Hawthorn Theatrical adds 36 LED-Lites impressions

18 June 2008

At last year's PLASA Show, Martin Hawthorn, MD of Hawthorn Theatrical, became transfixed by the new Impression LED heads on the stand of German Light Products (represented in the UK by LED-Lites).

Before the end of the show he had confirmed his first order for 18 of the GLP heads, and is so doing was among the first customers in the UK to purchase these high-powered eco-friendly lights for rental stock.

By the time this year’s ABTT Show came along the company had ordered a further 36 fixtures — divided equally between the RGB versions and Cold White/Amber.

The RGB version contains 90 Luxeon K2 LED's giving it a higher light yield capacity than any comparable LED fixture, with 30 each of the RGB colour LEDs able to create the entire colour spectrum. The White/Amber Impression contains 60 cold white LED’s and 30 amber, to allow continuous colour temperature adjustment, down to 3200°K.

The fixtures offer 660° pan and 300° tilt — with a complete 660° swing taking less than two seconds; this makes it application-perfect for touring, stage and TV as well as clubs and bars.

However it is on an exhibition stand at the Farnborough International Airshow next month that Hawthorn Theatrical will debut the new fixtures.

“These meet the environmental concerns — particularly with regard to heat generation in an exhibition environment,” stated Martin. “It is the ideal solution as the cold white/amber Impression will enable us to get the colour temperature down to 3,200°K.”

He says the combination of RGB and White/Amber fixtures are proving extremely popular with staff at the Leicester-based company.
