The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest annual arts festival in the world. In 2014, the Strand RAMA LED FRESNEL was installed at C south, one of The Fringe’s most exciting venues.
Installed for the Fringe’s three-week run, the Rama LED Fresnels took care of the warm and cool front-of-house wash light at C South. The luminaires proved extremely popular with the different theater companies using the venue.
“Its versatility has been fundamental in the success of our designs,” says Owen Horton, Theater Manager, C south. “Because there were so many different shows, and because many shows only have five to ten minutes to set up, it’s been incredibly useful not having to run up and down ladders and refocus lights. We simply load the showfile and go.”
The Rama LED Fresnel also helped minimize heat output and power consumption: “The 90W engine draws just a total of 120W. This means we can put the whole rig on the existing supply, which also runs the audio and the catering outside. Plus, it doesn’t generate much heat, even after heavy usage, which helps keep the audience and performers cool.”
