That notion first took root in the late ‘70s when engineers developed

a color changing light fixture using dichroic filters and later added two

motors to make the light move as well. Genesis wowed the world with

the first VARI*LITE Series 100 system consisting of 50 VL1 luminaires on

the opening night of their “Abacab” tour on September 25, 1981, and it

was also the “Genesis” of Vari-Lite the company.

Inspired by the magic of moving light and changing color, Vari-Lite set

about creating complete lighting systems that add both subtle nuance

and brilliant spectacle to any event. In November 2002, Vari-Lite was

purchased by the Genlyte Thomas Group LLC, and in November 2007,

Royal Philips Electronics purchased the Genlyte Group, along with

Vari-Lite, creating Philips Vari-Lite.

Today, Philips Vari-Lite continues to lead the world in automated lighting

technology while drawing upon the vast resources of Royal Philips

The VL440, VL770, and VL880 Spot luminaires contain everything

that really matters to designers – limitless color options, unmatched

clarity of optics, exceptional zoom range, fast, smooth movement and

powerful output; with all of these features combined in a compact,

lightweight and cost-effective, luminaire.

All the fixtures provide brilliant color mixing through a three-wheel

CYM color assembly, and also have one gobo wheel with seven rotatable

and indexable positions, a second gobo wheel with ten fixed positions,

powerful pan and tilt motors that provide smooth, fast time-controlled

continuous motion capable of 0.3° resolution with a pan range of 540°

and tilt of 260°, a zoom range from 15° to 36°, a mechanical iris for

continuous beam size control, and built in mounting points on the front

of the luminaire provide for easy attachment of after-market accessories

such as top hats.

The VL440 Spot uses a 400-watt MSR Gold 400 Philips MinifastFit lamp

to produce 9000 lumens of output. The VL770 Spot uses an industrystandard

700-watt MSR Gold Philips MiniFastFit lamp to produce an

impressive output of 15,100 lumens. And the VL880 Spot uses a new and

revolutionary 800-watt MSR Philips Platinum 35 lamp for an output of

19,000 lumens. With better lumen maintenance and color temperature

consistency over high intensity discharge lamps, the VL880 Spot also

incorporates active thermal management of the lamp that controls the

fan speed to both protect the lamp and further extend the lamp life.

Each luminaire is complete with eight standard colors on a fixed wheel,

a coated glass dimmer wheel, a separate dual-blade strobe system,

an independent armature with frost glass, and a second, independent

armature with a rotating and indexable prism. In all the fixtures the frost

and prism glass are interchangeable.

Series 500 luminaires

VL550 WASH

The VL550 Wash luminaire is based upon the Emmy ® Awardwinning

VL5 Wash luminaire, but with significant design

improvements, including a 50 kHz. drive system that quiets the

operation of all two-phase motors in the fixture during movement

and while in static positions. This multi-faceted luminaire is

available in two models: the VL550 and VL550D. Plus, as an

option, both models are available with pastel versions of the

standard colors. The pastel colors offer a softer, “Broadway-type”

color palette often used in live theater. In all models, the innovative

DICHRO*TUNE radial color mixing system employs three sets

of 16 radially mounted dichroic filters - magenta, blue, and

amber – designed to produce smooth, full spectrum color cross-fades.

All models are designed with natural convection cooled lamps and

internally cooled electronics which utilize on-demand low velocity,

low noise micro-fans.

VL550 Wash Luminaire: The most economical and lightweight

version of the luminaire, the VL550 offers the warm 3200-degree

color temperature of the tungsten lamp source, along with weight

and space efficiency.

VL550 model

• Optional 1200 W or 1000 W tungsten lamp

• More than 6,000 (120V) or 4,700 (230V)

lumens (dependent upon lamp and lens type)

• Field angle from 13.0° to 43.3°

(dependent upon lamp and lens type)

• 16 radially mounted diffuser planes

to control beam spread

VL550D Wash Luminaire: This luminaire is most advantageous

for those whose productions have a limited number of dimmer

circuits available. It retains a warm 3200 degree color temperature,

and with only a slight increase in weight, provides onboard IGBT

dimming without requiring any additional cabling.

The VL1100 ERS combines the advantages of an ellipsoidal reflector spotlight with the versatility of an automated

luminaire. As the next generation of the VL1000 ERS luminaires, all models of the VL1100 luminaire have a new 50 kHz.

drive system that quiets the operation of all two-phase motors in the fixtures during movement and while in static

positions. New, three-phase, ultra quiet stepper motors provide for smooth, timed continuous pan and tilt motion.

Additionally, a new central bearing system in the gobo wheel reduces noise and ensures smooth operation. The

VL1100 luminaire is available in two different versions. Arc lamp models combine cool color tones with brightness and

intensity. Tungsten lamp models combine warm color temperature with an optional internal electronic dimmer. And all

models include either a mechanical iris or a four-blade framing shutter system.

VL1100 Arc luminaire:

When the production calls for cool color tones and bright, intense light, designers turn to the VL1100A luminaire.

The VL1100A luminaire’s flexibility and affordable price make it ideal for budget-conscious producers who otherwise

might not be able to afford automated lighting.

VL1100 Tungsten luminaire:

Combining the warm color temperature of tungsten lighting with outstanding color control, the VL1100T luminaire is

the right choice for theater, television, film and more. On Broadway, lighting designers select the VL1100T for its warm,

natural skin tones and perfect color rendering. The quiet operation and convection cooling give the light top billing in

installations where noisy fans can detract from even the most stellar performance.

Series 2000 luminaires

VL 2500 WASH

VL 2500 SPOT

With the VL2500 Spot luminaire, lighting designers get

all of the features they love from the original Series

2000 fixtures with the added bonus of CYM color

mixing, a coated glass dimmer wheel and a separate

dual-blade strobe system that provides a smooth,

super-fast strobe. Combined with an 11-slot fixed color

wheel, the color options are practically limitless. The

VL2500 Spot’s pan and tilt motors are powerful and

provide great torque while the beam size iris operates

quietly. The VL2500 Spot truly has everything that

really matters to designers – clarity of optics, exceptional

zoom range, fast, smooth movement and powerful

output, all at a most reasonable price.

An exceptional CYM color mixing system, fast and powerful pan/tilt functions

and an impressive zoom range are what set the VL2500 Wash luminaire

apart from the competition. The VL2500 Wash features a glass dimmer

wheel and dual strobe blades providing designers with smooth, even

dimming capability and lightning fast strobe. The VL2500 Wash luminaire

maintains the high standards set by the original Series 2000 fixtures with

additional features to make the lights even more useful. The VL2500 Wash

luminaire is a valuable tool for any project, no matter what type of event

it is. It combines small size and quick movement with features one would

normally expect in a much larger and more expensive 1200-watt fixture.

dimmer and strobe mechanisms

Upon its release, the VL3000 Spot luminaire set new benchmarks for spot

luminaires with the industry’s best imagery, beam control, color and brightness.

The intensity and smooth movement of the light give designers a

new level of creative freedom. Three rotating gobo and effects wheels let

designers create images never before possible without affecting the intensity

of the light. The VL3000 Spot luminaire maintains its beam brightness

and image clarity from edge-to-edge and throughout a zoom. And the

variable beam focus allows for smooth gobo morphing. The level of detail

and kaleidoscopic capabilities of the VL3000 Spot luminaire bring new

possibilities to every application, while the quiet pan and tilt ensure that

the only thing the audience will hear is the show.

“Q”uiet luminaires:

For productions where the absence of noise is

critical to the performance, the VL3000Q Spot

luminaire provides the same powerful capabilities

of the original Series 3000 fixtures while reducing

the audible noise output considerably. For theater,

television studios, houses of worship and other

sound-sensitive applications, lighting designers

now have a light that limits noise without limiting

creative freedom.

With 20,000 lumens of output and superior color and beam control, the

VL3000 Wash state-of-the-art optics produce a pure, bright light with no

hot spots and minimal drop-off from center to edge. The light’s output is

consistent over large and small areas alike making the VL3000 Wash the

ideal solution for venues that require lighting a large area from a short

distance. Because Series 3000 Spot and Wash fixtures share many

components and have a modular design, maintenance time and,

consequently, down time are kept to a minimum.

“Q”uiet luminaires:

As with the VL3000 Spot, a “Q” model is available

that allows users to achieve the same performance

as the standard models with reduced sonic output.

VL 3500 SPOT

Series 3000 luminaires

VL 3500 WASH

The VL3500 Spot is one of the industry’s most celebrated

automated luminaires. The extraordinary shutter system of

the VL3500 fixture consists of four shutters on two planes,

which can be operated independently or in unison. The

entire mechanism can be rotated in either direction to

allow for even greater creative control. Opposing chamfers

and nominal distance between shutter edges allows for a clear,

crisp focus on all four blades at once. Combined with the

fixture’s fast, fluid movement and precise repeatability, the

ability to create is virtually unlimited. No other luminaire can

provide the 6-to-1 zoom range in a silent-running 1200W fixture.

Buxom options, an interchangeable front lens system,

and an aperture wheel. The fixture provides CYM color

mixing, variable CTO color temperature correction, dual

five-position color wheels, a separate dimmer, and an independent

dual blade strobe mechanism. In conjunction

with its zoomable optics system, Vari-Lite introduces the

VARI*BRITE mode. From almost any zoom position, this

mode can be engaged to offer a tight column of remarkably

intense light making the VL3500 the most versatile

wash luminaire on the market.

VL3500 Wash FX luminaire:

This model allows users to harness the tremendous

intensity of the luminaire to project effects patterns.

The aperture wheel from the VL3500 Wash is

replaced with a pattern wheel that provides four

rotatable and indexable positions in addition to open.

When used in conjunction with the Plano Convex

the peaked beam, the fixture provides 27,000 lumens of output, and in

the flat field beam, an output of 22,000 lumens is achieved. Reflectors

are easily changed, and whichever one is not chosen rides securely inside

the luminaire on a specially designed mount. Plus, each luminaire offers

CYM color mixing, variable CTO color temperature correction, a sixposition

color wheel, and an ultra-fast strobe mechanism. The VL3515

luminaire has an added feature of a four-blade shutter mechanism that

allows the blades to be operated independently or in unison on two

planes for a clear and crisp image.

Producing over 42,000 lumens of output, the VL3015LT Spot also offers

CYM color mixing and variable CTO color temperature correction, but it

houses two five-position color wheels, three gobo/effects wheels, a beam

size iris, separate dimmer, and an ultra-fast strobe mechanism. Plus the

VLX Series

The VLX Wash luminaire incorporates the most attractive

benefits of LED lighting technology with the product quality

and design ingenuity only found in Philips Vari-Lite automated

luminaires. By giving lighting designers the unique ability to

replicate the color temperature of a tungsten or arc lamp

source, this truly revolutionary luminaire offers an incomparable

flexibility never seen before in the LED lighting market. The

internal beam homogenization system creates smooth color

mixing that is natural and free of any “color shadowing”

effects associated with other LED fixtures. Additionally, the

VLX Wash offers a dynamic CRI adjustment and continuously

adjustable color temperature white range between

approximately 3000 and 9000 Kelvin. With stunning colors,

powerful intensity, a multi-year source life, low energy

consumption and even lower maintenance costs, the VLX Wash

luminaire truly is the new face of LED lighting technology.

VLX3 Luminaire: Based on the award-winning VLX Wash

luminaire technology, the VLX3 Wash uses three powerful

LED engines to offer stunning colors and intensity, a multi-year

source life and high reliability. The three, replaceable 120-watt

RGBW LED chipsets provide output that offers three times

the efficacy of comparable tungsten sources. The total system

provides approximately 6,000 lumens of white light output,

and a 10,000 hour source life of the chip.

The VLX3 Wash also allows for operation of all three

light engines as one, or for completely separate control

of each. When operated separately, the light engines can

be programmed to perform as three stand-alone, distinct

sources; each capable of its own color, dimming, strobe rate,

and fade time.
