Nashville-based Elite Multimedia Productions (Elitemultimedia.com) has added Clay Paky Mythos and A.leda B-EYE K10 lighting fixtures and ChainMaster motors to its inventory. A.C.T Lighting, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky and ChainMaster products in North America.

Elite Multimedia provides AV and lighting equipment to the live staging and corporate markets. The company's talent and expertise bring clients' visions to life from design to installation.

"We're delighted that Elite Multimedia has expanded its inventory with equipment from Clay Paky and ChainMaster," says Brian Dowd, vice president of sales and marketing at A.C.T Lighting. "We have a strong relationship with Elite and are proud to partner with them again on their latest acquisitions."

Elite Multimedia has invested in Clay Paky Mythos fixtures, a new hybrid light that is a 470W spot and a beam light, and B-EYE K10 innovative LED-based moving lights.

"Adding them was a no brainer," says David Venus, director of marketing at Elite Multimedia. "Clay Paky makes quality lights that we can depend on for the tours, corporate events and one-off shows we do. It was really an easy choice because they hold up to the wear and tear of the schedules our clients have."

Venus says the additional fixtures are already earmarked for projects. "We have a good portion of the Mythos and B-EYEs headed out the door on Luke Bryan's Kick Up the Dust tour as well as on the road with Gary Allan."

Elite's head of lighting, Jason Jenkins, notes that the company was looking to grow its rigging inventory when A.C.T Lighting began distributing ChainMaster gear. "A.C.T distributes state-of-the-art products, and their customer service is second to none. So that made our decision simple," he says. "ChainMaster motors are well designed, clean and easy to service. They are built with entertainment in mind. We're ecstatic to add ChainMaster to our fleet and look forward to continuing our friendship with A.C.T."

Germany-based ChainMaster is a world leader in developing and producing lifting equipment for the events and entertainment industries. The company offers chain hoists and trolleys for moving elements; load sensors and evaluation units; the XYZ control system; and a wide array of accessories, including shackles, round slings, girder clamps, cables, hooks, and flight cases. ChainMaster equipment has been used at the Olympics, Eurovision Song Contest, and at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

"Working with A.C.T is always a great experience," says Venus. "We trust the brands they represent, and they always deliver great customer service."
