StarAS adds Midas and Robe
TURKEY: Istanbul-based rental company StarAS has grown its inventory with a range of Midas digital consoles plus moving head lights from Robe. Both purchases were made through the manufacturers’ local distributor, Atempo.
The audio side of the purchase is based arounf a Midas digital console pack. StarAS has purchased a Midas Pro 6, a Pro 2, two Pro 1s and a range of stage boxes which were delivered in time for the summer season. This is the rental company’s first Midas digital investment and reportedly comes as a result of customer requests.
‘We are pleased that StarAS decided to make this heavy investment in digital with Midas consoles,’ said Atempo’s Istanbul regional director, Volkan Konuralp. ‘As the leading rental company in Turkey, they invested in the leading digital audio mixer in the World.’
The lighting side of the investment was a separate sale. This saw Atempo supply StarAS with 48 Robe Robin Pointe, making it the first company in the country to invest in the moving head fixture.
‘Pointe is the new Swiss Army Knife product for Turkish lighting designers. We are seeing shows only using Pointe fixtures as the moving head selection,’ stated Mr Konuralp. ‘StarAS also saw the flexibility and local demand of the product and invested in Robe once more. It is certainly very meaningful for Turkish rental industry.’
