New Control Products from Elation

Posted on Friday, January 19th, 2018

Elation Professional is pleased to offer three new lighting control products designed to ease communication, optimize functionality, and increase compatibility of intelligent lighting systems.

The 4CAST DMX BRIDGE is a compact four-universe wireless device which seamlessly bridges Wi-Fi, Art-Net, sACN, and E-FLY (Elation’s wireless DMX solution) signals to wirelessly control compatible DMX devices, an ideal solution for small production events, nightclubs, bars, or any event or venue which requires hidden data cables. The 4CAST DMX BRIDGE creates a private standalone 2.4GHz DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum) Wi-Fi network, which coexists in busy RF environments alongside other wireless technologies. No existing network infrastructure is required, or it can connect to an external network. The device sends constant and reliable wireless DMX signals to compatible DMX devices via DMX-512, Art-Net, sACN, or E-FLY. Using the 4CAST iOS app installed on an iOS compatible device provides additional easy control of compatible DMX devices.

The eNode2 POE is a compact two-universe Ethernet-DMX node powered over Ethernet (POE) that supports Art-Net compatible DMX control systems utilizing a single RJ45 auto-switching 10/100Mbps Neutrik etherCON input and two multi-configuration five-pin Neutrik DMX data outputs. Features include DMX bilateral conversion support, a four-button control panel, an OLED system menu display and three LED status indicators. Compact and made of lightweight die-cast aluminum, it includes a mini omega bracket for easy clamp/truss mounting. No external power supply or cord is needed.

The IPC415-DMX Power Control Center is an intelligent DMX power control center featuring four powerCON outputs (15A max each), four five-pin XLR DMX outputs, one five-pin XLR DMX input, and one five-pin XLR DMX thru-put. Power to the powerCON outputs can be scheduled to automatically switch on/off via an internal scheduler when the DMX signal is lost or when a specific cue is triggered from a DMX console. The IPC415 can be mounted in a standard 19″ rack space using the included rack ears, or truss mounted using a clamp (not included) attached to the M10 rigging point in the center of the unit. It includes a multi-voltage universal auto switching power supply (100V – 240V) for use anywhere in the world.

ETC Releases Unison Foundry

Posted on Friday, January 19th, 2018

ETC introduces a new member of the Unison family: Unison Foundry. Foundry power products are a line of DMX-controlled, distributed power control products that includes Mini Panels, Relay Controllers, 0-10V Controllers, and Phase-adaptive Dimmers. Foundry products are the perfect partners for Unison Paradigm, Unison Mosaic, and Echo Control Systems that utilized DMX. These combinations help users create complete lighting and plug-load control packages that provide energy saving features and meet stringent energy codes.

The Foundry Mini Panel is a discrete feed panel available in two versions: four or eight circuits. Each Mini Panel can be wired with a discrete power input for each circuit, or a single input may be shared across multiple circuits. With support for both 120V and 277V circuits simultaneously, as well as normal and emergency circuits, Foundry Mini Panels offer unmatched flexibility. Fully isolated 0-10V dimming is also standard for each output, meaning Foundry Mini Panels offer outstanding versatility in a compact, robust package.

Foundry Relay Controllers, 0-10V Controllers, and Phase-adaptive Dimmers allow the user to place power control exactly where it is needed. They are simple to install using a 1/2″ conduit knockout and are plenum rated for installation almost anywhere. Foundry Relay Controllers are fully rated for 20A making them ideal for both lighting and plug-load applications. The 0-10V Controllers are fully isolated, providing the best compatibility, even when used with non-isolated 0-10V drivers. The Foundry Phase-Adaptive Dimmers provide smooth reverse- or forward-phase dimming at 120V or 277V for lighting loads up to 600W.

With Unison Foundry the user can build a power infrastructure with the flexibility and features users need to meet the demands of state-of-the-art lighting control systems, now and in the future.

PRG Mbox v4.2.2

Posted on Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

The latest version of the PRG Mbox media server offers more power via application programming interfaces (APIs), along with a fully 64-bit code-base, and updated operating systems and hardware. The new UI allows for more-flexible and intuitive setup for outputs and content positioning. Features include single-layer crossfade, pixel-mapping ability, various playback options, and image remapping. The updated improves flexibility in video output quantity, size, and layout with up to 32 independently mastered outputs. Outputs can be independent or part of a system (with blend and overlap), can be duplicated or resized, and can be flipped and rotated.

Three versions of the software are available.Mbox Designer v4 includes every 2D and 3D feature for ultimate power and flexibility. Mbox Studio v4 scales back on the number of playback layers, pixel-mapping limits, and 3D capabilities but still has most key features. Mbox Mini v4 retains the core feature set for 2D content playback and manipulation but limits features and eliminates most 3D elements.

Designer v4 now supports up to 24 layers for playback, while Studio v4 supports up to 12, and Mini v4 supports up to six. All layers can be displayed simultaneously and can be any combination of 2D textures and 3D objects. This version allows transition of content on the same layer, and it can handle 4K playback and output, with an array of play modes and effects. Built-in keystone, warp, and projection mapping allow for complex projection setups on both standard screens and 3D scenic elements.

The other applications in the software family, Mbox Director and Mbox Remote, have also been enhanced to allow them to work seamlessly with the v4 software.
