Posted on Thursday, December 20th, 2012
Philips Vari-Lite announces the new VL3015LT Spot luminaire is now shipping worldwide. As the next evolution of the Philips Vari-Lite 1,500W series of luminaires, the company says the VL3015LT Spot combines extreme power and a broad zoom range — to give lighting designers everything they need in one automated luminaire.
“In our continuing effort to produce the most innovative and sought after automated luminaires, we are extremely excited to be shipping the new VL3015LT Spot luminaire,” said Brad Schiller, Philips Vari-Lite product marketing manager. “Never before have we created a light that offers so many exceptional features and after demonstrating the new fixture to dealers, designers, and technicians worldwide, we are confident that the VL3015LT will be another game-changer in the entertainment lighting industry.”
Using the highly reliable 1,500W Osram double-ended short arc lamp to produce 42,487 lumens of output, the VL3015LT Spot features 10:1 zoom optics, CYM colour mixing, variable CTO wheel, two five-position color wheels, three gobo/effects wheels, a beam size iris, and separate dimmer and ultra-fast strobe mechanisms. A standard palette of gobos, effects, and colours is provided with the luminaire, and custom gobos, effects, and colours are also available. Additionally, the VL3015LT Spot contains an independent rotating and indexing three-facet prism as well as an independent frost glass, and the 6- to 60-degree zoom range allows for use in a multitude of applications from stadiums to theatres worldwide.
“The VL3015LT Spot will be the new workhorse of any lighting rig,” commented lighting designer Craig Caserta. “The ability to project crisp gobos at just about any distance is a fantastic new option, plus you also get all the Vari-Lite quality and features we all rely upon.”
Lighting designer Brock Hogan agreed, “”Seeing photos of what the VL3015LT can do is one thing, but after seeing it in person for myself, I can’t wait to use it in my next design.”
