Strobes and Blinders

The most dynamic shows require the most dynamic lighting

Matrix Blinder

Our  5×5 matrix blinder has an arrangement of 25 lenses. This means an unlimited amount of matrix effects, letters, and numbers can be produced. Each of the 25 3W LEDs can be individually controlled via DMX.  Also included are some great internal automatic programs.


Our stock of SGM revolutionary new LED strobes mean we can deliver the same output as conventional strobes from one fifth of the power.

Experience the extreme luminous output of nearly 3,000 pure white LEDs placed into three individually controllable LED segments. The X-5 makes it possi­ble to create unique effects never delivered before by a strobe.

The X-5 is a lightweight, compact and ultra-high performance LED strobe with an exceptionally low power consumption of only 4 Amps. The X-5 is a robust, state of the art LED fixture providing an alternative to traditional strobe.

Martin Atomic 3000

The workhorse of the strobe world and it might be the best stroboscope ever made. The Martin 3000 DMX is a very versatile stroboscope that can be fully controlled via DMX. This strobe is capable of flashing at such a high speed that the human eye will register the flashes as a continuous light beam. This means the strobe can also be used as a blinder. The strobe’s lamp has a power capacity of 3,000 watts and an impressive colour temperature of 5,600 K

The Grand Hall

We were approached to provide the sound, lighting and entertainment for an exclusive wedding at The Grand Hall Bedford late 2017. The client had exacting requirements on the lighting and visual impact of the venue. The majority of the event would be taking place in the dull mid winter light and early sunset. We opted for static deep blues on our pixel battens to light the Victorian ceiling with areas highlighted with our HEX LED fixtures to add detail. Tables where spotted with a selection of white and filtered blue Par36. We were then able to keep overall light levels in the room down, whilst still providing adequate levels for the wedding breakfast. JHA Sharpie beams where used to bolster light levels as the evening went on and provided a dynamic light show for the evening entertainment.

Audio for the entire day was taken care of by a full Void Acoustics Air Motion system. Guests commented on the exceptional sound quality in the vast open space. All this whilst fitting in the décor of the venue. Microphones for speeches and announcements were provided as well as background music through the day.

Finally a starlit LED dancefloor was added behind the top table with the wedding cake centre stage as a focal point before the dancing.

Evening DJ duties were provided by the superb VJ Gary Bamford (Facebook VJ Gary)
