vari-liteVari-Lite will be debuting a new theatrical profile luminaire at the show
Germany - Vari-Lite will be joined by Strand and, for the first time, Zero 88, on-stand D95, Hall 12.0 at Prolight+Sound this year, to showcase fixture, control and dimming solutions from all three brands.
Vari-Lite will be debuting a new theatrical profile luminaire at the show - the VL1600 Profile. This is a precision key light moving head designed for high end theatre productions and includes a variety of exclusive features that already have top lighting designers buzzing. A premium profile luminaire, it’s launching with the tagline, ‘Naturally Beautiful, The Only Light for Your Encore’.
“The VL1600 Profile is a true Vari-Lite-quality fixture that has been explicitly made for theatre,” explains Martin Palmer, senior product manager, Vari-Lite and Strand Luminaires at Signify. “Designers still express a lot of underlying frustrations when using LED moving lights for theatrical or studio key light applications, and Vari-Lite wanted to address that with the high output and excellent colour rendering you’d expect from our fixtures, along with precision lighting features and tailored creative effects. We designed the VL1600 from the ground up to address the specific needs of these applications.”
Vari-Lite will also be demoing another new luminaire, details of which will be revealed on the stand.
Strand will be showcasing the recently launched Acclaim LED Series, including the Acclaim LED Fresnel and Acclaim LED Zoomspot, as well as both the RGBL and new warm white versions of the Acclaim LED Profile Light Engine (PLE). This series of theatrical luminaires has been designed to give maximum performance for small to mid-sized theatrical stages, education theatre spaces, community stages, small houses of worship, and studio spaces and draws on Strand’s decades of experience in producing 500W/650W luminaires.
Zero 88 will be demoing its full range of control solutions, including the popular FLX S Series Lighting Consoles. From design to manufacture, the simple to programme and cost-effective FLX S24 and FLX S48 have been developed to work in a wide range of applications, with specific considerations for education, houses of worship, fringe theatre, community venues, corporate events, concerts, rental, fashion, festivals, holiday parks, cruise ships, TV and many more.
Zero 88 is also celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022, and has launched a microsite looking back at half a century of success - zero88.com/50-years-of-memories
