As lighting controls specialist Pharos Architectural Controls celebrates its 20th year in 2024, the manufacturer is launching an exciting campaign in recognition of key people and projects that have played a significant part on its journey.
The 20 Years of Pharos campaign will spotlight ten lighting professionals and ten projects that have shaped the success of the company over the two decades since its establishment.
Pharos Architectural Controls was founded in 2004 as part of the Carallon group, as an independently owned specialist in dynamic lighting control systems.
All Pharos products are designed and manufactured in-house, including each product’s industrial design, the electronics, and the final assembly. By keeping control of the entire design and manufacturing process, Pharos prides itself on maintaining the highest possible standards in quality assurance. All Pharos products are backed by a 5-year warranty and supported by an experienced technical team.
The most prevalent solution provided by Pharos is its flagship LPC (Lighting Playback Controller), a compact solid-state lighting controller originally designed for theme parks – bringing together the ideal blend of lighting control and show control in a neat package, while being rugged enough to be bolted onto a rollercoaster.
However, what really makes Pharos products unique is the bespoke software that runs on them. For many, the software is the beating heart of any Pharos solution, providing users with a vast array of possibilities when designing their lighting projects. Developed entirely in-house and regularly updated with new features and functionality, both Designer and Expert software are available to download free of charge from the Pharos website.
Simon Hicks, CEO of Pharos Architectural Controls, comments: “Achieving 20 years in business is a significant milestone, which we are extremely proud of. That’s why we are celebrating not only our success but the contribution of those talented individuals and stand-out projects that have been key to our growth and accomplishments.
“We’re excited to get the campaign underway and announce our champions of the first 20 years of Pharos!” As the team at Pharos reflects on the past two decades, they celebrate a journey marked by innovation, growth, and success. With further product developments and exceptional projects in the pipeline, they are anticipating the future of lighting control and looking forward to the next 20 years.
