At this year’s event in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Philips Entertainment Lighting shared expertise and insights in the pre-conference masterclass and training sessions hosted by Bobby Harrell, showcased key new fixtures for touring, stage, TV, event and architectural applications, and offered a behind-closed-doors preview of the latest in-development prototypes and stunning new technology innovations.
Visitors to booth 1215 enjoyed an open stand experience where they could interact with the fixtures including the award winning VL6000 Beam, and enjoy tailor-made demos with expert product specialists.
The booth’s rig, floor, and ladders were crammed with lighting fixtures including new Vari-Lite VL1100 LED and VLZ range running a stunning lighting sequence controlled by NEO Console systems programmed to show sophisticated integrated displays.
It was the first time that these lights, including TV and studio fixtures, have been exhibited together in the US. Last year, the VL6000 Beam, was a concept in the demo room. This year, the market-leading mid-air effects fixture took pride of place in the booth, receiving an immense reception. The VL6000 Beam ultimately went on to win PLSN’s “Best New Beam Fixture 2017” award – recognition that the VL6000 Beam sets a new standard in its class.
