Solaris™ Quasar Strobes Blast UK's So You Think You Can Dance

Solaris LogoSeries Two of BBC One's hit show So You Think You Can Dance concluded another successful season this month. Pushed to the limit for eight weeks, the four finalists and the set lighting proved impressive, dependable, and resilient to the very end.

Four ultra-bright Solaris Quasar 15K strobes provided visual punch over the entire season. “The Solaris strobes performed flawlessly for the entire run,” says Lighting Designer Mark Kenyon. “Their tremendous brightness, even field, and surprisingly long constant-on time gives me a new and effective creative tool. They allow me to create a visual impact the audience can feel.”

Mark Kenyon's TV credits include The X Factor, Push the Button, The Eurovision Song Contest, The Brit Awards, The BAFTA Television & Film Awards, Children in Need, Comic Relief, and more.

Solaris Quasar strobes were also featured on the UK hit show Strictly Come Dancing and the American 44th Annual CMA Awards. Solaris models range from 35 to 85,000 Watts and represent the ultimate in strobe technology.
