When thinking of Las Vegas “educational” is hardly the first term that comes to mind. On May 13th, Las Vegas’ PURE Nightclub in Caesar’s Palace became a symposium for lighting professionals called the “PURE Lighting Technology Symposium” put on by Digi-Key Corp. PURE Nightclub was chosen for the symposium because of its dramatic lighting arraignments. PURE uses over forty intelligent lighting fixtures that move, mix color, use zoom and strobe effects and use a wide range of coverage without losing intensity.
Every room of PURE Nightclub exhibited some sort of innovative lighting including two rooms separated from the club that showed two opposite lighting effects; the White Room that kept the lighting simple and sophisticated and the Red Room that, true to its name, used a dark red glow to create a more lavish atmosphere. According to Digi-Key, PURE also uses Martin Mac 250 Spots, which are DMX programmable moving light fixtures with variable focus beams, dichroic color wheels and rotating gobo pattern wheels.
In a recent Digi-Key press release Digi-Key’s vice president of semiconductor products said “PURE Nightclub embodies Digi-Key’s ideal of lighting technology at its best. It is a fitting venue to bring together professionals from the lighting industry, ranging from lighting designers and engineers to stage lighting technicians and electricians, for Digi-Key’s PURE Lighting Technology Symposium.”
