Sydney Theatre is a state of the art home for the best Australian and international performing arts.
Since many of their recent productions have been specifying next generation lighting consoles such as ETC EOS, Head of Lighting Andrew Tompkins decided it was time to upgrade. After testing various consoles the undisputed winner was the ETC EOS lighting console range.
He remarked that the EOS lighting consoles provide a powerful set of lighting tools to meet the expectations of today’s designers, while providing a familiar syntax for operators moving up from the old Strand consoles.
Deputy Head of Lighting and Board Operator Sophie Kurylowicz agrees. She was thrown into the deep end last year with an incoming show on the ION, and after a little training it just felt right to her.
Herkes Professional Lighting have supplied Sydney Theatre with a package consisting of EOS lighting consoles, ION, remote processor, remote video interface and Pathport data distribution, including the first Pathport Octo in the country.
Phil Dunesky from Herkes said that it was a pleasure to assist Andrew and his team at Sydney Theatre with these upgrades. And through their relationship with Jands , Herkes were able to offer very keen pricing and back up, and they look forward to representing this range into the future.
