Le Maitre

LeMaitre EcohazerLe Maitre has been designing and manufacturing stage pyrotechnics and fog, smoke and haze machines since 1976 so needless to say, they know a thing or two about special effects! Their presentation for LDI 2014 included many of their staple products such as the Hazemaster, GForce, MVS Hazer, Freezefog Pro and G300 units all on display and working for customers to see. Some of their Flame and Pyrotechnic units were on hand in the booth but for obvious reasons, not shooting flames 10ft into the show attendees. Le Maitre was most excited to talk about their brand new hazer, the Ecohazer.

The Ecohazer is considered by Le Maitre to be the most energy efficient water-based hazer on the market with an incredibly low power consumption of only 100-150 watts. Not only have they found a way to reduce the power consumption but also reduce the fluid consumption without compromising on the output. In fact the output is that of a 400cc/hr hazer but only uses 2cc to 50cc/hr consumption. Self detecting 2 Channel DMX makes this a great production or install unit especially since they have reduced the fan noise as well.

Le Maitre is also working on a way to create scented haze by adding "scent bags" to the input fans of the units. The demo smelled good!

Lee Filters

Still going strong in 2014 making their full line of gel and dichroic filters, in addition to their new “LED Correction” gels that they released last year.

One area that they have made great strides in has been revamping their website and catalog offerings. Alisa Kasmer, the Marketing Director for LEE, created a nifty one page flier that basically shows every product LEE makes, as well as, links to their new website and apps that allow you to pick your favorite colors.

Also check out their newly created “Mood Boards” which basically break colors down into families. Perfect for those new designers starting out looking to pick a bunch of colors that work really well together!

Lee has also recently updated the iOS and Android app called Lee Swatch - it's worth a look!
