New York and Miami-based production and rental company Technical Arts Group (TAG) has added a large number of Elation Professional luminaires to its growing inventory of rental gear, a lighting package that will service events throughout what is gearing up to be a busy summer season.

TAG (taglive.com) was formed in January 2021 in the wake of COVID when KM Productions joined forces with AVS Production Group and Quality Audio Visual to create a new brand and client experience. Providing quality production services and equipment rentals for live events – from headlining tours and large corporate events to smaller events and private parties – TAG services the entire USA, as well as international destinations.

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.”

Elation Professional is pleased to be expanding its KL “Key Light” Series of LED Fresnel luminaires with the full-color KL Fresnel 6 FC™.

Designed for any application requiring high output soft light with precise color reproduction and adjustable color temperature, the KL Fresnel 6 FC excels at highlighting performers or scenery on stage in a uniform wash of soft field light. Offering a wide array of color from rich saturates to subtle pastels and dynamic white light, it is an ideal key and fill light source for situations requiring outstanding color quality and is a perfect match with Elation’s KL Fresnel 8 FC.

ADJ Expands Lime Par Series With Compact & Punchy Encore LP5IP

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.

So, You’re Ready To Go LED…But Is Your System?

As time goes on, the market continues to develop new, more flexible and efficient means to light the stage with LED technology. Originally, LED lighting fixtures were not capable of producing a high-quality light output. We now have access to high quality LED’s that can produce light almost as good as an incandescent fixture while also adding some very beneficial side effects, like color changing capabilities, lower power draw requirements and low heat radiation. They are used in all levels of production, from Broadway to High Schools.

Because LED’s have become almost commonplace in the entertainment industry, we often take for granted the changes that they can require to our facility’s infrastructure. Most venues that still utilize incandescent lighting systems continue to do so because of the cost to change their existing systems to allow the use of the new fixtures. An LED fixture differs from its incandescent predecessor because it is more of an electronic device than a light. With that difference comes special requirements for proper use. LED’s require both data, in the form of a DMX signal, and power be supplied to each device.

With the brand-new impression X5 series, GLP sets a new standard for LED wash moving lights. This new development is the prelude to a whole series of innovative luminaires and will be on show at Prolight + Sound alongside the X5 IP Bar and XDC1 IP Hybrid, an exciting fusion of X5 Wash and untamed JDC1 strobe power, at Stand C30 in Hall 12.1.

The impression X5 is a “next-generation LED wash light” – a new workhorse that brings all the benefits of the iconic X4 series with cutting-edge technology and much anticipated new features. The fixture weighs only 29.3 lbs (13.3 kg) and is equipped with 19 powerful 40-watt RGBL LEDs that provide an incredible light output and an expanded color gamut. GLP’s new iQ.Gamut color algorithm, for example, ensures that the impression X5 produces a clean white point at 6,500 K with high color rendering (CRI 90 / TLCI 90) as standard, plus the option to switch to other fixed and precisely calibrated white points. With the new super-fast zoom mechanism, the impression X5 offers a 16:1 zoom from 3.5° to 60° with homogeneous light distribution across the entire range.

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.
