South Korea - Tongsuh Technology, Ayrton’s exclusive distributor for Korea, recently sold 12 Ayrton Ghibli LED spot luminaires to Art Won+ Stage Lighting, for its production of Peter Schaffer’s Amadeus, which ran for two months at the Gwanglim Church BBCH Art Hall in Seoul.
The production’s lighting design was created by You Sub Won, principal lighting designer & CEO of Art Won+ Stage Lighting, who reports: “I first saw Ghibli when Tongsuh brought it to me for a demo and I instantly fell in love with it. We know the trend in the market has been towards LED moving spots and we particularly liked Ghibli’s excellent dimming quality - the dimming curves were as smooth as those you get with tungsten. It is a very silent fixture with an attractive design, qualities that are both very desirable in the ‘open plan’ environment of the theatre.”
For Amadeus, the units were positioned around the theatre’s apron stage, around the front, sides and balcony, and used as a proscenium set arch for front lighting. Mr Won adds, “The framing feature of the Ghibli was very useful in this situation to cover those angles created by the apron stage, and we particularly liked the fast gobo replacement feature, which was very easy and convenient to do.”
Ghibli is Ayrton’s first LED spot fixture and the latest addition to its Automated Lighting range. Ghibli uses less than 900W of power, yet has a high 23,000lm due to its 80% optical efficiency, making it powerful enough for large-scale arenas.
Mr. Won comments, “Our company produces a lot of musicals, classical dance, theatrical plays and concerts. We plan to use Ghibli for all the theatrical plays and musicals, but we will try it out on other genres too. Its framing and zoom speed were very impressive and useful. We hope to purchase more in the future.”
