The SuperSport in Randburg is converting four of their studios to LED technology and
DWR Distribution has been awarded the supply and installation of the project.
The control will be with three MA dot2 consoles (two studios will be sharing), 136
QuartzColor Fresnels and 17 Philips Strand SoftLight 300S TV Panels. Nine Philips
Strand RelayRacks are to be installed to control the entire system.
“Improved power consumption and a reduction in maintenance costs, for example,
longer lamp life and fewer lamp changes, are the main reasons SuperSport has
decided to go this route,’ explained Kevin Stannett of DWR Distribution. “They are
going daylight on all four studios which basically means there is no need for gelling
old Tungsten fixtures. The SoftLights are fairly new to the industry and are amazing to
create a soft, even wash in studio. The dot2 is well-known in the industry for its user-
friendly ease of operation, making it very accessible in the studios, where there are
often various programmers utilising the consoles.’
