LED Source Partners With ENERGY STAR®.

(Wellington, Fla.)—Due to increasing demand for quality, energy efficient products and services and a desire to live more environmentally-responsible, LED Source® – an international LED lighting solutions provider – announces its partnership with ENERGY STAR®. The goal of the partnership is to promote and solidify LED Source’s dedication to protecting our climate through its education, products and services. LED Source and its 15 franchise offices across North America and in the Caribbean earned the coveted ENERGY STAR Retailer seal for its efforts in effectively aligning its practices with the U.S. Department of Energy and initiating a movement toward energy efficient LED lighting.
“We are thrilled to partner with ENERGY STAR and continue promoting change, saving energy and educating consumers on the benefits of quality LED lighting that protect our climate,” said Marcel Fairbairn, president of LED Source.

LED Source specializes in design, support, development, project management and financing through its Retrofit, Architectural and Entertainment Divisions. The company supplies LED products around the world to commercial office spaces, schools, churches, theaters, art galleries, restaurants and nightclubs, special events, residential and landscape lighting and much more. LED lighting is a quickly evolving technology that can save up to 85 percent of the energy used by incandescent bulbs and up to 50 percent of the energy used by fluorescents.

Aside from the company’s dedication to promote energy efficiency through its products and services, LED Source also maintains a high standard at its own home office. Earlier this year, the company moved its corporate headquarters into a brand new 13,000 square-foot facility that utilizes only ENERGY STAR and Design Lights Consortium certified LED products. The move helped LED Source reduce costs and conserve energy while protecting our Earth. Celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and Wellington’s mayor, Bob Margolis, the building became the first all-LED facility of its size in the area.

“It’s important for our customers to identify the new ENERGY STAR seal on our website as our dedication to the public to be part of the solution toward a greener planet,” said Fairbairn.

Established in 1992, ENERGY STAR is a joint program with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. Partnerships with organizations, such as LED Source, have been instrumental in ENERGY STAR’s success in boosting the adoption of energy efficient products, practices, and services.

I’m confident that my experience in the industry, especially my work on energy saving solutions for commercial lighting, will prove to be the perfect fit for this company.”
Lindemann’s experience and knowledge extend to every level of the lighting market, including incentive programs, product selection and management, new technology and design. “My goal is to create realistic and responsible lighting solutions for any facility,” he said.

VIVID Lighting Solutions Chooses Reflection LEDko

(Wellington, Fla.)—Reflection LEDko by Coemar, the first LED profile delivering both Soft and Hard Edge profile optics, is the newest product to be added to the inventory at VIVID Lighting Solutions, a company that provides environmentally-friendly lighting products and solutions to Vancouver’s large corporate and event market. VIVID Lighting Solutions uses Reflection LEDko lighting in the design of feature events that range from full-stage concerts and intimate corporate galas to architectural and private rentals.

VIVID Lighting Solutions provides solely LED-based lighting products to create custom-tailored lighting designs that create visually stunning effects. Because VIVID Lighting Solutions works in the events industry, installations are almost always temporary. Since fixtures are being installed and taken down frequently, lighting options like Reflection LEDko and other LED lighting products that can handle being on the road and set up quickly and efficiently multiple times are a must.

“Our clients often seek out eco-friendly options, which is why we house an exclusive inventory of LED products,” said Philip Guhl, owner and lighting designer of VIVID Lighting Solutions. “Adding Coemar’s Reflection LEDko to our product offerings was a no brainer—the low heat makes it favorable in any environment and our clients love the low cost of printed custom images on overhead transparencies. Fitted with traditional ETC accessories, this is a fixture that VIVID Lighting Solutions will continue to promote for years.”

Reflection LEDko is a revolutionary new LED fixture and the first LED profile capable of projecting a soft-edged profile light with no reduction in light intensity due to additional filters. It is also the first LED profile that can be used in the same way as traditional profiles and can obtain any color, tone, shade and white light.

“We had already used Reflection LEDkos many times in the past with printed gobos of company logos and have had very satisfying results,” Guhl said. “We made Reflection LEDkos a permanent part of our inventory because we are always the first company in our region to carry the latest types of LED lighting, and we take pride in offering our clients the latest in technology and the best products for their needs.”

Applying the Reflection LED technology as a retrofit makes it possible to reduce energy consumption from 500-650 Watts to 150 Watts. The LED lamps last up to 50,000 hours without loss of brightness, thus eliminating maintenance costs associated with traditional profiles.

“We’re proud to supply VIVID Lighting Solutions with Reflection LEDko lighting solutions,” said Grif Palmer, vice president of sales for LED Source, the exclusive Coemar distributor in North America. “Reflection LEDko is both portable and environmentally-friendly, making it the perfect lighting product to suit VIVID Lighting Solution’s needs.”

Because LEDs do not emit heat, Reflection LEDko is capable of utilizing images or gobos created with any standard printer and a transparency sheet. This technology allows you to project any image such as a corporate logo quickly and without cost, while also eliminating the entire gobo buying process, which was previously dependant on glass or metal patterns.

Reflection LEDko is one fixture that can virtually eliminate or significantly reduce all costs related to lamps, dimmers, scrollers, gel filters, heat, cabling, electricity and manpower. All LEDko series fixtures feature electronic 16-bit dimming, flicker-free operation with DMX controllable LED frequency from 500 to 5000 Hz and a bi-directional DMX512.

LEDko Provides Energy-Efficient Lighting Solution to Green AV Professionals

(Wellington, Fla.)—Reflection LEDko by Coemar, the first LED profile delivering both Soft Profile and Hard Edge Profile using mix-and-match optics and state-of-the-art LED lighting technology, helps significantly reduce energy costs and environmental impact compared to traditional lighting sources used among the audiovisual (AV) industry. LED lighting is the most energy-efficient lighting solution currently available that is both fiscally smart and ecologically sound when compared to both Tungsten Halogen and Compact Fluorescent lighting (CFL). As “green” trends within the audiovisual industry continue to proliferate, Reflection LEDko – distributed exclusively in North America by international LED lighting supplier LED Source® – becomes an increasingly valuable solution for AV professionals.

Furthermore, Reflection LEDko is the only type of LED lighting that can obtain any color tone, shade and white light while being used in the same way as traditional profiles—making it the ideal “green” choice for a variety of audiovisual needs including sound, video lighting, display and projection systems.

“As the multibillion dollar audiovisual industry continues to build an increasing commitment to environmental responsibility, the future is with Reflection LEDko,” said Marcel Fairbairn, president and CEO of LED Source. “Applying the Reflection LED technology as a retrofit makes it possible to reduce energy consumption from 500-650 Watts to 150 Watts, saving enormous amounts of energy and money. The LED lamps last up to 50,000 hours without any loss of brightness, thus eliminating maintenance costs associated with traditional lighting profiles.”

Because LEDs emit virtually no heat, Reflection LEDko is capable of utilizing images or gobos created with any standard printer and a transparency sheet. This technology allows you to project any image such as a corporate logo quickly and without cost, while also eliminating the entire gobo buying process, which was previously dependent on glass and metal patterns.
Reflection LEDko is one fixture that can eliminate or significantly reduce all costs related to lamps, dimmers, scrollers, gel filters, heat, cabling, electricity and manpower. All LEDko series fixtures feature electronic 16-bit dimming, flicker-free operation with DMX controllable LED frequency from 500 to 5000 Hz and a bi-directional DMX512.

Christien Methot, the principal lighting designer for Design One Corporation, is the head lighting designer for all NASDAQ broadcast facilities in Times Square. Methot replaced the aging Tungsten Halogen and Compact Fluorescent lighting in the NASDAQ facilities with Reflection LEDko lighting technology to reduce maintenance costs.

“Once we installed and focused the LEDko lighting, I was amazed at the brightness and the even beam of the PC lens,” Methot said. “The LEDko fixtures mixed with a few other LED products have finally brought my client’s facilities into the 21st century.”

Reflection LEDko is assembled conforming to the ISO 14001’s (International Organization for Standardization) environmental management system requirements and operates in respect to the OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Advisory Services) standards for occupational health and safety management systems. This ultimately creates a higher efficiency of the system overall, greatly reducing the impact on the environment.

LED Source® and Coemar Team Up to Award $20,000 in LED Lighting to One Lucky Theater for the LEDko Challenge

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company (CSC) of Ohio was named the grand prize winner Jan. 31 of the LED Source® and Coemar LEDko Challenge, and will receive a complete LED lighting makeover worth $20,000. CSC was chosen among dozens of staging, education, studio, installation, and theater professionals throughout North America who participated in the contest by submitting a video of their lackluster lighting systems to be considered for a complete LED lighting upgrade. As the grand prize winner, CSC—which employs a resident ensemble of actors that put on nine main stage productions seen by more than 25,000 audience members each year—will have their aging, energy-draining stage lighting replaced with eight Reflection LEDko fixtures by Coemar, the sponsor of the contest.

The LEDko Challenge, which launched in October 2011, was created by LED Source in celebration of the launch of the new Reflection LEDko series by Italy-based Coemar—a world leader in lighting for the entertainment industry. As the exclusive distributor of Coemar LED products in North America, LED Source wanted to get the word out about the launch and award a deserving organization with the latest in LED profile technology.

“Although we received several outstanding video submissions, the group at CSC went above and beyond,” says Marcel Fairbairn, president and CEO of LED Source. “We can’t wait to deliver the new Reflection LEDko fixtures this month and show what a difference the right lighting can make in this setting.”

CSC was chosen as the winner among the top five finalists for their submission of a creative and humorous video demonstrating their “ancient” lighting system, which theater employees said often caused blackouts and delays during rehearsals and performances.

“Our current lights are basically the SUV’s of the lighting world,” said Brian Phillips, producing artistic director of the CSC. “We are so grateful for this opportunity, as it will change our lives and our art in a profound and meaningful way. The unique challenges of our theater space make CSC, LED Source and Coemar a perfect fit.”
Finalists were selected by a panel of experts made up of both LED Source and Coemar senior management, and the grand prize winner was chosen by fans on the Reflection LEDko Facebook page through a voting process. As the contest winner, power outages and outdated stage lighting will be a thing of the past for CSC, which has been producing classic Shakespeare performances since 1993 and educates more than 20,000 theater students annually through its educational outreach programs. LED lighting will allow CSC, which produces classic multi-scene adventure plays, to seamlessly transition from a battle scene to a banquet in the blink of an eye.

Reflection LEDko is a revolutionary new LED fixture and the first LED profile delivering both Soft Profile and Hard Edge Profile using mix and match optics. With this new technology, Coemar has created the first LED profile capable of projecting soft-edged profile light that can be used in the same way as traditional profiles and can obtain any color tone, shade and white light.

Applying the Reflection LED technology as a retrofit makes it possible to reduce energy consumption from 500-650 Watts to 150 Watts. The LED lamps last up to 50,000 hours without loss of brightness, thus eliminating maintenance costs associated with traditional profiles.

Because LEDs do not emit heat, Reflection LEDko is capable of utilizing images or gobos created with any standard printer and a transparency sheet. This technology allows users to project any image quickly and without cost, while also eliminating the entire gobo buying process, which was previously dependant on glass or metal patterns.

All LEDko series fixtures feature electronic 16-bit dimming, flicker-free operation with DMX controllable LED frequency from 500 to 5000 Hz and a bi-directional DMX512.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide the CSC with the revolutionary Reflection LEDko LED profile fixtures, which enhance the stage experience by providing an energy and space-efficient lighting solution,” said Fausto Orsatti, vice president of sales and marketing at Coemar. “LED lighting will allow for more lighting versatility and no dimmers, resulting in a more streamlined stage production.”

The Reflection LEDko fixtures will debut on the CSC stage in time for either the late winter production of “Sense and Sensibility” or an early spring performance of “The Grapes of Wrath.” This is CSC’s first lighting upgrade in five years.
