In the first quarter of 2020 a new Cultural Center in Stopini town, Latvia was built and PROLIGHTS products were used in the new installation.
Two lighting equipment systems were installed in Stopini Cultural Center in the town of Stopini, situated in the outskirts of Riga, the capital of Latvia – Great Hall and Small Hall systems. The purpose of the lighting systems was to provide quality lighting for concerts, theatre plays, amateur concerts, folk dance concerts, conferences alongside events.
“Since the Great Hall serves as an acoustic hall, one of the requirements for stage lighting was to have projectors with housings that do not emit noise upon cooling and heating, do not create flares, to have LED projectors without cooling fans or with especially quiet cooling fans” said Ilgonis Punculs, Director for Diogens audio Ltd, the company responsible for the project. “Other requirements were to find a device with a great CRI – no less than 90 K / 3200 K, a wide range CCT control, so it is suitable for television broadcasts. It goes without saying, that it was important to fit into a rather limited budget. At the start of the project we did not have certain make or model in mind, just our own specifications. Our partner Sonus exsertus recommended PROLIGHTS products. We were told they carry great quality for a great price. At this point in time we cannot disagree with this statement.
It was essential to have an even and flat light surface to create suitable lighting for stage note score reading. Hence, we chose PROLIGHTS EclProfile HDTWC profile projectors with 25-50 degree lenses and EclFresenel TW, which creates even and flat stage surface lighting and tone. PROLIGHTS Ecl LED Fresnel TW projectors allow us to provide required corporate colors in case of conferences, while EclProfile HDTWC profile LED projectors with 25-50 degree lenses support front, side and portal lighting and no just white light.
Our first experience and interaction with PROLIGHTS was in Frankfurt expo. PROLIGHTS stand had a Latvian representative that hooked us, it doesn’t get better than that! Moreover, the fixtures have proven to be perfect for this particular installation. They definitely exceeded expectations and I’m sure we will make use of PROLIGHTS products for our future lighting projects”.
