Installs & Events
Surrey Memorial Hospital
At the Surrey Memorial Hospital, LIGHTWORKS was asked to create a diurnal lighting control system for the Natal Infant Care Unit with adjustable ambient lighting in the infant spaces that could be independently controlled within each room and have the ability to be manually adjusted and automatically operated in a diurnally controlled cycle when selected by the caregiver. An additional requirement was to provide a master off control to provide rapid room darkening to permit Transillumination procedures when required. Their design uses networked Philips Strand Lighting A21 dimming panels, Contact low voltage relay panels, and wall mounted Vision.net 8 button keypads providing the ability to leave the diurnal lighting cycle and rejoin as required, fade up or down the ambient lighting luminaires, and turn OFF all lights in the care unit.
At the Madame Tussaud's, New York City, Lighting Designer Herrick Goldman created a colorful and powerful design for the new "Music Experience" installation using 13 PLProfile1 LED luminaires stating that he chose the fixtures due to their tunable whites and how "they bring the figures to life".
Backstage Access - Production Expo
At the Annual Backstage Access - Production Expo at the Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary, Alberta, Matthew Burstein set up a full display of lighting and controls from Philips Strand Lighting and Philips Selecon to demonstrate the power and performance of our technologies through a "hands on" experience for attendees.
At USITT 2014 in Fort Worth, Texas, Philips Strand Lighting took the opportunity to present the North American debut of the NEO Lighting Control Console. With thousands of theatre directors, technicians and students in attendance, NEO received a very welcome response with many commenting on its easy to understand interface with intuitive touch screen technology which gives the lighting operator the ability to seize the light and motivate the lighting design simply and effectively.
Royal Academy of Dramatic Art
London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) staged Harold Pinter's "Betrayal" and Cole Porter's "High Society" utilizing the strong colors and smooth dimming of Philips Selecon's PL Series of LED luminiares. RADA's Head of Lighting Matt Prentice consulted with Selecon to specify a mixture of PLProfile1, PLFresnel1, and PLCyc luminaires to the drama school, which is generally regarded as one of the most prestigious in the world.
