I want a PC Spot!

Looking Back, Looking Ahead; The Industry Talks Back - September 2002 issue of Lighting Dimensions raised the question of leading industry figures:
"What's on your personal product wish list?"

New York-based Lighting Designer Clifton Taylor's wish was for "US-available PC (Plano Convex spotlights) luminaires. These luminaires got a bad reputation in the States and fell out of use in favour of the ellipsoidal but current models available in Europe are beautiful and useful in many situations that our available instruments don't quite fit. I wish that I could easily get them here".

Michael Eddy from Lighting Dimensions had a chat to Clifton, here’s an excerpt:

The festival (Flamenco festival USA) opened in January at the Shubert Theatre in Boston and just concluded its US tour. Taylor had a chance to light and preview many of the performers in Seville, Spain prior to the Boston opening. In Seville he used PCs in the design.

“PCs are great for many applications,”
he says. “The units from Selecon are available with textured lenses, which produce a beautiful soft edge and a flat field that was perfect for the show.”
