Selecon releases Toru!

29 May 2007,

Auckland, New Zealand, 14th March 2007 – With the release of the third and final model in the “standard setting” Selecon Performer Series of Followspots the range is now complete. Attendees of the Pro Light & Sound Show will be amongst the first in the world to check out the long-throw Toru 4º-8º Followspot during its official debut at the end of March in Frankfurt.

Toru, (the Maori word for ‘three’) delivers the same lift in efficiency, performance and operator features that were first realised in the wider angle Rua (9º-16º) and Tahi (18º-24º) models which were launched to such acclaim last year. Delivering 1000 lux at 95m - 4º and 1000 lux at 63m - 8º, Toru provides the output to cut through the brightest outdoor or large venue entertainment lighting rig, near the output of Xenon units yet costing much, much less and only requiring a domestic outlet to power the unit.

The high light output of the Performer Series meets the need for an affordable Followspot which will cut through the higher light levels used on stages in today’s world. The simple, intuitive layout of the comprehensive operational controls (black-out iris; mechanical dowser; cutters; CTO; Frost) ensures lighting technicians quickly feel comfortable and in command while the effectiveness of the Performer Series exhaust system ensures that they don’t have to suffer from added heat while doing their work. The electronic power supply is flicker free and allows for dimming of the lamp to 50% of its output.

Four Performer Series Toru Followspots will light up Rock Star Supernova, the very first act to take the stage in the brand new 12,000-seat Vector Arena on March 23rd, Auckland, New Zealand. Full details on the Toru are available from the Selecon website, or enquire through your local Selecon dealer.
