In the Spotlight: GE to Supply SHOWBIZ® Lamps to CHAUVET for Entertainment and Architectural Lamp Luminaires

CLEVELAND, Ohio — (NYSE: GE)  Entertainment lighting leader CHAUVET has chosen GE Appliances & Lighting to be its primary supplier of metal halide discharge lamps. GE SHOWBIZ® CSR metal halide lamps will now fit the majority of CHAUVET's signature, lamp–fitted luminaires, including the Q–series™ and Legend™ moving yokes, and the Spectrum™ architectural line. In addition to supplying lamps, GE engineers will assist in the design of future CHAUVET optics. 

"The lamps' superior quality, the strength of the GE brand name and the level of insight they have into optics have us excited about the possibilities," says CHAUVET CEO Albert Chauvet. "Working closely with the engineering team at GE to develop new products and to optimize the systems and performance of our optical elements will allow our discharge fixtures to offer even greater value."

GE offers a family of SHOWBIZ lamps for moving–lights applications that call for high color temperatures and brighter light sources. Precise chemical dosing in all SHOWBIZ CSR lamps produces stable lamp color temperatures over the life of the products, and ensures consistent performance in all types of fixtures.

"CHAUVET fixtures and GE lamps are a perfect complement to one another and a great fit for club, touring and architectural applications," says Gerry Schuh, SHOWBIZ product manager. "The combination provides the visual excitement these applications demand while giving customers greater flexibility and reliable operation."
