LDI 2012 Shines with New Gear

in Features

LDI 2012 show floorEach year, the industry gathers to see the latest and greatest at LDI.  This year, it was in PLSN’s home base, Las Vegas. At the time of this writing, I am still recovering from a jam-packed weekend of events, training, parties and, oh yeah, LDI!

The mood for the 8,000 people making their way to the Las Vegas Convention Center seemed to be upbeat, and if we’re still not back to the good olde days (say, 2005), throwing caution (and dollars) to the wind, it seemed a lot different than 2009.

The whole industry was in town, ready to party in the country’s adult playground, and also ready to buy. Everyone I talked to was talking about big events and shows coming up and all the new gear they would be needing to support those shows.  And as always with our business, they need it all yesterday.

The highlight of the show, as with past years, was LEDs. They are getting brighter, lighter and more affordable. The LED profile market has exploded in just 365 days. Last year, there were a handful. This year, I need all my fingers and all my toes to count the available fixtures.

LEDs are here to stay, and in a big way. Traditional dimming systems are taking a back seat when powering the fixtures. I found it interesting that DMX-controlled relay modules are making a surge again. It makes sense, though. Since a dimmer is not the best source of powering an LED fixture, relays are the clear choice.

LDI 2012 show floorOverall, LDI was a huge success, with the U.S. debut of a number of products shown previously this year in Europe, but also a whole raft of prototypes previewed that will be finalized for Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt in April.
