ETC officially released the Eos v3.0 software, bringing powerful three-dimensional programming and augmented-reality control to the Eos platform. This update marks the official integration of the much-anticipated Augment3d toolkit into Eos. With Augment3d, users can program moving fixtures with unprecedented speed and ease, visualize their cues in an imported model of their space, and even position lights with a flick of an augmented-reality smartphone “focus wand.” Over 5,000 beta users tested the software in recent months, and their feedback has helped to build one of the most exciting new Eos feature sets yet.

The new software runs natively on all the latest Eos Family hardware and can be used with the ETCnomad software on Mac and PC. Educators, students, and those wishing to learn the software can download the latest ETCnomad software for free and make use of the Augment3d programming space to create virtual design projects in offline mode. ETC has also created a virtual light lab show file to help students use Augment3d to learn about lighting.

Alabama Church Upgrades Auditorium With New ADJ Lighting and Video System

In home_page, Install News, Lighting, Lighting Install News, Web Articlesby Media

Founded by Bishop Patrick M. Schatzline and Lady Deborah Schatzline, with a congregation of just 50 people, today Daystar Family Church in Tuscaloosa, AL, has a congregation of over 1300. Now pastored by Patrick and Deborah’s son Scott and his wife Kristi, it is multi-cultural, multi-generational, non-denominational church with praise and worship that is energetic and passionate. However, this had begun to be hindered by a lighting system that was outdated and costly. For this reason, Nick Campfield of Narrow Road Pro was brought in to advise on a possible solution.

Nick was originally brought in a year ago because of a faulty dimmer. When he spoke to the pastors of the church he found out they were spending a significant amount of money on electricity, which is hardly surprising as they had 80 conventional pars and ellipsoidal fixtures in their roof at 750 watts a piece. Because of the problem with the dimmer, all of these were turned on full, for the whole duration of each service! As Nick continued the dialog with the church’s team he found out about a whole catalogue of other problems, which eventually led to them commissioning Narrow Road Pro to design, supply and install a complete new audio, video and lighting system.

Mexico’s José Peón Contreras Theater Selects LynTec’s RPC Series Controllable Breaker Panel

In home_page, Image, Install News, Lighting, Lighting Install News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, announced today that the RPC Series 341 remote control breaker panel is successfully installed at the José Peón Contreras Theater in Mérida, Mexico. Principal consultant and lighting designer Aleksandar Lalicki selected LynTec’s award-winning RPC breaker panel to deliver reliable, intelligent power control to the theater’s new LED lighting system.

“When my engineer and installer put in the LynTec panel for the first time, he told me, ‘Please don’t ever use relays and a switch panel with the breakers again. This is the spot-on solution, designed and built by engineers for engineers,'” said Lalicki. “Since then, with every new project that we’ve been involved with, we specify LynTec panels. In addition, we’re able to get the panels fast, within four weeks. We like to do things once and do them well, on time, and reliably — LynTec fits that philosophy.”
