USA – Console and automated lighting manufacturer High End Systems will once again be exhibiting their products at the 2016 LDI trade show in Las Vegas, held 21st - 23rd October, and cordially invite attendees to visit them on Booth #2215. Key personnel from the company’s executive, sales and engineering departments will be on hand at the show to meet with customers, LDs and programmers. In addition to displaying their Hog 4 range of lighting consoles, the company is introducing several new products in their SolaRange and FX lines of LED based automated luminaires. With their iconic tagline ’WE ARE LED’, High End is revolutionising the industry with these latest products.
Unveiled at the recent PLASA show, the SolaWash FX 2000 is the latest addition to the SolaRange family, joining the revolutionary SolaWash FX 1000 and SolaSpot 1000 launched earlier this year.
