When TV Derana, Sri Lanka’s premier entertainment website channel, presented the seventh season of the talent programme, Little Star, in front of an invited audience at the giant Sugathadasha Indoor Stadium in Colombo, PR Lighting partner, The Lighthouse (Pvt) dressed the stage with a wide choice of the Chinese manufacturer’s fixtures.

This included 24 XS1200 Spot, six XL1200 Spot, 40 XR 200 Beam, 16 XR 230, four XR 330 and 40 units from the XLED Series. All were suspended from the lighting grid to create a dynamic visual right around the stadium.

According to lighting designer Dinusha (Chanaka) Perera these were ideal for TV with their its fast response and quiet operation. Having successfully undergone camera tests for colour temperature, etc they met all technical requirements.

While the powerful XS and XL Spot have become established fixtures in inventories across the world, more recent pieces such as the compact XR 200 Beam, with its powerful pencil beam from just a 189W Philips MSD Platinum 5R, has quickly become a real favourite with television shows as have other compact, high output fully-featured parallel beam fixtures, the XR230 and XR330. Meanwhile, the XLED range continues to expand, offering LDs a number of creative options.

According to Perera the production team was delighted with the dynamics created by the fixtures. “They were particularly impressed with the quality of colour mixing – and the fact that such was the speed of the lighting that it hit the cues every time.”
