During the late summer of 2020, Creative Technology (CT) made the final transition to their new 105,000 square foot warehouse space in Las Vegas, NV. The new warehouse offers CT over three times the space of their previous location. “Plain and simple, we needed more space, we were busting at the seams in our old location.” Says Chris Wasilauskas, Technical Director of Lighting for Creative Technology. “We needed more space for our current inventory as well as additional space for the new gear that we have been adding to meet our clients’ needs.” Adds Wasilauskas. The new warehouse in Henderson on Raiders Way dedicates 60% of the space to lighting, the other 40% to a combination of Video and Audio.

Helping to fill out the new warehouse space, Creative Technology recently invested in 500 PROLIGHTS EclProfile FS LED Ellipsoidal from A.C. Lighting Inc.  “We have been looking for an LED-based fixture that has excellent color rendering for the camera, full-spectrum color mixing and is easy for technicians to operate onsite.” Say Wasilauskas. The EclProfile FS hit each of those requirements and more. “A good portion of our business is large-scale corporate events.” Says Ian Dobson, Project Manager for Creative Technology. “A number of these types of events can have multiple breakout meeting rooms each requiring a basic stage wash. A single gig can have as many as 200 hundred EclProfile FS onsite. On top of that, we can have multiple events happening in the same time frame, so we needed the inventory and space.” Adds Dobson.

Pure Sound Meets Finnish Design in New Genelec 6040R Smart Active Loudspeaker

Genelec, the global leader in active loudspeaker design, has unveiled the first model in its new Signature Series with the introduction of the two-way 6040R Smart Active Loudspeaker. Created in conjunction with celebrated Finnish industrial designer Harri Koskinen, the floor-standing 6040R fuses the very best of Finnish technology and design, bringing exceptional performance and beautiful aesthetics to all lovers of high quality audio. Pleasing to the ears as well as the eyes, the 6040R is a loudspeaker that will instantly become the aural and visual centerpiece of any listening environment.

Koskinen’s long association with Genelec began 20 years ago with the introduction of the timeless 6040A model, the first Genelec loudspeaker to feature the distinctive minimalist curves of the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) – a cabinet design by Koskinen that now forms the core of much of Genelec’s current loudspeaker range. Fashioned from die-cast aluminum, the MDE meant that the original 6040A produced exceptionally clean acoustic performance, delivered staggeringly wide frequency response from such a compact enclosure, and was free from the resonances that affected more traditional wooden cabinet designs. The MDE also allowed the 6040A to feature Genelec’s now-familiar Directivity Control Waveguide, which produces smooth uncolored reproduction both on- and off-axis, with unrivalled imaging and minimal distortion.
