The PRG Europe sales team (formerly VLPS Lighting Services) has announced it is to sell the new product Bak Pak™ from Entertainment Technology, a Division of the Genlyte Thomas Company.

The new Bak Pak™ IGBT dimming module is the perfect complementary device for conventional fixtures that require more advanced control. The Bak Pak is an individual dimmer that mounts wherever a need exists for a "single" dimmer, thus eliminating the need for additional rack space. Entertainment Technology introduced the Bak Pak at LDI 2003.

The module, available in 750-W, 1200-W, or 2400-W versions, operates using standard USITT DMX512 protocol. It is also completely functional using on board control options for applications where DMX power is not available.

"The Bak Pak is like the Post-It Note for the lighting industry," comments Entertainment Technology product manager Heinz Roy. "There are so many uses for it, you can stick it anywhere. Can you imagine an office without Post-It Notes? It will be the same way with the Bak Pak. Once lighting designers begin to discover its many uses, they'll wonder how they ever did their jobs without it."

PRG Europe will be giving away a Bak Pak at Plasa 2004. To win, attendees have to visit the PRG Europe stand - J52, next to the Central Meeting Area and a business card. The winner will be announced on the last day of the show, Wednesday 15th September at 4pm.
