Review: High End Systems HedgeHog4 console

Posted on Monday, July 28th, 2014

We found the console to be ideal for building up a large number of scenes or cue lists, and combining them to get a variety of looks that can be used dynamically throughout a concert or service. It feels very logical.

Review: Martin MAC Quantum Wash

Posted on Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Written by: Nook Schoenfeld

Martin MAC Quantum WashHarman’s lighting division, Martin Professional, has long been the innovator of new light technology, especially along the LED line. Following in the footsteps of their MAC Aura series, they have introduced The MAC Quantum Wash. Rather than concentrate solely on the LED eye candy trend, Martin committed themselves to a fresh new concept — using an LED source to create a stunningly bright, pure white light beam.

Review: Chauvet Professional Nexus 4×4

Posted on Monday, April 7th, 2014

Written by: Brandon Creel

The Nexus product line from Chauvet Professional contains the latest in LED technology.  There are 3 versions within the line, 4×1 linear strip, 2×2 block, and the award winning larger block version, the Nexus 4×4.  Is it a blinder, wash light, low resolution video wall, or eye candy?  The answer is YES!  Yes, it is a LED audience blinder.  Yes, it is a super bright soft edge wash light.  Yes, it is a low resolution video wall.  Yes, it is flashy eye candy.  And yes it can be used in many other creative applications.

Review: Robert Juliat ZEP 340LF

Posted on Thursday, January 30th, 2014

By SoundLightUp magazine

If the Tibo range was intended as a break from tradition to offer new customers diversity and a more affordable price, ZEP, instead, fits right into the continuity and know-how of Robert Juliat, following the risky gamble of proposing LED sources in a rather conservative environment.

Review: Clay Paky Sharpy Wash 330

Posted on Friday, December 20th, 2013

By Mike Wood

At first glance, the name seems like a bit of an oxymoron. How can a wash light be sharp? However, I don’t think we are supposed to take the name too literally. Instead, think of it as a product family name. What we have here is a very small, lightweight, automated wash unit that uses a lamp similar to that in the Sharpy but more powerful.

Review: High End Systems Hog 4 Consoles

Posted on Monday, December 16th, 2013

By Justin Lang

Choosing a lighting console is a personal thing. Most programmers have a particular console that they love and worship. The Hog certainly has a dedicated following — so much so that the Hog 2 series of consoles actually had membership cards! I unfortunately was never a card-carrying member, but still appreciate the power and control behind the console.

The flagship of High End Systems’ latest series of Hog desks is the Hog 4. This beast of a desk weighs in at 75 pounds. A bit less, perhaps, than a full-grown sow (or a classic Harley). But it’s not something that you can easily stick into the back of your car. Consider this a team lift. Fortunately, the Hog 4’s road case features some nice wheels and handles easily.

Review: Robe Robin Pointe

Posted on Thursday, December 5th, 2013

By Justin Lang

Energy efficiency and fast action— that’s what’s on everyone’s wish list as of late.  We want the most out of a fixture with as little power consumption that moves like a bat outta hell. Having a fair price doesn’t hurt, either! Robe Lighting has answered these demands with the introduction of the Pointe. Let me start off by saying that regardless of how you hear it pronounced in Europe, the correct pronunciation is “point,” not “poin-tay.” I have it straight from the mouth of the people from the factory on that one! But that’s really besides the… well, you know.
