Philips Exhibits Creative Stage Luminaires at ABTT
Philips Entertainment's four premier brands, Showline, Vari-Lite, Selecon and Strand Lighting, are powering up to exhibit their latest LED luminaires and lighting control products ideal for theatre application at this year's ABTT (Orange Hall, Old Truman Brewery, Stand 123).
Following its UK début at PLASA Focus in Leeds, Philips Showline will be stunning visitors with its SL NITRO 510 LED-based strobe, delivering super bright, intense bursts of light and dynamic effects using over 1300 high-powered LEDs. Six unique zones of control allow ultimate flexibility while unique built in chases aid in creativity and simplicity. With over 68,000 lumens of output, the SL NITRO 510 rivals conventional strobes and retains dynamic looks whether washing a stage or pointing directly at an audience.
Sister company Philips Vari-Lite will be demonstrating the recently released Indy software for the VLX Wash luminaire, which enables individual control of the fixture's seven 120-watt RGBW LED engines. This facilitates a multitude of stunning looks and original chases to be programmed on the face of the luminaire, further enhancing the creative possibilities of the industry leading LED fixture.
Also on stand is the new PLCyc2 and PLprofile4 LED profile from Selecon. The PLCyc2 offers twin single source RGBW LED chips, which facilitate truly inventive colour mixing for stunning cyc and wash lighting effects. The new PLprofile4 LED luminaire further expands the PL lighting range and combines the same LED source technology with precision optical design. Four high-power, RGBW LED chips deliver endless colour options with exact beam control and pattern projections.
Finally Philips Strand Lighting will be exhibiting the versatile 250ML moving light control console which is an evolution of the popular Strand series 200 console. It features four encoders and an LCD display screen for quick and easy automated lighting and LED control making it ideal for smaller productions with a hybrid of lighting instruments.
"The 250ML is already proving itself to be an ideal lighting control solution for schools and colleges, multi purpose venues and smaller theatres," confirms Amber Tomlin, key account manager for Philips Entertainment UK. "We had a great response from customers and end users in Frankfurt and PLASA Focus and we're excited to have the console on stand for visitors to experience at ABTT."
"Philips leads the entertainment lighting industry in the design, development and manufacture of innovative, efficient and versatile theatre, rock and display luminaires," continues Martin Palmer, Philips Entertainment Product Manager EMEA. "As always we're delighted to take any opportunity to demonstrate the latest additions to our range of traditional tungsten and cutting edge LED fixtures alongside our ranges of automated luminaries, lighting control and distributed dimming products. It goes without saying that we are looking forward to welcoming old friends and new from the world of lighting to our stand at the ever popular, always convivial ABTT Show."
ABTT is on 12th & 13th June 2013 at The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London E1 6QL. www.abtttheatreshow.org.uk
