Elite Audio Visual Productions have recently added 12 x Claypaky Axcor Beam 300s and a whopping 56 x ShowPro LED FusionPARs to their hire inventory.
EAVP’s Brock Preston is on a mission to ensure all of their lighting gear is LED based and as the demand for an LED beam fixture grew, the Claypaky Axcor Beam 300 looked very attractive.
“It has the usual benefits of an LED fixture such as long lamp life, no heat emission and a low power draw, but it is also so much more,” he remarked. “It’s a very compact size, which is great for our work, but has a surprisingly bright light output. The colours and aerial effects are fantastic and I really like the electronic focus. But mostly, it has the Claypaky reputation of quality build and reliability.”
Since acquiring the Axcor Beam 300s three months ago, Brock says they have hardly seen the inside of the warehouse.
Brock certainly likes the ShowPro LED FusionPAR purchasing 56 of the outdoor-rated, quad-colour RGBW LED wash lights with W-DMX receiver onboard.
“We use them on everything especially as they are IP rated,” explained Brock. “The build quality is great, the colours are great and the price point is attractive. In fact, we’ll probably purchase another 30 or 40 later this year because they are in such high demand!”
The ShowPRO LED FusionPARs have become the workhorse of EAVP’s rigs with Brock commenting that they are extremely reliable.
