This year Portman Lights released its newest product, the P1 mini LED, the latest in its highly specialised range of products. Exhibiting a tungsten look and retro style to match Portman Lights’ existing product line but this time with full LED. Arranged in the same configuration and housing as the original P1 Retro Lamp, P1 mini LED combines 2 layers of light sources: a special 1800K linear filament and an RGBW glow that adds colour and enhances the creative possibilities of the new fixture. “We are very excited to bring our new P1 mini to the market at Prolight + Sound,” said Portman Lights’ Business Development Manager, Dominik Zimakowski. “This is a ground-breaking product for us because, for the first
time, we have produced a full LED stage lighting fixture whilst retaining the truly vintage, halogen look. P1 mini LED provides that unique Portman Lights look that is so in demand for television and live performance yet answers the growing demand for LED light sources.” Powersoft had a full suite of industry audio solutions, including the brand new X4L amplifier; the LOTO DSP 1-2 in / 4 out Advanced DSP board; the DSP-Lite ETH 1-2 in / 3 out DSP interface; and an update for its Snapshot Selector mobile app. As the latest addition to Powersoft’s already enviable range of amplifiers, the X4L, has been created to drive modern high SPL woofers that require very high voltage in order to deliver their full potential. The product is specifically designed to deliver up to 300 V (peak) to the loudspeakers, which translates to more audible impact from the music itself. PR LIGHTING displayed its highly efficient short-arc metal halide lamp, the XR 1700 Framing (PR-2887) which represented PR Lighting’s most powerful framing fixture yet and the flagship in its range, producing unprecedented light output. Featuring four framing blades, it delivers a range of graphics in different sizes and shapes and a further four framing blades to give a full curtain effect. The whole module offers endless rotation to provide unlimited versatility - a major breakthrough.
