White Light to Showcase Lighting, Effects, and Rigging Exclusives at PLASA Focus: Leeds

White Light returns to the Royal Armouries in Leeds this month, exhibiting at the annual Plasa Focus exhibition April 30 – May 01. Visitors will find White Light exclusive products including lighting, effects, and rigging in both show venues – on stand NA2 in New Dock Hall and on stand RA-C4 in the Royal Armouries Museum.

Stand NA2 will feature products from Arkaos, Altman, Chromlech, Interactive Technologies, James Thomas, JB Lighting, Look Solutions, and LSC Lighting. Products from CITC, Coemar, Core Lighting, Galaxia Electronics, PR Lighting. Robert Juliat, and Wireless Solution will appear on stand RA-C4. White Light Sales and Hire staff will be on hand throughout the show, to answer questions and offer advice about your venue, project, or production.

Two new White Light exclusives – the CORE Lighting ColourPoint and the James Thomas Engineering JT30 truss system – will make their UK debut at the show. The ColourPoint, a new lightweight, low-cost LED uplighter, is the latest innovation from CORE Lighting. The UK manufacturer is known for its range of battery-powered, wirelessly controlled LED lighting fixtures designed for instant illumination anywhere - events, parties, outdoor venues, and architectural lighting. On the White Light stand the ColourPoint joins the CORE Theatre Worklight, a mains-dimmable LED work light for theatre task lighting.

The James Thomas JT30 truss system, also appearing for the first time in the UK, will form the structure of the White Light stand. The new JT30 system, developed with permanent installations in mind, features unisex fork connections, tapered fork holes, and adjustable joints. With these features, technicians can make connections quicker and easier and alter the shape of the truss with simple adjustments, making for a truly versatile truss system,

Also on the White Light stands, visitors will find the latest in LED lighting technology. On display from US manufacturer Altman Lighting will be the LED SpectraCyc fixture (previously seen in the Broadway production of Spiderman) and the ME3, a high-efficiency 25 watt LED ellipsoidal fixture with 20-40 degree zoom lens.

White Light staff will demo the Coemar LEDko P range of LED profiles as well as two LED units from French manufacturer Robert Juliat – the 75 watt LED TIBO multi-zoom and the powerful 150 watt ZEP LED profile.

The Elidy, Chromlech’s unique sculptural LED panel, will also be on display to visitors. The unit combines high-output warm-white LEDs with custom optics that generate extremely narrow beams of light, giving a directional output that far exceeds the intensity of standard LED screens.

New from Galaxia Electronics is the KLA1X1A with on board control, which maintains minimum CRI index of 90 under the colour temperature range of 2700~6500K to achieve ideal colouring. KLA600R will be back on display. This LED softlight is characterised by high colour rendering. A modern studio lighting fixture, it displays uniform lighting with minimised glare and flicker free operation.

In addition to the lighting and rigging equipment on the White Light stands, visitors will also find eye catching effects systems from CITC and Look Solutions. CITC’s powerful Little Blizzard snow machine will be on show as well as the Unique 2.1 hazer and Tiny FX fogger from Look Solutions. Show visitors will also be treated to video effects from Arkaos, utilising the Arkaos Stage Server media server and Media Master Pro software.

For those looking to see moving lights, White Light will display JB Lighting’s A8 LED colour-mixing washlight and A12 Tunable White LED washlight - well suited for events, multi-use venues, and concert touring production. White Light will also showcase movers from PR Lighting – the XLED 250 Spot and XR200 Beam.
