|AFDA chooses Studio Panel LED Luminaires and a Strand 200 Plus Console|
|Tuesday, December 3, 2013|
Recently AFDA, one of the leading film, television and performance schools in Africa, opened a campus in Durban and DWR Distribution’s Nick Barnes was pleased to provide a lighting installation using technology from Philips Strand Lighting for their small television studio at the institution. Studio Panel LED Luminaires were the sensible choice for students who can use the units both inside the studio and on location, and for control a Strand 200 Plus Series console was supplied.
AFDA- The South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance, was established in Johannesburg in 1994 and offers internationally recognized degree programs. With a Cape Town campus in operation since 2003, it was with great excitement that AFDA finally open her doors in Durban. AFDA’s new home is a former municipal building in Glen Anil, Durban North. Over the next four years, on-going renovations will cater for 350 students studying film, TV, music and acting.
Franco Human, the Campus Dean of AFDA Durban, required a flexible lighting rig for a small film studio. He states, “At AFDA we pride ourselves in keeping up-to-date in the latest technology, Durban was the first to purchase LED lighting and DWR brought in and installed the equipment in their promised timeframe and I am pleased with the quality of work.”
DWR supplied six Studio Panels (with barn doors) that run off a Strand 200 Plus console.
“The Studio Panels are lightweight and compact”, said DWR's Barnes. “They can be de-rigged by students and then set up outside, on location, when required.”
With tuneable white color temperature control from 3000K to 6000K, the Studio Panel LED Luminaires are ideal for a wide range of lighting applications. Only requiring 50 watts, they operate on AC or DC voltage, and the battery power input is designed to operate, when needed, using industry standard batteries. An available range of holographic diffusers provide beam angle control with minimal light loss.
Little introduction is needed for the Philips Strand 200 Plus Series console, the manual lighting desk used by students in the studio. It features Ethernet and DMX ports as well as a video display port for users needing more information than is provided by the on-panel LCD display. Easy to set up and use, the 200 Plus Series console is great for any application that needs manual and memory control.
