Germany - GLP is celebrating a landmark year in its history as it marks its 25th anniversary in 2019 Founded by Udo Künzler in a 200sq.m workshop in Karlsbad, southern Germany, the operation has developed into one of the leading stage and event technology companies.
Occupying their biggest stand to date - a 380sq.m space in hall 12.1, D36 - there will be plenty to entice lighting professionals, from the signature lightshows (this year choreographed by American designer, Nate Files) to the GLP beer, enabling LDs to chat informally at the bar with company representatives.
The KNV series of modules is this year extended from the original KNV Cube and KNV Arc with the addition of the KNV Line and KNV Dot, offering even more creative opportunities for production designers.
Launched alongside, is the impression S350 Wash - a logical partner for the S350 unveiled last year. The same high-efficiency LED white light source, with 350 watts of power, ensures excellent colour rendering. Of course, in addition to the innovative virtual CTC other attributes of its sister include a framing module onboard.
Finally, the new GLP Highlander is based, as the name implies, on traditional technology: a 1,400W discharge lamp. The wash light impresses not only with its 230mm diameter front lens and signature baseless design, but also in its optical characteristics. It offers a very large zoom range with a punchy 5° beam angle and up to 63° smooth field angle with focus link. A four-blade framing system (± 30° blade tilt, fully lockable, ± 45° rotatable) and a fast iris make the Highlander an extremely versatile tool. It also weighs just 29.5 kg, making it one of the lightest wash light in its class.
Most recently, GLP has expanded its portfolio by adding additional spice to a complete range of products. With effect from Prolight + Sound this will be known as the independent Fusion series.
In addition to the GLP booth, visitors to Frankfurt will have an opportunity to sample the products in a real-world situation at the LEA Stage in the Festhalle, adjacent to the Messe. Featured in the rig will be the impression S350 Wash, KNV Dot and KNV Line and the Highlander Wash where they will be used together with GLP impression S350.
