Follow-Me is a cost effective Art-Net based calibration software package that utilizes moving lights as follow-spots. Where traditional methods of using FOH or truss mounted follow spots impose cost and rigging implications Follow-Me offers a cost saving, quick to implement alternative.
Not only can Follow-Me be used to follow one or more performers with multiple moving heads but individual fixture selection offers the additional functionality of preset positioning for solo’s and surprise performances.
Follow-Me offers a range of advantages over traditional follow spot usage. Lower labor costs, freedom in lamp positioning, improved follow-spot angles, eliminating kill seats, offering accurate timing for color bump cues, following performers with gobo effects or color chases. Follow-Me also solves weight issues on smaller roofs where typical truss seats Inc. operators are too heavy or deep to implement.
Follow-Me benefits lighting designers- technical producers and event planners anywhere performers require illumination and is easily implemented on touring productions, festival stages, TV studios and concert halls.
Follow-Me is available for rent, please contact us for purchase information.
