The JB-Lighting P18 MK2 Profile HC was convincing in all respects

Since the opening of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall on the brick base of former quayside warehouse A at Hamburg harbour, the technical team of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall has been intensively involved with the use of moving lights in the concert hall. Mike Neumann, foreman for event technology and technical project manager, has been present from the start and is responsible for lighting technology.

“We have these circumstances to thank for being able to compare a number of different devices from different manufacturers with one another over a period of 4 years”, says Mike Neumann. At the forefront of the considerations was the remit to be able to stage world and pop music as well as TV productions in addition to orchestras and operas, with just one light technology device.
Against this backdrop, a unit had to be selected which is as quiet as possible but with high output and comprehensive features. Besides this, the equipment should not be too heavy for day-to-day handling. “Furthermore, it was important that a new LED-powered light could be fully integrated into the existing halogen light in the stage area”, adds Matthias Baumgartner, who is also a foreman for event technology in the team of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall.

The JB-Lighting P18 MK2 Profile HC was convincing in all respects, with its:
  • High output and low power loss, especially at a wide zoom range
  • Bright reproduction, which is particularly visible in its sharpness and evenness when using gobos
  • Excellent lens quality compared to alternative products
  • Colour mixing and dimming behaviour which adapts uniformly and optimally to the halogen environment
  • Almost inaudible fan noise
  • And low weight
“We liked these factors a great deal four years ago with the P18 MK1. A good reason for choosing JB-Lighting was that, despite a clear increase in performance in the MK2 version, a further reduced noise level has been achieved with the same design. We found that small details had also been well thought-out with the development of the unit: an almost inaudible reset; this is otherwise not available in the market environment, and ultimately the integrated carry handles on the lightbars make them considerably easier to handle”, explains Mike Neumann.

Matthias Baumgartner is inspired by the incredible movement speed of the moving head: “passively cooled systems do not come anywhere near the pan/tilt speeds of the P18 MK2. The small dimensions here are of course a decisive factor. Besides the speed when changing position, the position accuracy is also guaranteed. All this and yet it is also virtually inaudible.”

The P18 MK2 thus bridges the gap between production requirements in the field of classical versus pop and rock events. In the opinion of the team of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, the German support, with short supply paths and the corresponding production training, round off the package.

“As a result, it therefore made sense to choose the little brother of the P18 MK2, as its ideal complement for smaller venues, namely the P12”, added Mike and Matthias unanimously.

For this extension, the sales partner of JB-Lighting Lichtanlagen GmbH was PIK AG, based in Berlin.
