Robe Show Lighting has launched a completely new range of MediaSpinner products. Robe’s MediaSpinner is designed and built to display and rotate banners, screens, flags, and assorted other media. Applications include exhibitions, conferences, shows, product launches, corporate events, parties, promotions and any event requiring branding to be displayed in an eye-catching way.
The units are fully DMX controllable and can be run from any lighting desk or in standalone mode. A 4-digit LED display on the base enables onboard programming. Master/slave operation using a serial cable is another simple control option, running multiple fixtures through one unit.
Variable speed rotation in both directions is possible, and smooth and precise movement is guaranteed with the use of 16-bit DMX. Its virtually silent cooling system makes Robe’s MediaSpinners ideal for low-noise applications.
The rigging system utilizes two Omega clamps, allowing the MediaSpinner to be truss mounted in many positions. The same Omega clamps are used for fixing the pipe or tube with the advertising banner.
The StageBanner 10 AT was the first product from the new MediaSpinner range to be released. Using the base of Robe’s renowned 250 AT moving heads, the StageBanner can take a maximum load of 10Kgs and will display and rotate advertising banners. Control is straightforward, especially for venues and live show applications that are already using DMX lighting control. Up to three onboard programs, each containing up to 99 steps, can be stored in the unit’s base.
The StageBanner50 AT is a 50Kg load version for heavier duty use.
The new MediaSpinner50 AT provides even greater versatility. It features a multimedia extension with a panel for attaching to plasma screens, LCD displays, projectors or loudspeakers. It also has a BNC RGBHV video connection, 3-pin XLR audio connection, DMX data in/out via 3- and 5-pin XLRs, plus a DMX controllable power supply output for independent on/off switching of the load supply.
