Philips Vari-Lite is proud to announce that Toucan Productions has made an investment in VL4000 Spot luminaires which are now available at their Oklahoma City headquarters. As the largest provider of lighting, staging and sound equipment in Oklahoma, Toucan Productions supports over 1000 events annually through their massive equipment inventory which already included a number of Vari-Lite luminaires and is now strengthened by the 1200W VL4000 Spot luminaire.

“We have used Vari-Lite fixtures for well over a decade, and when the VL4000 Spot came out, we saw this as a great opportunity to get one of the best lights on the market and to add to our strong Vari-Lite inventory,” said Misty Myers, Vice President Toucan Productions. “The VL4000 Spot was a ‘no-brainer’ to purchase because of all the features packed into the light which makes it an extremely versatile fixture for all markets. We are very excited to be Authorized Vari-Lite dealers and to sell the brand to everyone making them love Vari-Lite luminaires as we do.”

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.

“As one of our newest Vari-Lite Dealers, we are very excited to be cultivating and growing our relationship with Toucan Productions,” said Julie Smith, Philips Vari-Lite General Manager of the Americas. “Covering everything from concerts to corporate events and Houses of Worship, Toucan Productions supports the full gamut of events throughout the southwestern United States, and we are confident that the VL4000 Spot will be an ideal fixture for their lighting inventory.”

With the 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.
