Avolites

Avolites AI V10Avo's new Ai Version 10 for their flagship Infinity media server was on display and boasts an array of all new visual effects allowing video designers to directly apply the same vibrantly colorful and dynamic treatments onto their own live camera inputs.

A further new feature of Ai v10 is BPM Sync, born from developing the custom integrated control system for the lighting and visuals at JEWEL Nightclub. The in-house Avolites consoles trigger effects in perfect synchronization with the beat - a feature commissioned by Hakkasan's Director of Video Production Ed Shaw and Vice President of Entertainment James Algate. BPM sync allows users to assign a number of beats to a video clip to create their own immersive audiovisual experience.

The software update will also offer a new projection mapping tool, MeshWarp - a combination of Projective Keystone and Grid Warp - which will enable users to quickly warp their content to match the projection surface. This in addition to automap and auto blend puts a powerful array of mapping tools in the hands of every user. Timeline is a major addition for Ai v10, providing precise control of video in a timecode environment, whilst still allowing live control simultaneously.

Avolites Tital V10Also being shown were the powerful features of the Titan v10 software upgrade that is now available to download for free onto all consoles from the Tiger Touch Pro (inclusive) onwards. Some older consoles may be compatible with v10 if an upgrade kit is fitted; if you are unsure please contact Barbizon or Avolites. Titan v10 is the result of a year of research and development by a dedicated team of Avolites developers, enhancing the best-loved features of Titan v9 and introducing a wealth of new ones. Many of the new features have been created in response to user and industry feedback.

Titan v10 also allows the user to view intensity values in one place via the Intensity Grid. This clearly shows levels, source of information, whether increasing or decreasing and tracking information. Also added the set legend Halo, which allows the user to add color borders around fixtures and groups, enabling view fixtures much more easily within the console screen. You can also easily identify which group they belong to.

Another feature is Freeform Workspaces - no longer restricted to just four workspaces per screen, pick any position and size for your windows in seconds and store them to your workspaces for quick access to the information you need.

Titan v10 now offers a very useful UNDO feature, offering a 20 step back history, in addition to a new REDO history, too. Allowing you to massively speed up programming, the user can undo almost any action on the console including delete, merge, move and loads more. View history in the new undo window, and click any point to undo back to that action.

There are also extra directions including random for the hugely popular Key Frame Shapes feature, offering many more looks. Key Frame Shapes allows you to create spectacular effects from scratch. Using palettes or the programmer to define the frames, and powerful tools such as transition curves, phase and spatial direction, it is possible to create radically different looks for each channel in seconds.

And Avolites' Pixel Mapper gets even more powerful with the new Motion Blur effect, which creates trails that follow the element. Users can also now use the faders in Live Shape Editing, to alter the shape with incredible ease.

Titan v10 includes the much-used Multi-User Networking feature, allowing you to connect multiple consoles together to work collaboratively on the same show. A show can have multiple users, each with their own User Settings, Handle Worlds and Selected Key Profiles. When set to Multi-User, consoles can also still be used as backups.

bestboyThe Pocket Console had a great product on display, the Best Boy. This is a Pocket Console built into a water resistant Pelican 1060 Case and comes complete with Pocket Console Playback-8, 9v Battery, 120v P/S and flush mount external DMX and DC ports.

Doug Fleenor Designs

Doug Fleenor introduced a number of new products this year to help with connecting and programming fixtures and control systems.

Fleenor 124 SplitterTheir new 124 splitter is designed as a budget-friendly alternative to their 123 and 125 splitters. The 124 will list at $412 J and features the choice of 3-pin or 5-pin inputs and outputs in a smaller form factor than the 123 or 125. The key difference (other than the form-factor) is that outputs are not individually isolated from each other unlike in the more expensive units.

The Ethernet to Ethernet converter is designed to simplify translation of 4-universes of control between ArtNet and sACN. This stand-alone, 1ru device has (2) etherCON connectors on the back and can be configured with either protocol as the input and output. Configuration is via a web browser connected to either port. List price will be $1,700.

Rounding out the control devices, there is updated firmware for the RAD (Remote Addressing Device) which adds the ability to set personality as well as address, for fixtures using the RDM protocol.

Finally, they have added a 208V version of their DMX1Relay to allow remote switching of a single 20A, 208V circuit.
