The quick-change artist among the moving heads

Eurolite presents matrix effect with zoom

Eurolite LED TMH-X25 Zoom

A real quick-change artist was presented by Eurolite at the Prolight+Sound 2017: The TMH-X25 Zoom unites moving head, matrix effect and beam spot in one device. This way, it offers absolute flexibility.

Endless possibilities

Viewed from the outside, the TMH-X25 looks like a matrix effect on the base of a moving head. 5 x 5 LEDs with RGBW color mixture are at the light designer’s disposal for creating colorful patterns, numbers, letters or animations. Each LED can be controlled individually. The device is controlled by DMX or Art-Net.

Powerful beam

On closer inspection, you detect the zoom, which changes the spot’s beam angle steplessly from 7.5° to 60°. This way, the moving head can also be used as a beam spot – the 25 LEDs with 12 W each are definitely strong enough to produce a powerful beam. Thanks to its Infinity function, the moving head can move endlessly in PAN or TILT direction.

Absolute flexibility

The impressive effect can be used for different purposes thanks to its versatile equipment: As matrix effect in a club, as beam effect on live stages or as background light in TV studios; the TMH-X25 always looks great. Its motorized zoom and the Infinity function make the spot absolutely flexible.

Ambient light for open air movies

August 20th, 2015 Posted in EUROLITE, General, News, References Tags: ,

Warm summer nights under the open sky, movies and light installations. At the open air cinema “Festungsflimmern” in Würzburg, the organizers not only offered an attractive selection of movies. There were also great lighting ideas: For example an ambient light for the big screen.

The fortress Marienberg is a historical backdrop. Of course it lends itself then to light up the old walls, corridors and trenches. That was exactly what the organizers of the company „°die eine… event“ did – with numerous Eurolite spots. A special idea was to install a background light similar to the ambient light of TV screens, which increases the projection surface for the eye and blends the scenery in the overall view harmoniously.

This idea was realized with Eurolite IP Pads. In the bigger outdoor movie theater, big trees behind the screen served as projection surface. In the smaller theater, the ivy-covered walls served as reflecting object. Nicolas Manger, initiator of the open air movies, is happy with the effect: „We just tried it. The spots are really powerful, so we could light up all our backdrops with just a few devices.“

At the fifth edition of the event, 25 movies from „Moulin Rouge“ to „Wild Tales“ attracted more than 11 000 visitors. Prior to the movies, bands and musicians performed and spread festival atmosphere. This year, the team of 25 helpers was confronted with rain in the first days and then heat of 40°C – but that was not a problem for humans nor technology. Thanks to IP equipment, the Eurolite spots still shone when German musician Andreas Kümmert played in the rain and people danced in front of the stage in rain capes.

Installed were 12 LED IP Pads with 24x8W QCL, 12 LED IP Pars 24x3W TCL, 20 LED IP T1000 RGB 10mm and 5 LED IP FL-150 COB 3000K 120°.

Eurolite in Las Vegas!

July 22nd, 2014 Posted in EUROLITE, General

The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas is the biggest Electric Dance Music (EDM) Festival in the world. In 2014, more than 400 000 visitors from 40 countries came to the festival site in three nights. They were dazzled amongst others things by hundreds of Eurolite spotlights.

EDC 2014

 

It is the mixture of music and light installations, which makes the EDC Las Vegas so unique. Featured in this year’s light installation were numerous Eurolite Audience Blinders with COB technology – they had their major performance on the main stage, the Kinetic Field.

 

Stage as high as seven storys

The field was dominated by the biggest stage ever constructed in the USA. On a width of more than 130 meters and more than seven storys, over 1000 light effects were mounted – among them more than 1000 square meters of only video panels. The Audience Blinders from Eurolite were spread all over the stage as warm white dots.

2.5 millions Watts for one stage

Steve Lieberman, responsible light designer of the “Kinetic Field”, relied on the power of 2.5 million Watts to make the main stage shine brutally bright this year. In comparison: The three stages at “Rock am Ring” had a power consumption of 650 000 Watts – altogether.

The LEDs around the main attractions were controlled by MADRIX Ultimate.

Seven stages were offered to the dance-crazed crowd – on three of them, Eurolite products were used; including hundreds of PMC-16, meanwhile regular EDC guests since last year.

Who’s Who of electronic music

In 2014, EDC took place for the fourth time in Las Vegas and attracted visitors from 40 countries into the gamblers’ city. The line-up read like a who’s who of electronic music: Show acts from Avicii and Afrojack to Carl Cox and Tiesto provided entertainment for the masses.

Introducing MADRIX® LUNA 4 and MADRIX® LUNA 16

April 22nd, 2014 Posted in General, Product news Tags: ,

inoage® expands the range of hardware products with MADRIX® LUNA 4 and MADRIX® LUNA 16.

 MADRIX Luna

Products of the MADRIX® LUNA range are mainly units that work in the background of an LED installation. But they are still an important and essential part of the overall setup. The number of LEDs used in a project is constantly increasing and so are the technical requirements. That includes the rapidly growing amounts of data and their distribution.

MADRIX® LUNA products are easy-to-use Art-Net devices to take on the functionality of reliable data distribution in such increasingly complex data networks. They receive and send DMX512 data over network and put out 4, 8, or 16 DMX universes per unit over 5-pin XLR ports (2,048, 4,096 or 8,192 DMX channels). An additional XLR port is available to receive DMX-IN data. Every MADRIX® LUNA can be used as a USB 2.0 DMX512 unit as well.
