History in the making for GLP impression with Jonathan Ross

Jonathan Ross set at BBC TelevisionAs the countdown begins to arguably one of the BBC's most controversial and best loved chat shows, Richard Martin Lighting (RML) continues to support lighting designer, Chris Kempton, on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross.

The TV lighting specialists have been providing a rich and evolving inventory of dynamic industry standard effects since 2002 — and now the href="">GLP impressions have joined the production.

They recently provided the main focus when Groove Armada (featuring Will Young) performed their latest hit, History.

The special chrome GLP impression XL — purchased in July 2009 — offers 240 LED's, making the light output almost three times as bright as the original RGB fixture while maintaining all the other advantages.

“I was delighted with the performance of the GLP units on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross,” said Chris Kempton. Giving his reasons for specifying the impressions, he added, “We always try to achieve fresh and distinctive lighting looks on the show and the impressions are a very powerful unit — both in light output and visual impact.”

He added that the XL units “looked huge on HDTV”, giving an unsurpassed blast of color. “Their range is good, with delicate tints available as well as saturated colors. They are also quiet — which is important on a show like this — and reliable, and I will certainly be using them again on many of my shows.”

July will see the end of the series. However, until then Friday nights will continue to be packed with more A-list celebrity guests, a vast spectrum of musical acts and the charm and charisma of ‘Wossy' himself.
