Galway-based stage lighting equipment supplier, Cue One Ireland has invested in the multi award-winning Chroma-Q Color Force II luminaire – for servicing its theatrical and corporate events clients.
Cue One Ireland wanted to replace its existing battens and dimmable fluorescents stock with a versatile all-in-one fixture that accurately delivered subtle pastels for lighting sets & backdrops in clients’ corporate colours at events, as well as providing punchy, bold colours for lighting cycloramas during theatrical shows.
After looking at various colour-mixing battens on the market, Cue One Ireland‘s Managing Director, Kieran Cooney felt there was only one choice that would meet the company’s needs and placed an order for eight Color Force II 48™ battens.
He commented: “We chose the Color Force II for the quality of light and colours produced, particularly its ability to achieve difficult pastels. The end results stood out against a number of other cycs and battens that we looked at.”
Since investing in the fixtures, Cue One Ireland has supplied them for a number of high-profile theatrical and corporate events.
Kieran commented: “The Color Force II fixtures have reduced the stress and anxiety in achieving the lighting results our clients desire. The feedback from them has been fantastic. Many designers are complementing the wide range of colours that can be achieved with the fixture, as most other battens on the market are very “rock ‘n’ roll” with their colour palette. The fixtures have even had to be be dimmed in some cases, as sometimes they are too bright!”
The Color Force II fixtures were supplied to Cue One Ireland by A.C. Entertainment Technologies.
Kieran continues: “The service I have received from A.C. has been top notch as always. We’re really happy with their recommendation of the Color Force II, as there’s been a steady uptake of hire jobs using them since they went into our stock a few months ago and clients love them. If the current level of demand continues, we may well need to invest in some more in the future!”
The Color Force IIs have recently been used on Nora, a Corn Exchange Theatre production by Belinda McKeon in collaboration with Annie Ryan.
