A.C. Entertainment Technologies Unveils New Innovations at PLASA Focus

21st April 2009

The A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. stand (S-D2) at the PLASA Focus show in Leeds will feature new innovations from leading brands including Chroma-Q® & GLP and product highlights from the ranges exclusively distributed by the company in the UK.

The A.C. Lighting division will be displaying a selection of products from the Chroma-Q LED range. 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 colour 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.

Other Chroma-Q LED products featured include 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 and 250mm cell pitch modular video effect panels. Artistic Licence is the designer and manufacturer of Color Web, which is exclusively distributed worldwide by A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd.

Representing the award-winning Jands Vista lighting console range is the Vista T2. The Vista's intuitive interface lets users work visually, making it fast and simple to control their lights, ultimately allowing them to focus on creating even better looking shows. For real adaptability, when using local production the generic fixture model allows users to change fixture types as their rig changes. This enables them to take their show with them wherever they go. The Vista's innovative timeline editing gives users the complete picture of their lighting events, helping them to make sense of complex changes and put the finishing touches to their show.

Featured from GLP are the Impression and new Impression XL baseless LED moving yoke fixtures. The larger Impression XL fixture has almost 3 times the light output of the original Impression (240 LEDs compared to 90), yet provides the same consistent and high quality of light. This results in especially rich colours and a beautiful beam. Furthermore, the Impression XL is only 23kg and retains the same innovative design as the original model, including silent operation and low power consumption.

On show from D.T.S. is the Delta R IP65 LED moving light. The Delta R fixture's 40 Full Colour (not separate RGB) LEDs virtually eliminate the frustrating colour separation shadows normally synonymous with LED lighting. The Delta LED range includes a choice of moving head and fixed installation models.

Products from the Spotlight range include the Combi 1280 Fresnel PC fixture and the miniLED RGB & miniLED White range. The new Combi version combines the advantages of a dimmable halogen lamp with a much higher efficiency than a normal tungsten lamp. The low voltage 1200 W 80 V lamp is 50% more efficient, resulting in a brighter light output of 3250 K and better colour rendition. For added convenience, the fixture can be fitted with the Pebble Convex, Clear Plano Convex & Fresnel lens types. Also featured is the miniLED RGB & miniWhite range. The models combine a bright and uniform beam with very low power consumption & heat output, and a long life.

The A.C. Audio division, now in its fifth year, has established itself as a leading supplier of many international Pro Audio brands. Product ranges stocked include KV2 Audio, Allen & Heath, Yamaha, Shure and Audio Technica, to name a few. A.C. Audio sales staff will be readily available to discuss the wide range of consoles, amplifiers, microphones, loudspeakers, wireless systems, headphones & IEM and associated equipment available through the reseller.

The A.C. Rigging division will be displaying a selection of its main line products, including CM Lodestar, Out Board Electronics and the Tractel Black range of hand chain blocks, lever hoists and Corso beam clamps. Tractel lifting products are tried and tested, having been used in general industry for years. These workhorse products are now available in black, making them the ideal choice for entertainment applications. Also on show will be a selection of PPE and fall arrest equipment, with a focus on fall rescue and evacuation systems. A.C. Rigging will be demonstrating a selection of innovative products specifically for this important area of height safety, which is often overlooked. In addition, the sales division will be on hand to discuss customers' rigging requirements and reveal some exclusive new products at the show.

The A.C. Video division was created to provide a complete turnkey solution for lighting companies looking to make their first move into video. The service includes system design, training, installation and support. A.C. Video will be demonstrating the latest products and solutions from its complete range of system components.
