Prolight + Sound proves storming success for Philips and partners
Germany – Philips has secured yet another successful year at Frankfurt's Prolight + Sound trade show. The company teamed up with its European partners to launch a wide range of industry-anticipated new products from its entertainment lighting brands, including the Vari-Lite VL4000 BeamWash, Strand Lighting 500ML console and an array of innovative Showline luminaires.
A dedicated Philips Vari-Lite booth was situated in the Lightpower village, where the VL4000 Spot and brand new VL4000 BeamWash were product highlights. The VL4000 BeamWash combines stunning wash capabilities with intense beam functionality and the ability to produce a powerful column of light, offering end users a myriad of creative possibilities.
"The new Vari-Lite VL4000 BeamWash gained much attention and a lot of praise from designers at Prolight + Sound," says Bjoern Gaentzsch, product manager for marketing and public relations at Lightpower. "Our customers were very happy with the fact that Vari-Lite has again developed a true masterpiece."
Alongside the Vari-Lite stand, Philips supported partner companies Feiner Lichttechnik and Cast. Cast hosted the launch of three brand new Showline products: the SL PUNCHLITE 200, the SL STRIP 10IP and the SL BEAM 300FX.
The IP65 rated, decidedly flexible, high output SL PUNCHLITE 200 delivers a powerful, blended beam and features an impressive motorized zoom range of 8°-47°enabling designers to pinpoint performers with a narrow shaft of light or flood a wide area with a powerful colour wash.
The SL STRIP 10IP – also rated for outdoor entertainment applications – delivers strong, blended washes of colour that emulate the traditional halogen strip light effects.
Both the SL PUNCHLITE 200 and the SL BEAM 300FX work as a beam or a wash luminaire, however the SL BEAM 300FX is also equipped with a dual rotating front lens and effects wheel, offering designers a plethora of different looks.
Both Cast and Feiner Lichttechnik also launched the brand new and intuitive Strand Lighting 500ML lighting control console on stand.
"The Strand Lighting 500ML console was a really big success," says Gerhard Feiner, managing director of Feiner Lichttechnik. "It's tailored for use on small to medium-sized shows and is a great value for money product, so there was a high level of interest in the console from visitors to our stand."
Philips EMEA general manager Grant Bales-Smith comments: "This year's Prolight + Sound was a fantastic success. The energy at the show was great with lots of positive responses to our new products. We'd again like to thank our valued partners Lightpower, Feiner Lichttechnik and Cast for their support and brilliant on-stand presentations."
