From April 1, 2021, Panasonic Corporation Living Solutions, Inc. (Panasonic) will release a total of 79 product numbers for 3 types of auditorium LED lighting fixtures that can be dimmed from 0 to 100% with aesthetic and smooth fading properties. Wide range of products for smooth dimming of uniform light. Not only the auditorium of cinemas and halls but also the spaces that require meticulous fading, such as movie theaters and hotel banquet halls, are produced with high quality.
In the past, most of the lighting fixtures in theater auditoriums used halogen lamps as light sources to achieve fine and smooth dimming. In July 2012, Panasonic released two energy-saving LED downlights for auditoriums. Since then, we have expanded the range of products to pursue long life and high efficiency while improving dimming characteristics, aiming to realize dimming characteristics that can be used in production spaces.
By changing the control method, the new product improves fader follow ability and enables smoother lighting. There are many types of downlights, there are universal downlights, linear, and 3 types, which can be used in a variety of spaces. The dimming range is 0 to 100%, the same as halogen lamps, and we also have a lineup of full dimming types with a high color temperature (4000K) that cannot be achieved with halogen bulbs. Since multiple lighting fixtures can be neatly arranged and dimmed, the entire space can be produced in high quality. The universal downlight has a variable light distribution function, and the light distribution can be fine-tuned on the spot.
Panasonic started in the business of large-scale dimming equipment in 1968 and has supplied lighting equipment to numerous theaters and studios. In theatres and halls, we have delivered around 1120 theatres and we also offer theatre design support using VR (for a fee). In addition, at the theater, the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred in 2011 triggered the revision of the 2016 notification of the new technology standard for specific ceilings, in response to the fall of the ceiling caused by earthquakes, etc., and entering the impact. Even now, the theater is planning earthquake-resistant retrofits, including ceilings. When decorating the ceiling, the lighting fixtures are often replaced at the same time, and Panasonic will meet such needs.
