Pacific 90 solution for Ithaca College in New York

"Ithaca College purchased their first Pacific 90° Fixed Beam primarily as a teaching tool. However, when the time comes to talk about the latest technology in spotlights, the unit is almost always in the air. The Pacific was the perfect answer when lighting designer Steve TenEyck wanted to top light a large ceiling piece in a recent production of Cosi Fan Tutti.

A combination of short throw distance, and inaccessibility demanded not only the 90-degree spread but a dependable fixture we could focus and forget. Designer Steve TenEyck commented, "The translucent ceiling was so close to the grid, that only one fixture in our stock would do the job. With that distance it worked out just fine."

A somewhat less glamorous use: when not directly used for lighting a production, the Pacific 90° Fixed Beam serves the department as our IR emitter for the stage manager's IR camera.

One unit covers the entire stage, and the tight construction of the Pacific series results in no light leaks to disturb the patrons. Thank you for providing such a versatile product."
