Core Lighting Points Out Big Success at Prolight+Sound 2015

23 April 2015

UK wireless LED lighting manufacturer Core Lighting enjoyed a busy and successful Prolight+Sound 2015 expo at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt - the first time the Core brand has exhibited directly under its own banner at this show but with the usual support of White Light as their exclusive European distributor.

Core and White Light took advantage of the dynamically international mix of Prolight’s attendees to launch its new StripPoint LED batten fixture, as well as using the opportunity to meet potential new dealers from Europe and further afield. 

Having recently appointed Keylight as it’s dealer in the Netherlands to supplement other dealers in other European countries, Core is keen to further expand its network worldwide.

They additionally showcased the tiny new PinPoint units and best-selling ColourPoint Mk2 range of wireless battery-powered up-lighters together with other innovative luminaires, all proudly ‘Made in the UK’, which are ideal for all scenarios needing neat, fast and cable-free lighting solutions.

Core’s Managing Director Phil Ion said: “The response in Frankfurt was superb! We were busy for most of the four days and we saw people from all across Europe and plenty of visitors from Asia, the Far East and the pan-Pacific regions. The StripPoint and PinPoint attracted a lot of attention as the newest products in our range, but there was also great interest in the existing ColourPoint, Point30 and battery floodlight products.”

Phil commented that the whole PL+S experience reaffirmed his belief in the show’s strategic importance as a vibrant European gateway for the professional entertainment industry: “We certainly feel that being there as Core in our own right has increased our visibility and brand awareness.”

The new Core StripPoint is a one metre long unit with 18 mapable RGBW LEDs, which emit an impressive 4000 lumens drawing only 90W of power. Each LED cell’s colour is also individually controllable via a homogenous mix of four colours. It is completely battery powered - lasting up to eight hours in two-colour mode - and can be run wirelessly (via WDMX) or via wired DMX if preferred. It can also be mains powered. The StripPoint is IP65 rated for outdoor use and maximum functionality, and robustly quality-engineered like all Core products.

Core’s PinPoint is a tiny wireless pin-spot / birdie weighing just 700 grams with a single LED lightsource outputting a punchy 300+ lumens. The head is connected to the base of the PinPoint via a flexible stainless steel 'gooseneck' for maximum focusability, and the brushed aluminium housing is stylish and contemporary. Wireless controls include Wireless DMX and Bluetooth utilising Core’s own proprietary tablet apps.


After PLASA Focus Leeds, where the products will be shown by White Light, the next stop on the exhibition calendar for Core is PLASA Focus Kansas City, where Ion and the US team will seek to reinforce the rapid increase in business there over the last six months.
