Selecon at ABTT Theatre Show 2007

06 June 2007,

Auckland, New Zealand, 28th May 2007 – Selecon Performance Lighting continue on their innovative way with several new product debuts planned for the ABTT Theatre Show 2007 on the 13th and 14th June including the long throw Toru 4º-8º Followspot, the third and final model from the Performer Series range of Followspots. Previously seen in pre-production mode and now in full production, the Toru 4º-8º Followspot has been extremely well received with several orders for major theatres including two units destined for the Barbican, and five Toru 4º-8º Followspots for Norway’s new National Opera House in Oslo, together with four short throw Tahi 18º-24º Followspots.

ABTT Theatre Show visitors will also have the chance to try out the newly re-modelled Acclaim Fresnel and PC which introduce long-awaited heat management to 500W / 650W luminaires, typically used in our schools and community theatres. This new feature ensures operators can focus these versatile little stage lighting workhorses without the need for gloves. The new Acclaim luminaires also include the integrated safety bond design feature alongside Selecon’s well known mains power isolation solution ensuring full compliance with European Standards for safe and reliable operation in any venue – not just for use by professionals.

The Selecon team will be encouraging ‘hands-on’ play and welcome your feedback to these debutants plus a new model, pre-production Arena Fresnel which will also be on display, alongside a good representation of the rest of Selecon’s extensive range of lens luminaires, profiles, cycs, floods, groundrow and followspots.

David Wilkins, Louise McCoy, Mike Goldberg and Jeremy Collins look forward to your dropping by the new-look Selecon Stand No: 145 located in the same position as previous years in the Lawrence Hall, Royal Horticultural Halls, London for a drink and a chat as well as the opportunity to pick up your complete set of the “Switched On” stage lighting posters.
