SolaFrame Studio steals the show at the Residenztheater in Munich
The Marstall originally served as an indoor horse riding stable at the beginning of the 19th century. It turned into a stage for the avant-garde and artistic productions in 1971 and can since be admired for housing the magnificent carriages of the former king.
Lighting technician Thorsten Scholz who worked with the SolaFrame Studio, describes it as the ‘ideal device’ for hanging a short distance above the heads of the audience whilst running silently without disrupting the show. “You can hear a pin drop when this fixture is in use, even while it works,” says Scholz.
The fixture’s ‘extremely fast and precise’ framing shutters and dimming options worked exceptionally well for the studio theatre where 22 SolaFrame Studio fixtures were built into the stables. Scholz particularly liked the dimming feature which he said ”resembles an incandescent light especially in the lower percentages.” The lighting technician sums up the fixtures as being ‘compact, precise, quiet and bright,’ and he remains a keen fan of High End Systems’ automated fixtures.
