For the recent tour of German band ‘Beginner’, PRG XL Video developed an innovative additional feature for our fleet of Vari*Lite VL5 moving lights. We created an LED ring, made up of sixty high-power LEDs, which are dimmable and have full RGB colour mixing whilst being able to achieve a wide beam angle of 115°.
The result of which allows lighting designer to create new looks and use the VARI*LITE VL5 in ways that had not previously been done. To enable this modification to perform at the highest possible level, the cabling for the LED ring runs inside the cover of the fixture to avoid hindering mobility when panning and tilting the light. The board on which the LED's sit is flexible, reinforced with glass and black lacquered to achieve a higher contrast level.
