The Multiwall © GII-HS3049 offers a cost-efficient alternative to the Multiwall © GII-HS5062 when standard RGB colour mixing is sufficient. This makes the Multiwall © GII-HS3049 a default choice where a colour-changing linear light source with superior output and long-term reliability is needed. It features a new unique cooling technology, which keeps the 49W-LED panel at appropriate working temperature, and hence promises extended lifetime.

The elliptical dispersion angle makes this unit specifically suitable for wall washing, for which the user can easily convert the unit between indoor (connectors) and outdoor version (PG cable glands).

Programming for the light show was created on a grandMA2 from MA Lighting and recorded and stored on a miniSTORE 3 from ELC (Professional Lighting Equipment Solutions).

The miniSTORE 3 is a DMX playback recorder that can record and playback DMX streams like a tape recorder. All lighting changes, fades and effects for up to 512 channels on a single DMX line are recorded using 4GB flash memory in real time and can be played back exactly as originally performed.

The recording time can vary from hours to days. It is ideal for automating stand-alone shows, such as retail and exhibition displays, including moving light effects, and includes options to start or loop the playback at power-on or with a contact closure.

Back2Business Oman 2015 With Bright Lights Trading


Last year was the first Back2Business Oman networking event to take place in Muscat. It was such a success that there is to be a second edition on 20th January this year which its organisers promise will be even bigger and better than last year.

Bright Lights Trading LLC has, once again, been approved to provide all the technical support for the AV requirements during the evening and plans are well under way to provide even more exciting features than last year.

Over 450 government dignitaries, ambassadors, business owners, investors and budding entrepreneurs attended last year and all concurred that the event was a huge success. During the unique occasion, at The Grand Hyatt Hotel, many new business relationships were formed between individuals who represented a diverse set of industries and services.

As last year was such a success it is advised that those wishing to attend this year obtain their tickets as soon as possible. Tickets are priced, if purchased in advance, at 25 OMR or 30 OMR if purchased on the evening.

This January all attendees will have the ideal opportunity to reach fellow representatives from small to large companies with the potential to meet new clients, investors and business partners from across The Sultanate and the GCC.

The evening will not be all business as refreshments will be provided by The Hyatt and there will be entertainment, raffles and great giveaways.

Back2Business Oman is organised by representatives of some of the business councils in Oman. These councils are the British Business Forum, The Oman American Business Council, The European Business Persons Group and The Australian Business Group in Oman.

The organising committee is formed by Maggie Jeans who is best known for the sterling work she has done as the co-ordinator of the British Business Forum for the past 10 years, Garry Friend (General Manager of the Grand Hyatt), Nicolina Becx of EBPG, Galina Prokhina (Corporate Coordinator at Oman American Business Council), Maurizio Monte (founder of the Public Relations Consultancy MPiRE) and Katrina Hunt who represents the Australian Business Group Oman.

Sponsors for Back2Business Oman 2015 include many from last year and are The Bank of Beirut, Sohar Port & Free Zone, Swiss Air, Grand Hyatt Muscat, Muscat Guide, Mazoon and Icon.

Mr Ramy Zambarakji, the Managing Director of Bank of Beirut in Oman said “Our renewed partnership with Back2Business is enabling us to demonstrate our dedication to the community and it is a golden chance for us to more deeply engage hundreds of business professionals who are searching for new business opportunities as well as guidance and support.”

To reserve your place at this exciting second Back2Business Oman, or if you have any questions, email enquiries@back2businessoman.com and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Audio Upgrade In Grand Hyatt Hotel Entertainment Venues

C.Series.Lab.gruppen.BrightLights. Muscat


Bright Lights Trading LLC is the exclusive distributor in Oman for Lab.gruppen and they recently supplied and installed the C Series multi-channel power amplifiers during an extensive audio upgrade in the in-house entertainment venues at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Muscat.

The Grand Hyatt boasts some of the hottest nightspots in Oman with Club Safari, Copacabana and the grand Afrah Ballroom.  Bright Lights has been involved in past refurbishments and long term regular maintenance of these venues as well as The Habana Sports Bar.


Club Safari is a three-level venue that offers a fun and relaxed atmosphere where the resident DJ can be heard playing until the early hours of the morning and here Bright Lights installed a powerful four-channel Lab.gruppen C 68:4 to run the main stage PA.

The system comprises two 18-inch subs and two 12-inch mid-high cabinets from Ohm, while the stage monitor system runs-off an eight-channel C 20:8X powering six 12-inch Ohm wedges – the remaining channels power the in-fill surround speakers.


Billed as Muscat’s premier nightclub, Copacabana opens until late and is the ideal venue for party goers who want to listen to the latest club tracks and dance until the early hours in style.

Copacabana was the second venue to benefit from Bright Lights’ Lab.gruppen upgrade and, like Club Safari, a C 68:4 is the workhorse behind the main system, but in this instance the mid-high section is comprised of four 12-inch loudspeakers.

A further four-channel C 28:4 powers the two by 700W DJ monitor system, with the remaining channels driving the delayed surround sound system.

The Afrah Ballroom  hosts Muscat´s premier events, dinners, banquets and weddings and has been equipped with two C 68:4 power amplifiers, which drive a total of 32 Ohm BR6 250W speakers across four separate zones.


Bright Lights’ owner Mr Sabri Al-Busaidi said that Lab.gruppen’s C Series multi-channel power amplifiers range proved to be the ideal choice to meet the Grand Hyatt Muscat’s power requirements.

“I am delivering more power with better sound quality, while using only a fraction of the total number of units than what was previously the case; so I’m saving on space, time and money,” said Mr Al-Busaidi.
