Sun Valley, CA – July 31, 2006 – Entertainment Lighting Services (ELS), one of the nation’s leading entertainment, exhibit and event lighting suppliers and production services companies, announces the addition of the newest automated luminaires from Vari-Lite, long recognized for leadership and innovation as a designer and manufacturer of automated lighting equipment.

"Lighting professionals, event and exhibit producers, as well as TV and film professionals turn to ELS for our extensive inventory, our deep technical knowledge of the products we provide, and our superior service," says Matt Talent, Director of Rentals and Production at ELS.

"The quality and advanced features of the Vari-Lite line have created great demand among our rental customers. With the addition of Vari-Lite equipment to the ELS inventory, they now have access to the gear they want to use – plus the depth of inventory and standard of support they have come to depend on from ELS," Talent adds.

Rental inventory now in place includes the VL500™ series – in both tungsten and arc configurations – as well as the VL1000™ ERS and VL2500™ spot luminaires.

"Rental customers who choose Vari-Lite have traditionally had limited options in accessing the gear. We are very excited to now establish ELS as a new alternative to these important customers," notes Talent.

In the installation sales and systems integration area of its business, ELS provides complete access to the Vari-Lite line, as well as technical support and service.
