A.C. Lighting Inc. Unveils New Innovations at USITT 2009

Following the enormous success of the Chroma-Q® Color Block™ LED fixture with rental companies and end users alike, the manufacturer has combined the product’s core elements of modularity and versatility with new single color RGBA optics, 530 lumens output (almost double the original model) and theatrical grade dimming to create the exceptional feature set of the Color Block 2™ fixture.

The A.C. Lighting Inc. booth 485 at USITT 2009 will feature the latest range of innovative lighting technologies exclusively distributed by the company in North America. Products on show for the first time at USITT include the Chroma-Q® Color Block 2™ and Color Span™ LED fixtures. Other technologies include the Jands Vista lighting console range, the Artistic Licence Art-Net range of ethernet solutions, the D.T.S. Delta 7 RGB moving light, and the Madrix LED control software.

Following the enormous success of the Chroma-Q Color Block™ LED fixture with rental companies and end users alike, the manufacturer has combined the product’s core elements of modularity and versatility with new single color RGBA optics, 530 lumens output (almost double the original model) and theatrical grade dimming to create the exceptional feature set of the Color Block 2 fixture.

The Color Span fixture is a configurable, low profile, ultra bright LED unit for indoor / outdoor wall wash, cove, effects and feature lighting applications in the architectural and entertainment sectors. The Color Span gives lighting designers, specifiers and end users the flexibility to specify the fixture to meet their particular application needs, including selecting from a choice of IP rating, body length, body color, LED colors and optics options.

Other Chroma-Q LED products featured include the Color Split™ fixture for creating innovative ‘split color’ effects from a single unit, and the Color Punch™ fixture for a ‘punchy’ light output from an extremely compact unit. In addition, the stand features the Color Web™ LED range of 125mm / 5″ and 250mm / 10″ cell pitch modular video effect panels. Artistic Licence is the designer and manufacturer of Color Web, which is exclusively distributed in North America by A.C. Lighting Inc.

Also on display is a selection of models from the award-winning Jands Vista lighting console range. Models include the Vista T2 Linux-based all-in-one solution, which provides the benefits of a full size console combined with the simplicity of the Vista’s visual interface. In addition, the mid-range Vista I3 provides all the revolutionary features of the Vista T2 in an economical package, and the extremely portable Vista S1 control surface turns a Windows or Mac OSX based laptop into a lighting console. All models share exactly the same visual interface and controls. As a result, making a transition between models is seamless.

As networking requirements for entertainment technology applications continue to increase, many of the leading control companies, such as Jands, are supporting the Art-Net product range. Developed by Artistic Licence, this TCP/IP based communication protocol can co-exist on the same cable with most proprietary protocols. Art-Net is readily available in the public domain on a royalty free basis and is supported by a host of manufacturers. A.C. Lighting Inc. supplies the complete range of Artistic Licence Art-Net ethernet solutions, which are the perfect complement to lighting control products such as the Jands Vista.

In addition, “A.C.” will be showing the latest LED fixture from D.T.S. Lighting, the ultra bright Delta 7 RGB. With 108 individual P4 LEDs, the Delta 7 RGB offers up to 3 times the brightness of earlier D.T.S. LED fixtures. Other models available include the Delta RGB Full Color range featuring 40 full color (not separate RGB) LEDs, which virtually eliminate the frustrating color separation shadows normally synonymous with LED lighting.

As the use of LED video effect products grows, so does the need for inexpensive pixel mapping and content creation. Madrix is a low cost, user-friendly PC based control software which is ideal for entry-level creative LED systems, such as the Chroma-Q Color Web. Madrix is easy to set up and features a simple interface with two playbacks for cross-fading effects. Content is handled by its own flexible content creator, which enables full creative control of LED products in real time.

In addition to aforementioned products exclusively distributed in North America by A.C. Lighting Inc., the company carries a vast stockholding of the latest stage, studio and event lighting products, accessories and consumables. This choice of on-the-shelf products, coupled with the international “A.C. Group’s” volume purchasing power, ensures that customers receive competitive prices and the highest level of service and support.
