Vari-Lite Hits The Road

DALLAS, TX--Vari-Lite has embarked on a six-city road show. As part of the 25th Anniversary Celebration, the Vari-Lite road show will highlight the new VL3500 Wash luminaire, the newest member of the VARI*LITE Series 3000 family of luminaires, along with the complete line of VARI*LITE automated luminaires. The road show will begin in Los Angeles, CA, and will conclude November 2007 in Orlando, FL.

"Vari-Lite is eager to get out on the road and demonstrate the new VL3500 Wash luminaire" stated Vari-Lite product marketing manager George Masek. "During the road show, we will have the opportunity for quality personal interaction with our dealers and lighting designers across the nation. Their feedback regarding the light, along with their feedback on the complete VARI*LITE product line, is highly regarded. This new light is truly something special, and we are excited to be releasing it."

With an output that exceeds 50,000 lumens, and offering new dimensions in color and beam control, the VL3500 Wash luminaire will soon be the standard by which all wash lights are measured. The new fixture also features zoomable beam optics, CYM color mixing, variable CTO color temperature correction, dual five-position color wheels, a separate dimmer, and an ultra-fast strobe mechanism. In addition to the optics system, Vari-Lite introduces the VARI*BRITE mode. From any zoom position, this mode will allow lighting designers to produce a tight column of remarkably intense light making the VL3500 Wash the most versatile wash luminaire on the market.

The rest of the Vari-Lite road show schedule consists of Las Vegas, NV (May 7-8), New York City, NY (May 16-17), Mexico City, Mexico (June 5-6), Nashville, TN (June 14-15), Chicago, IL (June 21-22), and Orlando, FL (November 2007, exact date tbd).
