Follow-Me BV remote follow-spot and auto tracking solutions, are delighted to announce the Partnership with SeeSound S.L. with marketing and sales distribution of the Follow-Me systems for the Spanish market.


The two companies first came in contact when Isaías (Sasi) García, Product Manager for Lighting, Video and Rigging, at SeeSound was searching for the right auto tracking solution for a customers project. Follow-Me’s Zoë Castle realised the opportunity that working with SeeSound might bring to Follow-Me: “we are excited to be partnering with SeeSound especially recognising their extensive knowledge, capabilities and product range, which is perfectly enhanced by the addition of Follow-Me tracking solutions”.


Established in 2004 by Director General Nacho Alberdi, SeeSound is a company driven to excel for their customers requirements. Their success comes from recognising the importance of offering the market what they do best: service, technical support and welcoming, friendly business, accompanied by a great portfolio of brands.

SeeSound has all the necessary elements to offer customers the "global solution" for their projects. SeeSound is backed by their experience, the latest technology and the support of more than 40 leading brands in the audio, video, rigging and professional lighting sector. Nacho enthuses about bringing Follow-Me into his company: “with Follow-Me we are bringing a wonderful solution for our customers projects where manual and or auto tracking is required. My team and I are looking forward to working with the Follow-Me team. A product range like Follow-Me unites, in a single brand what SeeSound’s DNA represents: to provide solutions for the integration, broadcast and theatre markets and large format events such as festivals, concerts, touring and corporate events, offering scalable solutions such as manual, automatic and hybrid tracking control”.


Based in The Netherlands, Follow-Me BV is the manufacturer of the Follow-Me 3D systems: the TWO and SIX control systems for remote follow-spot operation and the auto tracking add-on. Follow-Me 3D gives you full independence and creative flexibility on your projects with the follow spot operation.  It is scalable and can track from 1 to 6 performers with unlimited fixtures from a single Follow-Me system.  Follow-Me 3D is fixture independent: it can control any manufacturers brand of moving light via Art-Net, sACN & PSN to integrate with motion control.


Follow-Me 3D is a hybrid system where the scalability is not only referring to increasing the number of performers with the TWO or SIX tracking solutions, but it is also carried through with manual tracking being upgraded to the full hybrid auto tracking system if and when required. The Follow-Me auto tracking add-on allows operators to switch seamlessly between manual and auto tracking.  This allows for both manual and auto tracking methods to be used simultaneously and as redundancy, with a live video feed of the performance area through the Follow-Me system’s camera. 


Follow-Me’s Marc van der Wel concurs with Nacho sighting the wide range of applications that Follow-Me is currently used on; from international tours with artists such as Genesis to TV shows like The Masked Singer, theatrical productions, EXPO 2021 Dubai, theme parks… Noting the integration of the OSC protocol for immersive audio applications within Follow-Me 3D, Zoë states “we are excited to be partnering with SeeSound especially recognising their extensive knowledge, capabilities and product range in supporting customers with immersive installation projects. Combined, Follow-Me and SeeSound bring a wealth of technical knowledge, structure, enthusiasm and market experience to the Spanish market. This is an ideal partnership, where our Spanish customers can be secure in their specification and usage of the Follow-Me 3D systems for manual and automated tracking”.
