Follow Me & Robe RoboSpot 

Introducing the revolutionary RoboSpot™ Follow Spot system, a device that allows follow spot operators to remotely control up to 12 fixtures simultaneously without the safety concerns and impracticality of placing personnel at the top of venues such as theatres, stadiums, TV and film sets.  Stunning visual displays are now possible with as many as 12 perfectly synchronised fixtures following a performer across the stage.

With the RoboSpot™ Follow Spot system it is no longer necessary to send operators into the rafters of venues to operate heavy and cumbersome traditional followspot fixtures that take up valuable space in the world’s live entertainment venues. Operators can now safely control multiple fixtures such as the BMFL range of products, T1 Profile, DL4S, DL7S, MegaPointe and Pointe from any location within the venue, reducing set-up times and operating costs.

RoboSpot™

The Robe RoboSpot™ system features a Base Station with a large 15.6-inch HD touch screen for the operator to observe the performance from a “first person” viewpoint and a full range of hand controls for operating the fixtures such as pan, tilt, intensity, focus, faders and many others, all of which are fully customizable for the operator’s benefit. The screen receives the live video feed from the RoboSpot MotionCamera or from the fixture-mounted RoboSpot camera and the operator’s commands are instantly transferred to the luminaires via DMX control with no lag for perfect motion tracking across the stage.

Extra controls are available through the touch screen display as well as four programmable jog-wheels with an additional 10 fully configurable buttons for a truly customised user experience. The remote lighting desk still retains control of the internal features of the fixtures such as light intensity and colour. All these features combine to make RoboSpot™ an innovative follow spot system.

Now available worldwide the RoboSpot™ Follow Spot system is available for purchase through Robe’s global network of subsidiaries and distributors.

Remote Follow Spot Control

Follow-Me is a cost effective Art-Net based calibration software package that utilizes moving lights as follow-spots. Where traditional methods of using FOH or truss mounted follow spots impose cost and rigging implications Follow-Me offers a cost saving, quick to implement alternative.

Not only can Follow-Me be used to follow one or more performers with multiple moving heads but individual fixture selection offers the additional functionality of preset positioning for solo’s and surprise performances.

Follow-Me offers a range of advantages over traditional follow spot usage. Lower labor costs, freedom in lamp positioning, improved follow-spot angles, eliminating kill seats, offering accurate timing for color bump cues, following performers with gobo effects or color chases. Follow-Me also solves weight issues on smaller roofs where typical truss seats Inc. operators are too heavy or deep to implement.

Follow-Me benefits lighting designers- technical producers and event planners anywhere performers require illumination and is easily implemented on touring productions, festival stages, TV studios and concert halls.
