TechRig adds Q-7

Published: MEA

SOUTH AFRICA: TechRig has added to its rental portfolio with SGM’s Q-7 flood blind strobes. The purchase was made through the manufacturer’s local distributor, SET Africa.

‘We were looking for cutting-edge LED solutions, and that’s why we selected the SGM products,’ said director of TechRig, Michael Collyer. ‘The Q-7 is a nice small multipurpose unit, which can be used as a colour washing set piece to eye candy extravaganza.’

‘It’s great when others see the potential we also see in the SGM product range - which availability for the SA market has now been expanded through TechRig,’ added operations director of SET Africa, Marin Matakovic.

Lighting designer, Francois van der Merwe, recently deployed TechRig’s newly acquired Q-7s for a corporate event in Cape Town. ‘I think it was the fixture’s output that stunned everyone; that was the big talking point among the crew. Even the sound guys took notice. But from a designer’s point of view I really like the colour mixing as well and that size of the physical unit - you can sneak them in anywhere on your design.’

TechRig installed the products under Mr van der Merwe’s design guides to create the exact look he was going for at the gala dinner and awards show. ‘We wanted to create a nice multi-functional and multi-purpose look, especially between the awards and the entertainment. We wanted to create nice moments in the entertainment section where set, A/V and lighting were working together in synergy for a visual spectacular,’ explained Mr van der Merwe.

The Q-7 fixtures were stacked around the set. ‘This allowed us to frame the set, and in other sections blend the set and lighting rig together,’ explained the lighting designer. ‘We also used the Q-7 as eye candy and pixel mapped them with the A/V content, as well as used them as stabs to highlight big changes in the music.’
