White Light on Display at PLASA Show 2015
This year has seen complete production solution specialist White Light further develop its wide range of services. Over the past nine months, the company has not only forged its own dedicated audio department but also acquired Shock Solutions, a forerunner in the fields of LED lighting and audio-visual equipment solutions. Similarly, the company has invested heavily in the very latest technology and provided the production support on a whole range of events from concert touring, to corporate events, to theatre shows, to venue launches. This vast array of newly acquired skills and state-of-the-art equipment will be on display at one of the biggest entertainment technology events of the year: the PLASA Show 2015.
Taking place from 4th- 6th October, the PLASA Show is an annual exhibition that connects the international live entertainment technology industry. It is organised by PLASA, the leading international trade association for entertainment technologies. The event not only presents ground-breaking technology and exciting new launches but also features focused hubs for networking and product demonstrations. WL will be exhibiting at stand C30 and showcasing the very latest in lighting, audio, effects and AV solutions. The equipment on show includes the ArKaos MediaMaster 4.2 with new Cue Player and Video Mapper along with Capture Argo Visualisation software. Christie’s new Q-Series Projector will be in action along with the UK’s first glimpse of the brand new Boxer 4K30 Projector which WL has just taken stock of. ESD Lumen’s 2.5mm Pitch-High Resolution ‘Mini Series’ Video Wall will also be showcased. A number of audio manufactures will be present, representing system controls, loud speakers and amplifiers. These include EM Acoustics, Full Fat Audio, Yamaha and other manufacturers. Andy Hook, WL’s Technical Solutions Director, comments: “Throughout the year, we work closely with several manufacturers and their products to really get the most out of the projects we work on. The PLASA Show gives us the opportunity to showcase this state-of-the-art technology and explain how it can provide creative solutions for a variety of our clients”.
Also on display in the WL zone is a range of equipment from leading manufacturers of AV and lighting which includes Altman, JB Lighting, LSC Lighting, CORE Lighting, Look Solutions and Wireless Solutions. Bryan Raven, WL’s Managing Director, comments: “We are coming to this year’s PLASA Show as the complete production solution specialist, confident that we can provide production solutions to any client for any occasion. Whilst we look forward to catching up with old friends, we are also really excited to show potential clients exactly what we can offer”. Those attending the PLASA show are invited to join WL for a drink on the evening of Monday 5 October from 5:00 – 8:00pm where there will be refreshments and the chance to catch up with the WL team.
As WL continues to grow, this has allowed the company to work on more projects this year than ever before. Whether these are concert tours such as the one-off 50 Cent gig at London’s O2 Arena, sporting occasions such as the Rugby World Cup, historic events such as the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary along with theatrical productions in the West End, the company’s expert teams can now oversee a whole host of different projects. This year has also seen the company being appointed as Production Service Partner at Central Hall Westminster and it has also helped install the very latest AV and lighting equipment at venues such as Thorpe Park and the Barbican Centre.
With the PLASA Show only two weeks away, WL is fully prepared to be on display at one of the world’s largest technology conferences. With a greater number of exhibitors, seminars and expected attendees than ever before, this year’s PLASA Show promises to be one of the biggest yet. Bryan states: “Having showcased at PLASA throughout its 38 year history, we’ve seen first-hand how it has continuously grown. WL has grown at a similar rate hence this year is a fitting opportunity to show clients exactly what we can offer them as a company dedicated to providing technical excellence and creative solutions”.
