Robe sheds light on TVOG

Nearly 200 Robe moving lights added dynamics to the lighting design by Manuel da Costa for The Voice of Germany (TVOG) 2012. The full Robe count was 98 x ColorSpot 2500E ATs, 62 x ColorWash 2500E ATs, 26 ColorWash 1200E ATs and two ColorBeam 2500E ATs. Seventy-four of the ColorSpot 2500E ATs were rigged in the trussing system above the stage and the other 24 were hung on a matrix of towers behind the stage and around the central video wall. All 88 of the ColorWash 2500 and 1200E AT fixtures were also in the roof. The pair of ColorBeam 2500E ATs were centre stage behind the opening video screen to silhouette performers for their entrances and exits. The ColorSpot 2500E ATs and the ColorWash 2500E ATs were used as the respective spot and wash backbones of the lighting rig, chosen for their power and intensity. “Reliability, colour and output are excellent,” said Da Costa. “The Robe 2500 Series overall delivers a bright strong and punchy beam,” he stated. For The Voice of Germany 2012 Da Costa worked with a programming team of three, all using grandMA consoles. Michael Baganz controlled all the Robes and moving lights; white lights were operated by Uli Weiss and video was run by Bjoerge Block.
