We are currently using ten on Merchant of Venice (LD Rick Fisher) at the Almeida Theatre and they have been fantastic in terms of quality of light and colour, and ease of use (once you get past the faff of the various frosts and filters). Admittedly we're using them on a very blue and gold set in relatively bright colours, so its not very easy to compare them directly to the rest of the S4s in the rig but they more than hold there own in terms of punch. Now we just need to come up with a way to afford them!! (many thanks to ETC for the long term loan - we will miss them)

I was very pleased to be able to chair an introductory meeting yesterday between PLASA and the Carbon Trust.
