On a recent week long job at Maida Vale, DPL Technical Director Pete Watts had the challenge of limited budget, multiple acts and a very short turnaround between them. Each band/ artist was to have their own unique look and feel to their individual sessions, which  were to be broadcast live and remain online. A staple item amongst Pete's kit list was the VL 3000 spot. The variety of artists meant that the lighting rig really had to work hard to add individuality to each session - the VL3000 is still one of the most popular and in demand lamps in the market and can be a rock 'n' roll lamp one minute and a steady, accurate focused lamp the next. The VL3000 Spots can do all of this and more plus the speed of all it's features mean for a simple transition between acts. The VARI*LITE VL3000 Spot luminaire features a 6:1 zoom optics, CYM color mixing, variable CTO color temperature correction, a six-position color wheel, three gobo/effects wheels, a beam size iris and separate dimmer and ultra-fast strobe mechanisms. A standard pallet of gobos, effects and colors is provided with the unit. Custom gobos, effects and color are available. An upper enclosure houses the control electronics as well as the arc power supply for the 1200 watt short arc lamp. The arc power supply is power factor corrected for efficient power distribution. It can be controlled from a wide variety of DMX512 consoles. The luminaire is the same size as the VL3000 Wash luminaire, providing a consistent hang configuration and appearance no matter which luminaire type is required. Key Features:
  • 1200W short arc lamp
