Total Production Adds Elation Snipers And Cuepix Blinders To Inventory

June 2015

Austrian-based rental and production company has added Elation’s award-winning Sniper multi-effect light as well as Elation Cuepix WW blinders to its rental inventory.

“We chose to stock the Sniper because we are always looking for new effects as our aim is to offer our clients something unique that has never been seen or done before,” stated Martin Kames, owner of the company that he founded in 2009. “In general, we are very skeptical when buying new gear. Elation however offers several innovative ideas which we can relate to while maintaining reasonable pricing.”

The Sniper, a hybrid beam, scanner, and laser simulator in one, is striking a chord with lighting designers and rental companies who seek a creative new tool to work with. It won a PLASA Award for Innovation last year and is finding service on a growing number of shows and events, as well as in club environments. Powered by the new 132W Philips MSD Platinum 2R lamp with a 6,000 hour average lifetime, the Sniper delivers an intense output while giving designers 14 dichroic colours and 17 static gobos to choose from.

“The fact that the Sniper looks very much like a laser but doesn’t involve all the tedious permits and paperwork is unbeatable,” Nadine Horitani stated, head of Events & Sales at “The price was reasonable as well since we always need a high quantity to provide great shows and the low power consumption convinced us as well. All in all, it is a very versatile and strong product.” will have the Snipers out on several productions this summer including Kool Savas at Germany’s Splash Festival, Heaven Shall Burn at the Greenfield Festival in Switzerland, and Heaven Shall Burn at the With Full Force Festival, also in Germany. is based in Vienna, Austria, with branches in Rochester, New York, and Brisbane, Australia. With a large array of equipment in stock, as well as a fleet of transport vehicles and an experienced team at the ready, they are able to offer complete packages for events of all sizes. “Since we function as a one-stop shop for gear, transport, and manpower, we can work with far greater flexibility and thus provide better results than bigger companies in our field while always maintaining our own high quality standards,” Martin Kames concluded.
