MDG Releases a Monster at Prolight+Sound 2016
Posted on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016
The biggest of the Me Series, the company says, the Me8 is an 8-nozzled monster that pumps out a massive 800m3 of fog per minute.
Designed primarily for large-scale applications, both indoor and out, and destined for huge venues and stadia, the Me8 also works for fire fighter and military training, ventilation testing, and special effects for movies.
The Me8 is extremely economical on fluid, using only 8L of MDG fluid an hour at maximum output.
The arrival of the Me8 marks the completion of the Me Series of fog generators which has been designed as the latest stage in MDG’s evolution of fog. The Me Series represents a new family of generators with a higher degree of controllability and a powerful output from a compact chassis, the company says.
Like all members of the Me Series, the Me8 benefits from a 1% – 100% variable fog output that can be controlled directly from a lighting console or via local control, a 100% duty cycle that guarantees high-quality, consistent fog at all levels of output, and MDG’s Automatic Purging System (APS). Numerous control options are on-board as standard and include three standard USITT DMX512 channels, XLR-5 connectors, a 4-button LCD user interface, and RDM compliancy.
MDG’s Me Series can be customised to operate with an auto-refill function, from a central pump system or an external fluid reservoir, for long-term use in permanent installations. Weather-resistant enclosures available for outdoor applications on request.
To come face to face with this monster, check out the MDG stand (Hall 3 Stand E19) at Prolight Sound, Frankfurt from April 5-8, 2016.
