As Good a Time As Any
International LD Hartley T.A. Kemp turned to the versatile color changing of Philips Selecon's LED range of luminaires for the world premiere of Peter Gill's new play As Good a Time As Any. "The PLprofile1 worked very well as crosslight and as low front fill. I find if you have a few LED profiles in a conventional rig these are great positions to use them in and their versatility in terms of color can make a real difference. This was the first time I had used the PLcyc1 and the units performed very well, giving great color tones on the painting in the scene changes as well as good warm and cool white during the choruses."
In many educational theater environments, students are often confronted with the challenges of learning their craft on outdated equipment. But every so often, a school district gets the opportunity to create a performance space filled with all the latest technologies available.

National Military Museum
Amsterdam-based agency Rapenburg Plaza was in charge of the lighting design for the National Military Museum choosing 42 PLcyc1, 12 PLprofile1 and 269 PLfresnel1 LED luminaires for key lighting in six of the museum's themed halls. "The concept for the space is that each of the halls are interactive and follow a storyline," said lighting designer and Rapenburg Plaza partner Pelle Herfst. "We selected the Selecon fixtures as excellent tools to achieve this. The DMX-controlled color changing possibilities meant we were able to create a wide range of ambiences for the different thematic spaces."
