Philips Entertainment (Strand / Vari*Lite)

Now consolidated into one unit Strand and VariLite were showing as one company.  New for Strand Lighting, the C21 processor revamp with better electronics, a new onboard RJ45 connector, no longer requiring a separate plugin location, USB data slot, updated menu and encoder wheel access to the processor menu.

Also for Strand the SPX LED, warm white LED profile spotlight launched. Designed to replace your conventional tungsten fixtures, this SPX is dimmable either via DMX, or your standard forward phase dimmer.  It provides a smooth step-less fade right down to zero.  The output is similar to a standard 575-watt lamp.

VariLite was showing the new VL10 BeamWash fixture, the first lighting fixture to use the Philips 25R platinum 550W lamp.  The VL 10 BeamWash can produce 28,000 lumens of output and ranges from a 2.2  to 48-degree zoom.  With Dual overlaying prisms, an eight-slot rotating gobo wheel, an aperture wheel featuring 12 designs, along with the new VL*FX glass animation wheel make this a powerful addition to your lighting arsenal.
