Eos Titanium (or “Ti”) is ETC’s flagship lighting control desk, with powerful hardware, easy-to-navigate software, and the right tools to realize art within the tight timetable of professional productions. Ti speaks the language of light, with no complicated command syntax to get in the way of your design.
Ti features large-format, articulating multitouch displays with substantial programming surface. It also offers a dedicated multitouch encoder display, 20 user-definable buttons, a backlit keyboard, motorized faders, multiple USB and video ports everything to make the experience of designing and programming a breeze.
The desk’s common-sense syntax is consistent and predictable, so anyone novices and professionals alike can quickly get down to business. With Ti, you can work from either an abstract concept of a design to a straightforward command sequence, thinking less about the mechanics of the system and more about the look of your show. The command line is fully integrated with direct selects and magic sheets, allowing you to work seamlessly from the keypad and the touchscreen controls.
Ti’s revolutionary referenced marking function takes the agony out of presetting lights. What you need most quickly is immediately available, and all supporting information (discrete timing, absolute data, source of current data) is found fast and easily. Necessary features aren’t buried under layers what you need is right within reach.
When you combine Ti’s solid-state hard drive with networked backups, you get the most reliable lighting system possible. There is no need to install expensive switches, because Ti uses 10/100 MB networks. Designers no longer have to sacrifice their needs for those of programmers, because each device on a Ti system can have a discrete workspace. Partitioned control provides a safe and effective method for multiple programmers to build content into a show file. Designers, programmers and electricians must work across venue types with equal ease, and your desk must, too.
Ti also speaks your language. It supports localization, so you can work in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian or Chinese (Simplified and Traditional).

MAC Viper AirFX
is a new concept that combines hard-edge, mid-air effects and a beautiful wash field in one luminaire. It features the same compact form, speed, light quality, and beautiful colors as the other members of the MAC Viper family.
Capable of projecting a dense, hard-edge beam with stunning mid-air aerial effects, the MAC Viper AirFX’s unique optical system allows it to adjust from a tight beam to a radiant wash instantly for greater design flexibility.
The MAC Viper AirFX uses the same bright and efficient 1,000W HID source as the other Viper family luminaires, and at nearly 35,000 lumens of output, is brighter than larger and more power-demanding 1,500W profile fixtures.
The MAC Viper AirFX houses a selection of all-new aerial effects on two gobo wheels a rotating gobo wheel with five replaceable designs and a fixed gobo wheel with seven replaceable designs.
Hard-edge effects remain stunning and hold focus through the fixture’s entire 11- to 59-degree zoom range and at varying throws. Beam gobos can adjust along the entire zoom range and unlike other fixtures, the company says the light output is constant throughout the entire zoom range with no visible beam jump from tight to wide.
A combination of optical design and lamp choice has been the foundation for developing a fixture rich on colours, the company says, without compromising light quality. The Viper AirFX’s unique and highly efficient optical system does not boost the colour temperature of the lamp and quality of white light is excellent.
The CMY colour mixing system offers a superior palette including true reds, rich ambers, primary green, and deep blues with added colour choice from a seven-slot colour wheel. A linear CTO provides daylight to tungsten CCT control and expansion of the CMY palette.
The MAC Viper AirFX uses a special 160mm precision PC lens for an eye-catching fat-beam look with less spill than micro-Fresnels.
Beams can be further manipulated using the combined dimmer/shutter system with intensity effects for instant blackout or smooth fades all the way to blackout. Additional effects are possible from a fast and tight iris with adjustable dynamic effects as well as a frost that can snap or fade-in for beautiful wash effects. Diverse strobe effects are also possible.

By connection the Vision to your favorite console you can directly navigate into your cue-lists / executor lists, and add all kinds of new functions to your show. We know that one of the biggest problems with using media-servers is to find matching content for your total stage look. Therefore we've invented the "M3 system", which enables you to quickly find a matching clip according to your specific demands. So how does it work?
• The system analyses clips and metadata for specific characteristics.
• You can query on color and metadata (example: LEE 126 and longer than 2 minutes).
• You are presented with a selection of clips matching your criteria.
Doing a live show was never that easy!The Vision can be used to overcome a lot of the shortcomings of current light-desks when media-servers are involved. Use it as an add-on to the media-server(s) en light-desks to make programming a video-show faster and easier! the back-panel of the Vision has lot of connection options build in. The Vision can be used in big setups where different devices need to be synced and/or live triggered. The Vision can also be the 'middleman' between devices for translation of signals.Shows are getting bigger and more complex, with more and more people involved in controlling the different disciplines used.
Until now, the only possibility to get a real sync was using timecode. But, timecode doesn't give the possibility to make on-the-spot changes or improvisations.
With the Vision console you are really in control because you can trigger all your devices from one location, while all the operators and/or controllers still have full control over their equipment!

Platinum Spot 5R,
a revolutionary moving head that utilizes groundbreaking new MSD Platinum 5R Lamp Technology from Philips.
Billed as the “next generation in entertainment lighting,” Platinum lamps combine Philips MSD technology with a very compact/short arc, compact design, innovative reflector system and high efficiency. This exciting new 160W/ 7,950 lumen discharge lamp source makes it possible to create fixtures that are brighter and more powerful with superior light quality, yet are also faster, smaller, lighter weight, draw much less energy, and have longer-lasting lamps.
Case in point -- Elation’s Platinum Spot 5R blasts an output comparable to a 575-watt fixture, yet it’s half the size, uses less than half the energy, and amazingly weighs half as much as a typical 250-watt fixture! To look at the Platinum Spot 5R in comparison to a 250-watt fixture, it not only weighs 50% less, but produces twice the output, while using 25% less energy and measuring 2/3 the size of a 250-watter. The Platinum Spot 5R also moves faster than traditional moving heads on pan and tilt, as well as on color/gobo changes.
The Platinum lamp’s integrated reflector system provides perfect lamp alignment and a new optical system each time the lamp is replaced. Additionally, its 2,000-hour rated lamp life is twice as long as that of a conventional 575-watt fixture, and when the time does come to replace the lamp, users will find that it’s much more affordable compared to other MSD replacement lamps.
ETC has released new software for the Eos® family
(Eos, Ion® and Element) of control: v1.8.ncreased output on Ion
Ion is now available in five- and six-universe increments (Ion 2500 and Ion 3000). The Ion RPU is also available with six universes (Ion 3K RPU). Existing Ions and RPUS can be upgraded to these increased outputs.
When an Eos or Ion device connects to the network, it is possible to "mirror" another device (called the host) on the system. When a device is in mirror mode, the displays that are present on the host are shown in exactly the same format, page and flexichannel state on the mirroring device. Concurrent with this, it will now be possible to connect a PC using the offline software without a client dongle. When this is done, that PC can only operate in mirror mode.
Mirror mode makes it possible to use a PC with offline software or an RVI with Element, operating in mirror mode only.
Version1.8 also supports a fan function to distribute parameter and timing data. On Eos and Ion, fan is both a command-line function and an encoder function. A number of fan options are provided. Fan in Element is much simpler: it is a command-line function only, always operating in ‘From Start’ channel mode.
A number of changes have been made to allow easier live editing of time code events.
Several Sensor®-dimmer feedback issues in v1.7 have been resolved in v1.8. We have also implemented dimmer feedback from our German FDX dimming systems.
End-users are encouraged to upgrade to v1.8 at their earliest opportunity. Please remember that any RVIs (Remote Video Interfaces) and RPUs (Remote Processor Units) in use will also need to run the same version of software that the main consoles use..

MAC 700 Wash The MAC 700 Wash is the latest high performance luminaire in Martin’s line of award-winning MAC moving heads. It carries on the MAC tradition for excellence by offering much of the same technology, modularity and design as the MAC 700 Profile.
The 700 Wash is a powerful 700-watt Fresnel luminaire with a remarkable light output. It features a full CMY color mixing system and variable CTC plus 8 position color wheel. Other useful features include a wide range variable zoom, continuous and indexable beam shaper, and extremely smooth and fast dimmer shutter system. It also boasts the same service friendly modular design and silent cooling as the MAC 700 Profile. The MAC 700 Wash houses a superior and highly efficient optical system powered by a 700 watt short-arc discharge lamp. The durable short-arc HTI 700 D4/75 lamp is extremely powerful and more efficient than competitor lamps. This high optical performance produces a uniform distribution of light and color, a very cool color temperature that ensures a bright yet beautifully even colored light that lacks the brownish edge of competitive fixtures. A variable zoom is capable of a very wide range of beam angles from a punchy 12.5° beam to a wide 66° flood, and unlike step zoom systems that offer only two or three different beam angles, the MAC 700 Wash’s fully motorized zoom can achieve any beam angle within its range. Through a new and innovative motor control system, the 0-100% dimming performance of the MAC 700 Wash is not only fast but also seamless for velvety smooth fades.A full CMY color mixing system not only offers the broadest spectrum of color available it also works seamlessly with that of the MAC 700 Profile for precise color matching. In addition, an 8 position color wheel plus UV transmitter filter covers those hard to achieve shades. All colors on the wheel are replaceable, enabling designers to customize the fixture to their own requirements. A variable CTC system provides flexibility in color temperature, adding another dimension to the CMY system by giving warmer shades, useful when working alongside tungsten fixtures for example. A rotating and indexable beam shaper allows for alignment of the beam for easier coverage of scenery and set pieces. The adjusted beam provides for more precise illumination.The MAC 700 Wash is compact for such a powerful, feature rich fixture. It is housed in the same road-tested modular design as the MAC 700 Profile, a design that is both highly durable and highly serviceable. Multi connectors and spring loaded release mechanisms mean that no tools are necessary to remove and insert modules. And a multi position tilt lock keeps the head where you want it. Additionally, a silent low-speed cooling system means the fixture is suitable for noise sensitive applications like TV and theatre.
The MAC 700 Wash is only available with electronic ballast. This gives the added advantages of flicker free operation, lower weight, extended lamp life and a power saving mode. A hot lamp restrike means there is no need to wait for the lamp to cool before re-striking. The fixture is also fitted with an auto sensing switch mode power supply for world wide operation without the need for fixture re-setting.”
Pan movement is 540° by 246° of tilt and speed is exceptional for a mid-sized fixture. Movement is 16 bit, and an intelligent position correction system automatically returns the fixture to its original position if knocked out of place.
The MAC 700 Wash is naturally industry standard DMX-512 controllable and is equipped with both 3-pin and 5-pin XLR connectors. It is also RDM (Remote Device Management) ready for easier configuration, monitoring and management of DMX based systems.

PixelDrive for Mac a Macintosh-based version of their new control concept for driving DMX fixtures. This has been shown for the first timeat LDI 2003, alongside the existing PC-based version. IRAD. Manufacturers of RADlite, the digital media server engine on which PixelDrive is based, are also planning to release a Macintosh version early in the new year.Pixeldrive reduces a process that would normally consume hundreds of hours of complex, high-concentration programming time - to minutes for example to programme a water ripple effect across a bank of Pixellines. The method imports video images the same images that arebeing projected by the RADlite system - into the Pixelline lighting fixtures, which then act like another projection surface. The patternscreated by these digital images can be manipulated via the lighting desk in exactly the same way as the RADlite images. Complex lighting sequences can now be controlled with virtual imagery which is then sent to any multiples of Pixelrange products, using art net Ethernet to distribute across as many DMX universes as required, vastly reducing the DMX allocation on lighting desks. Exceptionally large and complex colour mixing sequences are now possible with minimal pre-programming effort for both live entertainment and architectural projects.
Virtuoso® DX2 The new DX2 release includes a sophisticated media window providing graphic control over video clips for digital lighting media servers.The upgrade further includes inhibitive submasters, track and fill, and a high-resolution encoder mode for slow and accurate control of parameters.

An additional software release due out later in 2004 will include expanded dynamic states for the creation of custom 'effects engines'. The Virtuoso DX2 supports 676 DMX universes with the addition of external Ethernet Virtuoso Nodes, each providing 6 DMX universes per Node. The DX2 runs on a dual Mac G5 processorwith OS X operating system.
Since its release in 2000, the Virtuoso control system has been widely used, including the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the annual GRAMMY® Awards, the current Fleetwood Mac world tour and the current Broadway smash hits Mamma Mia! and Gypsy. It is available exclusively through VLPS Lighting Services

ColorCommand is a color-changing PAR/Washlight that is unique not only to High End Systems' line of luminaires but also to the industry. ColorCommand uses a patented color mixing system that incorporates automated (remote) changing of color and beam angle control in a fixture that is cost comparable to a PAR can and scroller, but at just a fraction of the cost of moving lights.The ColorCommand dichroic color mixing system uses a patented design that incorporates two lenses and three color wheels. The first lens splits the light into 25 separate beams which pass through CMY (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) color-mixing glass. The second lens rejoins and projects the light into a fully saturated, evenly colored beam.Because of the beam-splitting technology, the CMY color wheels are able to perform almost instantaneous color-changes (1/3 of a second to go from clear light to virtually any color imaginable), from subtle pastels to deep saturates and everything in between. It can quickly -- and quietly -- bump between any of these colors or make slow, controlled fades -- all through a fat beam with a uniform field.

Axis DMX Controller .Today's installations of DMX512 controllers have become more and more computer based. Many DMX512 software solutions are both expensive and complicated to learn. With that in mind, Axis Entertainment has released a software package that is both cost effective and easy to use, Axis DMX Controller. The software controls up to 512 dmx channels out, and reads in or records up to 512 channels. With a feature never before seen DMX-Pilot (the generation of organized random scenes in real time), this product dares to think out of the box. It is a perfect solution for Discos and Night Clubs or even Architectural lighting. Many other features comparable to much more expensive software and hardware packages are included.
The software is available with a ISA, USB, or a PCI hardware interface.

Avolites Diamond 4 The Diamond 4 builds on the success of Avolites' Diamond III console, incorporating many of the DIII's popular, ground-breaking features. Feedback gathered via close contact between Avolites and various lighting designers, has allowed Avolites to design a console that is equally at home in live `hands-on' situations and in more controlled `pre-programmed' environments.This Diamond 4 addresses the whole spectrum of production situations. For those with more time - and possibly with a designer away from the console - the D4's newly designed programming panel allows entry and selection of fixtures and palettes by number, whilst the electronic palette gives entry by legend. These entry systems can be mixed in any way, and are always simultaneously available. New features include the Command Syntax which allows replaying of the last entered button presses, and the storing of these for later use. Also new is the storing of Times within a Palette, expanding the ability to use Palettes during live performance, and ensuring a highly flexible toolkit for use during programming. The built-in Looks and Palettes, and the D4's ease of use, enable operation of a show when there's been no pre programming whatsoever. The new processing engine - running at over 1 GHz - ensures that response times for selecting and running anything are fast and seamless.
