Philips Selecon creates an interactive experience for //hapo museum South Africa
31 October 2013
//hapo's vision was clear: to create an interactive exhibition space where the story of Southern Africa, dating back 3.6 billion years, unfolds in an engaging narrative and visual form. The museum is split into a number of zones and scenes, each telling a different part of the African story. Lighting is used to evoke the feel and atmosphere of each scene presented. "We required a large number of fittings that could offer precision optics, energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness. There were very few opportunities for any dynamic effects, so being able to use colour, gobos and precise focus was very crucial."
Philips Selecon helps C-venues LED the way in creative sustainability at Edinburgh Festival
25 October 2013
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013 saw Philips Entertainment brands - Selecon and Vari-Lite - work alongside leading venue producer C venues to increase the creative opportunities for over 170 of its international productions. "We can change the colour instantly which reduces the number of fixtures we need to rig for a backlight wash. We no longer have to rush up ladders to change the gel colour so creatively it's very liberating."
Philips Selecon Aureol's Provide Discreet Solution at Drury Lane
26 July 2013
Philips Selecon's precise beam Aureol luminaires have been installed at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane as part of a £4million restoration. "Andrew Lloyd Webber was personally overseeing the works and wanted the public areas of the Rotunda, Royal Staircases and Grand Saloon, all of which were part of the 1810 theatre, returned to their original Regency style," says Paul Roughton from Stage Electrics. "He therefore required luminaires that could provide a well-hidden solution that was focusable and had shuttering to light old artworks that have been hanging in the theatre for many years. The Aureols have been supplied with UV glass to help conserve the paintings from further damage."
