Philips Selecon LED PL Range Provides Vivid Colours for RADA Plays
08 March 2014
London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) staged Harold Pinter's Betrayal and Cole Porter's High Society at the end of 2013 utilising the strong colours and smooth dimming of Philips Selecon's PL range of LED fixtures. "We had used LED lighting before, however, not as often as we would like as subtlety of colour is so important to us as we mainly do drama," says Matt Prentice, RADA's Head of Lighting. "It's important for our students to use all kinds of new technologies, and as LED technology becomes more prevalent it's great that they have the opportunity to design lighting using products such as Selecon's PL range."

Winchester's Chesil Theatre Invests in Philips Selecon LED Technology
21 December 2013
Winchester's 75-seat Chesil Theatre has invested in Philips Selecon's PLprofile1s, PLfresnel1s, and PLcyc1s in an upgrade to LED following an extensive shootout comparing results with its existing tungsten rig. "The theatre has a good conventional lighting rig of about 70 lanterns, built up over many years," says Peter Vincent, Lighting Manager. "Selecon's PL range was a logical next step to replace some stock, and complement others. For us, they behave like proper theatrical lanterns with a common RGBW engine, user interface, and dimming curve."
