AVW-TELAV Acquires Inventory of Clay Paky GlowUp Fixtures

AVW-TELAV Audio Visual Solutions, the technologically innovative, full-service presentation technology and staging solutions provider with state-of-the-art inventory in every province and all major cities coast to coast, has acquired Clay Paky GlowUp fixtures from A.C.T Lighting Canada Inc.

GlowUp is a portable, battery-powered luminaire based on durable, high-power LEDs for years of energy-efficient service. Power is stored in a rechargeable, lightweight lithium battery making the fixture easy to carry; it can be recharged 2,000 times without suffering from ‘memory’ or capacity loss. The battery eliminates the logistical headache of running cable at events, dramatically reducing set up time while saving money and improving safety. In addition, GlowUp is fully programmable allowing users to select scenes from a library containing dozens of suggested colors and a number of pre-programmed color-changing sequences.

AVW-TELAV placed half of its GlowUp inventory in its Vancouver office and split the other half between itsoffices in Toronto and Montreal.

“We were looking for something battery-powered,” says AVW-TELAV lighting director Daniel Sonenberg. “We wanted something to use in hotels where power and cable are not options and where we typically have a short time for set up. We did product comparisons among multiple brands and suppliers, and GlowUp had the best combination of intensity and low profile.

“If it wasn’t for A.C.T Lighting, I wouldn’t have known that GlowUp exists,” he points out. “Andrew Beck, general manager of A.C.T Lighting Canada, suggested them to me and gave me a demo unit to test. Now that we have received our own units, I’m doing a lot of demos for venues and clients.”

Sonenberg expects that AVW-TELAV customers will use GlowUp for pre-event coverage and galas. “They can make it look like guests are entering an event before they get to the event – like a red carpet,” he says. “As soon as guests arrive, they know they’re someplace special. GlowUp is usable outdoors, so that’s a huge plus. I’m a very big fan of wireless control, and GlowUp has it.”

Sonenberg is not only delighted to have discovered Clay Paky GlowUp but also pleased with A.C.T Lighting Canada’s renowned customer service. “Andrew Beck has been phenomenal in supporting us,” he reports.

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, comments, “Our GlowUps are great fixtures and it sounds like AVW-TELAV is putting them to great use. We look forward to hearing about some of the events they help to highlight.”

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky.
