The award winning Robert Juliat DALIS 860 LED cyclorama batten fixture has been added to the extensive lighting inventory at White Light as Technical Director Dave Isherwood explains, “The decision to invest in the Robert Juliat DALIS batten lights was part of our strategy of continually updating and renewing the WL catalogue. The product is a natural progression of what has come before and, as a result, there is a vast improvement in technology. After seeing the capabilities of the DALIS I had no hesitation in placing an order through Ambersphere Solutions.”
With a total of eight coloured LED emitters (red, green, blue, royal blue, amber cyan, warm and cool white), the 860 opens the door to an extraordinarily broad palette of colour choices as Isherwood acknowledges, “This is a unique product that doesn’t really have a rival on the market. Robert Juliat have incorporated a great colour range, superb brightness and excellent dimming facilities along with other clever features such as the fanless cooling system which provides silent operation, a perfect solution for many of our clients.”
The DALIS 860s are currently hard at work on the latest production from Matthew Bourne of The Red Shoes with the lighting designed by Paule Constable. Already recognised as an outstanding production (nominated for the Manchester Theatre Awards 2017; winner of Best Entertainment in the Olivier Award 2017), the production moves from Sadlers Wells to Manchester and then Birmingham to the USA which WL are also supplying.
Earlier in the year the fixtures were busy servicing the seasonal pantomimes such as Snow White at the New Victoria Theatre, Woking along with the critically acclaimed Echo’s End with a lighting design from Howard Hudson at the Salisbury Playhouse.
“As with all Robert Juliat fixtures, the DALIS 860s are a quality product and we are confident that the fixtures will continue to be drawn on by lighting designers for a long time to come,”
