International Lighting Designer Hartley T A Kemp Specifies Philips Selecon
International lighting designer Hartley T A Kemp traversed the globe armed with Philips Selecon's PL range of LED fixtures to light two very different shows; Land of Our Fathers at Theatre503, London; and Sweet Nothings, at Australian Theatre for Young People's independent works season Under the Wharf, Sydney. "In terms of brightness, the PL Series LED units in 'Land of Our Fathers' were used at much lower levels, and balanced with a rig consisting mainly of 50W birdies, while the units in 'Sweet Nothings' were used at a higher level, really proving their worth being used against 650W and 1.2kW units in much brighter states," says Hartley.
Winchester's Chesil Theatre Invests in Philips Selecon LED Technology
Winchester's 75-seat Chesil Theatre has invested in Philips Selecon PLProfile1, PLFresnel1, and PLCyc luminiares in an upgrade to LED following an extensive shootout comparing results with its existing tungsten rig. The Chesil Theatre, home of the 150-year-old Winchester Dramatic Society and housed in a superb medieval building, has installed three PLProfile1, five PLFresnel1, and five PLCyc LED luminaires to reduce power consumption and simplify color changing and control.
Northcrest Baptist Church
In today’s house of worship market, congregations across the nation are updating their production capabilities in order to stay current with the latest technology advancements and better complement their worship services. Looking to complete a retrofit update to their existing lighting system to better complement their live HD broadcasts, Northcrest Baptist Church in Meridian, MS, turned to Creative Sound and Lighting who supplied them with a comprehensive lighting package that included PLProfile4, PL3 and PLCyc LED luminaires along with a Vision.net Control System, a 250ML Control Console, Rama Fresnels, plus a C21 Dimmer Rack and S21 LED Raceway from Philips Strand Lighting and Philips Selecon.
At the CITT Annual Conference and Tradeshow, Philips Entertainment was excited to showcase the breadth of product lines from Philips Strand Lighting, Philips Selecon, Philips Vari-Lite and the Showline family of LED luminaires demonstrating the power and technology innovations that set us apart from all others in the lighting industry.
AT LDI 2013, we enjoyed a very successful trade show complete with "The Passion of Light" showcase, a series of free educational workshops, a very well attended evening cocktail reception, plus we took home the LDI Award for "Best Creative Use of Light". Thank you to everyone who stopped by to see us and we look forward to another great event in 2014 where we will be celebrating our Centennial birthday as Strand Lighting turns 100 years old.
