Altman Lighting heads to Fort Lauderdale for USITT in Booth 525

USA – On 15th March, when USITT opens the Stage Expo show doors inside the Broward County Convention Center, Altman Lighting will be on-hand to showcase its theatrical and architectural lighting innovations. Located in Booth 525, Altman will feature a highlight of the Chalice 70W LED downlight, the Gallery series of architectural solutions, the popular family of Spectra Cyc LED luminaires, the convection cooled PHX 150W LED profile and the mains dimmable Pegasus LED Fresnel, plus, a unique opportunity for prizes with the Altman LEGO Challenge.

The USITT Conference and Stage Expo has always been one of our favourite opportunities to enjoy being a part of the theatrical lighting industry,” said Nick Champion, Altman Lighting vice president of North American Sales. “By bringing together educators, students, professionals and manufacturers who are all dedicated to supporting the craft of live theatre, we are able to not only showcase our technology solutions, but also have a little fun as well with something like the Altman LEGO Challenge.”

Introduced for the first time at USITT, the Altman LEGO Challenge was created to give visitors at the show the opportunity to walk away with a prize that’s sure to improve their selfie and video game. By being the closest to guess the number of pieces, without going over, used to build the Altman LEGO display created by Champion, two lucky winners will be awarded a Smooth Q 3-Axis Motion Stabilizer for their smart phone.

On display in Booth 525, the Chalice LED Series is the most diverse range of downlights available with mounting options that include pendant, recessed, aircraft cable, wall and yoke mount, and dimming choices ranging from mains dimming to DMX. Also available with a wide variety of LED colour or white light options, plus numerous lens or reflector choices, the Chalice LED Series is the most versatile and easy to integrate downlight solution available today.

Ideal for use in black-box theatre spaces and educational fine arts facilities, the Gallery LED Series offers a 92+ CRI and control options that include mains dimming, DMX, 0-10VDC, local and DALI. With variety of colour temperatures, this scalable family produces 4000 lumens of white light output and can be used to build your solutions through profile, beam wash, wall wash and flood options, along with optional gel frames for colour.

The popular Spectra Cyc cyclorama/wall wash luminaire family utilises a diverse line of LED choices including RGBA, RGBW, 3000K, 5600K, and tunable white versions, to blend beautiful, rich colours via a patented LED blending lens. The on-board power supply allows for direct power and data input which can be daisy-chained through ten units. Available in Cyc 50, 100, 200, and 400 models, individual units can be linked side-by-side for greater saturation and are complete with library of pre-programmed single colours and various colour mixes.

As one of the only convection cooled LED profile fixtures available today, the PHX 150W LED profile is ideal for theatres, production studios and performing arts venues desiring superior, energy-efficient lighting in an acoustically sensitive environment. With a standard fixed beam lenses or zooms which range from 15-35 or 30-55 degrees, a 360-degree rotating barrel, and a die-cast aluminium frame, the PHX 150W LED profile is also available in a diverse line of LED choices including RGBA, RGBW, 3000K, 5600K, and tunable white versions.

Available as a 6-inch or 8-inch white output solution, the Pegasus LED Fresnel is both a mains dimmable and DMX controlled luminaire that replicates the soft light output that is expected from a theatrical or studio Fresnel. At under 150W, Pegasus meets the output of its 750 Watt incandescent counterparts and is also available in four different colour temperatures with a 10-70° spot-to-flood beam spread.
