UK – After a highly successful year with their new product portfolio, notably on the London West End stage, GLP’s inventive solutions continue to evolve, as will be evidenced at this year’s PLASA Show (London Olympia, 18th - 20th September).

Visitors to its stand (#E60) will see the new GT-1 hybrid, which has been causing such a stir on the international circuit in 2016, although this will be its first appearance at the London show.

Functioning as both a spot and a beam the combination of a high powered 470W discharge lamp and advanced optical system has resulted in a high performance beam with an enormous 22:1 ratio zoom range (from 2.5° to 55°).

Easy to accommodate, with its unique baseless design, the GT-1 also features built-in wireless DMX control, full 16-bit pan and tilt movement, full range dimming and shuttering capability, an in-built battery for fixture setup, an auto-sensing power supply and a low weight of just 25kg.

Another major breakthrough is the upgrading of their tiny X4 Atom, first previewed at last year’s PLASA Show. This non-moving LED fixture has now been supercharged with a new 30W lamp source to increase the output and performance.

States GLP Inc president Mark Ravenhill: “This is a really cool upgrade to a great fixture. We have not only managed to re-engineer the product without affecting the other popular features but also intend to upgrade all the existing fixtures in the market free of charge.”

The X4 Atom itself offers an impressive 9:1 zoom ratio (3.5°-34°), but significantly it is also IP65 rated so it can be used outdoors, running from an external PSU / data box.
