Color Kinetics Video System Manager
Video System Manager is an integrated software and hardware solution designed to produce Video With Light™ in entertainment lighting applications. It allows video-based, Ethernet control of Color Kinetics' intelligent solid-state lighting systems. The system converts standard live video signals from a variety of media sources — including media servers, DVD players, camcorders, and personal computers — and streams the video content to LED-based lights, scaling to accommodate large installations that may exceed thousands of individually controlled LED nodes. It is compatible with Ethernet-based networks that apply Color Kinetics' technology, including LED-based lights developed by Color Kinetics' OEM and licensing partners. The system is comprised of two components: Video Management Tool, a software interface that maps each light or node in a system as a single, controllable pixel; and Video System Engine, a hardware controller that processes live digital video and maps the video stream to the layout of lights.

Sigma Services Prism and Cryo-Jet
Sigma Services and Le Maitre Special Effects have agreed to a new distribution partnership on Sigma's new Prism Multi Color Flame and Cryo-Jet, a CO2 effect. The Prism is a flame projector that allows up to four different colors at the press of a button. It is DMX-controlled using five channels from any standard DMX output. It uses a 1lb. cylinder of propane to keep the pilot flame lit. With the propulsion of compressed air, it aspirates specialty-formulated oil into the air, igniting as it passes the pilot flame. The oils are available in six colors with more in development. It also employs the latest in safety controls. The CO2 Cryo-Jet has been in development at Sigma for more than two years. In the past, the industry used large quantities of CO2 at high pressures causing the valve to freeze. Cryo-Jet overcomes this obstacle by using a specifically designed valve. It can be used for an array of applications from night clubs to special effects.

American DJ RotoPod 250 and ColorPod 250
The newly upgraded RotoPod 250 and ColorPod 250 moonflowers are based on the design of the RotoPod and ColorPod moonflowers, but the sound-activated 250s burn longer, without duty cycle interruption, and more brilliantly than the originals. Both the all-white RotoPod 250 and multi-dichroic ColorPod 250 are now illuminated with a 250W lamp. Suited for mobile DJs, bands, and nightclubs, these fixtures also incorporate an all-new electronic transformer that weighs much less than the previous metal unit. This, combined with their high-tech plastic case design, makes them compact, lightweight, and easy to transport. Equipped with a new high-velocity fan, they will remain cool all night. These are plug-and-play, sound-active effects, offering a three-position FX switch. Users can set them in either Static, Sound-Active, or Continuous Rotation operation modes to meet a wide range of applications. Hanging brackets are also provided. Built-in circuit breakers protect both units from unexpected power surges.
