Philips Entertainment Lighting presented a broad selection of its most talked-about recent product introductions at an open day hosted by White Light, at its base in south-west London, on 12 October.

One of a series of open days taking place across the UK during October and November, the White Light event aimed to provide lighting professionals in and around the capital with in-depth access to key products. Taking advantage of the high ceiling and white walls of White Light’s beautifully-equipped demo space, the Philips Entertainment team gave visitors a chance to take a close look at the features and performance characteristics of the latest luminaires. 

From the Philips Vari-Lite range was the VL6000 Beam, currently being spec’d for a number of major tours and TV shows. This was demo’d alongside the latest LED-based moving heads from the Philips Vari-Lite line, the VLZ Profile and VLZ Wash, the latter with its internal framing system. Most attention, however, was drawn by the VL1100 LED.


Other high-quality LED-based stage lighting innovations were shown in the Philips Selecon range. These included the RAMA LED fresnel, the PLprofile1 MkII and PLprofile4 MkII – all of which impressed with their quality of light output. Among the all-LED Showline series were the hybrid wash/spot/beam fixture the SL Hydrus 350, the SL LEDSpot and the SL Beam 300FX, the latter drawing interest for its punchy output, its 4-40 degree zoom and its comprehensive effects capabilities.

From the Philips Strand Lighting range were three LED-based television lighting products, the 400F fresnel, the 200F fresnel and the slimline 300S LED studio softlight panel. Visitors were able to look inside the deceptively traditional-looking body of the 400F to see Philips Lighting’s high-tech, water-cooled LED light engine.

Last but not least was the Strand NEO lighting control console running the latest v3.8 software, providing control of all the fixtures in the demo room. A number of visitors, as yet unfamiliar with this relatively new control platform, were able to get to grips with its powerful and accessible feature-set for the first time.
