The potential is massive – from theatres to TV productions, corporate events and concert tours of all sizes and styles”.Apart from a growing number of shows and productions in South Africa, power consumption and load-shedding is an omnipresent issue, so anything that can help reduce this and simultaneously minimise the carbon footprint of events is a big bonus,i-Pix Sales & Marketing Manager Tony Cameron comments, “We’re delighted to be working with DWR – well known for their proactive, energetic and very personal approach, which mirrors the way we like to work at i-Pix.
