customer of Barbizon's for many years

The new SBS World News studio

LED reviews at their facilities updating
the fixtures and control in many of
their other studios. The SBS World

another such project and one
where we again recommended
ARRI lighting solutions."
With Barbizon meeting all of
SBS' technical requirements
the broadcaster purchased
multiple ARRI SkyPanel lights
and fixtures including their
S120-C Black Pole Op, S60-C
Black Pole Op and S30-C Black

the host desk.
