TSE AG chooses GLP impression X5 Bar 1000

TSE AG, the largest Berlin‐based full‐ service event technology provider, has placed a vote of confidence in GLP’s impression X5 Bar 1000 – by adding an LED tilt bar to its inventory for the first time.

The company was already looking for an LED bar as far back as 2019, but was slowed down by the pandemic.

“GLP’s impression X4 Bar was at the top of our list at that time,” remembers Marcel Fery, managing director of TSE AG. “When business really picked up again in 2022, it was already predicted that GLP would introduce a new generation to the market – and we were happy to wait for that. A tilt bar is now an industry standard in a service provider’s portfolio, so for us the question was not if, but when.”

Opening its account with 48 impression X5 Bar 1000, TSG AG is hoping for other rental companies to follow suit. “We assume that in addition to us and Complete Audio [which has also currently invested in the X5 Bar], other Berlin companies will follow suit, so that a very good rental portfolio should soon be available in the capital,” says Fery.

The impression X4 Bar first established itself as the global industry standard for LED bars with tilt functions – but the impression X5 Bar 1000 has now redefined it. The fixture has 18 powerful 40W white spectra LEDs, with excellent colour rendering. The new square lens design ensures maximum lumen efficiency, producing a never‐before‐ seen light curtain in the narrowest zoom range of just 3.5°, as well as an even and homogeneous colour distribution across the entire range, up to the widest wash of 60°.

As part of the new GLP X5 Series, the impression X5 Bar 1000 offers an extensive function and feature package, including selectable calibrated colour temperatures, a tungsten simulation channel, magenta/green correction, a virtual colour wheel and variable CTC, as well as layer effects with numerous dynamic pattern macros. The X5 Bar offers the usual rapid tilt movement, combined with the patented, seamless pixel pitch that GLP LED bars are famous for.

In addition to the very good colour mix of the impression X5 Bar, and the proven features that made the previous model so successful, the excellent availability of the product was another key factor for TSE AG, as Marcel Fery explains. “It was important for us to have the new bar available before the start of the season. And that has certainly worked!

“We see the product being versatile, and equally applicable to both rock’n’roll and industrial events,” he continues.

“The X5 Bar is well made and overall appears to be of very high quality – a top product that will definitely be well accepted on the market. The combination of manufacturing quality, colour mix, features and market acceptance make them the right choice for us in the tilt bar sector.”

In addition to the impression X5 Bars, the new JDC2 IP hybrid strobe also impressed the TSE AG team: “In fact, the first JDC2 IP order has already been placed,” confirms Fery.
