Lebanon distributor Prolites supplied and installed 26 Philips Selecon SPX Zoomspot luminaires and four Philips Strand Lighting SD6 Dimmer Packs into two newly renovated Télé Liban talk show and news studios. In addition, three new news studios at Al Mayadeen were equipped with 54 Philips Selecon SPX Zoomspot luminaires, five PLfresnel1 LED luminaires, eight Strand Lighting Wallrack Digital Dimmers and a Strand Lighting 200 plus Lighting Control Console. "We chose Philips Strand Lighting and Philips Selecon products because of their reliability and proven track record," explains Dany Akoury, technical manager at Télé Liban and project supervisor for the renovation. "The user-friendliness of the products also reinforced our choice as our technical staff are able to operate them without having to undergo extensive training."
'Primary' at the PSAS Gallery
Award-winning Australian lighting designer Flynn Talbot utilized the intense color of PLprofile1 LED luminaires to add another dimension to his latest stunning light installation 'Primary' at the PSAS gallery in Perth. Said Talbot, "For this project I needed intense color and absolutely pure light because the installation is designed to break up light into many shadows. Unless the light source was completely even, the effect and the magic would have been lost. I needed a smooth and color-rich shift between primary colors, so I chose the PLprofile1 LED luminaires."

Whitehouse was joined by David Limbert, Production Manager at AV company Magnetic Storm, for the seminar. Together, they demonstrated to the potential new generation of lighting designers the innovative Philips Selecon LED luminaires.
