E-mail Print PDF

Billed as The World's Greatest Pink Floyd Show, Brit Floyd has performed to over one million fans around the world since its first show in Liverpool in 2011. The lighting design by Dave Hill incorporates Elation's Platinum 5Rs into the trademark Pink Floyd arch and circle light show. Used as part of the floor package are 8 Elation Design Spot 1200C’s, a hybrid spot/wash fixture. “The optics are excellent,” said LD Stu Dingley, “often rivalling output from other fixtures with larger apertures and lamps.

E-mail Print PDF

GERMANY - In the four decades since its founding, Circus Roncalli has always been committed to maintaining the classical circus tradition. And as the circus has grown over the years, so too has it lighting needs. Currently, several Clay Paky lights, including 36 A.leda K10s, 28 Alpha Spot HPE 700s and six Alpha Wash 700s, were installed along with other equipment. "The A.leda K10's brightness is unmatched. Despite its compact size, it is a really efficient wash light. It is also impressive thanks to its excellent colour rendition. Furthermore, these lights are surprisingly lightweight and are perfectly suited to places of this kind," said Managing Director Jens Wiegandt.
