Robe Robins hit highlights in Singapore
18 January 2011
Singapore - Lighting design and rental company Highlight Systems - run by Roy Chooi - has just invested in 36 Robe Robin 300 Spots for its hire stock.
The company has been operating for five years and is currently based in the central Ubi Avenue area of Singapore. Highlight's core business is lighting design - and for these projects they will also usually supply the equipment, as well as doing direct rentals and installations.
Chooi bought his first Robe moving lights - ColorSpot 700E ATs two years ago from Louis Teo at Robe SEA (South East Asia), since which time they have not stopped working and have been utilised for a wide array of shows and events.
"I like the brightness and the features/functionality of the Robin 300 Spots," he says, "and the fantastic support and service from Robe SEA."
Louis Teo comments, "The fact that a respected designer like Roy has endorsed this product means a lot in Singapore - many people look to Roy and other proactive lighting designers, and take their lead from the products they are using and specifying."
Since the Robin 300 Spots were delivered, they have been used for numerous University Cultural Centre dance shows in several different theatres and for a THK produced charity variety show for Channel 8 TV, shot at the Mediacorp broadcast studios.
