Mediapix acquires Avolites Arena
Singapore Based Rental company MediaPix Pte Ltd has recently acquired two units of Avolites Arena as part of their Lighting inventory expansion plan. Founded in year 2012, MediaPix Pte Ltd has since been one of the prominent rental companies in Singapore, providing technical solutions and Audio Visual & Lighting equipment rentals. For lighting equipments, Mediapix has established itself as one of the premier solution provider by investing into good fleet of Clay Paky, Robe & Martin fixtures. In order to support his ever growing lighting department, Mediapix has decided to invest into 2 units of Avolites Arena, after going through a few demo sessions from the local distributor – Acoustic & Lighting System (A&L).
“Honestly, I wasn’t very confident with Avolites initially as I have encountered some issues with their older consoles. However, after I’ve seen the product demonstrations and also understanding the progress and software development of Avolites from A&L, I think it is fair to say that it should the perfect solution for most of our shows. I am also looking forward to check out their soon to be released new concept of Show control, dubbed the “ Synergy”. It is also the reason why I’ve chosen the Arena for better processing and more control surfaces”, commented Mr. Frankie Yee, the Technical Director of MediaPix.
Eugene Yeo, the General Manager of A&L shares, “I know it was a tough decision from Frankie and I thank him for trusting us. We have shown him some demos prior to his purchase, of course his concern should be on Avolites’ future development and I’m glad that we managed to secure this together with him. We have provided a few rounds of training to his team and we will be prepared to do more trainings in future, especially with the introduction of “Synergy” in near future”.
The Avolites Arena is the ideal desk for festivals, theatres and anywhere that a larger control surface is required. The console contains 40 precision playback faders in 3 payable groups and 20 programmable macro executor buttons. It also comprises 3 metal shafts optical attribute encoders and 4 optical playback encoder ports. A brand new optical output means the Arena is equipped for fibre connections, with no signal loss over long distances. Offering seamless Multi User compatibility, the Arena can be used as master, back-up or extra programming surface, considerably cutting your programming time by allowing multiple Titan programmers to work simultaneously, before the main console takes charge.
