Behind the Scenes announces that AC Power Distribution (ACPD), a brand of ACT Entertainment, has joined its Pledge-of-Support Program. ACPD will contribute a portion of the profits from its new LunchBoxPD data and power distribution system to Behind the Scenes (BTS), a charity that provides assistance to entertainment technology professionals or their immediate family for major medical and mental health needs.
ACPD has provided the entertainment industry with safe and efficient power distribution products for decades, setting the standards for the devices that make it all possible. The ACPD LunchBoxPD is a simple, compact and efficient solution that brings power and data distribution together in a new but familiar form factor. The product will be on display at LDI 2023 (Booth 365).
LunchBoxPD integrates power and data distribution into one device without compromising either. The LunchBoxPD nodes offer four DMX ports to break out from an ethernet data network, while still allowing data to pass through. In doing so, it delivers CRMX wireless DMX data directly to a traditional lunchbox power solution, providing robust DMX throughput as well as six individually optically isolated outputs. Numerous power and data configurations can be achieved, all inside the durable, compact and proven LunchBox form factor with which lighting techs are familiar.
When discussing Behind the Scenes’ Pledge-of-Support Program, AC Power Distribution Products’ Vice President James Davey stated, “BTS is an amazing organization that provides much needed support at times when members of our industry need it most. We’re very proud to help support this worthy cause.”
Rick Rudolph, BTS Foundation Chair also commented, “Behind the Scenes is immensely pleased to have an industry leader like ACT Entertainment join our Pledge–of–Support Program. Their dedicated support is an integral part in sustaining our mission.”
The Behind the Scenes Foundation provides financial assistance to entertainment technology professionals in need due to illness or injury, provides grants for counseling or rehab, and provides tools and resources to support entertainment industry workers and promote mental health and wellness.
