Gemini Light Sound & Video Takes Delivery of Clay Paky Sharpy Wash Fixtures

Dallas-based Gemini Light Sound & Video has invested in 30 Clay Paky Sharpy Washes and plans to add more of the popular fixtures to its rental inventory. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky lighting in North America.

Gemini Light Sound & Video is an equipment rental and sales company and one of the largest dealer in the southwestern U.S. Gemini owns the area’s biggest inventory of conventional and moving lights, consoles, high-end audio systems, projectors and switchers.

“We got 30 Sharpy Washes in our first order and will have more coming – I can’t keep them in stock,” says Gemini accounts and project manager Jason Cain. “Their size, speed, color saturation and output are second to none. The Sharpy Wash is an all-around great light. No wonder it’s in such demand. We’re the first in the southwest to have them.”

Gemini used 18 Sharpy Washes on the recent National Cheerleaders Association’s High School National Championships at the Dallas Convention Center, which was covered by CBS Sports. “They were a good choice for that event,” says Cain who served as lighting designer for the show. “You could zoom them in and get a tight beam. You get that Sharpy feel but can also blow them out and soften them up to get a good white light.”

Gemini placed the Sharpy Washes upstage where they provided front light for the entry of the cheerleaders and back light for their performances. “We also used them for flash-and-trash,” Cain reports. “We got bouncing colors, pan and tilt, and strobing. It was great!” He notes that “the trim was at 42 feet, and at that distance they had plenty of power.”

Following the cheerleading championship Gemini deployed Sharpy Washes on a number of corporate events and at shows featuring Grammy Award-winner Lorde at the Southside Ballroom in Dallas and in Houston.

Cain praises A.C.T Lighting for its “amazing” customer service even though he really hasn’t had to take advantage of it. “I know they would do anything to support us, but at this point everything is working perfectly!” he reports.

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, commented, “Gemini Light and Sound is a great company that serves a great market. We look forward to a long and growing relationship them.”
