Apollo GelWraps


Apollo Design Technology, Inc. has introduced Apollo GelWraps, a new way to color fluorescent lights. Unlike sleeves and tubes, GelWraps can be installed without re-moving the fluorescent bulb from the lighting fixture. Scored seams shape the gel into a triangle that allows the filter to be conveniently fed and “locked” around the bulb, reducing labor while safely adding color. Dimensional shipping and storage costs are also minimized as GelWraps are shipped and stored flat.

J. R. Clancy SceneControl Hand Held Remote

J. R. Clancy, Inc. has announced the availability of a hand held device that extends the capabilities of the SceneControl automated motion control system to any point in the theatre. SceneControl Hand Held Remote has a six-inch graphic touch screen in two-dimensional color, and 14 function keys that allow the operator to select sets or multiple sets and move them between show-specific soft limits.  From the touch screen, the operator can see and execute the presets and cues that were written on the theatre’s SceneControl 500 console. This allows the operator to run cues from the position that provides the clearest sight lines.

Martin SmartMAC


The new SmartMAC from Martin is a 150-watt moving yoke profile luminaire offering fanless thermal management with fewer moving parts and extended service intervals — up to two years with a 9,000-hour lamp, according to the company. A convection cooling system uses the aluminum casing and fins to conduct heat away from the fixture head. Fewer moving parts reduce wear and tear, increase energy efficiency and reduce heat. A field angle of 24.5° allows for a greater projection diameter at shorter distances. The total output is 4,600 lumens with the standard MSD 150/2 lamp (3,000 hours average). A long-life (9,000 hours) CDM 150 lamp is also available.
