Claypaky and ADB took part together at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the largest event devoted to integrated audio-video systems in the world. The four-day annual event took place at RAI Amsterdam in the Netherlands from 6 to 9 February.
The two companies are part of the international Osram group and are pursuing a common design programme for the development of stage lighting products featuring advanced technology and performance, while maintaining the peculiarities of each brand.
Pio Nahum, Claypaky CEO said: “Claypaky and ADB together offer one of the most complete packages in today’s entertainment technology industry, including static and moving-head lights with LED, halogen or discharge lamps, as well as lighting control equipment, and dimming and networking systems. It is a range of complete solutions for any project: television studios and theatres of all sizes, corporate events, congress halls, multi-purpose spaces, retail environments, places of worship, cruisers and theme parks. The products offered by the two brands are perfectly complementary and cover the whole spectrum of needs of people who work in the lighting field. For this reason, we deemed it essential to take part with a joint booth at an exhibition devoted to system integration”.
