Measuring just 130x130x120mm and weighing 1.7kg, the ID14 is the latest addition to the company’s ID Series of compact speaker cabinets. ID14’s dual concentric design features a coaxial 4” LF driver with 1.3” voice coil, and a 1.4” diaphragm for the HF. The speaker is offered with two directivity options: a 100°x100° horn as standard, with an asymmetric alternative offering 90°x140° dispersion. Like the series’ larger ID24, the new speaker is housed in a weather resistant polyurethane enclosure.
ID14 can be used standalone or in a distributed system, for front-fill, infill or delays. Thanks to availability in black, white or another bespoke RAL colour, the speaker is particularly suitable for installations and can be a creative and unobstructive solution in historic buildings, houses of worship, airports and hotels. The speaker can also be used for immersive and surround sound applications.
When paired with the companion subwoofer ID S108, they form a three-way system, ideal for small clubs and bars.

hurricane-bubble-haze-x2-q6Chauvet DJ doubles bubbles with Hurricane X2
Thursday, 30 July 2020

USA - Releasing copious amounts of haze-filled bubbles, the Chauvet DJ Bubble Haze generated fun and excitement throughout the event industry when it was introduced in 2019. Now the company has taken bubbles to the next level with the introduction of the Bubble Haze X2 Q6.
Doubling the effect and volume of its predecessor, the new product features six quad-coloured (RGB + UV) LEDs that illuminate bubbles, haze or haze-filled bubbles. The new effect features twin blowers with variable-speed loft fans that push bubbles up into the air.
Chauvet DJ’s Always-Ready technology means the effect can run continuously to keep the party going. The Hurricane Bubble Haze X2 Q6 is not just about fun. It also has a practical side.

lam1suiteL-Acoustics releases M1 Suite tools set
Tuesday, 28 July 2020

France - In tandem with the recent release of LA Network Manager 3, L-Acoustics has introduced the M1 suite, a comprehensive set of measurement and monitoring tools. From data acquisition through system tuning to live monitoring, M1 harnesses the power of the manufacturer’s Milan-certified P1 processor and amplified controller hardware to deliver a streamlined system calibration process as well as realtime performance monitoring.
The M1 suite pairs system measurement and control software to work natively as one seamless solution. Providing an original, reliable, and more efficient method for calibration, M1 allows users to expand their capabilities and optimise their time, says the company.
Ideal tuning of a venue requires both data capture and analysis. For most systems on the market, calibration processes typically involve estimating optimum EQ and alignment settings, measuring these setting via mic placement, then capturing the data. For each setting, mic placement and capture must be performed multiple times to obtain measurements throughout an entire venue. Any adjustments made to EQ or alignment would naturally require the user to repeat the mic placement and capture process.
M1 is a dual-channel FFT measurement platform that automates this process -sequentially muting and unmuting different parts of the system that need to be measured, capturing audio, labelling measurements, and storing data to the proper groups automatically. With M1, mic placement and capture throughout the venue is done only once. Data is acquired and compiled in the

Thursday, 23 July 2020

UK - ChamSys has introduced the MagicQ MQ500M Stadium console. This new desk, which offers 256 universes of control direct from the console without the need for additional processing nodes, gives designers and programmers greater flexibility at the highest level of show control, says the company.
The MagicQ MQ500M Stadium incorporates an array of software features that support motorised playback faders, playback encoders and customizable illumination. Thanks to its motorized function, the playback section can be used for multiple purposes with shortcut buttons to change the function.
With 15 motorised faders and 15 playback encoders per bank - and up to six banks - a total of 180 playbacks can be accessed at the touch of a button. RGB LED illumination enables different colours to be assigned to each individual fader and playback encoder enabling unlimited customisation.
In keeping with its versatile design, the MQ500M Stadium console supports many different fader modes in addition to the playback mode, enabling the playback section to be used in a wide variety of applications.
The programmer modes give access to intensities for each patched fixture, to groups of fixtures, or to individual channels of a fixture. The selected modes enable instant access to the intensities or channels of the currently selected fixtures.
The master modes provide instant master control of individual fixtures or groups of fixtures without having to pre-program masters, making it ideal for those live moments when lights are flaring in cameras or key lights n

Thursday, 23 July 2020

USA - ADJ’s new Pixie Strip Series is now shipping worldwide. The series includes three sizes of pixel strip bars, which can be combined together in any combination to fit with the dimensions and design of a stage’s set or venue’s interior design.
The largest model, the Pixie Strip 120 measures 2m (78.8”) in length and features 120 tri-colour RGB SMD LEDs. The mid-size bar in the series is the Pixie Strip 60, which is 1m (39.4”) long and is fitted with 60 LEDs. Finally, the smallest model in the series is the Pixie Strip 30, a 0.5m bar that features 30 LEDs.
All three models have the same 16.5mm pixel pitch and are designed such that seamless pixel spacing can be achieved when any two fixtures are placed end-to-end. To aid with setting this up, the units are all fitted with magnetic end caps that will snap adjacent fixtures together to create a seamless run of perfectly spaced LEDs from one Pixie Strip to the next. The LEDs across all three models offer a resolution of eight bits per colour (24 bits per pixel) and a refresh rate of 44,000Hz, allowing flicker free operation for TV, film and other broadcast applications.
