AC Lighting

Follow-Me is a cost-effective Art-Net based calibration software package that utilizes moving lights as follow-spots. Not only can Follow-Me be used to follow one or more performers with multiple moving heads but individual fixture selection offers the additional functionality of preset positioning for solo’s and surprise performances. 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 also solves weight issues on smaller roofs where typical truss seats Inc. operators are too heavy or deep to implement. Follow-Me benefits lighting designers- technical producers and event planners anywhere performers require illumination and is easily implemented on touring productions, festival stages, TV studios, and concert halls.

The Par Z Move is a 200W warm white LED wash unit with a zoom range of 9-43 degrees. This fixture communicates over 3 Pin and 5 Pin DMX and has an external diffuser slot.

ADJ COB Cannon WashThe COB Cannon Wash ST is a 150watt RGBA LED fixture with an 80-degree beam angle. This fixture is similar to the Wash DW, just shorter. It includes a lens kit to convert the beam angle to either 40 degrees or 50 degrees. Communication is done over 3pin or 5pin DMX and weighing only 9 pounds, its light output at 2 meters is a stunning 1970 LUX.

The Par ZP120 RGBW fixture is similar to the previously released ZP120, with now the added function of color! This modern par can has a 115w quad COB LED, output comparable to a 1000w par. Inside the housing, there is an adjustable slider for beam angle control from 7 to 25 degrees. Another great feature is that it includes 64 color macros for easy manual plug and play operation.

CAST Software

The team at CAST Software has been working on Black Trax for 10 years and their efforts have really paid off. The new Black Trax server is loaded with features that can be used in every production environment. Black Trax uses motion capture cameras to detect light pulses from tiny infrared beacons. The Black Trax Server uses these pulses to calculate the exact location of the subject in a 3D environment. This information can then be transmitted to all kinds of external devices such as: moving lights, audio systems, Pan Tilt Zoom Cameras, gaming consoles, and media servers. The end result is the ability to seamlessly incorporate all of these products into one spectacular high tech performance.
