We wanted to test them live before the next season started in October”, indicates Mr Pierre Heyligen, Managing Director of Lumière et Son Paris. The use of daylight luminaires is a new trend in fashion shows, recreating the conditions of a photographic studio. The OneLight PAR and Fresnel are particularly suitable in this application. Installation is as simple as tungsten luminaires: No head to ballast cable, nor ballast to hide! In addition, the DMX function allows easy control of the whole system by the control desk.
