Follow-Me Track-iT is the next generation of Ultra Wideband auto-tracking. It is fixture independent and flexible. As an add-on to Follow-Me 3D SIX. Follow-Me Track-iT allows operators to switch seamlessly between manual and auto-tracking. With Follow-Me Track-iT both manual and auto tracking can be used autonomously, simultaneously, and as redundancy within the one system.

INDEPENDENT – Follow-Me Track-iT works seamlessly with any manufacturer’s moving lights, used as a follow-spot. There is no limit to the number of fixtures you can use in the Follow-Me Track-iT system. Stable beams are generated on the performer through smart motion filtering algorithms and prediction. You can also integrate and merge any lighting console and/or video, audio & automation system, using Track-iT’s performer positioning information allowing you to get creative.

When Luke Combs finally hit the road again for his What You See is What You Get tour in 2021, he was happy to be back in the spotlight after the collapse of his 2020 tour due to the pandemic. But this time, the spotlight will be a Follow-Me 3D Six system, which is being supplied by Special Event Services (SES) of Mocksville, NC, and Nashville, TN.

Jeff Cranfill, Vice President of SES, chose the Follow-Me system, and he said that the first thing that caught his attention about it was that it could be used with any DMX moving light. “That’s going to be a huge advantage,” he said.

BenQ Debuts Color-Accurate, High-Brightness, Large-Venue Laser Projectors

BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today added two new laser projectors to its renowned BlueCore laser projector family: the LU9750 and LU9800. Specifically engineered to deliver high brightness, precise image accuracy, and long-lasting reliability with zero maintenance, the new 8500-ANSI-lumen LU9750 and 10,000-ANSI-lumen LU9800 laser projectors are perfectly suited for large venues, simulations, and museum applications.

“Our latest laser projectors were developed for markets and applications that demand brightness and the highest attention to color accuracy but can’t afford the steep price tag of a digital cinema projector in which these desired features are traditionally found,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “In the past, these markets either had to make large investments for a color-accurate cinema projector or compromise on the precision of color and brightness, thereby negatively impacting the outcome of the installation. We’re the first company to offer a 10K-lumen, color-accurate laser projector with 95% Rec. 709 color coverage for under $15,000.”

ADJ Expands Lime Par Series With Compact & Punchy Encore LP5IP

In home_page, Image, Lighting, Lighting Product News, Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Launched earlier this year, ADJ’s Encore Lime Par Series of fixtures all feature the same potent quad color (RGB + Lime) LEDs. This ensures perfectly uniform color mixing when different fixture types are used together within a lighting design. Each model also has the same style of robust IP65-rated casing but features a different number of the LEDs. Following the original introduction of the Encore LP7IP, Encore LP12IP and Encore LP18IP models – with 7, 12 and 18 LEDs, respectively – the range has now been expanded to include the new Encore LP5IP model – which features five LEDs arranged into the smallest fixture in the series.

Each LED is rated at 20-Watts and combined in multiples they generate a potent output with an even, soft-edged beam. Through precise 16-bit dimming control over the four primary LED colors – red, green, blue and lime – the fixtures are able to generate a large gamut of colors and hues. The inclusion of the lime LED chip helps certain colors to appear more vivid and also boosts the CRI to an impress 86.2.

ADJ Expands Popular Hydro Series Of IP65-rated Moving Head Fixtures With One Profile And Two Spots

In home_page, Image, Lighting, Lighting Product News, Product News, Web Articlesby Media

All of the Hydro Series fixtures feature robust all metal construction and are IP65-rated to allow safe temporary outdoor use in all weather conditions. The sealed casing design also means that the light source, electronics and internal mechanisms are protected from dust, dirt and airborne particles, including humidity and haze residue. The fixtures therefore require reduced maintenance schedules and are likely to offer extended operational lifespans, when compared with conventional fixtures. For this reason, many production companies are choosing to invest in all IP65-rated equipment, giving the flexibility to use them for both indoor and outdoor events. Similarly, many installers are choosing Hydro Series fixtures even for indoor permanent installations.

Sitting proudly at the top of the expanded Hydro Series, the Hydro Profile combines an immense 660-Watt LED engine, which produces 25,000 Lumens, with an expansive feature set to offer a professional lighting powerhouse. Its beam can be precisely manipulated using a four-blade rotatable framing system, alongside motorized zoom (6 ~ 45 degrees), focus and iris, together with two frost filters. A CMY color mixing system, combined with a variable CTO flag and six slot replaceable color wheel, allow for exceptional versatility and creative freedom when it comes to color selection. Meanwhile, two GOBO wheels, two rotating prisms (six-facet circular and five-facet linear), and an animation wheel allow for the creation of an almost unlimited variety of aerial effects and surface pattern projections.
