Wednesday, 23 August 2017

UK - The PLASA Show returns to Olympia London next month for what will be its 40th anniversary. The event will once again present ground-breaking technology and exciting new launches by the world’s greatest designers and engineers. As the technical solutions specialist, White Light will be exhibiting on stand L50 where its expert staff will be on hand to meet customers old and new as well as present a range of revolutionary technology.
WL’s head of business development Lee Dennison comments: “We are delighted to be returning to the PLASA Show after what has been yet another significant 12 months for the company. In that time, we’ve become the in-house technical supplier at Claridge’s Hotel, installed exhibitions at the V&A and Saatchi Gallery, supported the relaunch of Hintze Hall at the Natural History Museum as well as continued to supply the biggest shows in the West End.”
The company has also continued to invest heavily in the latest technology and will be displaying a range of products available on ShopWL at the show. This includes d3 Technologies – for which WL has recently been appointed as a Certified Solutions Provider. Lee comments: “The larger and more ambitious the projects we work on become, the more we have found ourselves drawing on d3 products. As the world’s first integrated video production suite, it really is the ultimate software to visualise, design and sequence projects. We have our own fleet of d3 hardware which we are really looking forward to discussing with customers.”

clf-yaraCLF triple launch at PLASA 2017
Wednesday, 23 August 2017

UK - During PLASA 2017, CLF lighting will present three new lighting essentials, including the Yara.
The CLF Yara is a workhorse for every purpose. The LED fixture has outstanding smooth RGBW colour mixing delivered by 14 high power LEDs with a very punchy 15° beam angle. The specially selected LEDs provide high output with intense colours and an exceptional white balance. IP65 rating makes the Yara suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
The Ares XS is the smaller brother of the Ares, which has proven to be a lighting essential for many different purposes. The powerful LED wash fixture is designed for illuminating large surfaces both in- and outdoor. Extreme brightness and an extraordinary even projection make the Ares XS a true LED alternative for traditional wash lights. An array of 18 calibrated high power RGBW LEDs is divided in three individually controllable horizontal segments. The Ares XS is equipped with a punchy 21° beam angle, which can be easily adapted to other beam angles, even elliptical, by using the Smart Filter System.
The most recent addition to the CLF product range is the LEDwash XL. This is a wash fixture with two LED segments. The two horizontal LED battens can be manually tilted and controlled separately. Because of the 30° and 55° lens it is possible to use the fixture as wallwash or horizon wash light with both parts complementing each other. Additionally, the fixture can be used to illuminating two different surfaces simultaneously.

jdc102GLP JDC1 LED strobe proves popular
Friday, 18 August 2017

Germany - GLP’s new JDC1 hybrid LED strobe delivers power in excess through a versatile and highly creative design. Already adopted by some of the world’s leading LDs, it has been “flying out the door and into rental facilities across the globe” since receiving its world premiere at Frankfurt Prolight+Sound in April.
Fundamentally, the JDC1 has been designed in three sections, which can be controlled independently or as a complete synchronised unit.
The fixture itself contains a traditional single tube element with an incredible clear, bright, white output, derived from 216 white LEDs, and then combines that with a surrounding, format-filling full face of RGB LED power, utilising 1,320 high quality LED’s. Whether running independently, or together these elements offer the brightest output unit its class with retina burning output.
Adding versatility to the design options, the two RGB plates can be divided into six separate ‘pixel’ sections on each plate and then operated with full pixel mapping control. This alone creates stunning effects, whilst the LED tube can pop through with high intensity flashes.
The JDC1 also allows pixel mapping of the LED tube, which is broken down into 12 individually addressable sections. This enables the tube to create motion effects, either when forward facing or through shadow play behind a performer. Whilst the tube is operated in this mode, the RGB plates can give a solid background colour to strengthen the effect.
he JDC1 also offers dynamic movement, with a 16-bit, 185° tilt range, all

Wednesday, 9 August 2017

UK - The Prolight Concepts Group has released the eLumen8 Tour Batten TW. A retro halogen style effect with a substantial 85% power saving. The Tour Batten TW is suitable for rental and event markets with no dimmer required along with no costly lamp changes ensuring years of faultless operation.
“The second model in the eLumen8 Tour Batten Series is the TW (Tuneable White) which features a newly designed combination of LEDs with specially designed collimators and specifically written software to emulate the dimming curve and colour temperature shift of a dimmed halogen lamp,” says Andrew Jeffrey, managing director of The Prolight Concepts Group
“With a maximum usage of 110W the eLumen8 Tour Batten TW is over 85% more efficient than a similar batten using 75W halogen filament lamps.

sx817Congestion relief on wireless highway from RC4
Tuesday, 8 August 2017

USA -Driving on the wireless 2.4GHz highway can be difficult, and crowded wireless roads can result in signal loss and signal degradation. Even in the best situation, wireless congestion can lead to a less than perfect show; in the worst case, it can kill your show.
RC4 Wireless invites users in the US, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand to experience the magic of 900MHz and the new RC4Magic-900SX Series of products, and say goodbye to 2.4GHz wireless congestion.
Like the original RC4Magic-900 Series, RC4Magic-900SX operates in the 900MHz band, a cleaner and less congested RF space providing the best performance possible. For added security, RC4Magic-900SX assigns each user a set of unique, private RC4 System IDs using unique RC4 proprietary technology. RC4 System IDs eliminate any chance of interference from adjacent wireless networks, no matter how close other equipment is or how it is configured.
“The 900MHz band is far, far away from Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, all that stuff that clutters up 2.4 [GHz] more and more every day. All of our 900MHz products deliver the best wireless DMX data integrity to-date, bar none. The RC4Magic-900SX Series gives you all of that--with four times the range and all the other advantages of not being in 2.4GHz mayhem. For our users, it's just plain awesome,” James David Smith, founder and chief product designer at RC4, says.
The RC4Magic-900SX Series features budget-conscious pricing. “We’re offering 900SX at a previously unachievable price point. It's barely more expensive than 2.4GHz systems,” exp

eos-v2Eos family software unlocks output
Wednesday, 2 August 2017

USA - When Eos family console users install software v2.6, they may find that their systems get a serious boost. As announced at CUE, ETC’s professional development conference, Eos v2.6 brings major upgrades for Element consoles, and improvements to Snapshots and other programming features. The release also marks a change in the way the console family handles output upgrades for both new and existing users.
Eos v2.6 dispenses with the notion of incremental upgrades, by which customers could purchase consoles and output upgrades at a number of different levels. From now on, any upgraded console is a fully-upgraded console. Moving forward, each Eos family controller will be sold in two formats: base and unlocked. A base level Gio @5, for example, will have 4,096 (4K) outputs, while an unlocked Gio @5 will have 24,576 (24K) outputs.
If a user wishes to increase a base-level console’s control potential, a one-time, very cost-effective upgrade may now be purchased to expand the desk to its full capacity. What does this mean for users who have already purchased incremental upgrades, or who have purchased a console above its base-level output capacity? Upon installation of v2.6, all existing upgraded desks above the new baseline – even those that have only been upgraded to partial capacity – will be automatically expanded.
Eos v2.6 brings “massive upgrades” to Element consoles, enabling a whole host of features previously reserved for the larger Eos family platforms. For entry-level Element users, day-to-day operation will not change. More adva
