Pacifics deliver 10 years long service at the Aotea Centre

Located in Auckland New Zealand, and opened to the public in 1989 with an initial Selecon luminaire fit out of several hundred luminaires the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre, THE EDGE® is Auckland's premier theatre in the central arts precinct.

The tiered auditorium seats 2256 people and is in high demand for a wide variety of events such as traditional performances, seminars, award ceremonies, large corporate functions and events and keynote presentations.

In 1998 the Centre made the very first purchase of Pacific luminaires: 64x Pacific 12°-28° Zoomspots with BP 1000W lamps were installed in the auditorium's main FOH perch positions where they still sit, 10 years on!

Venue technicians report low lamp replacements with no real maintenance  required other than routine cleaning contributing to savings in operational and maintenance budgets.

Maintenance costs are further reduced by the Pacific's modular design, lower component count and ease of access to all critical components without the need for tools. for example, all lenses are accessed for cleaning by simply undoing the lens focus knob and sliding the lens mount carriage out of the lens tube.

Lower cost of ownership guaranteed by Selecon's industry leading 3-year warranty.
