Strand lights the way for Atlas Studios
SOUTH AFRICA: Johannesburg-based TV and film facility, Atlas Studios, has recently undergone a lighting refresh. The studio has upgraded five of its 10 dimmers with Philips Strand Lighting Wallrack 24 way digital dimming panels.
The upgrade came due to wear on the previous system from 14 years of use. The new dimmers were supplied by the manufacturer’s local partner, DWR Distribution, and installed by DimBright Electrical.
‘The studio had many circuits which were faulty and could no longer be used,’ explained Keith Pugin from DWR Distribution. ‘The 10 dimmers are mounted on a wall outside the actual studios. We removed five of the existing dimmers which were aging and irreparable and replaced them with Philips Strand. Jacob Mogale and his team from DimBright Electrical were sub-contracted to help with the install and as always did a great job.’
With the project complete, Atlas now has a full complement of circuits available to ensure proper studio lighting.
