San Antonio-based Spectrum Lighting Inc. recently sold 16 Robert Juliat 634 LED Profile Spots for use in the teaching auditorium/conference center at Doctors Hospital at Renaissance in Edinburg, Texas.
Doctors Hospital at Renaissance is a full-service medical and surgical facility providing healthcare to the residents of the Rio Grande Valley. Its teaching auditorium and conference center is the site of continuing education for physicians.
Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon and Williams (WJHW) served as the theatrical consultant, system designer and lighting designer for the space with Texas Scenic the installing contractor. "Every fixture in the facility is an LED, so when we were looking for a fixture for Front of House, Robert Juliat's LED profiles provided a perfect solution over comparable products," says WJHW's Rene Garza. "We were looking for long life, smooth dimming and good quality of light. I was pleasantly surprised that the RJ 634 was able to provide the remarkably bright output required."
The RJ 634 LED Profile Spot is the first product of its type to achieve significant output and framing/projection ability from an extremely low-powered LED lightsource. While retaining all the optical and operational features of other Robert Juliat profiles, the RJ 634 is the most versatile, cost-effective and safe fixture on the market. It features extra-long LED life, low heat output, a built-in dimmer, and sharp shutter and gobo projections. It offers a rapid and easy set up.
Robin Crews, lighting control specialist at Spectrum Lighting Inc., assisted in the decision-making process. "Everything I heard about the job indicated that RJ 634 was the right product to use," he says. "The owner wanted to use primarily LED fixtures and something that was fairly theatrical because the space is a conference center/auditorium with a stage area. The lighting fixture needed to be flexible enough so people could come in, focus a few lights and hold a conference or do a presentation. The beam characteristics of the RJ 634 were really ideal for this scenario."
Rene Garza reports that the complement of the RJ 634 is "working great. They are amazingly bright. The owner is very pleased with them."
John R. Garza is the facility manager and Joseph D. Harris the technician at the teaching auditorium/conference center at Doctors Hospital at Renaissance.
