Bandit Lites has invested in next-generation Spot One technology by GLP Inc., noting that this high-power LED spot was the first fixture of its kind to be released to the global market. Twenty-eight of the new GLP fixtures have joined the inventory, giving Bandit the ability to further increase its offering of energy-efficient lighting. Despite their light weight, GLP fixtures are durable, according to Bandit Lites President Pete Heffernan. Like its LDs, Bandit Lites was impressed with the Spot One’s ruggedness, the excellent gobo projection and the way it embraces cutting-edge technology. Heffernan stated that GLP is an innovative leader in “green” technology. “The product has a smaller carbon footprint and reduces the need for heavy cable, drawing less power and requiring less air conditioning,” he said. The new LED moving heads have already been out with Crosby, Stills and Nash (with Jimmy Hatten as LD), plus further tours of duty with Jackson Browne (LD Steve Comer).
“Purchases are driven by the designer’s needs. We look at demand on a global basis and listen to our design partners. Investing in the Spot One is a natural consequence of our collaborations,” said Heffernan.
