TLC Global announce two new partnerships
Lighting distributor TLC Global have added two new brands to their portfolio – Montreal-based Minuit Une and Irish tracking company Spotrack. “Our team prides itself on the ability to put innovation and technology in the hands of our creative Australian and New Zealand peers,” said Sean McKernan, General Manager of TLC Global.
“As designers and users ourselves, we were instantly drawn to Minuit Une and the incredible potential that their IVL technology offers. It unlocks an alternative way of thinking and inspires change in how we see and utilise light. This technology impels new possibilities and creates a category of lighting products that has no rival.”
IVL Carrés are game-changing lighting products that allow you to create multidimensional advanced shapes from one source of light. Each IVL Carré covers a wide area by producing four directive light plans, one on each side of the square. Each plan is adjustable at a 180° angle to create stunning perspectives when combined together. The light plans of each IVL Carré can be cut into 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64 beams.
“With their skilled and talented team, TLC Global is known for providing excellent guidance and support to customers, before and after sales,” said Eric Phelep, Sales director of Minuit Une.
“That is exactly what we are primarily looking for in our partners: reliability and confidence! TLC Global will be the best possible partner to develop our brand in the very promising Australian and New Zealand market.”
Spotrack AFS is an automated intelligent followspot tracking system that uses any DMX controlled moving light as a followspot, with the capacity to control up to 20 moving lights simultaneously. “Davey and the Team at TLC Global have been fantastic and we have been working with them for some time on this product,” commented Liam Feeney, Managing Director of Spotrack.
“Their ideas and insights into real-world uses and operation of the Spotrack system have been amazing. TLC Global’s team has the knowledge and experience to understand the infinite capabilities of the system and to see that it is so much more than just ‘another’ automated followspot system.”
“The fact that you can purchase a system for around the same price as a 2500W long-throw followspot and have a system that can control up to twenty spots at the same time from any angle, keeping the spot operators out of the truss or FOH towers is a win for all concerned” remarked Davey Taylor, Managing Director of TLC Global.
Spotrack is currently touring with Metallica in the USA as their exclusive followspot system. Four systems on the tour each control five lights per performer.
