Vari-Lite promotes sustainability with higher output VL2600 Series light engine upgrade

Vari-Lite have announced a new, higher output light engine upgrade for their workhorse VL2600 Series fixtures. The light engine upgrade provides significantly higher output to the popular line of moving head luminaires while aligning with the company’s commitment to sustainability by promoting circular economy, minimizing waste by extending the existing product lifecycle rather than making iterative new versions, for a positive impact on the environment and society.

Originally released in 2018, the VL2600 Series is, to date, one of the most popular Vari-Lite fixtures ever produced. Boasting a profile, wash, and spot version, the VL2600 Series is a full family of fixtures with a broad color palette, a wide range of features, and a consistent light engine across the series. It’s possible to rent a VL2600 Series luminaire on every continent on the globe, and the new easily replaceable light engine increases sustainability by extending the life of these highly specified light fixtures with notably higher output and the same great features.

Vari-Lite demonstrated the upgraded VL2600 light engine in a side-by-side comparison with a current-generation fixture at recent Live Design International (LDI) convention in Las Vegas, USA. The VL2600 Series includes a broad range of high-demand features, including CMY colour mixing, variable CTO, fixed and rotating gobo wheels, iris, and frost.

Sustainability is core to the strategy at Vari-Lite, who boasts “some of the longest lasting moving head luminaires in the industry”, with many luminaires remaining in use for decades. This focus on a circular economy aligns with the corporate strategies at parent company Signify, a world leader in sustainability that has been 100% carbon neutral with zero waste to landfill since 2020.
