AC-ET Appointed a UK Distributor for Lycian Stage Lighting

1st April 2011

A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd's Lighting division has been appointed as a UK distributor for Lycian Stage Lighting, the well known US manufacturer of high quality followspots for the touring, live events, theatre and broadcast industries.

Specialising in the design and manufacture of followspots for over 45 years, Lycian has developed one of the largest and most popular selling followspot ranges in the entertainment sector.

In particular, AC-ET will focus on Lycian's innovative and hugely flexible M2 modular followspot systems. This is comprised of modules that can be easily assembled into different configurations and tailored to an exact specification, or changed and modified according to varying needs or environments, providing a perfect solution for all types of rental, staging and installed applications.

The M2 uses condenser optics and has a smooth, flat beam. Features includes an integrated frost filter, variable focal optics, Lycian flip lens, automatic, self cancelling colour boom, dichroic rings, independent horizontal and vertical side shutters and a fine focus control.

M2 is built on a chassis that allows for interchangeable lens modules and lamp-houses to be fitted quickly and effortlessly by being slid on and off the body, and can therefore go from a 1200 watt short throw to a 2500 watt medium or long throw in minutes! This makes it a truly unique and versatile product, with 12 different options and in a class of its own, The M2 is also available with magnetic or electronic ballasts.

Both AC-ET and its North American sister company, A.C. Lighting Inc., have had a longstanding relationship with Lycian Stage Lighting.

Says Lycian's Director of Sales, Steve Lerman, "AC-ET has a tremendous technical knowledge base on all the products it represents, plus a great reach and much respect in the marketplace." He believes that the combination of having a 'native' presence with which end users are so familiar and the value and versatility of Lycian's products will enable them to reach a new clientele in the UK marketplace.

AC-ET's Northern Sales Director, Jonathan Walters, comments, "We're delighted to add Lycian to our product portfolio - it is a premium lighting brand and a perfect complement to all the others that we distribute. The M2 has proven to be a very robust product that's very popular with rental companies, so we look forward to working with Lycian Stage Lighting and getting some very positive results."

In addition to the M2 system, Lycian's current range of followspots consists of 14 “conventional” fixtures utilising Tungsten, HTI, HMI/MSR and Xenon lightsources. The new 1295, which operates with 3K and 4K xenon lamps, is the company's brightest followspot to date.

A.C. Lighting is a division of A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd.
