ADB to launch advanced lighting controls at ProLight&SoundThe Liberty lighting console from ADB – set to debut at ProLight&Sound in April.
Belgium - ADB Lighting will host the worldwide launch of Freedom and Liberty, two "highly advanced lighting control desks", at ProLight&Sound 2011 in Frankfurt (6-9 April 2011). The consoles are based on the powerful new Hathor software platform, which was previewed in 2010.

Freedom is designed to offer a solution where large numbers of multi-parameter instruments need to be controlled with "ultra-fast access". The desk allows users to control multiple LED fittings, intelligent lights and media servers as well as standard generic dimming systems, say ADB.

Liberty is aimed at space-challenging environments and any cost-conscious venue seeking a fully integrated solution to control conventional and moving lights, LED sources and other modern equipment. It all comes in a compact and portable console with the capacity of much larger and more expensive lighting consoles, the company says.

Freedom is available in six basic configurations controlling from 120 to 2048 multi-parameter lighting instruments, while Liberty comes in five basic configurations controlling from 120 to 1024 multi-parameter lighting instruments. Both consoles can address up to 16 universes via suitable networks, and can perform as standalone or as a client consoles in an extended networked system. Networked consoles will support multi-user / multi-operator setups with optional software packages and hence work perfectly together with other control desks powered by Hathor software. Synchronised backup is optionally available.

The heart of both consoles is a dual core processor supporting multiple graphical screens, running under the newest embedded version of Windows OS. This design offers unrivalled performance and reliability, as well as the flexibility to incorporate software drivers for the latest peripheral devices. The operator can freely configure the screen layout and tailor the user interface to suit personal needs and preferences.

Hathor software itself has been developed with the requirements of modern lighting design trends and has been extensively road-tested over an extended period of time, say ADB.
