SEACHANGER COLOR CHANGER

The SeaChanger is a dichroic color changer designed for a variety of entertainment lighting applications, in particular those where ETC Source Four® spotlights are specified. The unit consists of four filters — cyan, magenta, and yellow, plus a neutral density filter — in an 8.0"× 6.5" module that fits Source Four fixtures. Using a patented dichroic filter process, these filters can be configured in 100 million different positions, yielding a virtually endless variety of colors. A patented optical coating production method allows micron-scale precision patterning of dichroic coatings on a single substrate — such as a monolithic colored filter for stage lighting — with spatial resolution, transmission efficiency, sharp colors, and filter durability superior to dye-colored gels and other technologies. Software is included that matches the cyan-magenta-yellow combinations to more than 300 Rosco colored gel filters. Similar matching capabilities to GAM, Lee, and other colored gels will soon be available.

Two new trusses have been added to Total Structures' range of industry standard custom trusses. They are versions of the popular 12" and 20.5" box truss. The new ranges, Element 12 and Element 20, are compatible with the original Light Duty and Medium Duty designs. Engineering has significantly enhanced the strength of the 12" version both over short and longer spans. The range is designed in accordance with the ANSI E1.2 standard. As with all equipment manufactured by Total Structures, the new range is fabricated by certified welders and is subject to a stringent quality assurance procedure.

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 lighting console to patch the lights. But what do you do if the lighting console is still in the truck? Or when you need to address a light in the workshop? Or if you want to check the temperature sensor? Jump-Start plugs into the DMX connector and displays all 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, dowse, 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 6 months.

VIRTUAL LIGHT LAB

The VLL 3 is a computer simulation of a large stage lighting laboratory. Lighting design ideas can be explored, compared, presented, discussed, modified, and printed. It provides a way to demonstrate principles of lighting angles and additive color mixing, to explore the effects of color and composition in the context of stage lighting, to explain lighting ideas to a director or choreographer, or just to play in a very well-equipped small theatre. Models can be illuminated from 70 different angles, using a library of over 700 industry-standard filter colors, plus over 1,300 RGB and CMY color mixes. Colors can be changed instantly, light intensities set and balanced, and a breakup template can be dropped into any light. Multiple copies of models can be placed anywhere on the stage, and each copy can be painted with any color and can be lighted individually. A backdrop image can be lit behind them. The stage setups can be recorded as scenes and played back for review and discussion. VLL3 is compatible with Macintosh OSX, Windows 98, ME, 2000, and XP.

When this array is merged with the Bead*light® Technologies (patents pending) diffusion system, containing over 300,000 micro lenses per batten, the result is high definition images or flows of color. The Bead*light® provides little attenuation of light and enables a viewing angle of at least 140°.
