Lightfactor - PLASA 2011


Leading UK professional lighting sales company Lightfactor will feature the latest products from its raft of high profile international brands on an action-packed stand - including DTS, LDR, Integrated Technologies and VXCO.

Lightfactor's experienced and informed sales team will be on hand to demonstrate all products and talk authoritatively about projects and specifications.


New from DTS are the NICK LED colour wash fixtures and the high powered compact JACK Spot moving lights ...... and there will also be a few new surprise products.

The DTS NICK 600 WASH ZOOM is a self-contained compact dimensioned high-output LED wash moving head with a 13.5° - 40° motorized zoom and a fast and silent Pan/Tilt. It is among the brightest compact LED projectors on the market with a luminous flux of 9.750 Lumens. A powerful colour synthesis engine offers 16 million colours, a linear colour temperature of between 2800°K and 6500°K and two colour mixing modes - RGBW and CMY. Its attractive aesthetics make it good for numerous installation applications including retail, commercial, heritage, exhibitions, clubs, restaurants, buildings, and monuments and is also ideal for concerts shows and live events.

DTS's JACK Spot moving light is a high powered, compact, light weight fixture using an advanced MSD Platinum 5R189 discharge lightsource and featuring a wide excursion motorised zoom and ultra fast and silent pan/tilt. With a luminosity of 28,000 Lux at a distance of 5 metres and uniform projection, plus a 5 - 35 degree zoom range, it is perfect for large shows and stages. It has a combination of sharp overlapping gobo projections, a variety of colours and split-colour beams and a host of other eye-catching effects.


As Novalight's UK distributor, Lightfactor has enjoyed considerable success with its high powered High-Ground and Nova-Flower 2K range of moving lights, which have been used on many high profile tours and TV shows including U2's 360, X-Factor and the Paul O'Grady show.

The Nova-Flower 2K fixture was originally developed specially for show designer and LD Willie Williams for the U2 "360" tour and then became a production model. It is a mega-bright fully programmable ‘flower effect' fixture with DMX controllable pan, tilt, colour and shutter, along with other standard features. Using a 2000W light source, this moving yoke fixture offers CMY mixing, rotating reflector (in both directions), pan/tilt and remote lamp re-strike. Nova-Flower can be used on the floor or mounted on truss, and can also be run in stand-alone mode, programmed via the display buttons on its base. It has a weather-resistant IP 43 rating.

The DMX-controlled Novalight High-Ground utilises a 2000W MSR light source and outputs 174,000 lumens. The moving yoke version pans 540° in 3.2 seconds and tilts 262° in 2.9 seconds, making it a very agile fixture. The unit offers five dichroic colours and white, plus shutter and strobe effects; another advantage is that there's no central black hole when the beam is opened to maximum.

From Integrated Technologies, Lightfactor will highlight the latest LED drivers, which can be phase dimmed and controlled via DMX or DALI protocols.

Lightfactor will showcase Swiss manufacturer VXCO's latest control software, which has multiple new and flexible features, and will also feature their new, low-priced entry level 128 channel DMX dongle which is upgradable to 512 channels when the time comes to move up.

Examples on the booth from Italian manufacturer LDR's extensive ranges of theatrical and architainment luminaires will include follow spots, profiles, fresnels and PC fixtures, plus pole operated moving yokes, colour scrollers and dimming shutters.
