LDI brought the debut of the SolaSpot Pro 1500, the latest in the SolaSpot range of Automated LED luminaires from High End Systems. Boasting 20,000 lumens using a 400w LED engine coupled with features including framing shutters, CMY color mixing, linear CTO, two gobo wheels, animation effects, a prism, an iris, frost and a 8 to 45 degree zoom range make this unit a viable option for those looking for an LED option to replace their arc lamp profile movers..
Another first showing, the MMS-100, is High End’s moving mirror system with an Axon Media Server on-board. Using a custom front surface and optically flat custom mirror designed for a 98% reflection of light , the MMS range delivers sharp, bright and incredibly detailed High Definition images from the projector of your choosing ( of course High End recommends a BARCO projector). The MMS range is controlled over DMX or Art-Net and in the near future will link up with Barco’s projector tool set allowing for quick and simple setup in many applications. The projectionist will be able to position and store presets directly within the Barco suite of software. There are two versions the MMS-100 including an Axon HD media server on-board and the MMS-200 being only the mirror.
For the first time in the US, High End unveiled the SHAPESHIFTER range. 7 independently controlled modules housed in one moving fixture create a multitude of highly defined beams coming together to form an array of dynamic visual effects. All aspects of the fixture are designed for speed to provide a palette of creative options available, all from one fixture. High End Systems has provided almost 150 Module Macros available to the user, written to provide a fast and intuitive way to create powerful effects without starting from scratch. 4 units are available with either RGB or White LEDs, and either 126 or 63 Cree XPE2 LEDs.
