Introducing Phantos Lighting
Phantos Lighting is the Australian distributor for some rising brand names in the professional lighting industry. Its target market is customers who may not be able to afford top brands but still need quality product with strong local support. Over the years it has supplied lighting products and provided installation services to churches, schools, production companies and venues.
When ESL Australia decided to upgrade their new events studio in Auburn recently they called Phantos for some advice on theme lighting. A stage was already built in the studio, which had pre-existing white floodlights mounted overhead along with LED strip lighting. They wanted to theme the remainder of the studio in a way where the venue could be lit to suit any request. They also wanted to be able to control all the lighting from a different room but not have to run DMX cables.
Phantos came up with a solution where the theme lighting wasn’t washed out by the white floodlights, while being conservative with costs.
After demoing a number of different lighting and effect fixtures, a total of 20 PHANTOS LED PARs, 2 XMLITE 120W LED Spot Moving Heads, and one MLB 600W Hazer were installed just in time for their recent official Australian launch for a video game. Approximately 200 gaming professionals and enthusiasts attended the event.
Brad Baldwin and his project team were very happy about the performance of these new lighting fixtures.
“The LED PARs provided great overall coverage of the space and the LED moving heads were a really nice touch to add some movement to the set. The hazer made everything look even better and Phantos Lighting’s experience with digital consoles helped us to find a control solution fit for what we needed. I couldn’t be happier with the look we achieved with the timeframe we had and for what it cost.”
Phantos does installations in Sydney but distributes DJpower, KKMark, MLB, XMlite and KOLO brands across Australia.
