EES takes Series 4000 luminaires on the road across Spain
During the annual EES roadshow in Spain, VL4000 BeamWash and Spot luminaires were showcased in Madrid, Seville, Bilbao and Barcelona; designed to bring EES customers closer to the high-end products. "The attendees of the roadshow were eager to experience the features and functionality of the VL4000 BeamWash, following the successful introduction of the VL4000 Spot last year," said Diana García. "Many were very impressed that the VL4000 BeamWash goes beyond being the Wash luminaire of the VL4000 range as it offers a beam, wash and shaft function in one luminaire. This is all without having to change lenses and maintaining the Vari-Lite power and quality of light."
