Philips Vari-Lite Combines Technologies in VL4000 Spot
Design enhancements combine VL4000 and VL4000GT into one powerful luminaire for specification.
Philips Vari-Lite's new VL4000 Spot Luminaire is improved to meet customer demand, the company reports.
Philips Vari-Lite announces what it calls “a significant change” to the recently debuted VL4000 Spot Luminaire. The high output capability of the original VL4000GT Spot has now been engineered into the VL4000 Spot to provide design specifiers and end-users with one powerful, dynamic model. By working with Philips lamp technology, the new VL4000 Spot reportedly retains the same design features but will now output at a greater level than originally announced -- with the ability to achieve more than 33,000 lumens from the 1,200W lamp. In addition, a new selectable Studio mode allows designers and technicians to reduce the noise level of the luminaire and operate with an output of 25,000 lumens when desired.
“While the original plan was to have two different models, we listened to our customer base and managed to facilitate the features of both fixtures into a single VL4000 Spot luminaire,” says Brad Schiller, Philips Vari-Lite product segment manager. “By providing a single luminaire that is capable of meeting the original specifications of both models, we truly are providing a luminaire without compromises.”

The VL4000 Spot Luminaire is based on a Philips 1,200W Fast-Fit lamp and includes a 9-47 degree zoom, the all new Infinity color mix system, dual rotating gobo wheels, two adjustable animation wheels, framing shutters, an independent rotating prism with divergence control, variable frost and more. The VL4000 Spot luminaire was created using state-of-the-art technology to bring new features and innovation to productions around the world, Philips Vari-Lite reports. With low ambient noise, high lumen output, advanced optics and a full feature set, the VL4000 Spot redefines automated lighting by offering unlimited possibilities without compromises, the company says.
