The X-Effects projector provides large-scale 3D effects via a 200W enhanced metal arc source, with a short arc that allows for an output of 5K lumens and a 2,000-hour lamp life. The color temperature is similar to a Xenon source at 6,000K but with nearly two times the luminous effectiveness of a halogen source. The effect itself is created by rotating two “X” size glass gobos off-center of the optical path. This results in a projection that does not appear to have a visible direction or pattern. Onboard potentiometers control the speed and direction of both gobos. The color slot will accept dichroic color filters. Lens trains are available in 30°, 50°, and 70° configurations. Due to the efficiency of the lamp and the design of the optics, all lenses have crisp edges, even for long throws of 100' or more.

Octopod 80 is an LED pod lighting system manufactured by Alkalite and distributed exclusively by Elation in North America. Consisting of a network of eight large lighting pods and a proprietary controller, it uses LED technology to produce a virtually infinite range of colors. Each pod is equipped with 90 LEDs — 30 red, 30 green, and 30 blue — and uses RGB color-mixing technology. With all 90 LEDs turned on, it generates extremely bright white light. The system also provides smooth transitions from one color to the next. Because the LED system produces no infrared and ultraviolet light, heat output is kept to a minimum. The life of the system is rated at 50,000 hours. The yoke-mountable system includes a proprietary Pixel Drive X controller (required for operating the system) and comes in a lightweight aluminum case. Eight signal cables are provided, with 5-pin in/out connections on the rear panel of the controller. A unit-addressing switch is also included. Power consumption is 95W.

Dimmer-Switch joins the recently launched Light-Switch in Artistic Licence's new Wall Mount DMX Controller Range. Designed for lighting control in clubs and lounges, it is housed in a standard wall mount panel and has seven LED-illuminated faders. One fader provides a Grand Master function for overall intensity control. The remaining six faders each play back either a static look or a dynamic sequence. The output is DMX512 with control over all 512 channels. It contains all required electronics, without the need for external boxes, and it can optionally be configured to merge an external DMX512 controller. An example is a club with a live band area. When the stage is in use, Dimmer-Switch routes control from the stage lighting desk to the dimmers. After the show, Dimmer-Switch fades out the stage and fades in the mood lighting.

ATMOSPHERE APS HAZER
The Atmosphere APS™ Haze Generator is a hazing system that uses MDG Neutral™ Fluid heated to a precise temperature and infused with inert carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. The result is non-stop haze with exponentially reduced particle size (0.5 to 0.7 microns), giving it the longest hang time in the industry, according to MDG. It uses less fluid than other hazers on the market and leaves no residue. A built-in Automatic Purging System™ (APS) clears out the heating module(s) after the first heating cycle and every emission of haze, preventing residual build-up and clogging. Two models are available: the Stationary version that can be transformed into a Portable and the Touring version with dual outputs for large venues. Control options are available, as well as a two-channel DMX Interface.
