GLP JDC2 IP now available from CGS Dry Hire

GLP’s new weatherproof, graphics-capable hybrid strobe available on the German market for the first time

CGS Dry Hire is one of the first professional event technology rental companies in the world to add the brand-new GLP JDC2 IP hybrid strobe to its inventory. Two hundred pieces of the innovative fixture, a further development of the industry standard JDC1, are now available for dry hire from CGS.

The JDC2 IP was enthusiastically received by the international audiences at the LDI Show in Las Vegas and ISE in Barcelona, and other users were able to experience the performance and enormous creative potential of the significantly larger and more powerful successor at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt in mid-March.

The new JDC2 IP features IP65 housing, larger plate, higher performance, better visibility, and a wealth of breathtaking digital graphic effects, thanks to the integrated dual-cortex CPU – plus everything that users worldwide love about the JDC1.

Following the product launch and initial market reaction, it quickly became clear to CGS Dry Hire that the JDC2 IP was a must-have. The devices were delivered by GLP in mid-March, so they would be available immediately for the approaching 2024 outdoor season.

Josef Reichenstetter, CGS’s head of lighting and sound technology, says: “The predecessor of the JDC2 IP was an enormously successful product that is still in great demand today. Therefore, as a further development of the JDC1, we see a correspondingly high market demand for the JDC2 IP. The design in the IP65 housing in particular is an enormous advantage over its predecessor. Not only does this multiply the possible uses of the devices, It also means significantly less work for us as dry hirers, due to the reduced need for cleaning and maintenance; this, in turn, reduces our costs.”

Oliver Schwendke, GLP key account director, adds: “We were able to deliver the first JDC2 IP to CGS before the start of the open-air season and are now looking forward to seeing the first lighting designers unleash the incredible creative power of the devices.”
