Barbizon Lighting Atlanta and Charlotte Announce New Sales and Systems Managers


Barbizon Lighting’s North Carolina and Georgia Regional General Manager Bob Leonard introduced new products/expendables and systems integration sales managers for the Atlanta and Charlotte offices.

Rebecca Beasley is now the Products & Expendables Sales Manager.  Rebecca started with Barbizon Lighting in 2014 as a sales associate and now will lead the Atlanta and Charlotte offices sales teams.

Ms. Beasley received her Master of Arts from Austin Peay State University and started in the industry working in theatrical and event companies, and eventually migrated to the dealer distributor side of the industry.  “Rebecca understands the industry from both the end-user and distributor standpoint,” says General Manager Bob Leonard. “She’s an amazing communicator, and her ability to hear and understand customer and team member perspectives makes her well-suited for this role.”  

Rebecca is also a board member of the Southeastern Theatre Conference. 

New to Barbizon Lighting is Jeff Hanson, who will be leading the Atlanta and Charlotte Systems Integration Groups. Jeff is responsible for the day to day management of systems sales & integration, project management, and technical services.  

Coming to the industry from the audio-visual side, most recently as a regional sales manager for Unified Technology Systems, Hanson holds an AVIXA CTS certification and has a deep understanding of sales management, system design, direct sales, customer relations, strategic planning, and contract negotiations.

Regional General Manager Leonard continues, “Jeff is a great addition to the Barbizon Lighting family. His understanding of the process and flow of systems projects from initial talks through contracts, and finally at customer turn-over is a great fit as we see the scale and complexity of systems work grow here in the Southeast.”

Now you can make LED dimming on legacy systems easier with PhaseAdept

ETC PhaseAdept

Do you have a legacy ETC Sensor dimming system and find issues with line dimming LED fixtures and lamps? Electronic Theatre Controls announced they are now shipping its new PhaseAdept dimming module. 

PhaseAdept provides high-quality line dimming for LED fixtures and lamps. It is compatible with any vintage of ETC Sensor, DRd, or DR-series power enclosure, either shipping from the factory or already in the field. Because PhaseAdept works in legacy panels, a venue can use their existing power control system and the lighting system infrastructure can remain intact, expediting the renovation process and delivering tremendous cost savings.

PhaseAdept produces smooth, continuous control no matter the fixture type, features forward- and reverse-phase dimming options, and has multiple dimming curve settings. Remote configuration of the dimmer module is available in enclosures with CEM3, CEM+, P-ACP, and E-ACP control modules; manual configuration is available directly at the dimmer module for legacy systems.

Barbizon Lighting Helps MASN Update Camden Yards Set Lighting


--> Just in time for opening day in Baltimore, Barbizon Lighting Company’s Capitol offices collaborated with Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) and Lighting Director J.R. Roberson of Dragon Lighting Inc. to overhaul the press box lighting system at Camden Yards. MASN broadcasts pre/post game talks with various hosts including Tom Davis and Rick Dempsey. 

The legacy lighting system consisting of a mix of older LED and HMI fixtures were removed and updated with 4 AAdynTech JAB Hurricane and 17 Creamsource Micro fixtures, all of which have an IP65 rating being in the exposed open-air booth. 

The fixtures are adjusted in real time from the control room using a standalone ETC Echo Touch system giving the MASN crew the ability to recall preset looks and use faders to fine tune each fixture to accommodate the varying levels of exterior light and cloud cover.
