Philips Entertainment

Lots of newness from Philips Entertainment Group (PEG)  From the Selecon world comes the new PL1 LED with full control over color, beam and intensity, using the same light engine as in the VLX by Varilite.

If that’s not enough fun they have also come out with the PL3 and PL5 using 3 and 5 LED light engines to create a powerful remotely operated color changing and beam changing light equivalent  to a 1K Fresnel consuming only 400 watts.

Also new to LDI was the Selecon SPX a 750 watt ellipsoidal with up to 63% more light output.  The SPX is a fixed beam angle range of 14°, 19°, 26°, 36° and 50°, that are drop in, interchangeable lens tubes.  Central planetary gear for effective, intuitive control of Peak: Flat light.  The unit has a new molded yoke, with twice the rigidity of steel.  The SPX contains an integral shutter clamp system which secures all four shutters after focusing.  Full 360-degree beam / pattern / shutter rotation with indexing for recording the settings.  Automatic mains power disconnection via micro switch when the lamp module is removed to change the lamp for maximum safety.

Strand has embraced the multitudes of lighting options from LED to quartz in the new S21 LED Raceway.

Systems can be mixed and matched as needed to create a completely flexible lighting system to meet the needs of any installation. The dimmer strips feature quiet convection cooled IGBT dimming for low lamp noise and reliable operation.  The S 21 is a fully Digital Dimmer strip with Forward and Reverse phase dimming with compatible LED drivers that require reverse phase operation, DMX512 I/O.  The IGBT dimmers are convection cooled requiring no dimmer room they are energy efficient – only a 2.5 volt insertion loss. S-21 has a choice of 3 power input locations – top, bottom and back in a wide range of load connector options.
