New High End products at Prolight + Sound7 April 2011
Digital and automated lighting company High End Systems, a Barco company, will be showcasing a broad spectrum of product offerings at the 2011 Prolight + Sound expo (Frankfurt, Germany – April 6-9, 2011). The company is exhibiting with its German distributor, Arcus. This year’s event will serve as the launch pad for several new lighting products and upgraded solutions designed to enhance live events with creative lighting solutions.
High End Systems previewed the intellaspot automated luminaire at last year’s show, and has since, says the company, become a popular item. The intellaspot is said to offer innovations in optics, lamp configurations, high lumen output, energy efficiency, zoom range, and overall feature set — at a highly economical price point. Debuting at the 2011 Pro Light and Sound expo is the innovative “indigo highlighter” feature. Exclusive to the intellaspot, the indigo highlighter provides designers with additional LED output from the fixture and increases the layering abilities of the large exiting aperture fixture. This feature utilises four one-watt indigo LEDs mounted discretely to the front of the fixture.
Further demonstrating its commitment to automated lighting, High End Systems is unveiling the brand new Technospot. With output from a 575 watt discharge lamp, the Technospot is described as a full featured, hard-edge automated luminaire available at a lower price point than other fixtures in its class. With a large exiting aperture, broad zoom range, and extensive effects, the Technospot is designed for clubs, small theatres and the like.
Experts from High End Systems will be on hand to demonstrate the latest software release for the Wholehog line of consoles. Software version 3.2.0 empowers users of the Wholehog 3, Road Hog Full Boar, Road Hog, and Hog 3PC systems by adding new features and enhancements geared towards increasing productivity and creativity. This release includes many features requested by programmers and has recently undergone intensive beta testing to ensure reliability. Highlights include network tracking and failover, colour coding of data, keystroke macros, and more.
