A.C. Lighting Ltd. Chroma-Q Cascade


The latest addition to the Chroma-Q™ range of color changers is the Cascade™, which utilizes two internal gel strings and the latest technology to provide over 300 usable colors from a single unit. Offering the same level of reliability and affordable technology, the new compact and lightweight Cascade offers many new features and enhancements, creating the most versatile Chroma-Q to date.

A Universal Mounting System (UMS) eliminates the need for individual mounting plates, and by simple adjustment makes this unit instantly compatible with a range of fixtures with up to a 7" (175mm) lens, suitable for up to a 50° beam angle (without light loss). The Cascade is supplied complete with gel strings and benefits from an integrated heat shield which increases gel string longevity, particularly beneficial for higher-wattage lanterns.

The unit additionally features two operational modes, creative and library, selectable via dipswitches. The creative mode operates by using a CMY color-mixing method. This method relies on having a full spectrum source (white light) and mixing two variable-density subtractive filters at different saturations to achieve hundreds of colors from a single color changer, making frustrating advanced color selection a thing of the past. The library mode offers quick access to 100 preprogrammed colors presented on a single DMX channel.

Operating from existing Chroma-Q PSO8 and PS18/2 power supply units, the new Cascade can work simultaneously with any other Chroma-Q unit on the same circuit. The Cascade eliminates the need for costly custom gel strings, making it ideal for the short-term rental market. Designers like the flexibility of fine-tuning their color selection throughout productions without any cost implication. Chroma-Q color changers are exclusively distributed around the world by A.C. Lighting, Ltd.

Martin Professional MAC 2000 Wash Barndoor Option
Martin has developed a fully motorized and fully closing set of barndoors for the MAC 2000 Wash. The barndoors come fitted with a wide-angle lens standard but can be fitted with the fresnel or PC lenses that are supplied. Quarter-turn screws allow users to easily remove the standard front lens and replace it with the barndoor module, complete with lens. No cables are needed as the module plugs directly into a socket already equipped on every fixture. An individual DMX channel controls each of the barndoors' four blades. Additionally, each blade can fully close over the beam of the fixture. For further flexibility, an additional DMX channel gives rotational control over the entire module, allowing it to be rotated through 100°. This gives the possibility to align both the small and large doors to any angle required.

Antari Fazer X Series
The Antari Fazer X-310 is equipped with a cast-aluminum heater, a quiet pump, and a controllable twin fan. The new heater is so effective that one liter of fluid can provide up to two hours of continuous fogging at 30% output. The fan volume can also be adjusted, allowing it to operate silently. The Fogger X-510 can generate more fog due to its large heater block. The liquid level sensor will stop the unit in order to protect the pump whenever the liquid is running low. A common control interface can be used with any member of the X series product line. Be it DMX or wireless, just plug in the corresponding module and you are ready to fog.
