The Inspire has the ability to transform a room from traditional white light to a full color mixing effect completely, seamlessly, changing the look, feel and dynamic of the space through the innovative use of color and light, from delicate pastels to bold saturates and beautiful rich whites.,

Other features include DMX-512 connectivity for seamless integration with an existing DMX infrastructure, a camera friendly adjustable 600 - 4,800Hz frequency to avoid camera flicker and an extreme output of 4,00 hot lumens - providing massive amounts of output across the spectrum.

A.C. Lighting, ArKaos and the ROOF

A.C. Lighting is proud to have supplied the ArKaos Stage Media Server with MediaMaster Pro software and Video Mapper feature, for the ROOF at theWit, a AAA Four Diamond Hotel in Chicago.

The new system has been installed to facilitate customized visual experiences for the hotel’s newly-opened, state-of-the-art 3D mapping installation, theWall.


theWall is the first of its kind, being a permanent 3D mapping installation that provides immersive visual and optical illusion entertainment to the corporate hospitality world.

Measuring approximately 20 feet wide by 12 feet tall, theWall integrates the ArKaos Stage Server with sophisticated robotic cameras and intricate stage lighting on a custom designed and built 3D projection surface with motion production capability and a retractable flat screen.

The custom ArKaos Stage Server at the heart of theWall is running MediaMaster Pro with projection through the Video Mapper and LED mapper softwares. The Stage Server was selected for its massive structural strength, stability and reliability to run live video shows in real-time.


The ArKaos Stage Server is used as a visual synthesizer that allows the client to trigger and manipulate customized graphic content on a large scale on ROOF, it’s a plug-and-play solution that is also fully capable of triggering the existing DMX lighting in the venue.

theWit’s artist-in-residence and digital content producer, along with Dan Block, also known as “DBlock”, who excels at 3D visual creation, have been using Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects with various plug-ins to create custom visual effects and a fully-customized graphic show specifically adapted to theWall’s new 3D structure, taking advantage of the ArKaos Stage Server ’s live video output features. The Stage Server has two full HD outputs to separately manage and run the club’s existing LED and new projection screens, and can run up to 8 layers of video simultaneously.

theWall is the brainchild of CEO and founder of theWit, Scott Greenberg who, exploring fields of technology outside the retail and hospitality industry, recently discovered the use of 3D projection and video mapping in live music and gaming. The discovery inspired him to create theWall as the first dedicated and permanent 3D video mapping surface in a rooftop lounge.
