Viruses in DMX-chains detected

April 1st, 2010 Posted in EUROLITE, FUTURELIGHT, General Tags: ,

As scientists of the University of Helsinki have now found out, much of the currently used spots in the event technology are infected with the insidious Tenebrae virus.
The bug is spreading particularly over unsecured DMX networks, and then implanting into the operating system of the host device. Particularly vulnerable are five pole data lines, because the virus is actually spreading very quickly on the two unused heads, said Prof. Dr. Lucido Alumbrado of the Prima-Lux Faculty in Helsinki. But wireless networks are also at high risk according to the study.
With his colleagues Alumbrado could demonstrate for the first time that phenomena such as excessive heat radiation as well as uneven distribution of light, and temporary changes in color temperature can be evidence of Tenebrae. Other symptoms include, according to the research team effects such as stray light, signal reflections on the control line and the denial of hot restrike.
In the final stage the Tenebrae virus may also be known as the Planckian locus, in conjunction with black body radiation, so Alumbrado further. In cooperation with technicians from Steinigke Showtechnic from Waldbüttelbrunn in Würzburg the scientists succeeded in developing a set of luminaires that are resistant to the virus. New devices from Futurelight and Eurolite use innovative security techniques such as shutter and correction filters that are designed to prevent an attack by the virus on the data line. A residual blackout is avoided by special multiplexer and molybdenum films. An installed Hauckian basket to the DMX Interface can increase the security against virus attacks even further.


Remarkable brightness in a small package – the Eurolite LED TMH-3

Multifunctional moving heads with modern LED technology and very compact dimensions are getting increasingly brighter and less expensive – and ever more popular. Eurolite goes along with this trend and presents the new LED TMH-3.

The Eurolite LED TMH-3 comes with all characteristics a modern moving light in this class needs: the built-in 30-watt LED is state of the art and guarantees a remarkable brightness thanks to its high grade of efficiency. Yet the dimensions are considerably small and power consumption is low. The LED TMH-3 only needs a small base area of 265 millimeters in diameter and is ultra-light with its 7 kilograms. Power consumption is low at 100 watts maximum.

Eurolite’s small moving head features a color wheel with seven primary colors. Furthermore, it has a gobo wheel consisting of six varied designed rotating gobos. The beam angle of the focusable objective lens is 12°. The TMH-3 can be set up as desired or installed pretty much everywhere via its integrated mounting plate.

When compared to compact spot lights the TMH-3 is just as good. This is true at least for direct competitors with 250-watt halogen lamps (ELC 24 volts) or HTI discharge lamps. Yet in terms of energy and maintenance costs the opponents are outshined by the TMH-3.

The product family is completed by a bright washlight with 36 LEDs (EUROLITE TMH-4) and a matrix projector for impressive beam effects with 64 LEDs (EUROLITE TMH-5).

New competition by Steinigke

November 27th, 2009 Posted in General Tags: , , ,

Weihnachtsfrau1Our last Twitter contests finished and the winner has already received their prize from us. Congratulations once again. Of course, we will report the experiences of the winner about his OMNITRONIC MMC-1.

After we and all the participants felt about this idea of a raffle in conjunction with Twitter as well, we have decided to start another sweepstake. This time, the profits will still be a little exuberant participate, so it is worth even more. But this time we will no longer be so easy to emerge victorious. The last game was simply a matter of retweet one tweet, which was set by ourselves. Of course that was easy.

It will not be so easy this time. It is certain that another Twitter account will be necessary. But you should look, if you have already saved our YouTube channel in your bookmarks. Because so much was mentioned here before: it will go, among other things, at one of our videos stored there. You will then see an oddly dressed man, and it will be resolved in any equation.

Whichever style, but the exact procedure, we will announce here and on all of us kept platforms like Twitter, Facebook, News on Steinigke.de etc. more precisely. Check us regularly and you can be one of the first players there. Here is a brief overview where you can read about us.

I almost forgot to mention when it starts. I can only say: “Stay tuned …”
