SBM-160 Color Mixing Big Chip LED™ Premieres at PLASA 2011

Luminus' Heritage of Cutting-Edge Color Mixing LED Chip Technology Continues Enabling Fixture Manufacturers Through a Surface Mount Package

LONDON--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - Luminus Devices, Inc., the industry leader in Big Chip LEDs, today announced that its newest color-mixing LED chip has premiered at PLASA 2011 as the light engine of four i-Pix fixtures from the popular BB series of LED entertainment lights: the BB1, BB2, BB4 & BB7.

i-Pix Digital Light, a leading LED entertainment lighting fixture manufacturer headquartered in the United Kingdom, is demonstrating the upgraded fixtures at this year's PLASA show. "Luminus' SBM-160 has enabled i-Pix to hot-rod its complete BB fixture series, which now emits four times the light output for the same power consumption," i-Pix founder and director Chris Ewington says. "We are already known for our innovative LED digital lighting products, and are excited that we can now offer such a substantial increase in brightness while keeping power consumption at the same level as the previous generation of BB fixtures."

"By offering a surface mount RGBW package with exceptional output from a small emitting area, we've enabled i-Pix to deliver a substantial output boost across an entire product line with minimal changes in their platform," says Don McDaniel, Ph.D., Director of Global Entertainment for Luminus. "The SBM-160 extends the success of the revolutionary CBM-380 into the realm of smaller luminaires while continuing to provide the lumen punch we're known for."

The newest generation of Luminus-powered i-Pix BB series fixtures will be on display in i-Pix's booth #2-P18 through September 14, 2011 at PLASA 2011, the leading international tradeshow for event, installation and entertainment technology.
