Aqua Visual FX
Aqua Visual FX Inc.
From Pyrotek Special Effects Inc. and Laser Design Productions Inc., Aqua Visual FX is a water screen that creates a waterfall billboard to exhibit custom-animated graphics, shapes, and text images through a programmed sequence of water droplets. The system comprises three major components: a water-management system that controls water cycling and programming automation through optical control sensors; a central computer system that manages to store and program custom show sequences and images to correspond to the user's creative needs and applications; and a series of intelligent droplet controllers that will pixilate the flowing streams of water. The water-management system includes automatic and manual optical control sensors that allow complete water cycling and creative programming automation. The water modules are manufactured in 6' lengths with the ability to interconnect to produce custom water screen lengths (12', 24', 36', and 48'). Additional 2' sections can be designed for custom-tailored requirements. Aqua FX also provides a projection surface to choreograph custom laser designs and Brash 3-D multimedia images.

Z90 Intelligent LED
The Z90 features Zylight's exclusive, switchable tungsten and daylight output in an LED fixture designed for film and video production. Only slightly larger than its predecessor — the Z50 — and drawing the same power, the palm-sized unit also features a new color gel mode allowing users to select any one of more than 400 industry-standard theatrical gel numbers from four manufacturers. Color selection is via an integrated digital display, and presets are provided for saving favorites. Wireless control is built into each unit, and users can choose from ten independent, wireless ZyLink channels to create flexible and scalable multi-light installations. Units can be wirelessly linked together, forming a large soft source of light. Through its partnership with Color Kinetics, Zylight uses proprietary color-mixing technology.
The Delta Hazer features a water-based fluid, 1,000W heat exchanger, and a high-quality blower. Turning one knob varies the fan and pump speed for optimum output, and the unit runs continuously, even at high speeds. Features include onboard DMX, low fluid sensor, auto-timers, and continuous self-cleaning. The hazer holds a 4-liter bottle.
EQZ450 Universal Equalizer
EQZ450 is a universal equalizer interface designed to drive computer or video signals over long distance cables to monitors, screens, projectors, and other display devices. It was developed to handle any kind of input format and synchronization (RGsB, RGB/S, component, YUV-HD, RGB, or HV), and it features a booster/equalizer function. Extremely high-resolution video signals (computer, SD, or HD) can be driven up to 300m/1,000'. A high-grade compensation cable function offers continuous tuning to precisely fit the cable length and quality. The unit also features an RGB HV input on BNC or HD15F with loop monitoring. The equalized output is available on either BNC or HD15. Features include 450MHz bandwidth and built-in power supply.
HD- and PC-to-HDMI Video Scaler
The 1T-AVPC-HDMI HD- and PC-to-HDMI video scaler outputs resolutions up to 1080p. AnalogPC inputs to WUXGA @ 60Hz are accepted, along with analog YPbPr/YCbCr HDTV inputs to 1080p. The digital inputs accept HDMI and DVI-D signals up to 165MHz, plus digital PC RGB signals up to UXGA @ 60Hz. It is also RoHS-compliant. Dual-scaling engines are used with 8-bit triple-ADC Phase-Locked Loops. An integrated DVI/HDCP/HDMI-compliant receiver is central to the processor, along with 3D motion adaptive de-interlacers. Also included are a 3:2 pull-down, 2:2 pull-down detection/recovery, and 3D noise reduction. Audio processing is accomplished by integrating either analog stereo audio (R/L), PC stereo audio, or an auxiliary stereo audio input into the HDMI output data stream. The unit may be operated from the front panel switch matrix or via the supplied infrared remote control.
BeamWare 2 for Iconyx
BeamWare 2, the latest software upgrade for Iconyx digitally controlled array systems, displays horizontal and vertical coverage for a single array. Plan views can be imported in a variety of graphic formats. Tools such as Auto-Focus allow designers to define and steer multiple beams from each Iconyx IC8 array module. When a design is ready, the software calculates the FIR filters required to produce the beams and aiming angles and uploads them to the arrays via RS-232. Each FIR filter is derived from a new calculation engine that has been optimized during extensive real-world measurements. Version 2 is a Windows application allowing the system designer to specify both plan and section views of the audience area(s), build and hang a virtual Iconyx array, and optimize coverage by defining and aiming one or more beams of acoustic energy.
CobraNet Interface For Vi Series
