City Theatrical/A.C.T. Enterprises Moving Light Vertical Hanger
Ever wish you could hang that moving light in a different position, get a better shot around other equipment, hang straight out from the truss, or sculpt the look of the moving light fixtures in the rig? A.C.T. introduces the Moving Light Vertical Hanger. Based on its Vertical Extension Tubes (VETS), the Moving Light Vertical Hanger combines some very simple elements to create a fast, flexible, and strong system to hang a variety of moving lights from truss. You get five sets of extension tubes (3", 6", 12" 18" 24"), two interface plates, an extension channel, and a variety of nuts and bolts.
The interface plates are drilled for use with the standard 12" × 12" box truss. The extension channel allows the user to hang larger moving lights (e.g. The Studio line from High End) or hang the Moving Light Vertical Hanger from 18" truss. The interface plates always have three tubes (of the same length) between them establishing the classic three-point hang for stability. When the user's clamps are bolted directly to the extension tubes the user has created a very stable platform to hang the fixture. Extension tubes can also be combined with other extension tubes using the 3" adapter creating different lengths.
The user's clamps can be mounted in a variety of patterns that fit the user's need. Typical hangs include: a single pipe using two clamps, a 12" truss using three clamps, an 18” truss using the extension channel and two clamps.
The Moving Light Vertical Hanger is also capable of accepting A.C.T.'s award-winning Moving Light Hanger System parts. Each interface plate can be outfitted with Moving Light Hangers, making it easy to mount the moving light to the Vertical Hanger and also the Moving Light Vertical Hanger to the truss or pipe.

Artistic Licence Tour-Lynx
Tour-Lynx from Artistic Licence is a mid-span power inserter for 10BaseT Ethernet. It is used to add low voltage power (24V) to the Ethernet cable and connects between the hub and the powered Ethernet devices. Tour-Lynx is primarily intended for touring racks. The 2U high 19" rack mount unit will normally be installed into a rack next to the Ethernet hub. This allows for front panel patch cables to make the hub connection. The powered Ethernet devices are then connected to the front panel Neutrik Ethercon RJ45 Ethercon connector. This supplies both power and data. Power to each output is limited to 400mA by an electronic fuse. A total of 12 ports are provided. These are split into two banks of six. A power supply is required for each bank of six outlets.

Doug Fleenor Design Pork Chopper
The Pork Chopper from Doug Fleenor Design is an economical way to increase the total number of control channels of a High End Systems Wholehog II console. The Pork Chopper decodes the special Overdrive signal that three of the four output ports are capable of producing. When connected to an output port producing Overdrive it decodes the signal into two DMX512 universes. Connecting Pork Choppers to three output ports increases Wholehog II channel capacity from 2,048 to 3,584 channels. That's an additional 1,536 channels. DMX isolator mode allows Pork Chopper to act as a DMX512 isolated splitter when the Overdrive signal is not present. The tenth-inch powder coated aluminum chassis is built tough for years of service.
