After they heard about Vari-Lite, they dissected and studied the optics of several short-throw followspots. ” It was dubbed the Pana-Spot. The color change was accomplished by solenoids tripping a boom with gel colors, and the lamp source was a MARC 350 with the power supply in a separate enclosure.

The Genesis of the Automated Lighting Industry The concept of mechanized lighting can be traced at least as far back as 1906 when Edmund Sohlberg of Kansas City, Missouri, was issued a patent for a remotecontrolled spotlight. The fixture had a carbon-arc source, an electromechanical color changer, and a series of cords and pulleys that allowed an operator to remotely change the pan, tilt, and zoom by manually adjusting the cords. The idea was to locate the operator in a hidden location while the light was perched on the balcony rail, and the operator could move it at will.
