Highlite at Prolight+Sound 2024: Celebrating 30 years

Highlite at Prolight+Sound 2024: Celebrating 30 years

We look back on a successful participation in Prolight+Sound 2024, where we showcased our latest innovations in two dazzling shows and celebrated 30 years of Highlite with visitors. The event was a great success and visitors were very enthusiastic about our exciting new products.

The main attractions at our booth were undoubtedly two impressive light shows that demonstrated some of the capabilities of several of our latest products. Watch them here: 

The following products were used in these shows:


New Raccoons
Other highlights at our booth included the introduction of the expansion of the revolutionary IP65-rated Infinity Raccoon series with three Pars (P7/7, Junior P4/7 and Junior P7/4) and a strobe/wash combo (S420/4). The P7/7 is a high-quality RGBCALDB Par that features seven custom-made 7-colour LEDs with maximum brightness and maximum colour quality modes offering versatility. The Junior P4/7 is a more compact version of the P7/7 with four custom-made 7-colour LEDs. Then, there is the Junior P7/4; it also has a compact housing and uses seven 4-colour LEDs. Again, it is possible to choose between maximum brightness and maximum colour quality modes on this fixture. The S420/4 is also part of the Raccoon family and this very powerful strobe/wash combination fixture boasts 420 RGBW LEDs for wash effects with a brightness of up to 30,400 lumens, while the strobe effects are produced by 32 CW LEDs that can produce over 70,000 lumens!

Showtec innovations
Showtec introduced the IP65-rated Titan Strobe FLEX FX, a fixture that brings a fresh perspective to strobe lighting. It consists of eight high-power LED strobes, complete with cables and a dedicated controller. Each strobe pod consists of a 100-watt CW COB LED surrounded by 12 individually controllable 2-watt RGBW LEDs. This combination allows strobe effects together with full-colour LED ring effects to create something unique . Other new introductions by Showtec included the latest additions to the ACT series with the Flood 200 RGBAL - designed for theatrical applications, the Par 200 W RGBAL and the Par 200 W CW/WW – both versatile indoor spotlights, and the Par 200 W UV – a fixture ideal for applications where fluorescence is key. The brand new Octostrip FLEX Set was also introduced. It is a linear LED fixture consisting of eight LED battens, eight cables and a controller. Its powerful RGBW LEDs are capable of producing a vast spectrum of accurate, vibrant colours that can go from subtle transitions to bold, pulsating colour changes, and thanks to its IP65 rating, its creative lighting effects can be enjoyed outdoors too.

New from DAP
From DAP, Frigga (a single active column PA system), the lightweight NRG series active and passive PA speakers and the new TA digital amplifiers also made an appearance. Frigga consists of a subwoofer and a column speaker and has been designed for everything from different types of musical applications to presentations. It has microphone and line inputs and is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 with support for True Wireless Stereo. The NRG series offers practical solutions for permanent and mobile applications with full-range speakers and subwoofers. The active versions have built-in DSP, mic and line inputs, and Bluetooth 5.0 with TWS. And there are no fewer than six new TA digital amplifier models with power outputs ranging from 4x 450 watts to 4x 3400 watts. Each model is a lightweight Class D touring amplifier with DSP and a compact design that only takes up 1U of rack space.

DMT news
DMT’s new Alpha series screens were also on display at PLS. The A2.6i and the A1.9i are HD LED screens with pixel pitches of 2.6 mm and 1.9 mm, respectively. Designed for indoor use, both models have a lightweight cabinet that allows angled connections between -5 and +10 degrees, which makes creating curved displays quick and easy. Front and rear servicing makes the panels ideal for fixed installations too.

Clever Showgear tools
From Showgear a number of handy products were presented. These included unique solutions, such as the Levelling Clamp for compensating angled mounting points, the Heavy Duty Tent Clamp with 500 kg WLL, the practical Tree & Pole Mounting Bracket for mounting fixtures to a tree or pole, and an Angled Arm Coupler for perfect horizontal truss mounting.

Wentex’s creative textile solutions include a number of products that allow swift and efficient design setups to be achieved for everything from conferences and trade shows to professional stage and studio environments. At PLS, new products including a Case for FOH Kit and more accessories for the Pipe and Drape system and SET Frame Modules were presented, while the entire Highlite booth was built using Wentex SET Frames.

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we also published the Spotlight Magazine, which contains insightful articles about our new products. You can read the magazine on our website here:
