Derby University extends Investment in Chroma-Q

25 May 2012

UK - The University of Derby has recently purchased a quantity of Chroma-Q Color Force 12 LED fixtures and Chroma-Q Universal colour changers, for use on their BSc (Hons) degree course in Sound, Light and Live Event Technology.

The course was specifically designed so that graduates leave with the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue careers in the live production, technology and event industries.

Course leader, Simon Lewis and media technology lecturer, Kit Lane chose the Chroma-Q products from a wide selection of potential options.

The department already owned a quantity of Chroma-Q Color Block DB4 fixtures that they were very impressed with, so when it came to upgrading their lighting system, they were naturally keen to take another look at Chroma-Q.

Students on the course produce events in various venues around the city and the region; from small club gigs to graduation balls, large concert halls and complex theatre performances.

The new equipment will be used on a daily basis by the 100 plus students on the three or four year course.

The equipment was supplied by Chroma-Q's exclusive UK dealer, A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET).
