U.K.-based specialist lighting manufacturer i-Pix has announced that Florida-based Inner Circle Distribution (ICD) as its exclusive distributor in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and South America for its new db1 video/beam effect light-source.
The db1 was launched in April this year. i-Pix’ Chris Ewington explains that he specifically sought an independent and specialist distribution company to represent the brand and support and promote i-Pix products and concepts.
“I looked at many options and researched extensively before choosing to partner with ICD,” explained Chris. “I didn’t want a large company with lots of brands on-board, I wanted a focussed and dedicated operation with individuals passionate about the industry that would give the Db1 the attention it deserves and share the zeal for invention that characterises i-Pix.”
Ewington also highlights that ICD is based in Sunrise, FL, near Miami and at the heart of the EDM music action which is “a big market that is always keen to embrace new visual technologies.” It is also one of the genres for which the hybrid db1 is an ideal choice as a combination lighting / video product.
Craig Singer of ICD comments, “The Db1 is a fantastic idea, a genuinely new product that can’t be classified as ‘just’ a lighting fixture or a ‘just’ a video screen … it has effectively created its own ‘Screen Beam’ category of fixture. There’s absolutely nothing like it in the world of entertainment technology, and we are hugely excited to be involved with Chris and i-Pix on this project.”
