Vari*lite VLX – So Much More Than Green

Posted on Monday, July 19th, 2010

In an effort to embrace green technology, The Videoplus Group has been researching more environmentally friendly light sources and this lead to them recently trialling the new Vari*lite VLX LED wash light.

Two of the Vari*lite VLX fixtures were utilised on the Breast Cancer Awareness Gala Dinner hosted by Olivia Newton John and held at Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast. The VLX supplied general room wash and effect as well as stage lighting for acts such as James Blundell.

”We’re actively trying to become a greener company,” remarked James Dee, Regional Manager Queensland for The Videoplus Group. “The new Varilite VLX moving wash were very impressive. They deliver such richness and variety of colours in the LED – in fact the colour rendering is spectacular, also through the colour correction and skin tone.

James reports that the dimming curve on the Varilite VLX has to be one of the smoothest he has ever encountered.

”The smooth operation plus low fan and motor noise is also impressive in a venue with a low ceiling height,” he added. “The strobe control is also an excellent feature of the VLX as is the fact that they are lightweight and easy to setup.

”The other positives to the VLX were low power consumption, low heat, long life, and low operating costs. The VLX also impressively shows no evidence of flickering shot through digital video cameras.

”All in all a very impressive and flexible wash light for any production company.”
