Production Resource Group, LLC (PRG) provided 600 of its new AutoPar Wash Luminaires to the North American International Auto Show last month. Designer Howard Werner of Lightswitch New York, needed a specialty fixture for trade show exhibits and PRG responded. "I was looking for an automated fixture to serve the needs of auto show clients," he says. "The fixture needed to have a daylight color temperature with a lens that rotated, but it didn’t need a lot of other bells and whistles.” The result was PRG’s AutoPar, which debuted at LDI.

“It provides great value to clients by reducing the labor costs required to install and operate more complex fixtures, and it’s a product that’s ideal for the auto show circuit,” adds Werner. “The AutoPar has the features designers want, but without any unnecessary complexity. We didn’t need it to change color, iris, or douse."

Since it's debut at LDI, Lightswitch has used the AutoPar extensively on several projects including Daimler Chrysler, Nissan and Infiniti in Detroit, and on Subaru, Nissan and Infiniti in Chicago.
