Ministry of Sound realized long ago that lighting has a positive draw, and the more impressive the better. The famed club brand is continually improving their offer for their customers, while striving to look better than any other nightclub. So when Alex Barrand, Technical Manager at Ministry of Sound in London, decided it was time to invest in a new laser system that would give the venue even more ‘wow’ factor, he turned to Martin’s RGB Laser 1.6™.
“The Martin laser is one of the best units on the market,” he states. “I like the fact that it can run DMX, also from a laptop, and I like the small size of the unit.”
Two Martin RGB 1.6 lasers are located on each side of the DJ booth in Ministry’s infamous Box, where DJ’s from around the world reign supreme over clubland’s trendiest clientele.
The RGB Laser 1.6 is a compact and lightweight Class 4 laser with deep saturated colors and true whites, and an impressive spread angle of 80 x 80 degrees. It also features simple plug-and-play operation and hundreds of pre-installed effects.
And because MoS is more than a dance club – MoS also embodies a worldwide touring business that undertakes around 800 events each year including magazine photo shoots, TV commercial recordings, corporate presentations and product launches, live bands, film launch parties and more – the laser has use beyond the late night dance crowd.
Alex acknowledges Mark Buss of Martin UK who “has been very supportive with the whole process, and has always fixed any issues we have had.”
The RGB Laser 1.6 joins MoS London’s existing Martin rig of MAC moving heads, Martin effect lights and Jem smoke machines. Martin Professional products feature in all Ministry of Sound nightclub businesses worldwide.
