COLORado™ 1 Tour wash lights lit over 160 feet of truss, the stage and runway. Models from Saks Fifth Avenue as well as children with Down syndrome served as models during the fashion show. The television show Entertainment Tonight covered the event.
Line Level ShowTek produces shows which are to be filmed and used on broadcast television. The LED COLORado™ 1 Tour wash lights were chosen because they do not flicker on camera. The production company has doubled their inventory of the fixture citing their brilliant output.
“Time and time again, the CHAUVET® COLORado™ LED fixtures continue to raise the bar in LED lighting,” said Paul Kocel, owner of Soul Fuel Music also of Denver, Colo., who supplied the fixtures. “They shine brighter, use less energy, offer more options and are overall the best value in professional LED lighting on the market today. We are proud to offer them to all our clients. They never leave us in the dark!"
