Manufacturers Set to Flaunt New Gear at Kinetic Lighting's Fourth Annual Open House

Kinetic Lighting will host its fourth annual open house on May 10, from 3pm-8pm, and will showcase some of the lighting industry's most cutting-edge products. Attendees of the free event will see side-by-side product comparisons and attend training and presentations.

LEE Filters brand reps will be on hand to demonstrate LED Filter Gel Range, marking the line's first hands-on introduction in the U.S.

Other product demos will include:

* A sneak peak at what are being billed as some of the smallest LED lights on the market
* ETC's new Source Four LED

* Vari-Lite's new VL880 Spot, which Kinetic's crew will fire up next to other moving lights for comparison

* An LED cyc light comparison with models from Altman and Strand

* New dimmable LED bulbs designed for theatrical luminaries

Wireless battery-operated LED fixtures

In addition to showcasing new lighting gear, Kinetic will also provide GrandMA training (levels one and two) in conjunction with ACT Lighting. Breakout sessions will include presentations by lighting designers, technicians, and other industry pros.

“We began hosting this event in the depths of the recession and the feedback from guests was so overwhelming that we've made it an annual tradition,” said Kinetic President David Rosen. “This year, we're opting for side-by-side product comparisons, and forgoing the trade-show format of years past. And we added a new educational element with training and breakout sessions.”

Keeping the energy up, a raffle will offer attendees a chance to win a third-generation iPad, with Kinetic donating 100 percent of raffle proceeds to USC Norris Cancer Center. The Greasy Wiener truck and B Sweet Mobile dessert truck will fuel the crowd.
