Limelite Lighting is one of the region’s largest providers of full lighting, sound & AV design, installation, and equipment hire services, offering a vast selection of cutting-edge equipment for productions.
After experiencing a massive increase in demand for LED Profile moving lights both for its own project productions and those of its equipment rental customers, Limelite Lighting Project Manager / Director, Matthew Mountier decided to research the best options for fixtures with CYM and shutter capabilities.
After shortlisting several models, Matthew approached Ben Steppenbeck in AC-ET’s Lighting division to discuss these options. This led to Limelite Lighting purchasing 13 Vari-Lite VL2600 Profile fixtures.
He commented: “Our decision eventually came down to the Vari-Lite unit’s build quality, cost, and our experience of customer service from the manufacturer. We’re really pleased with their performance.”
Matthew has also been impressed by the service he’s received from AC-ET.
He remarked: “Our staff have have worked with Ben and AC-ET over the past five years and whilst it is a big organisation, we’ve been impressed by the personal level of customer service it delivers. Ben goes out of his way for us, often taking calls at the weekend to help us out when needed. This round the clock support makes a big difference in our line of work.”
The VL2600 combines Vari-Lite quality with the latest LED technology, all engineered to deliver the best possible package to the mid-sized show lighting segment. Producing 19,000 lumens of high CCT, high contrast light output from its 550W light engine, with a big zoom range of 7-48 degrees, the impressive features set also includes a CMY colour system with variable CTO adjustment, and a full wipe framing shutter.
