    Roland’s V-800HD Multi-Format Video Switcher may have eight mixing buses instead of 16, and four SDI inputs instead of eight. But like Roland’s V-1600HD, it lets users tap into a wide variety of analog and video sources, manipulate the imagery and display clean, sharp video, even on large LED displays.

    GAM Plexus Master Lighting Control

    PLSN Staff | Product Spotlight | January 11, 2012

    Controlling lights can be as simple or as complicated as you like.  Traditionally, lighting designers have been limited on how the control surfaces are laid out by the desk manufacturers.  Depending on which lighting desk you get, you are limited to a set amount of faders or how you access and control parameters of a moving light.

    PLSN Staff | Product Spotlight | October 13, 2011

    Solar-Powered Stage from Kleege Industries and Sustainable Waves

    Kleege Industries has been around since Nevin Kleege designed and built his first “plank and ply” stage in 1984. Sustainable Waves has been an alternative energy trail-blazer for eight years. The two companies got together to come up with Helios 250, a solar-powered mobile stage. It toured the country from May to August 2011 with the Willie Nelson’s Country Throwdown and Vans Warped tours, soaking up the rays and providing enough power, even on cloudy and rainy days, to provide 120 amps at 120V for up to 12 hours.

    Moving the Moving Light with Parasol Systems

    PLSN Staff | Product Spotlight | August 12, 2011

    When we talk about moving a light, two things instantly pop into our heads. The first is getting up on a ladder and physically moving a light either to a new position or to focus it differently on stage. The second is a moving light that can remotely pan and tilt. The latter, of course, is easier, as it can be done from a desk. A new player to the field wants you to add a third dimension of moving a light — remotely moving the physical location of the light fixture itself as it relates to the stage or field. Read More...
