NORTH CREEK, NY — Creative Stage Lighting was named exclusive distributor for German lighting manufacturer JB-lighting in the United States and Mexico. CSL also became North American distributor of Compulite products, including the Vector series of lighting consoles. The company also named Michael Nevitt product manager. CSL will now offer the JB-lighting product line to North America, including the JB LED line of LED fixtures, VaryColor Wash fixtures,VaryScan Moving Heads, and Licon lighting consoles. JB-lighting also introduced its JBLED A7 fixture last fall, featuring 108 LEDs packed tightly to provide even mixing and a wide range of colors.

“Creative Stage and JB-lighting embrace very similar philosophies; to provide high quality, reliable products that are ecologically friendly,” said Kevin Loretto, CSL’s director of dealer sales. “We feel certain that our dealer network will be extremely excited with the entire JB lineup.”

CSL president George B. Studnicky III and Compulite CEO Yehuda Shukrun also commented on the plan to add Compulite products to CSL's dealer network.

“This relationship with Compulite is very exciting and rounds out Creative’s portfolio of the high quality products we distribute,” Studnicky said.

"The Creative Stage Lighting approach, taking on new products, along with its strong dealer network, have made CSL a natural choice for Compulite,” Shukrun added. “We are delighted to establish together a significant presence for our products in the market."

Compulite’s Vector Consoles are designed for use in theatre, opera and ballet and more. The upcoming Vector 3.16 version offers new features and enhancements offering more productivity, stability and capacity.

CSL also recently announced its hiring of Michael Nevitt as product manager. Nevitt's responsibilities at CSL include supporting Compulite products sold in North America through CSL.

“Michael’s expertise and dedication on our new product lines assures our clients receive optimal support,” said Studnicky.

Nevitt is a veteran of the lighting industry. His design and automated lighting programming experience includes work he's done for feature films such as The Grinch, Batman & Robin, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, and Miss Congeniality.

Nevitt also brings product management experience from Martin, where he worked on the development of Martin's Maxxyz Console and Maxedia Media Server.

“I’m excited to be a part of the Creative Stage Lighting team and to help drive innovation in our industry through top-level products like those of Compulite and JB-lighting," said Nevitt.
