Philips Entertainment add Showline to the Vari-Lite, Selecon and Strand Lighting Family

04 September 2012,

Worldwide: - Philips Entertainment will debut professional lighting brand, Showline, and its range of super-efficient, feature-rich, professional entertainment LED fixtures at PLASA 2012. (Earls Court, 9th – 12th September, stand BV 1-F50). Showline will join premier lighting brands Vari-Lite, Selecon and Strand Lighting on the Philips Entertainment booth in Hall 1.

Specifically designed with the live music and events markets in mind, Showline luminaires work seamlessly together with other Philips Entertainment Brand luminaires, offering consistent colour matching, dimming and operation along with intuitive, simplified set up.

This means lighting designers and technicians are now freer than ever to plan their production, safe in the knowledge that they can achieve consistent light and colour across the full range of luminaires. On show will be the SL BAR 640 and 660, the SL BAR 520 and the SL PAR 150.

The Showline SL BAR 640 and 660 are powerful RGBW linear wash luminaires available in four-foot and six-foot configurations respectively. Both deliver exceptional light output and accept a range of standard beam spread accessories to adjust the standard 60-degree beam angle. For more even vertical coverage the SL BAR 640 and 660 can use split beam lenses, which allow for two different beam angles in the same luminaire.


The Showline SL BAR 520 is a two-foot RGBW linear wash luminaire that produces over 8000 lumens of output. With standard 8-degree lenses and high-resolution pixel mapping control, the SL BAR 520 is ideal for a variety of applications. The high output linear fixture will also be available in the future in a four-foot model.

SL-PAR-150-3The SL PAR 150 is a die-cast aluminium LED Par can that utilises nine RGBW LEDs to produce over 3500 lumens of output. The manual zoom provides a beam angle range from 10 to 63 degrees and the split yoke bracket allows for easy hanging or floor mounting.All Showline luminaires feature built-in effects, 8 and 16-bit control modes, a reduced channel HSI mode as well as a strobe channel. They come with standard mounting brackets for floor or pipe mount and a secure lock off and tight profile allow for close placement for smooth beam spreads. The luminaires also feature cable management for clean cabling and easy set up.

A huge benefit for rental houses is that units can be configured without power as the colour displays have a battery back up supply.
