500 PROLIGHTS EclProfile FS fixtures, supplied by A.C. Lighting, help fill out Creative Technology’s new 105,000sq ft Las Vegas, NV warehouse space.
“We have been looking for an LED-based fixture that has excellent color rendering for the camera, full-spectrum color mixing and is easy for technicians to operate onsite,” said Chris Wasilauskas, Technical Director of Lighting for Creative Technology.
“A good portion of our business is large-scale corporate events,” said Creative Technology Project Manager, Ian Dobson. “A number of these types of events can have multiple breakout meeting rooms each requiring a basic stage wash. A single gig can have as many as 200 hundred EclProfile FS onsite. On top of that, we can have multiple events happening in the same time frame, so we needed the inventory and space.”
CT’s goal is to make setup and operation as simple as possible for on-site technicians. The EclProfile FS offers that having a single channel mode that handles the intensity of the fixture. “We mainly keep our EclProfile FS in daylight mode, but have the ability to change between, 3,200k, 5,600k, and 6,500k all right in the fixture,” continued Dobson, adding that EclProfile FS offers additional control modes that increase channel usage with the users’ need for greater colour manipulation.
When first researching LED Ellipsoidal, CT’s team worked closely with PROLIGHTS US distributor, A.C. Lighting. “CT and A.C. Lighting have long had a fantastic working relationship,” mentioned Wasilauskas.
A.C. Lighting’s PJ Turpin and Darrell Barnes set up and organised shootouts of various LED ellipsoidals. In the end, the advanced optics, colour matching/rendering, and support that PROLIGHTS and A.C. Lighting offered won over CT. “The colour matching between the fixtures is fantastic. Combining the year and a half development behind the optics, A.C. Lighting’s commitment is demonstrated in the ElcipseFS.”
Following the purchase, A.C. Lighting worked with CT to perfect the EclProfile FS by honing on the colour matching across the fixtures and to provide CT with updates. “CT is a fantastic partner,” said Turpin. “We were fine tuning their early shipment of fixtures to meet and exceed their standards and make the EclProfile FS what it is today.”
