PL+S: Robert Juliat brings changes to Frankfurt

Wednesday, 20 April 2016

Germany - Robert Juliat was very happy with its position in the middle of the Lightpower Village in Hall 3.0 where its products attracted a constant stream of visitors for the whole duration of the show.

The array of RJ Zep LED profile and Fresnel fixtures drew much attention from theatre, event and display technicians, as did the Merlin 2500W HMI touring spot and the 300W LED Roxie followspot, which both continue to lead the way in followspot innovation.

But perhaps the biggest scene-stealer was the Dalis LED cyclorama light which brought with it some exciting new developments to the technology that took the show by storm in 2015. In addition to the award-winning Dalis 860 Cyclight, which has been flying off the shelves since last year, Robert Juliat also unveiled a new Dalis footlight batten and a Dalis wash light.

The Dalis LED Footlight 862 is a 150W LED batten with 48 white LED sources arranged in a double row. It shares the Cyclight's exclusive patented optical system of 48 micro optical asymmetric reflectors giving an even spread of light and perfect dimming from 100% - 0%. The two rows are arranged to give long or short throw options, to give low level lighting on performers from the front to the back of the stage. Each row is controlled independently or in groups of four via DMX /RDM, Art-Net and sACN with 16-bit control.

These were the CDC MC Optical Bridge, CDC MC AES3 Stagebox and CDC MC Router software application, and CDC Console V3.01 Software. These were all trailed ahead of the press briefing.

PL+S: Clay Paky celebrates with triple launch

Friday, 15 April 2016

Germany - Clay Paky launched three new products for the first time internationally at Prolight+Sound 2016, all of which aroused considerable interest among industry professionals. The products were the stars of a demo/multimedia light show which accompanied the performances of some musicians and cover bands.

The Scenius Profile is the new beam shaper at the top of the Clay Paky moving head range. Its advanced optical unit and the 1400W OSRAM discharge lamp provide very high light output and an excellent CRI. Its framing system consists of four independent overlapping blades which create shapes of all sizes and proportions by working simultaneously on four different focal planes

The Hepikos is a 700W washlight that combines low power consumption with colour quality, without compromise. Thanks to its PC front lens and narrow 5° beam angle, the fixture can also produce a sharp, thick beam, which may be used for striking, colourful aerial effects.

The SharBar is an advanced moving LED bar with features that transform it into a brand new multi-beam effect light. It fits six 30W powerful new Osram Ostar RGBW LEDs. The optical unit coupled to each LED consists of a motorized system with double mirror: this means each light beam can be pointed independently of the others or locked within a 60° (+/-30°) cone. Thanks to this ingenious, original optical unit

PL+S: PR Lighting's 'robot dance' delights audience

Thursday, 14 April 2016

Germany - PR Lighting reported one of its most successful shows ever at this month's Prolight+Sound Show in Frankfurt.

Visitors to the Messe were hit with promotional banners from the moment they arrived, announcing a competition to win prizes based around five little humanoid robots, which had earlier performed on CCTV's Lunar New Year Gala 2016, celebrating the Chinese New Year. In Frankfurt they were performing to I'm Sexy And I Know It, which was synced to the spectacular lightshow. And after revelling in the show, many of the awe-struck visitors were fortunate enough to leave the booth with souvenirs, prizes and mementos after competing in the company's 'lucky draw'.

Away from this light-hearted crowd pleaser, there was more high technology in evidence, as the serious business was focused on the Chinese company's new BWS series. Using advanced lamp technology these fixtures integrate three features (Spot, Wash and Beam) in a single unit. Regular displays of the new XR 330 BWS, XR 350 BWS and XR 440 BWS, which had been so enthusiastically received at the recent GET Show in Guangzhou, were again breathtaking - and there are new products to follow.

Running in parallel was PR Lighting's evolving LED Studio range, now including (Xpar 150, Pro Stage 150 LED and RGBW). This is such an important series that the company took a dedicated booth facing across

PL+S: Meyer Sound enhances Leo Family

Thursday, 31 March 2016

Germany - Meyer Sound will debut the three latest additions to its line of sound reinforcement solutions at Prolight+Sound 2016: the MJF-208 compact stage monitor, the MDM-5000 high-power distribution module, and the Lyon-WXT extended vertical option.

Also in focus will be the Leopard linear sound reinforcement system's Native Mode, a timesaving advancement that "delivers great sound right out of the box, regardless of the array size".

The self-powered MJF-208 stage monitor incorporates the performance and reliability of the MJF-212A and the MJF-210 into a smaller, lightweight package. Each MJF-208 measures less than 13 inches high and weighs 45 pounds. The monitor delivers impressive power-to-size ratio and very low distortion in a small-footprint, lightweight option for applications that do not demand the extreme output levels of the MJF-210 or the MJF-212A.

"The MJF-208 brings the well-known intelligibility and power of Meyer Sound's stage monitors to applications where a small footprint and low profile are critical," says Luke Jenks, Meyer Sound's director of product management. "With a self-powered stage monitor, the amp package is always the same. The MJF-208 offers a performance consistency that passive monitors just can't guarantee."

Portability and ease of use for the MJF-208 are enhanced by the convenient and reliable MDM-832 distribution module
