Robert Juliat's Hong Kong distributor, Pacific Lighting (HK) Ltd, is delighted to report an extremely healthy market across the region with a bumper crop of Robert Juliat sales over the last quarter.

"The increased appetite for Robert Juliat profiles and followspots is very evident," says Pacific Lighting (HK) Ltd director, Hugh Chinnick. "We have experienced almost unprecedented non-project sales in the last few months, with some very high profile venues choosing to replace their old lantern stock with Robert Juliat fixtures or augmenting their existing RJ inventory with further additions."

The Hong Kong Cultural Centre's 1734-seat Grand Theatre, which already boasts four RJ Cyrano 2500W HMI followspots, has replaced a number of fixtures in its main rig with forty-two RJ 710SX2 2500W tungsten zoom profiles. "The Grand Theatre's front of house rig was in severe need of replacement and, having already had experience of RJ 700 Series profiles and Victor followspots in the Concert Hall, the technical team chose to go with more of the same for the Grand Theatre," says Chinnick.

Robert Juliat followspots are also in high demand: the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts has invested in two RJ Manon 1200W MSD short throw spots for its Drama Theatre. These come as additions to a number of Manon followspots already in the APA's possession, two of which are used for teaching purposes and two more of which are located in the Hong Kong Jockey Club Amphitheatre. Meanwhile three RJ Cyrano 2500W HMI followspots are sited in the complex's 1181-seat Lyric Theatre.
