Essential's open days promote Scenic LEDs

Tony Hall.

29 June 2007

UK - Essential Lighting Group last week hosted the industry at its West London headquarters to demonstrate its recent investment in Barco MiTrix and MiStrip Scenic LED fixtures.

Tony 'Turbo' Hall transformed Essential's demonstration and preproduction suite in to a full-size event with creative use of MiTrix and MiStrip fixtures including a wave shaped ceiling piece, moving screens and reveal pieces, multilayered alcoves revealed and concealed though the semi-transparent scenic LED screens.

The event was very well attended with hundreds of lighting designers, production managers, trade customers and set designers getting the opportunity to see the equipment in action, and get a hands-on look at the components and how the system is constructed.

Essential Lighting recently became the world's first lighting rental company stocking Barco MiTrix and MiStrip Scenic LED fixtures. MiTrix is a lightweight, bright and highly transparent LED module with 16 by 8 pixels and a pixel pitch of 24mm. MiStrip, a linear pixel strip with 13.25mm inline pixel pitch, can be freely spaced to suit the resolution required, offering immense flexibility in a wide variety of applications.

The fixtures are IP65 rated and are extremely bright allowing the designer to easily create suspended or ground supported semi-transparent displays, or dynamically integrate a scenic LED effect with any pixel pitch, into the set and space available.
