Philips Vari-Lite is proud to announce that lighting and staging equipment supplier ELS is now stocking the VL4000 Spot luminaire at their Sun Valley, CA, headquarters. Serving a wide range of industries including film and television, theater, live events, themed environments, houses of worship, and more, ELS is excited to provide their clients with the new 1200W luminaire from Philips Vari-Lite designed to offer unlimited creative possibilities.
“When the VL4000 Spot luminaire was released, ELS was one of the first companies to carry the fixture on the West coast, and with good reason,” said Scott Jevons, ELS Vice President of Operations. “The VL4000 Spot literally has all the necessary features desired in a powerful fixture that weighs only 83 pounds. We raced to get them into our inventory and they have been one of our most popular rental items ever since.”
The VL4000 Spot from Philips Vari-Lite includes all the tools needed to create dynamic and useful lighting on any stage as every aspect of the luminaire has been designed with performance in mind. The 1200W VL4000 Spot boasts 33,000 lumens as well as a quiet Studio mode which outputs 25,000 lumens. Its high resolution optics ensure remarkable center-to-edge focusing and an unprecedented contrast ratio while a 5:1 zoom covers an amazing 9 to 47 degrees without sacrificing output or clarity.
“ELS has a long history of providing the most technologically advanced lighting equipment to a full range of events and productions,” said Julie Smith, Philips Entertainment General Manager of the Americas. “We are very proud to have them as a partner and Authorized Vari-Lite Dealer, and we are excited to see how they encourage their clients to use the VL4000 Spot luminaire to make their productions truly unique.”
With the new Infinity Color Mix System the VL4000 Spot offers CYM color mixing along with variable CTO color temperature correction and dual five-position color wheels. As a result, the luminaire has incredibly smooth color mixing whether operating in a slow fade or instant snap and the dual opposing fixed color wheels achieve unique color effects, providing a multitude of multi-color combinations. The VL4000 Spot luminaire also features dual rotating gobo wheels with a remarkable new collection of optimized gobo patterns for both aerial and projected imagery. Dual animation wheels provide dynamic motion effects as well as the chromatically tuned Dichro*Fusion effect. The beam can be further modified via the precise four blade shutter system and mechanical iris, plus an independent prism with divergence control and variable frost are also implemented into the luminaire.
