PRODUCTION ADVANTAGE, INC. THE BEST SEAT
The Best Seat lamp insertion tool (patent-pending) is designed to facilitate the safe installation of HPL 575W and 750W lamps into their corresponding luminaire sockets without damaging the lamp. It eliminates the danger of contaminating the lamp envelope with oily residue and reduces breakage when a lamp is first seated. In the unlikely event that the lamp should break during installation, the glass envelope will be contained in the plastic housing helping to prevent injury. The tool is ergonomically designed for efficient use and comes with a safety ring to attach to a lanyard for safe use in the air.

ARTISTIC LICENCE JUMP-START
Jump-Start is a small, hand-held RDM and DMX512 programmer. As the new Remote Device Management (RDM) protocol gains acceptance, the DIP switches on the rear of moving lights will gradually disappear as RDM allows the console to patch the lights. But what if you need to address a light in the workshop, or you want to check the temperature sensor? This device plugs into the DMX connector and displays important information: start address, footprint, personality, sensors, temperature, voltage, lamp hours, etc. You can also plug it into the lighting rig and auto-patch all the lights. It can also ask the light to strike, douse, or self-test, or it can operate as a straightforward DMX tester. Individual channels can be set to a level, or they can ramp continuously. Channel settings can also be stored to memory. Talk time is around 12 hours, and standby time is about six months.
