A.C. Lighting North Tradeshow Provides UK Debut for Leading Products

17th March 2004

This year's A.C. Lighting North Tradeshow will see products from some of the leading entertainment technology companies making their UK tradeshow debut in Leeds.

Chroma-Q, which is exclusively distributed by A.C. Lighting, will unveil the first in a new line of high output LED products. The Colour Block is a modular block of 4 DMX-controlled colour mixing LED lights which can be easily configured in stacks or rows to make battens, blinders or any combination. The high powered Colour Block features a unique user interface offering Hue, Saturation and Intensity control of each fixture. Plus a fully variable effects engine which returns full creativity to the lighting designer.

Jands, which is also exclusively distributed in Europe by A.C., will be demonstrating their newly launched Vista lighting console. Featuring a truly ground-breaking new approach to lighting control, the Vista dispenses with cuelist, touch screens, keyboards and tedious number-crunching in favour of timeline based software, a pen and a huge colour pen tablet. The result is unprecedented creative power and control over every show aspect.

Other new products on display will include Martin Professional's Ego 4 DMX effect and Maxxyz Wing console, Pulsar's OutStation 1 remote DMX lighting controller and MR16 ChromaHeart illumination fixtures, Clay Paky's Alpha Spot, Alpha Spot HPE and Alpha Wash HMI 575 moving body projectors, Selecon's Pacific Followspot and 80V power supply, Avolites' eDMX system and ART2000s stand alone dimming module, Beyerdynamic's Opus 800 and Opus 300 radio mics, Zero 88's Diablo lighting controller and Rack 6/Install 6 dimmers range, Le Mark Group's Tak-Away self-adhesive residue remover, Gaf-Fire fire retardant gaffer tape, ProTape vinyl coated tapes range and Identi-tak cables length marker, Sennheiser's Evolution G2 Wireless and Versatile mic ranges, DAS's Dynamic Active Series speakers, Anchor's Liberty series of portable sound systems, Allen & Heath's LedLamp, and Community's MIR, T Class and Tandem Drive speaker ranges.
