WorldStage Expands Lighting Inventory with Latest in Wireless DMX Technology, LED Fixtures and Lighting Control

WorldStage’s latest acquisitions to its broad and deep inventory of lighting products reinforces the company’s leadership role as a lighting supplier for the live staging, theatrical, corporate and broadcast markets. WorldStage is the new brand for Scharff Weisberg and Video Applications.

“We continue to embrace new technologies, such as the latest in wireless DMX devices and the growing array of LED fixtures, as part of our commitment to offer customers the best and most innovative lighting products available today,” says vice president of operations Josh Nissim. “We have also expanded our supply of the popular grandMA2 lighting consoles.”

WorldStage is the first in the New York market to invest in City Theatrical’s new SHoW DMX Neo and SHoW DMX SHoW Baby, which generated a lot of buzz at the recent PLASA 2011. This early adoption puts WorldStage in the forefront of metropolitan-area lighting suppliers – a position it’s very much accustomed to taking.

SHoW DMX Neo features the extremely high data fidelity that City Theatrical’s award-winning SHoW DMX is famous for, as well as incredibly fast latency to ensure that wired and wireless DMX sources will appear exactly alike on a production. It features the extensive on-board user interface that professionals prefer and advanced Ethernet gateway functions; an RDM controller, provided with the transceiver, permits laptop monitoring.

Another addition to the company’s lighting inventory is Clay Paky’s popular Sharpy, a small 189W moving head with a brightness usually achievable only with far greater wattages. Weighing in at 16 kg, Sharpy produces a perfectly parallel, laser-like beam, which is sharply defined and free of any halo or discoloration around the edges. It offers 14 different colors and 17 gobos for beam shaping and mid-air effects. With its light weight and modest footprint, Sharpy is small enough to be fitted anywhere.

At LDI WorldStage acquired the Martin MAC Aura, the first compact LED moving head wash light with zoom. The new fixture offers eye-candy aura effects and also functions as a highly capable single-lens wash with fully pre-mixed color. A groundbreaking optical system combines multicolor LEDs with backlight aura color mixing to produce an all new visual palette in a compact, lightweight unit with high efficiency and low power consumption.

WorldStage has also purchased the VARI*LITE VLX Wash Luminaire, which provides all the benefits of LED technology and the best visual performance characteristics of traditional automated fixtures. VLX boasts stunning colors and intensity, multi-year source life and high reliability. Combined with low energy consumption and maintenance costs, the VARI*LITE VLX Wash resets the bar for all other LED fixtures.

Lastly, in terms of lighting fixtures, WorldStage acquired Prism Projection’s RevEAL Studio, a solid-state LED alternative to conventional Fresnel-type fixtures that vastly reduces power consumption, heat and maintenance without compromising lighting design. RevEAL Studio provides high lumen output, unparalleled color rendering, tunable CCT from 2800-8000K, a wide color palette with repeatability, and TrueSource color management technology for guaranteed beam quality.

WorldStage also took delivery of more lighting consoles adding two grandMA2 light and two grandMA2 ultra-light control systems and greatly expanding its desk inventory.

WorldStage Inc., the company created by the merger of Scharff Weisberg Inc and Video Applications Inc, continues a thirty-year legacy of providing clients the widest variety of entertainment technology coupled with conscientious and imaginative engineering services. WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting equipment and services to the event, theatrical, broadcast and brand experience markets nationally and internationally.
