    Large theatres are home to some of the top performances in the world, and the lighting should be just as high quality. With a focus on perfect reproduction of skin tone, costumes, and set pieces, white and colored light must be excellent.
    With our lighting solutions, large theatres can bring an adaptable visual experience perfect for any production. From theatrical luminaires like the VL600 Acclaim Series to moving heads like the VL1600 Profile and VL5LED Wash, Vari-Lite fixtures offer beautiful color rending and professional features.
    The sophisticated productions in these spaces often use rental fixtures, but the facility needs a quality house system as well. As such, the system should have the power and data distribution capabilities to handle both the in-house and rental equipment.
    With our customizable power control solutions, large theatres can meet the needs of a variety of fixtures. For more control in more locations in the venue, Networking Nodes can connect your entire solution sACN or Art-Net, ensuring you have control where you need it—with less cost.
    To meet the varied requirements of productions and events in these spaces, large theatres need a diverse set of theatrical fixtures along with full featured moving head luminaires that can be used to bring effects and illuminate many different areas of the stage during a production.
    Vari-Lite’s VL600 Acclaim Series provide more capabilities from less fixtures, increasing versatility, while the VL1600 Profile’s Vari*frost variable frost and VL*FX theatrical animation wheel deliver the perfect look for every moment.
    Productions in a large theatre are designed and run by professionals who need the ability to deliver the perfect look every time. To do this, the lighting console should have capabilities that open up creative opportunities for any theatrical, musical, or other event.
    The Neo X15 is Vari-Lite’s flagship, high-performance lighting console designed for large facilities, and helps designers find the perfect look in less time with an advanced effects engine that supports pixel mapping, media playback, timelines, and more.
