ENTTEC Pixel LinkEntTec had a variety of their fixtures, such as the Aleph series as well as the architectural BL fixtures, on display in addition to their control software and hardware (including the new Ethergate Mk3) but the main focus of the booth was on their PLink (Pixel Link) control hardware and Pixel Solutions products.

The form factors for these LED display products includes flexible tape, dots, rigid strips, and square PCBs all utilizing RGB LEDs specially selected to smoothly blend to a wide range of colors. All of the products use the PLink protocol to provide addressing of individual pixels rather than controlling the strip, string, or panel as a whole. Obviously this can require a huge number of DMX channels (170 pixels per universe) so EntTec has introduced the Pixelator LED controller to distribute up to 48 universes from a single, 1u unit.

ENTTEC Pixie DriverInput to the Pixelator can be ArtNet, sACN, ESP, or KiNET. Output is carried over Cat6 cable to a PLink Injector which merges DC power at 5, 12, or 24V (from an external power supply) with the PLink signal to control the LEDs.

For smaller installations, there is also a 2 universe Pixie Driver with a built-in power supply and DMX or USB input and is available in 5, 12, or 24V output LED drivers.


Fiilex Q500 LED FresnelFiilex introduced their entire line of revolutionary LED fixtures for the television and film industry at LDI 2014. Part of the innovative engineering of their parent company DiCon, these Fiilex fixtures are backed by over 15 years of research and development into efficient LED technology that caters to the demands of the industry it thrives in. Demonstrated in their booth was everything from on board camera lighting to a high powered LED Fresnel and even an interesting RGB LED FiberLamp product with different types of power sources to control it. The Q500 is most certainly their flagship product boasting an amazing 750W equivalent output while only using 185W and is Color tunable between 2800-6500K via on board controls or DMX. For those in need of lighting solutions in the elements, the P180E and the P360EX fixtures will perform in the rain and even zero degree temperatures.

Fiilex P200 Fiber IlluminatorFiilex was most excited about their new Fiber Lamp line which introduced 4 different style power supplies to power their solution for fiber optic illumination. Without a doubt, Fiilex is growing their arsenal of tools and is definitely worth learning more about.


GaffGunThe GaffGun team made s quiet splash at WFX but came to LDI in full force. For those of you that haven't seen the saves time to lay gaffer's tape over cables or taping marley, it simplifies your job while saving time, money and your back. It works so well because it utilizes a patent-pending CoreLok™ technology, you can use any type or size of GaffGun™ tape on the same device. Cables don't even have to be straight - the GaffGun™ straightens and centers your cable(s) and then lays tape on them.

We also got news that GaffGun core tape will be available from our friends at ProTapes. There are also temp core inserts available should you accidentally run out of tape at your facility or on tour.
