Leica DISTO™ Widget Measures Up at ABTT Awards

30th June 2010

AC-ET‘s Rigging division received the ABTT Theatre Show’s ‘Widget of the Year Award’ on behalf of Leica Geosystems for their DISTO™ D5 handheld laser distance meter.

Held at The Royal Horticultural Halls during this year’s ABTT Theatre Show, the annual awards aim to encourage high standards in design across various theatrical equipment product categories.

The innovative Leica DISTO™ range of hand-held laser distance meters’ provide quick, easy and precise measuring of distances, areas and volumes with the press of a button.

The DISTO™ D5 was the measure that really caught the judges’ eye. The unit features a measuring range of up to 200 metres with an accuracy of ± 1.0mm, a tilt sensor that measure angles up to 45°, Pythagoras functions and a robust, water resistant (IP54) design.

The real outstanding feature of the D5 is the ability to measure outdoors even in glaring sunlight thanks to the digital pointfinder, which utilises a high-resolution 2.4” colour TFT display with 4x zoom.

Adam Beaumont, Sales Manager of AC-ET’s Rigging division, commented: “The Leica DISTO™ D5 laser distance measuring tool is a must have for anyone who needs to take really accurate measurements. The colour zoom display makes it ideal for entertainment work, particularly in festival season when people are working outdoors. Some of the other features are ideally suited to our industry and the price is affordable too.”

In 2009, AC-ET’s Rigging division picked up the same award on behalf of Touring Custom Products (TCP) for their Bunka Stand, which the company distributes exclusively on a worldwide basis.
