The Warfield Enters a New Era with Philips Vari-Lite VLZ

The Warfield Theatre in downtown San Francisco has upgraded its stage lighting with the new Philips Vari-Lite VLZ Spot fixture, plus wash lights from Signify’s Showline range. The choice of the VLZ Spots, along with the SL BEAM 500fx and 300fx wash fixtures, meets all these criteria and is paying multiple dividends for the Warfield. “The LED sources mean a drastic decrease in power consumption, heat generation and, perhaps most importantly to management, the possible zeroing out of our lamp restocking budget,” said the Warfield’s lighting director Rob Robertson. Robertson said, “The dimming is fantastic. In particular I’ve been impressed by the unsurpassed brightness for an LED source, the bestin– class optical range and the quality and clarity of the light output.” He added, “We were drawn to this as the only LED spot in this class of light output. Others in the market have a robust feature set, but lack the output, which we felt was important in a venue of our size. Having high-output spot fixtures over our stage gives us greater flexibility and variety in lighting positions and looks. They also cut down on time taken to focus, giving the LD more programming time.”
