The newly redesigned web site of the Barbizon Lighting Company recently went live on the World Wide Web at www.barbizon.com.
Barbizon Lighting aims to extend the reach of all the offices by serving a broad audience of entertainment lighting professionals andmembers of the public looking for the latest production lighting. The new web site features expanded content and soon to be added educational resources. The redesign incorporates a simpler, cleaner look with completely revamped navigation.
"We took almost a year to revamp the site and get it ready for the industry, like any site it's a work in progress where we will continually be adding and refining content," says Tobin Neis, Marketing director for Barbizon. "The ability to pull up your lighting fixture and having the site suggest which lamps work in it is pretty handy. We've also worked hard to make a free searchable online tool for technicians and designers to find easily consumables then purchase them in one place."
Comprehensive Lamp, Gobo, and Gel catalog all in one place
There is now a catalog of over 8,000 items that include the complete gobo catalogs with images from Apollo, Gam, Lee and Rosco. Gel is also searchable in this way. The site is organized to provide quick and direct access to all of our resources for the user, and if a customer is not sure exactly where to look for specific information on Barbizon.com, the newly developed site-wide search engine will help them find what they are looking for. There is also a redesigned lamp cross-reference guide where the user chooses the manufacturer and fixture and the site will show the lamps that are recommended for the fixture. Thomas Augusta, Barbizon's national sales manager commented, “This feature is very exciting, now our customers can research lamps for all their fixtures in one place.”
