Peru – Moving heads from PR Lighting have been out in force at a number of high profile events in the Peruvian capital of Lima, reports Julio Vidal, general manager of Layset, the manufacturer’s territorial distributor.
With bases in Peru and La Paz (Bolivia) the stage lighting specialists have enjoyed a particularly busy Autumn thanks to their rental company partner, Cocolight Productions,

This was followed by Reunión de Sonidistas, Luminotécnicos y Afines at Discoteca Habana, the Latin Salsa club in Lima. This gave Layset an opportunity to meet lighting directors and sound engineers and present new sound, lighting and special FX from their distributed brands. In the case of PR Lighting this included two of the mini XLed 2007 Beam and two of the fully-featured XLed 250 LED spots.
