Philips Lighting to showcase industry-leading stage lighting at ABTT Theatre Show 2016

UK Philips Lighting announces its entertainment division will be at the ABTT Theatre Show 2016 between the 22nd and 23rd June on stand A11, showcasing the latest industry-leading stage lighting and control from Philips Strand Lighting, Philips Selecon and Showline.

On display from Strand Lighting will be the latest addition to its range of control tools – the highly intuitive Philips Strand 500ML lighting control console, alongside the NEO console.

Designed to control dimmers, LED fixtures and moving lights, the Philips Strand 500ML's user interface is quick and easy to navigate and provides designers and programmers with 24 faders, each of which may be used as a master, submaster or playback.

Lighting designer Mark Wynn-Edwards, whose portfolio includes Lamb and Jamiroquai, comments that he is highly impressed with the Philips Strand 500ML: "I have been using the Philips Strand 500ML for a while now on a broad range of projects," he explains. "It's understated yet powerful and is future-proofed with regular system updates. With every update it gets more and more multi-featured, closing the gap between it and the larger, more advanced desks on the market.

"It's incredibly versatile and offers hands-on features which are great for busking and building an environment that is exactly tailored for the job in hand. Each playback can be configured and it even talks Art-Net and MIDI for show control."

Also, the newly launched Philips Showline SL HYDRUS 350 will be on stand and available for demo. A powerful yet compact effects light, the Philips SL HYDRUS 350 is ideal for large-scale musicals and contemporary opera.

Visitors to ABTT will also be able to learn more about the fantastic new benefits of the refreshed Philips Selecon LED PLprofile1 and PLprofile4 MKII. The reinvigorated luminaires now offer boosted light output, superior colour consistency and brilliant beam quality. The in-built LED source technology means it is no longer necessary to change lamps or colour filters. In addition, power consumption is minimised, making the PLprofile1 and PLprofile4 ideal luminaires for pop-up theatre venues.

The Philips Selecon RAMA LED Fresnel, which combines the superior control and light quality of a Philips Selecon Fresnel with an integrated LED optical design, will also be on stand.

The ABTT Theatre Show takes place at Alexandra Palace between the 22nd and 23rd June 2016. Philips Entertainment can be found on stand A11.
