Lycian was showing their new Zot LED followspot which will be an equivalent to the Zot 700. Using the same body as the Zot line of fixtures the new unit will have a smooth dimming curve, as well as enhanced lensing for the single-source LED engine. Production is expected to begin during the first quarter of 2018.
A second LED prototype is under development as an equivalent to the Superstar Short Throw. It will contain a single source 650w LED engine. Production is expected to begin around March 2018.
Follow-Me is an independent, affordable, network-based software package that requires no proprietary hardware, sensors or belt packs. Follow-Me allows the users to attach unlimited fixtures from any manufacturer in any orientation to multiple targets from one operating system. Where traditional methods of using FOH or truss mounted follow spots impose costs and rigging implications, Follow-Me offers a cost saving, quick to implement alternative. The functionality of preset spot positioning and the ability to assign any fixture to any target gives users the freedom to be creative. The additional functionality to release all or individual fixtures to full console control by snapping or crossfading them by means of a control channel makes Follow-Me fully flexible.
Follow-Me offers a range of advantages over traditional follow spot usage. Lower labor costs, freedom in lamp positioning, improved follow-spot angles, eliminating kill seats, offering accurate timing for color bump cues, following performers with gobo effects or color chases.
Follow-Me is available in North America through AC Lighting.
Strong Lighting manufacturers specialized solutions for entertainment markets that require one common thing; high powered lighting for key market segments. Strong Lighting’s presentation at LDI 2017 consisted of a number of their industry recognizable products such as their followspot line of Super Troupers. The Super Trouper II offers high performance in a small package and is an extremely compact, powerful Xenon powered followspot. For years the Super Trouper II was considered Strong’s flagship solution but the market demanded more!
At LDI 2017 Strong launched their new Super Trouper III, 3,000-watt FollowSpot improving on almost all of the best features that made the Super Trouper II so popular. Improved balance, cooling systems, and ballasts will complement this new brighter fixture that will be available later this year from Strong Lighting.
