Inner Circle Distribution

MADRIX_3At LDI this year Inner Circle was sneak-previewing the new release of the Madrix software.  If you’re not familiar MADRIX is about allowing users to take lighting control into the third dimension. There’s useful and significant changes to the graphical user interface and everything technical below. This means that you will gain various new possibilities for working with any of your LED projects, may it be 2D or 3D. The new release of the 3.5 software adds additional language support (Spanish & French), improved M2L Color and Tone Range labels for M2L Effects, new MIDI maps, sdded Colorlight A8 & T9 support, and much, more.

wowThe piece that really intrigued designers though is the i-PIX DB 1 Beam.  The DB 1 is so unique, it refuses to be classified as just a lighting fixture or a video screen. Since there’s nothing like it in the world of entertainment technology, the i-PIX DB 1 has created its own category, The Beam Screen.

ElektraLite

elekatralite-miniElekraLite showed a new full‐featured linear strip fixture called the ElektraBar Mini. The engine of the elektraLite ElektraBar Mini are eight powerful 12‐watt 6‐in‐1 LED’s, consisting of red, green, blue, white, amber, and indigo colors.

The elektraBar Mini features individual control of each pixel, allowing for 16 million colors on eight different LED pixels. With precision spacing, the fixture is also ideal for low‐resolution pixel mapping and video wall applications. By mixing color internally, the ElektraBar Mini’s sophisticated diffraction lensing system provide true, blended, single‐color output. Because of this, the color range for pastel and deep blues and purples is intensified with the indigo component.

Elektralite 1018-AI OutdoorAlso on Elekralite’s stand was the 1018‐AI Outdoor featuring an IP65 rating. 1018AI Outdoor had eighteen 12-watt RGBAI hex LEDs  The elektraLite 1018AI has essentially the same engine as the Elektrabar, but packaged as a par fixture in a IP rated housing.  This fixture is also available in white with white cables as a special order item, which makes it blend into existing architecture.

Ayrton / Morpheus

Ayrton / Morpheus had six new products on display at LDI. the MagicDot-R, CosmoPix-R , and VersaPix-RS, all part of the Creative Solutions line.

MagicDot-R-AMAGICDOT™R is the first professional moving head LED luminaire with a single optical collimator. The result is an intense beam of less than 5° using a multi-chip RGBW LED with a light-emitting surface of 8 mm2.
With its cylindrical design, the MAGICDOT™R (patent pending), is capable of continuous double rotation on the pan & tilt axes, allows the user to create groups of luminaires and control each light emitter individually in all directions. Leaving a minimum amount of space between multiple luminaires will make it possible to create configurations never before dreamt of.

LDI also was the US release of the DreamPanel-Shift and DreamPanel-Twin, and Ayrton’s DreamPanel-HD-Box control system.

DreamPanel-Twin-AThe DREAMPANEL™TWIN is a hybrid luminaire with the MAGICPANEL™ on one side and the DREAMPANEL™SHIFT on the other. Capable of continuous double rotation on the pan and tilt axes, the DREAMPANEL™TWIN can alternate between displaying high-definition video images and 3D volumetric lighting effects. The 6 mm pitch of the video side offers the perfect balance of definition required to display video media on stage, of screen size for enabling full HD, and of overall system brightness.

The MAGICPANEL™ side has improved resolution thanks to an 8 x 8 matrix featuring patented 45 mm diameter collimators that can obtain a full 6° angle and centre-beam luminous intensity of over 73 candela per lumen, a record achievement.

The innovative 45 mm optics enable the DREAMPANEL™TWIN to achieve almost the same performance as the MAGICPANEL™R by offering a much higher 64-pixel resolution, ideal for mapping effects. The video side uses the same array as the DREAMPANEL™SHIFT and is equipped with 4096 RGB LED emitters. Their black casing and internal reflector provide absolute contrast and allow for breathtaking graphic effects, while avoiding stray reflections from the other emitters. The two sides are controlled completely separately-the video side through the entirely new HDMI DREAMPANEL™HD-BOX control system, whilst the MAGICPANEL™ side used for 3D volumetric effects, along with the pan and tilt movement, is managed by Art-Net or sACN through an Ethernet link.

City Theatrical

City-T-LDI-15From their new booth City Theatrical had a wide variety of new and updated products to on display at LDI.

SHoW DMX SHoW Baby ® 6 is the latest version of the popular SHoW DMX SHoW Baby  wireless DMX transceiver that is used in entertainment venues all over the world.  SHoW Baby 6 gives users the ability to utilize City Theatrical’s innovative Maximum Bandwidth Technology to help avoid interference.  Show Baby 6Max Technology™ allows SHoW Baby 6 to broadcast in the area of Wi-Fi channel 14, which is not used in the U.S. and is not heavily used in other countries.  This is a simple change from the on board user interface that takes only seconds to make.  Additionally, with six SHoW IDs, even larger multi universe systems can be scaled up, or as many as six independent SHoW Baby 6 systems can be used in the same area without interfering with each other.

QolorPointThe QolorPoint™ Wireless LED Uplighter sets a new standard in temporary wireless event lighting.  With its understated elegant design, each RGBA QolorPoint unit is equipped with our SHoW DMX Max  wireless DMX for control from your lighting console (or can also be operated in stand alone modes) and is rated IP65 for outdoor use. Its 2000 lumen output will light up medium sized trees or three story buildings and its even color mixing, long battery life, and six-unit charging flight case make it the most versatile and feature rich portable LED uplighter available today.

The QolorStrip™ Wireless LED Strip is a one meter long LED striplight  with 18 RGBW LED emitters, providing a very bright 4,000 lumen output. The 18 LEDs can be independently controlled by 72 channels for pixel mapping and can produce vivid chases for eye catching lighting effects.  Control is by SHoW DMX Max wireless DMX built in, or by stand alone control.

Q PinThe QPin 300™ Wireless Magnetic Pin Spot has a very narrow, bright, white, 4.5 degree beam spread that can pinpoint any object, such as a floral centerpiece, painting, photo, or sculpture, and highlight it to draw attention to it. The IP65 rating allows the QPin 300 to be used indoors or outdoors in any weather.  The built in magnetic base adheres to any steel object, and the unit can be dimmed either by a switch on the body of the unit, or remotely via a free smart phone app.

The QFlood 7500™ Wireless LED Floodlight is a very bright, white, IP65 fixture that can operate in any weather, and its 7,500 lumen output will give the light output of a 750w halogen lamp. The lens folds down flat for storage and to protect the LED emitters, and the entire package is only about the size of a 10″ (25 cm) cube. This fixture is perfect for parking lots and long paths at outdoor events when it is impossible to use generators or long extension cords.

CTI’s QolorFlex™ brand of professional LED tape, used on The Tonight Show, Late Night, Saturday Night Live, Best Time Ever, and dozens of other shows, has achieved an ETL listing and all types of QolorFlex LED tape will now be certified as ETL compliant.

Total Structures / Pointman Hoists

Total Structures LDI 15Total Structures was at LDI with their familair line of truss and roofs.  If you need it they can design and build it, just a look at their booth is a testament to that.

What was interesting to see was their new Pointman “S” Model 1/4 Ton (250 Kg) capacity unit, which unlike most of its competition offers internal geared limit switches and an optional second brake, all of which can be contained within its regular sized housing.

pointman_picUnlike its competition, the industry standard lifting speed of 16 feet per minute and true 250 Kg working load capacity are maintained in both three phase (180V to 500V) and single phase units (110V or 220V).  Due to a new and unique profile load chain a 1/4T unit, fitted with 60ft height of lift and fitted with limit switches, weighs less than 35 Lbs complete, which is 25% less than some competitors similar capacity products.

Pointman’s line of hoists already have an impressive factory standard IP65 ingress protection rating can now be improved all the way to an industry beating IP67 on the 1/2T, 1T and 2T capacity units.  This rating, assuming the addition of suitable electrical connectors, allows the unit to be fully submerged under water to a depth of 1m for a period of 30 minutes.  This feature is now made possible via the optional addition of a low cost Gore brand vent that allows the equalization of pressure within the sealed hoist.  This feature, used in conjunction with the standard characteristics of fully sealed end covers, water tight cable glands and a factory installed load sheave drain now give the Pointman the highest possible IP rating of any conventional electric chain hoist in the entertainment technology market.

ColorSource_spot_ylw-350ETC’s new profile the ColorSource Spot LED luminaire  outperforms other four-color LED profiles, thanks to its precise combination of red, green, blue and lime emitters. ETC applied its extensive color-mixing knowledge to the fixture, to ensure that it can achieve brighter, richer and more believable colors than other budget LEDs, especially in the warm end of the color spectrum. Bright, punchy, with incredible output, the ColorSource Spot is also more dependable. You don’t have to worry about it fading over the course of a show, because it compensates for thermal droop to keep the color going strong.

USHIO / Zylight

ent-takumi2Did you know that Ushio is the leading manufacturer of follow spots in Japan, dating back to 1965?  In their booth, Ushio was showing the Takumi 2000 Xenon Follow Spot.  The cool thing about this follow spot is that the iris will close all the way, creating a nice effect onstage.  Additionally, when the iris, shutter, or douser are closed completely, the voltage auto-regulates to cut the lamp output to half, saving on lamp life as well as wear and tear on internal components.

ent-zylightf8-BUshio is distributing Zylight and they had some new products. Zylight’s F8-B is the UV version of their popular F8 IP-54 rated fixture that combines Ushio’s proprietary Tru365™ LED module with the flexibility and control of a focusable glass Fresnel lens. Built on the 100% silent and field-proven F8 platform, the F8-B delivers the latest in blacklight LED technology with no lenses to change, no filters to check, and no fixed beam patterns to limit your creativity. Emitting a powerful narrow band of UV light, that’s the power of Tru365™.

ent-zylightf83002For the first time we saw the new F8-300 giving you the punch in a large studio or on location. It’s output rivals a 600 watt HMI Fresnel or more than a 2k Tungsten bulb, all while drawing only 300 watts of power. With passive cooling, The F8-300 uses no fan for a completely silent experience.  Built upon the Award-winning F8 platform, the F8-300 continues the tradition of combining high quality optics with a special blend of Quantum nanoparticles to deliver a high quality of light matched only by traditional sunlight and incandescent bulbs, while using a fraction of the energy. Plus, the F8-300 can perform in rain, snow and sun with ease, thanks to it’s IP54 rating.  The F8-300 also has ZyLink™ affording wireless control all of the F8-300’s settings from across the studio or stage from the palm of your hand.

Swisson

Swisson XSHSwisson showed their new XSH Hybrid Splitter allows for distributing power and a DMX signal within one single unit.  The XSH features a powerCon 20A input and an XLR input and four pairs of powerCon 20A and XLR outputs. This combination comes especially handy with modern DMX setups, where so called ‘hybrid cables’ with XLR and powerCon connectors are frequently used.  The XSH comes with a built-in amp meter which makes it a breeze to keep track of the amount of power that is consumed, allowing its user to take action before the cables are operated at their limits. With the RDM option it is also possible to remotely monitor the current draw.

XPD-28m-640Swisson’s XPD-28 is the latest and at the same time the most sophisticated Swisson splitter. The RDM capable splitter features two DMX inputs (A and B) and eight DMX outputs, which are intuitively assignable to any of the two universes at the push of a button. At each output port, a status LED signals by its color, to which universe the port currently is assigned. Amber stands for universe A and Blue for universe B.  Even more detailed status information is provided by an OLED display, which is for example capable of showing the refresh rate or a graphical overview of the received channel values. In conjunction with an encoder wheel and eleven additional push buttons, the OLED display also helps keeping the XPD-28 easy to operate in spite of its versatility.
