Leading UK professional lighting sales company Lightfactor enjoyed a busy PLASA 2012 exhibition at Earls Court in London, with lots of activity on the stand and plenty of interest in key product ranges.
Says Lightfactor’s Peter Coles, “It was another good show for us. Lightfactor specialises in offering a variety of different high quality products, and there is definitely a market demand right now for ‘quality’. Other than that, we saw many existing and a good selection of potential new customers.”
Lightfactor chose the show to launch its new exclusive distribution partnership with soundlight.de, German manufacturers of a whole range of neat and handy DMX tools. This generated a real buzz and attendees were impressed with the RDM and systems relay widgets in particular.
There was also serious interest in innovative Italian lighting manufacturer DTS, for whom Lightfactor showed the new Scena F (fresnel) or PC (pebble convex) LED wash light among many others. This innovative product features a fully automated zoom, uses a 120W LED chipset and is controllable via DMX or in stand-alone mode from its on-board memory.
Lightfactor took several advanced orders for the Scena F on the stand.
Sales for DTS’s Jack Spot moving lights were also confirmed and closed during the four day exhibition. The features that people were loving about this fixture were its brightness, sharpness of the image and general versatility.
The Jack Spot is a lightweight moving head with a motorised zoom offering tight beam projection right the way to wide washing of up to 46 degrees. It’s very bright utilising only an 189W lamp, but with around 230 Watts of power consumption, also a real low-energy solution.
LDR is another Italian brand with flair and style, particularly strong in theatre installation and architectural environments.
The popular products at PLASA included the new Alba LED profile, a 200W equivalent fixture with excellent tungsten emulation and dimming right down to 0%. Also ‘hot’ at the show from LDR were their range of follow spots and colour scrollers.
Additionally featured on the stand were assorted Cooper Control products plus the latest LED fixtures from UK lighting manufacturer Cogent, including a new range of down-lighters with full theatrical grade dimming.
