Scharff Weisberg Lighting has become the first company anywhere to receive a shipment of City Theatrical's PDS-50 wireless power supply units. The units, coupled with LED fixtures using Color Kinetics technology, promise to a open a world of new creative opportunities for lighting designers. The new power/data supplies have already been employed by Scharff Weisberg for the seasonal opening ceremony of Rockefeller Center’s Ice Rink.
“This innovative new tool will allow designers to put fixtures in places that were previously impossible. We are excited to offer this new technology to our clients, and we always enjoy working with the team at City Theatrical,” comments Scharff Weisberg Lighting’s Ben Saltzman.
City Theatrical’s PDS-50 is a power/data supply designed for Color Kinetics ColorBlast, ColorBurst, and iColorCove LED lighting fixtures. It combines both the WDS™ (Wireless Data System) for wireless DMX data and either battery or mains operation, giving it the ability to be a totally wireless DMX-controlled LED lighting fixture.
The low power consumption of LEDs and the reliability of City Theatrical’s WDS give designers and users, for the first time, the ability to light while eliminating the need for AC power, generators, power distribution, power cables, dimmers or data cables. The system can be set up in minutes, has built-in color mixing, and generates low heat.
