Avery Fisher Hall, home of the New York Philharmonic and Lincoln Center, has taken delivery of two DMX-controlled Robert Juliat Cyrano followspots from PRG/NJ. Avery Fisher Hall is part of The Lincoln Center complex on the west side of Manhattan. The concert hall, which is used for a wide variety of events, opened in 1962 and has a capacity of 2,738 seats.
The Cyrano followspots replace aging fixtures. "The new Cyranos are the only followspots in the theater," says Jason Marsh, associate director of production at Lincoln Center. "We chose them for their exceptional quality and ease of use."
Marsh notes that productions in Avery Fisher Hall range from classical, rock and pop concerts to corporate events, television specials and network upfronts. "Television is the area requiring the highest-quality lighting, and TV lighting designers have requested Cyranos by name," he reports. "Before we invested in them, productions had to bring them in as rental equipment."
"Robert Juliat's Cyrano fixtures stand out for their consistency and quality, and we're glad to add them to our inventory," concludes Marsh.
