Chroma-Q® Jands ArKaos Pro Prolyte Group LumenRadio
Welcome to Leading Lights Issue 20

We are wrapping up an award winning summer and getting ready for a crazy, fun fall season. The summer kicked off with the new and truly innovative Chroma-Q® Space Force™ winning the prestigious Lighting Award category at the 2016 Cine Gear Expo, in Hollywood. The Space Force is a cutting-edge variable white LED Space Light that is a modern replacement for conventional space lights or soft light sources used in film and television studios.

This summer featured fantastic, front-cover articles on two popular industry magazines for leading products in our portfolio. Lighting & Sound America featured Dierks Bentley on their July cover, with feedback from Lighting Designer Chris Reade on the powerful and versatile Jands Vista platform. The July/August issue of Worship Facilities featured a stunning cover photo and the accompanying article showcasing Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Liberty, MO and their energy saving Chroma-Q Inspire™ LED house light installation by Stark Raving Solutions.

The crazy, fun fall season will kick-off with the introduction of the new Chroma-Q Color Force II™, the LDI debut of Prolyte's must-see Verto truss system, LumenRadio's wireless USB DMX transmitter and big news from ArKaos.

Arrow INTRODUCING CHROMA-Q® COLOR FORCE II™ - GAME CHANGED AGAIN
Chroma-Q Color Force II™ - Game Changed Again. At PLASA 2016 - Stand F20
After revolutionizing the lighting market six years ago with the popular Color Force™ range of creative LED solutions, LDI will see the North American launch of the next generation Color Force II™ range.
Using the very latest fully homogenized optics found in the popular Chroma-Q Color One 100™ and Inspire™ product ranges, the Color Force II fixtures' output is a single, clean and pure beam of light, delivering a superior color blend with no unsightly color mixing shadows. The homogenized optics and improved Chroma-Q technology provide even higher quality saturates and pastels, and a purer white with no skittles – all from a single source.

In addition, the Color Force II range delivers at least 50% more output. The Color Force II range is designed to match the colored output of the Color One 100™ LED. Other features shared include exceptional color consistency fixture-to-fixture and batch-to-batch, theatrical grade dimming, and ultra-quiet operation.

Arrow ARKAOS MEDIAMASTER PRO 4.2.4
ArKaos Pro Media Master Pro software
We are pleased to announce a significant update of ArKaos MediaMaster, version 4.2.4 for Mac and Windows with Integrated Cue Player.

The Cue Player is an important addition for users who require reliable, accurate playback of visual sequences - for example, on shows or installations for repeated automated playback.
The Cue Player is built on the Theater Mode interface and automates playback of visual presets. It allows users to play a predefined sequence of visuals during a show or an event. The many synchronization options give precise control over the timing to trigger different visuals sequentially or in parallel. The playback of cue lists can be triggered by DMX, MIDI, timecode or with a keyboard.

With just a few clicks, the Cue Player can help you create a sequence of videos with cross-fading. The possibilities are endless and help you prepare a creative visual show with the full mixing capabilities offered by MediaMaster.
Highlights include:
  • Support for latest Mac OS X Yosemite and El Capitan, and Windows 10
  • Display of timecode
  • Audio input and output level meters on the main interface
  • Multithreaded playback of some codecs for better performance
  • Improved performance, memory consumption, UI reactivity and overall stability
  • Support for high resolution screens on Windows 10 with non-standard DPI
  • Enhanced support for capture cards including the Intensity Pro 4K from Blackmagic Design
  • Enhanced support of non-English OS

Arrow NEW CHROMA-Q® SPACE FORCE™ - CINE GEAR WINNER
Chrom-Q® Space Force™. The Next Frontier - Made in North America. www.chroma-q.com - Winner Cine Gear Expo Technical Awards 2016
The Chroma-Q® Space Force™ won the prestigious Lighting Award category at the 2016 Cine Gear Expo. Award-winners were selected by a panel of industry experts with an eye toward the latest in technology. Winners were chosen after the panel reviewed and evaluated nearly one hundred of the newest technologies at this year's Cine Gear Expo.
Drawing upon Chroma-Q's decade of experience designing and building premium performance LED solutions to exacting standards in North America, the Space Force utilizes advanced technologies in every area of its design, while still retaining the best characteristics of conventional white lighting sources. The Space Force provides a highly efficient, lightweight, low heat, low maintenance, variable white fixture lighting solution which is CCT tunable between 2,800K – 6,500K.

The unit's LED source requires a fraction of the power and maintenance compared with conventional fixtures, while delivering all of the performance users require - providing a high CRI and TLCI output of up to 26,700 lumens, which is comparable to a traditional 6kW fixture. The fixture uses convection cooling to keep its weight low (8kg / 17.6lb) and provide quiet operation with no fans. Theatrical grade dimming provides an extremely smooth dimming curve, ensuring there is no stepping on the output. In addition, the Space Force features adjustable PWM frequencies to provide flicker-free operation on even the most demanding shoots. Control of color temperature and intensity is available via DMX wired, the optional LumenRadio CRMX wireless, or locally via the onboard encoders.
Arrow CHROMA-Q® INSPIRE™ - PLEASANT VALLEY INSTALLATION
Worship Facilities magazine has featured an article on Pleasant Valley Baptist Church, Missouri's installation of 120 Chroma-Q Inspire color-mixing LED house lights, which have helped to dramatically reduce the venue's running costs as well as provide an immersive worship environment.
