The multichip technology is on the rise

51837870It has been a long way from the use of fire as a light source by mankind to the invention and use of electrical light. It took several thousand years before Thomas Edison finally made the first step into a mass market with his version of the light bulb. Yet since then development has progressed ever more rapidly and opportunities are almost limitless; to such an extent that the outdated Edison bulb is becoming slowly but surely obsolete.

The light of LEDs, however, will probably continue to glow for a very long time. Although the technique only emerged at the end of the past millennium progress achieved until now is tremendous. At first it was problematic to display different colors but now the spearhead of the development comes forward and presents LEDs that can display all RGB colors. The tri-color LEDs (TCL) or multichip
LEDs. What are the advantages compared to standard LEDs?

TCLs combine the three RGB components in one housing, so that a homogenous color emerges via one lens – an elegant color effect is the result. The multichip technology, which brings the LEDs closer together, provides homogenous color mixtures even with short distances. This is a problem for many effects employing standard LEDs.

Moreover, if a lighting effect is equipped with TCLs the color saturation is higher compared to an RGB LED effect. Even if the power consumption is actually lower. An example can easily demonstrate that. We assume that two lighting effects (RGB + TCL) are equipped with 90 LEDs each. In order to create the color red, 30 red LEDs light on the RGB effect. On the TCL effect, however, 90 LEDs will light red. It is not surprising that the color density is higher even if the power is lower, is it? TCL effects also go strong when fading colors. The outlines are sharp at all times and no erratic cone of light can be seen.

Of course TCLs do not make sense everywhere and the conventional LED has its right to exist. But the example of the multichip technology clearly shows how far the technique has progressed. And one thing is for sure: development has not come to an end yet.

Ready for carnival

January 25th, 2010 Posted in OMNITRONIC Tags: , , , , , ,

5ac3ec4fWe have arranged two attractive sound packages at an unbeatable price for the upcoming carnival season. They are powerful and with huge accessory. Just take a look yourself.

The technology of common satellite systems is normally placed in the subwoofer. Especially in the so called fifth season these systems run the risk of becoming victim of filled bottles and glasses. That is why we decided to offer a solution where the amplifier is securely stored in a case away from the crowd.

The features in detail: Depending on the set we are talking about either two PAS-208 tops or two PAS-210 tops. To support the lower frequencies the bandpass subwoofers PAS-15 and the PAS 18 respectively have been chosen. An HDA-series amplifier with three channels and integrated crossover runs the three speakers of each set.

The accessory consists of an amp rack with a cupboard for storing away cable and other small parts and two stands for the tops with carrier bags as well as mains leads for all speakers. Compared to buying each article individually you save 33 per cent.

EUROLITE LED Scanner TSL-100 convinces in test

January 8th, 2010 Posted in EUROLITE Tags: , , , ,

There is no denying the result: “All in all, the TSL-100 LED Scan convinces in every aspect.” For its issue to be published on 14 September the magazine Soundcheck tested the new scanner rigorously and gave top grades for the participant. What makes the EUROLITE TSL so special is the illuminating power together with the price, a fact that the trade magazine equally agreed on. According to the testers, currently there are very few LED-run spot lights in this price category that are able to project gobos precisely and with high light output. The EUROLITE LED Scan TSL-100 easily competes with the class off 250 watt halogen devices, states the magazine. No wonder the testers come to a completely positive result in which they praise the good workmanship, the great price performance ratio, the enormous luminosity and the low current consumption! Read more in the next issue of Soundcheck. If you would like to have more information on the TSL visit our website www.steinigke.com.
