Philips Selecon to showcase latest in LED innovation at PLASA London 2014

09 September 2014,

UK - Visitors to the PLASA London 2014 show this October are invited to twice daily light shows on the Philips Entertainment stand L80, where they will be able to see Philips Selecon's latest innovation in LED technology, the RAMA LED Fresnel, in action.

Designed for 230v operation, the RAMA LED Fresnel combines the superior control and light quality of a Philips Selecon Fresnel but with added LED advantages. It provides an adjustable cone of light, has a soft edge and is easily blended with adjacent beams to provide even illumination.

A key benefit of the exciting new luminaire is that it is no longer necessary to change lamps and as a 3000K LED source, designers can use colour filters, in a similar way to a tungsten unit. It is also the ideal tool for general stage lighting as it has a smooth dimming curve and offers significant reductions in power consumption over traditional 1/1.2kW Tungsten Halogen luminaires.

The RAMA LED Fresnel has the advantage of requiring only a single channel of control, just like a regular tungsten Fresnel.  Because of the high CRI of the 3000K LED engine, regular lighting gels, diffusers and frosts match exactly in the LED Fresnel against placing those filters in an older tungsten Fresnel.

This year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival got to try the Selecon RAMA LED Fresnel first hand, after 14 were installed into C-South venue. "The low power consumption of the RAMA LED Fresnel is fantastic for our temporary space, which is ordinarily a church," says Owen Horton, theatre manager at C-South. "Plus, they mitigate the need for changing the colour filters, and as they don't heat up even after heavy usage, we haven't had to change burned out gels either."

Visitors to the PLASA show can also enjoy cocktail hour at 5pm each day at the Philips Strand Lighting Bar, celebrating 100 years of innovation from the iconic brand

PLASA London takes place between the 5th and 8th of October 2014 at the ExCeL exhibition centre, with Philips Entertainment on stand L80.
