Robert Juliat Take Part in the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games

syog-finals-os-95.jpgRobert Juliat provided the big guns for two big occasions when its largest followspots were specified for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games this summer.

The events were of truly Olympic proportions and demanded the giants of the Robert Juliat range, the mighty Lancelot 4000W HTI and Cyrano 2500W HMI followspots.

Production Resource Group (PRG) supplied no fewer than eight Lancelots and six Cyranos, with Showtec Communications Pte Ltd of Singapore coming to the rescue with an additional Cyrano provided at short notice.

The Opening and Closing Ceremonies took place at [email protected], set against the spectacular backdrop of the Marina Bay and the Marina Bay Sands hotel. At 120m long and 83m wide TheFloat stage is the world's largest floating platform upon which 7000 youths performed to an audience of 25,000.

Created by Singaporeans and aimed at the young audience, the show celebrated the aspirations of a young nation and the determination of the young athletes gathered for the Games. A world-class international team of technical experts, including lighting designer, Koert Vermeulen, helped bring the show to life.

PRG's Senior On Site Manager & Project Manager, Laurent de la Haye, chose the Robert Juliat Lancelot and Cyrano fixtures for the features and reliability they provide. De la Haye is a great advocate of the Lancelot claiming: “It is the best followspot I have ever worked with. Also, I am extremely happy with the after sales support we received, even on the other side of the globe!”

Further games and events across the globe have also favoured Robert Juliat followspots this year. Keep watching the press for more news!
