Welcome to the Latest Issue 17 of
Leading Lights from A.C. Lighting Inc.

Get yours for free! Yes indeed, FREE as in no charge, nil, zippo. Our exclusive partners ArKaos Pro and Jands previewed feature-packed, free software updates to their popular media server and lighting control software during the NAB show in Las Vegas. ArKaos MediaMaster Express and MediaMaster Pro v4.2 is a free upgrade for users on 3.x or 4.x and features a built-in Cue Player and support for 4K playback.

Equally, Jands released the highly anticipated Vista v2.3. Vista v2.3 features two innovative features in Cue View and the incredibly powerful Stealth mode. In addition, Jands has released the new Jands Stage CL v1.3 software which doubles the console's control capability from 12 fixture groups to 24, while adding control over strobe and zoom.

With so many impressive features, it's hard to believe the ArKaos and Jands software upgrades are free. No charge, nil, zippo.

Speaking of free... take a look at LumenRadio's SuperNova™ 3 software. SuperNova offers a complete system management tool for monitoring and configuring your lighting network. With support for both CRMX enabled transmitters and Art-Net nodes, SuperNova is super slick.

Chroma-Q® will introduce the new High-Performance lens for the Color One 100™ LED Par at InfoComm in Orlando. The new High-Performance lens provides a 35% increase in intensity while maintaining the smooth, homogenized output. And yes, the High Performance lens will be available as a free upgrade after InfoComm.

Last but not least, give us a call to schedule a free demo of Prolyte's RT-H30V Line Array tower and see just how fast and easy it is to build a PA or Video tower using standard truss components.

corner LumenRadio SuperNova™ 3 - Management Software corner
Lumen Radio Wireless done right!

Download your free copy of LumenRadio's SuperNova 3 software and be prepared to be amazed. SuperNova™ offers a complete system management tool for monitoring and configuring your lighting network. With support for both CRMX enabled transmitters and Art-Net nodes, SuperNova provides a clear and detailed view of the status of your entire network - both wired and wireless devices. RDM enabled fixtures can be displayed, monitored and configured from the software, with configuration of common tasks just a click away.

SuperNova 3

How do I manage my system?

A computer running SuperNova can be connected into the show network and run as a monitor for the whole system. Each sensor and signal can be monitored - if a sensor goes outside of a range, it can trigger an alert. Alerts can be configured as e-mails, push notifications or system logs - depending on preferences. By setting a relevant monitoring system, it is possible to reduce maintenance routines and proactively resolve problems in the rig before they become issues with the production.

What about non-wireless fixtures?

By default, SuperNova can communicate with all CRMX products with Ethernet connectivity. This enables monitoring of the wireless link and any RDM enabled devices connected to RDM compatible CRMX receivers. However, LumenRadio recognize that not all fixtures are connected wirelessly in typical systems and SuperNova also allows communication with Art-Net compliant devices from other manufacturers.

How does the licensing work?

SuperNova is free to use for CRMX products; just download SuperNova from the LumenRadio webpage and you are good to go. By purchasing a license for Art-Net functionality, you can manage your Art-Net nodes and monitor RDM devices connected to your entire show network from the same intuitive user interface. Licenses are sold in packs of 4 ports. This means if you have an 8 port node and want to use SuperNova functionality on all 8 ports, you will need to purchase 2 packs (8 ports). Licenses are purchased from your LumenRadio distributor and arrive in the form of a USB dongle which must be present in the computer to unlock the Art-Net functions.

To arrange a demonstration of the LumenRadio range or to discuss your particular requirements, the company can be contacted by phone at +1 (855) 324 9354
or +1 (416) 255 9494, or by email at northamerica@aclighting.com
