PR’s XLED 590 strikes with deadly effect

Posted on Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

The 15th annual Deadlys awards at Sydney Opera House contained all the glamour, emotion, pride and excitement that has come to be expected from Indigenous Australia’s night of nights.

Production specialists Coastal Lighting rigged a spectacular display incorporating four of PR Lighting’s XL590 LED moving head washlights into the stage floor, as specified by LD, Aldo Fabrizio.

The light output of this fixture closely resembles that of a conventional wash light containing a 1200W discharge lamp, since it uses Osram’s Diamond Dragon LED, one of the world’s brightest single-chip SMT LEDs. Each head contains 90 high power 5W LED’s (30 x Red, 30 x Green, 30 x Blue) with the added advantage of excellent colour mixing and high uniformity of the white beam.

The clients were particularly impressed by these attributes, commenting on their surprising brightness and overall performance of the XLED’s.

The production was seen by a capacity crowd of nearly 2,000 people at the Opera House who helped celebrate the highest achievers and inspiring role models of Indigenous Australia.

Hosted by Luke Carroll, performers included Jessica Mauboy (from Australian Idol), the Doonooch Dancers, Street Warriors and Casey Donovan.
