A.C. Lighting Inc. Showcases at LDI 2012
A.C. Lighting Inc. will be showcasing their latest technology from a selection of the brands it distributes in North America, including new products from Chroma-Q, Jands, ArKaos and LedGo, at the 2012 LDI show in Las Vegas, Nevada (booth #2007).
Following the unveiling of Chroma-Q's new brand look, the company introduces its latest range of LED lighting technology products -- the Studio Force Phosphor family, which was recently nominated for a PLASA Award for Innovation. The Studio Force Phosphor range utilizes LED technology to provide an equivalent soft edge output to a fluorescent fixture -- up to 8,000 lumens -- developed specifically for use in TV, film, and broadcast studio environments. There's a choice of standard daylight white (5,600K) and variable white (3,200 - 5,600K) color temperature versions, with the variable version offering fine tuning of the green and magenta tints.
Also on show from Chroma-Q is the Inspire LED house light. Fusing entertainment, theatrical, and architectural lighting capabilities, the Inspire was designed to seamlessly transform the look and feel of a performance venue, themed retail space, or house of worship. With fully homogenized color mixing and a choice of three different lens options, the Inspire provides an excellent selection of stunning mixed colors and true whites with no unsightly color separation shadows. Whether used in an entertainment, architectural, or house of worship context, the Inspire provides designers with a tool to create environments that transcend the physical barrier between the venue space and its audience through the creative use of light and color, the company says. With Inspire, effects can range from a subtle shift in color temperature, to bold and dynamic color changes.
New from Jands is the Stage CL console. The Stage CL is an entry-level, self-contained console that has been specifically "made for LEDs." Designed to offer the simplicity of a generic fader desk for both static LEDs and dimmers, the Stage CL includes intuitive color control via a pair of hue/saturation encoders above each fader as well as offering a selection of quick and easy to use preset color swatches and lighting scenes via its LCD touch screen interface.
Following the recent appointment as ArKaos' exclusive North American distributor, A.C. Lighting Inc. will be debuting the ArKaos MediaMaster Pro 3.0 and the Stage Server. MediaMaster Pro is ArKaos' video mapping software, which is capable of turning any powerful computer into a fully-fledged media server. The ArKaos Video Mapper -- an extension for MediaMaster Pro -- allows easy mapping of video onto irregularly shaped surfaces and through multiple outputs. Designed to let you set up mapping projects in very short time frames, Video Mapper makes it incredibly simple to flow visuals around complex objects with just a few clicks.
The Stage Media Server is engineered to ensure rugged reliability and designed for quick and easy setup, the device allows full DMX control via lighting consoles. It ships standard with MediaMaster Express.
On show from LedGo will be their range of modular LED video panels. On display will be the 6mm, 10mm, and 15mm resolutions, which all feature easy "rig and click" hardware for quick assembly and very high refresh rates by using LED drivers to avoid flickering on cameras.
