The first ProLights Stark1000 LED Washlights delivered to the UK were a key design element for Shane Filan’s recent Right Here Tour.
Liz Hobbs Group both promoted and produced the tour for the former Westlife frontman, featuring big production values in more intimate venues. Their investment in 24 of ProLights’ innovative new Stark1000s, supplied by A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET), gave LD Pete Watts the tools to create a stunning looking show.
The Stark1000 is a true workhorse fixture, delivering a premium performance at an exceptional price point. Harnessing 19 of Osram’s new 40W RGBW LEDs, with a bespoke optical design, it provides a beautiful colour range with a smooth, even wash right through the massive 3 – 45° zoom range. Stunning beam and “eye candy” effects come from full control of individual pixels, tied with a fast, flexible, on board effects generator.
Rupert Doogan-Hobbs, Production Director at Liz Hobbs commented, “AC-ET gave us some really good advice on the ProLights Stark1000. They have given us exactly the effect we wanted on the tour and we will certainly be using them on a lot more gigs. They’ve proven to be great value for money and pack incredibly well, taking up much less space on the trailer than we planned.” Lighting Designer, Pete Watts commented: “I’m really impressed with the Starks and the wide range of creative effects I can achieve with them.”
As part of their investment, the Liz Hobbs Group also added a ProLights AlphaPix3 LED display and a Green Hippo Karst Media Server to their inventory for the tour – also supplied by AC-ET from their one-stop entertainment technology brands portfolio.
The ProLights lighting range is available exclusively in the UK from A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET).
