With super-bright and sharp parallel beams, excellent gobo projection, precise movement, smooth CMY colour mixing and dimming plus a multitude of beam splitting, wash and shaping effects, the MegaPointe has already been a universal success for Robe since its launch in September 2017. Robe’s R&D team worked closely with Osram to provide a 470W lamp that aligns perfectly with the MegaPointe’s cutting edge optical system. The design provides a brilliant, crystal clear, razor-edged beam, adjustable via the zoom from a tight, punchy 1.8 degree beam to a wide 42-degree wash.

RoboSpot System: Robe’s RoboSpot is a follow spot system that allows the simultaneous remote control up to 12 fixtures without the safety concerns and or practicality of having people working at a height above the stage or at the very top of venues like theatres and stadiums, or in elevated positions on film and TV sets. The RoboSpot BaseStation has a large 15.6-inch HD touch screen display, so the operator observes the performance space from a “first person” perspective – like most video games.

Robe Middle East’s general manager Elie Battah commented: “We are expecting PL+S ME 2018 to provide an overview of the latest technologies and ideas for the entertainment technology industry generally … by which I mean across the whole region. “It will also bring many new people to Dubai, which is still growing and being developed as an international business and cultural hub … as well as a desirable, high quality tourist destination. There are so many opportunities for future investment and for anyone involved in producing events and festivals”.

MDG and ArKaos will be sharing the stand with Robe ME Trading LLC in Hall 4.0 Stand C12.

ArKaos: Digital control specialists ArKaos will present their dynamic and flexible range of lighting, video and media control solutions – including Media Master 5.3, GrandVJ and An-KI – running on a range of their professional media servers.

MDG: MDG returns to Prolight+Sound Middle East for the second year running, bringing a selection of its award-winning and world-renowned haze and fog generators. Established in 1980, MDG’s rock-solid generators continue to cement the company’s long-standing reputation for the finest and most reliable atmosphere generators on the market.
