Litecom is a top Danish lighting, video and automation rental and production
specialist headquartered just outside of Copenhagen in a modern industrial building
that has been designed to both be functional and look cool, providing an invigorating
The company, headed by Rasmus Sorensen, has just invested in Robe BMFL Blades,
DL4S Profiles and DL4F Wash luminaires which have joined the 80 Pointes already in
their rental inventory, as the general demand for Robe fixtures in Scandinavia is
Litecom was founded by Sorensen, his brother Morten and his father Erik in 2000
and now has 35 full time employees, a pool of regular freelance talent, a large
inventory of equipment with state-of-the-art drawing and visualisation facilities, an
expansive warehouse, a policy of continuous investment in current technologies and
an operation brimming with ideas and exciting future plans.
It currently also has bases in Sweden, Germany, Georgia and the Ukraine, and very
much sees its future business in a pan European context. Litecom, in conjunction
with its Swedish office, supplied lighting for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in
Stockholm which included 94 x BMFLs specified by Lighting designer Fredrik
Over the years Litecom has dealt with several leading moving light brands, and
Robe came on to their radar in particular after the launch of the Pointe in 2013,
then with the original DL series of LED luminaires specifically designed for theatre
and of course … the BMFL.
They are also currently engaged in developing a proprietary follow stop style
remote control system which is based around a BMFL Blade as the luminaire. They
chose the fixture because of its very “organic’ movement, the real-time speed of its
functions and the precision. With all the Lee colours listed on a macro, using it in a
rock “n’ roll show or as a TV special makes it very simple to change colours and
match or contrast to the general lighting via the buttons on their remote system.
There are high expectations for the BMFL and DL4S, and in particular a lot of
excitement related to the longevity of the LED module compared to discharge
fixtures and the cost of regular re-lamps
Litecom offers several additional / related services as well as equipment rental, and
these include production planning and production presentation and management,
giving the ability to take on all aspects of an event if required, and with it, lots of
added value over and above just being an equipment house.
Sorensen sees “design, infrastructure and people’ as key elements in promoting
and growing the business in addition to having the most flexible equipment solutions
and the ability to think out-of-the-box!
