Last night I went to a show by a local musical company. I saw some LED PARs in use for the first time. Talking afterwards to the tech in charge I discovered he knew very little about them as they were hired but he was pretty sure they were chinese. I wasn't impressed. There were 16 of them in the rig and they were blown away by the conventional PAR 64 lanterns in the rig which had to operate at about 30%. The LEDs dimmed well down to about 20% (guessing visual) and then snapped out. There was definitely not a true white and I wasn't actually all that impressed with the colour mixing. A lot of it seemed muddy but that could easily have been poor programming. I realise this may be the way forward but I suspect it's got a long way to go. Of course as pointed out these were Chinese.
