UK LED manufacturer i-Pix is launching two new i-Line range products at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt: a 600mm/2’ six cell unit and a 1200mm/4’ 12-cell unit. The latest technology from i-Pix builds on the already-established BB range, and each fixture incorporates a custom 40 Watt RGB and daylight white light engine, which is coupled to an 8º homogenised optic. With the increased output, both fixtures can also be used as ‘blinders’ or as direct view lights, and a broad choice of internal strobe sequences are available. The fixtures are also suitable for close up illumination where a completely blended coloured lightsource is required, and for pixel-mapping, as they incorporate internal chase patterns that can be used to create different kinetic colour animations which can work on cyc or set washing of for eye or camera purposes. Various optical accessories are offered to stretch and narrow the beam or to mimic asymmetric dispersion, with a choice of optics for different height applications. When the lightsource is blended, the beam pattern can be manipulated without any colour separation. The i-Line range comes with a ‘next generation’ electronics architecture that delivers a ‘superbly smooth’ dimmer response, with internal patterns, sequences, memory storage and playback as standard. Like the original hugely popular i-Pix BB range, the i-Line units have a durable housing and are robustly built to deal with the demands of touring and rental / staging environments. Various accessories make for simplified rigging, and an innovative quick-response user interface plus RDM DMX as standard aids remote setup and addressing. “We are very proud of the greatly increased intensity of the i-Line range, demonstrating that year-on-year LED technology continues to improve,” said i-Pix founder Chris Ewington, “The BB range launched in 2007 saw the first entertainment sector products to use high powered light engines with homogenised optics. Four years later, the new i-Line products deliver over five times the original output. “Whilst this output was impressive back in 2007, the i-Line, the new i-Pix M25 Pixel Matrix and the Mk II Satellite all offer users more unique creative potential with numerous improvements”. www.i-pix.uk.com
