Vari*Lite / Strand

Vari-Lite and Strand made a big impression at LDI 2019 in Las Vegas. With a large booth front-and-center at the convention hall, it was difficult to miss the two brands as they presented their latest entertainment lighting products.

To make it easier for customers to find the products most relevant to them, the booth was split into two sections: one for the production market and one for the installation market. The production section of the booth featured a full lighting rig running a music light show as well as demonstrations highlighting the VL6000 Series, VL2600 Series, VL800 Series, VL10 Beamwash, and VL5LED Wash (more on that below). The light show was programmed and run using a Strand NEO Console.

In the installation area, visitors received hands on experience with Vari-Lite and Strand’s most popular installation products. A dedicated console area was included, showing off the new Strand NEO Compact 10 Console along with the recently released Strand NEO v3.10 software update that provides a number of requested feature updates and bug fixes. The installation area also included an interactive systems wall with a complete, integrated solution from Vari-Lite and Strand featuring control, power distribution, data distribution, and luminaires. Vari-Lite VL800 Series event fixtures had a dedicated section of the installation area as well, where they were joined by the upcoming Vari-Lite VL800 Eventprofile.
