Show Designer 2CF

Show Designer 2CF features a built-in compact flash drive, which lets users store the controller's entire memory on one 64MB compact flash card. Offering control of more than 1,024 DMX channels, it has two universe outputs that can be “split” to run different presentations in two separate areas. Suited to concerts, stage productions, and clubs, it commands up to 48 fixtures (up to 32 channels each) with 1,152 programmable chases, 4,752 programmable scenes, 1,152 programmable shows, and 1,152 programmable presets. It can operate a wide range of DMX-compatible lighting products and comes pre-programmed with a library of fixture settings. There are also fixture profiles available for download for more detailed channel information. The controller is designed for regular tabletop-style use but also includes removable rubber rails that transform the unit into a six-space, 19" rack mount. Other features include a pan/tilt joystick, eight faders for scene master playbacks, RS232 port for PC interfacing, and RCA audio input for chases.

Martin Professional
MAC 700 Profile

The MAC 700 Profile is a mid-sized moving head that is designed to fill the gap between the 575W MAC 550 and the 1200W MAC 2000 Profile. The MAC 700 combines a 700W double-ended lamp and glass reflector technology. MAC 700 lenses come with optical coatings to decrease light loss and to provide a better projection quality. A full CMY color mixing system and eight-position color wheel are included, and all colors are replaceable. It includes the same gobo animation system pioneered by Martin with the MAC 2000 Performance. A fully motorized zoom is capable of beam angles from 14° to 30°. The MAC 700 houses a combined dimmer/shutter, a motorized iris, and a replaceable, rotating, three-facet prism. A new pan and tilt motor driver system provides speed for a mid-sized fixture. Its intelligent position correction system automatically returns the fixture to its original position if knocked out of place. The MAC 700 is only available with electronic ballast for flicker free operation, lower weight, extended lamp life, and a power saving mode.

Several chain drop positions are linked by the same drive mechanism that can be used to lift lighting bars, stage sets, and curtains of various lengths. The lifting mechanism is fully integrated within its own truss structure for easy fixing into existing spaces. The device can be simply placed on a structure and moved manually, and it has a system of trolleys for deployment of units to the required position above a scenic space.

SOUND

Sennheiser
K+H Wireless Loudspeaker

The Klein+Hummel freePORT PAS 400, a new wireless, self-powered sound reinforcement speaker system, offers intelligibility for speech and music reproduction in outdoor and indoor gatherings of up to 400 people. Up to four Sennheiser Evolution Wireless G2 compact receivers or two rack-mount diversity receivers may be built into two of its compartments. An onboard high-power rechargeable battery with integrated circuitry allows up to 13 hours of wireless mode operation. The integrated mixer offers level control of two microphone inputs — one with phantom power — on Neutrik-Combo connectors, an auxiliary line level input with pairs of RCA connectors for both playback and recording, plus a dedicated channel for the Sennheiser receivers. The amplifier is based on a three-chassis design that powers the system's dual 6.5" woofers (1" horn) with a 15W/four Ohms speaker output. Its amplifier, in combination with efficient speakers, affords high SPL (116dB), optimal coverage, and feedback immunity.

Soundcraft
MH2 Dual-Mode Console

MH2 is one of the few consoles at its price level to offer VCA grouping. It features a high channel count within a compact frame, generous 11×4 matrix, eight VCA groups, and LCR panning. It has eight subgroups, ten auxiliary busses, and six mute groups. Available in 24, 32, 40, and 48 mono channel frame sizes — all with four full-function stereo inputs — the new console benefits from a monocoque chassis with individual channel PCBs, providing a mixer solution for applications that demand both a large number of channels and small footprint. As with the larger MH3 and MH4, the MH2 can be switched from FOH mode to monitor mode. Four stereo returns, each with a four-band EQ section, feed the main mix busses.
