Robe Lights All-LED TPi Awards show

Nearly 300 Robe lighting LED fixtures were utilised in a groundbreaking lighting design by Andy Hurst for the 2012 Total Production International (TPi) Awards.

The event was staged at the Novotel London West in Hammersmith, and it was arguably the first major Awards event ever to be lit entirely with LED lightsources – and also exclusively with Robe lighting products.

This was the result of a collaboration between the Czech Republic based manufacturer and it’s UK operation, Mondiale Publishing, producers of the Awards, and leading UK lighting and visuals rental company HSL, who handled the rigging and installation of the lighting equipment.

The high profile annual TPi Awards honours the best of creative and technical talent, achievements and expertise in professional production and entertainment. The Who’s-Who of the industry was there to be impressed by Robe’s latest eco-friendly technology in action.

The lighting rig featured – for the first time on any major show – Robe’s revolutionary new ROBIN DLX Spot.

This is an RGBW spot lighting fixture with and the ability to produce a complete range of proper high quality variable whites. Fifty-two of these were dotted around the complex trussing system above the stages and audience.

The 52 DLX Spots were joined by 102 ROBIN 300 LEDWashes, 32 ROBIN 600 LEDWashes – Robe’s fastest selling product to date – and 19 ROBIN 1200 LEDWashes. The ROBIN series has been designed to be smaller, brighter, lighter, genuinely power saving and more environmentally friendly.

There were also 60 x CityFlex48 a unique fully configurable product from Robe’s LED series.

The entire lighting rig consumed only 116 Amps of 3-phase power, despite there being almost 300 fixtures on the show, and all lighting, rigging, trussing, distro and cabling fitted into just one and a half trucks.

Says Robe UK’s MD Mick Hannaford, “It was a huge honour for us to get this opportunity, and a real responsibility for both us and for Andy to ensure that it all looked amazing and impressive in front of the whole industry – you could not get a more critical audience! The results were spectacular. HSL did a brilliant job as always, and for Mondiale it was one of the best TPi Awards shows to date”.
