AC-ET Announced as High End Systems Distributor for UK & Ireland


A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd. has been appointed as the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for the full range of lighting products manufactured by US-based High End Systems, a Barco company.

This energising new partnership was announced on the High End Systems stand at the Prolight+Sound exhibition in Frankfurt, which debuted the new TechnoArc fully featured, soft edged, competitively priced moving light, amongst several recent innovations from the manufacturer.

AC-ET, with its vast portfolio of over 200 technology brands, is one of the UK's leading single-source suppliers of technology to the professional entertainment industry.

High End Systems, with its long history of producing cutting-edge, high quality, reliable moving and digital lights in particular, will find a great synergy with AC-ET's vast experience in supplying the touring, show and events markets.

Says Brad Schiller, High End Systems' Product Marketing Manager, "High End Systems is very excited to be partnering with A.C. Entertainment Technologies to provide UK and Irish customers with a local distributor. Their excellence in customer support, combined with an impressive salesforce, will offer High End Systems products to a broad range of customers. With new products like the DLV, trackspot Bolt, TechnoArc and the existing Wholehog line of lighting consoles, the product range is outstanding for both companies."

AC-ET's UK Sales Director, Jonathan Walters comments, “We are looking forward to making High End Systems' innovative product range an even greater success in our product portfolio, building on the many existing years of experience we have had in supplying High End products to clients for a diverse selection of projects.”

High End Systems' International Sales Manager, Chris Ferrante further explains why AC-ET was chosen as a distributor:

“AC-ET is an established distributor, with a superb reputation, a sales team with the ability to target an extremely broad customer base, and very importantly, fantastic in-house service and first-line of technical support. We have been looking for a UK distributor for some time, and rather fortuitously all this has come together at an opportune moment. A distributor of AC-ET's calibre in the UK is a great thing for both HES and our customers.”

The High End Systems products being distributed through AC-ET will include their new TechnoArc, Technospot, DLV and trackspot Bolt.

The Technospot is a compact, hard-edged luminaire offering great value and performance for club, stage and studio applications.

The brand new DLV Digital Light is the next evolution in ‘creative video lighting', an area where HES has always pioneered and excelled. It's built on the same industry standard software as the renowned DL.3 fixture.

The trackspot Bolt is an LED light source scanner combing all the features of a classic moving fixture with incredible speed.
