Vari-Lite, Inc. has partnered with Clearwing Productions Inc. of Milwaukee, WI, to increase availability of Vari*Lite® automated lighting equipment for a variety of entertainment, corporate, and special events throughout the nation. Clearwing Productions evaluated the future of the automated lighting market for several months before adding VL2402™ wash luminaires and VL2202™ spot luminaires to production services.

"The partnership with Clearwing Productions is another step in our ongoing effort to increase the availability and use of Vari*Lite products," says Ken Matthews, vice president sales and marketing at Vari-Lite. "Clearwing is a proven leader in production services, and we are proud to associate Vari-Lite with a company that has secured a solid reputation for delivering only the highest quality products and services."

Tony Trovato, lighting department manager at Clearwing Productions, says Clearwing purchased VL2402 wash luminaires and VL2202 spot luminaires as part of an ongoing effort to expand its in-house services to include intelligent lighting equipment. Clearwing Productions provides sound, lighting, staging, and backline services to one of the country's largest music festivals, Summerfest, as well as numerous other prestigious corporate, festival and concert clients.
