via PRNewswire

Intelligent LED lighting technology is increasingly penetrating theentertainment and event production markets, particularly in color lightingapplications. Unlike conventional sources, LED lighting products require nogels, filters or mechanical scrollers to generate color and dynamic effects.They're also well suited for creating flexible, modular displays for low-resolution video effects that are commonly applied as stage backdrops ordynamic set pieces.

In addition to their aesthetic versatility, LED lighting products canoffer many cost advantages over conventional lighting equipment. Their longsource life and rugged physical nature translate to minimal replacement, andtheir low power draw allows for easy installation without complex electricalrequirements. They emit little heat, and can be used in tight spaces or withinset elements, near performers, and in other areas where conventional lightsources are impractical.

High End Systems' first LED product, SHOWGUN(TM), is scheduled forcommercial release in June 2007 .
