PRO LAB distributes the Minuit Une IVL range in the GCC region
PRO LAB has recently partnered with MINUIT UNE, a French manufacturer of lighting specialists based in Paris, to deliver and be the exclusive distributor in the GCC region.
Minuit Une, develops, designs, and manufactures lighting solutions dedicated to giving smaller productions “the magnitude and emotions of big arena lighting experiences” with its IVL lighting range. PRO LAB is a distributor of professional audio and lighting equipment specialising in PA and conference systems, pro-audio and lighting, studio and DJ gear, as well as stage and rigging.
Rami Haber, managing director at PRO LAB, commented: “We have chosen to partner with Minuit Une because we believe in their latest innovation of the IVL Photon to the lighting industry. It is a hybrid fixture by all mean from an immersive, decorative and moving beams all from a single laser source. The need of a small fixture in mid-sized venue and in addition with the ability to create all those effects from one luminaire is a big saving for the end client from space and number of equipment needed to achieve a similar result.
“We forecast a big demand for the IVL Photon in the market as the nature of venues in the club industry and event staging are shrinking in size, but the entertainment element is still required and this where IVL is a perfect unit to be used,” concluded Haber.
Minuit Une CEO, Aurélien Linz, added the following: “When we met the team of PRO LAB, we knew that it was a match between both companies. In order to answer the customer needs for more effective and more creative light shows, especially in mid-sized venues, it is very important to share with our partner a common vision on the future of our industry. With a mix of technical and creative skills inside the company, and a strong will to make the lighting industry entering a new phase of its history, PRO LAB is definitely the partner we were looking for to diffuse the IVL solution in this area of the world.”
About Minuit Une
Minuit Une was founded in 2013 by a team of optical engineers, passionate about music and great fans of the live concert scene.
Going from concert to concert, mostly in mid-size venues and occasionally to bigger shows, they always looked at the scenic lights during concerts with very technical eyes.
And they made an observation: while the biggest set-ups allow the creation of incredible lighting experiences, immersion and perspectives are harder to be produced when there is fewer possibilities to have plenty of mono-directional fixtures, such as spots and beams, with many trusses. In other words: lighting options were limited by the logistics in mid-size venues.
IVL™ Lighting came to life by the passionate idea of creating a wide-coverage, immersive, multi-directional lighting fixture, specially designed to make the show in mid-size venues, from 1000 to 5000 people.
