As interest in and demand for ArcSystem trends steeply upwards in North America, GDS in conjunction with exclusive US distributor ACT Lighting, has created a network of authorised dealers who have received specialist training in relation to the products. The Authorised ArcSystem Integrator Programme (AAI) is designed to ensure easier and more widespread regional access to the ArcSystem range, as well us underpinning that access with project support and advice.
In addition to its stockholding, each AAI has demonstration product as well as an in-house projects and installations team. By virtue of its specialist training, therefore, the AAI can consult, supply, install and commission the world's most advanced LED house-lighting system at a local level.
ArcSystem is a range of auditorium LED lighting fixtures that are truly dimmable from 0% to 100% using the wireless ARC Mesh protocol for control. This allows for the retro-fitting of auditoria without the need to rewire. Given its presence in such iconic and prestigious settings as the Grade 1 listed Bristol Old Vic, Britain's oldest working theatre, it is perhaps unsurprising that ArcSystem should currently be finding its way to all corners of the globe. Low energy, sustainable lighting solutions are now a worldwide pre-requisite for all auditoria and ArcSystem leads and lights the way in this respect.
In recognising the need to operate at closer quarters with end-users, GDS, through its AAI Programme has taken another meaningful step forward in developing and expanding its business in North America.
As GDS celebrates its ninth year, the award winning UK manufacturer has become a truly global company, having established an international sales and distribution network in over 40 countries. With seven market-leading brands and a pioneering approach to bespoke projects, GDS continues to innovate at the forefront of the entertainment, architectural, television and corporate markets. From LiteWare, the original battery powered wireless LED up-lighter to the multi-award winning BluesSystem working lights; from CueSystem cue lights to ArcSystem auditorium lighting, GDS continue to create innovative, flexible solutions that have this year found their way from Broadway to the West End and from Cirque De Soleil to the Olympics.
