Vari*lite VLX Wash Luminaire Debuts in Australia
Posted on Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010
Queensland’s Avcom Staging is a specialist event staging company with over twenty eight years experience within the corporate events industry. This experience has taught managing director, Luke George, to only select the best in equipment technology with Vari*lite being a preferred choice.
”You can’t go past the name and reputation,” he commented. “It’s an internationally acclaimed product with quality and durability ultimately delivering long-term reliability and an excellent return on investment.”
It was no surprise that Luke looked to Vari*lite when choosing a LED moving head fixture and he was delighted with the new Vari*lite VLX Wash Luminaire. He particularly favoured the potential low maintenance and running costs associated with the VLX.
”The significantly reduced power draw will yield great direct and indirect benefits on all our events,” added Luke. “All of this aside, it is performance that counts. The VLX is bright, punchy and very quiet with exceptional speed and agility of the moving head mechanism. Colours are extremely accurate and colour mixing is equally impressive – totally free of shadowing. I’m sure they will prove to be the right choice for our business.”
The first project Avcom Staging used their new VLX Wash luminaries was a corporate conference held at Novotel Twin Waters Resort on the Sunshine Coast. The VLX fixtures were used for the Gala Dinner held in a white lycra-lined Hoecker pavilion. Set on top of 1.2 metre platforms, VLX’s were used as stage colour wash as well as full ceiling colour wash.
”Four VLX’s coped with both tasks easily even in a 45 metre x 25 metre Hoecker,” reported Luke. “While the photograph supplied doesn’t show the actual fixtures, you can see how intensive and complete the VLX’s coverage is. My guys thought they were fabulous!”
