The Avolites team is debuting Arena, Titan V9, and new features in the UK at PLASA Focus, Leeds, on stand N-D01
UK / Germany - Avolites proved its truly international appeal at Prolight+Sound 2015, teaming up with dealers, distributors and friends from around the world to celebrate the launch of its Arena console, the new Titan V9 operating system, and its industry-leading new features such as Autoblend.

Visitors to the Avolites Prolight+Sound stand came from more than 40 countries, and included a high number of potential new distributors, especially from North and West Africa and the Caribbean.

Now, the Avolites team is continuing the buzz by debuting its well-received new products in the UK at PLASA Focus, Leeds, on stand N-D01.

"The Arena consoles attracted a huge amount of attention during April's Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt - we were inundated with lighting designers, rental companies and specifiers, generating a fantastic response from many of the people who came to see the new arrival to the Titan product range," says Avolites' sales director Koy Neminathan.

"They were pleased to see the vast array of faders and buttons alongside an integrated touch screen, as well as the 7" touch screen and the rotary encoders. The unique Optical Switch built in to the console was hailed as an incredibly useful tool. We took over 30 orders for Arena and the Optical Titan Net Switch just on the first day and look forward to exhibiting it in Leeds."

The Avolites Arena is designed for festivals, theatres and anywhere that a larger control surface is required. It combines the popular interface of the Tiger Touch II with 30 additional Playback faders and expanded live control options and features.

Alongside the vibrant main display, a second touch screen provides an additional workspace window, also labelling the adjacent macro buttons and rotary pots.

These fully assignable playback encoder pots allow intuitive control of channels and effects. The six LCD screens display electronic legends for 30 faders, for speedy access to all your playbacks, fixtures and palettes.

A new optical output means the Arena is equipped for fibre connections, with no signal loss over long distances, from front of house to the stage - essential in large and outdoor venues.

Both the new Arena and Quartz consoles offer MIDI in and headphone out on the console as well as a 7 band Audio Trigger functionality.

Arena will be running the 'hot-off-the-press' Titan V9 software, which includes a multitude of new features.

On stand, visitors can also experience demos of the revolutionary Autoblend feature of Ai which allows blending of large projection surfaces using multiple projectors.

Products on stand include: Tiger Touch II networked with Multiuser, Sapphire System with EX4, Quartz + Mobile Wing, Tiger Touch II + Fader Wing, Sapphire Media with EX8/S8, Titan Mobile, Quartz with S6 server, and dimmers.
