Philips Vari-Lite announced today the discontinuation of the VL550CD Wash luminaire product line, but will continue to offer the VL550 Wash, VL550D Wash, and VL1100CD luminaires. The decision to discontinue the VL550CD is based upon the success of current LED lighting sources which have proven more powerful with a greater reduction in energy consumption.

“While the VL550CD achieved our goal of offering one of the best options in energy efficient lighting, we have found an even more efficient solution in the VLX3 Wash from the successful technologies inside our family of VLX LED luminaires,” stated Bob Schacherl, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Therefore as we are dedicated to providing our customers with the most efficient and effective light sources possible for all their applications, we have decided to embrace LED technology for this product segment since the VLX3 Wash offers the more effective and powerful solution.”

Although production of the VL550CD has been discontinued, Technical and Service Support will continue. To find out more about the discontinuation of the VL550CD, please contact your Philips Vari-Lite Sales Manager.
