Eurolite presents Bigfoot foot controller

Eurolite Bigfoot

Program a light show and control it with your feet later – that’s possible now with the foot controller Bigfoot by Eurolite. Bigfoot is a full-fledged lighting controller, packed in a foot bar.

Create shows and call them up

While most foot controllers are mainly designed for playing pre-installed effects, Bigfoot goes one step further: It enables you to program creative light shows and to control them by feet. Up to 12 devices with 16 DMX channels each can be operated at the same time – from PAR spots to moving heads.

Color and movement effects

Pre-programmed color and movement effects make programming shows easier. Up to 15 chases with several steps can be saved and combined to a show in live operation mode.

Comfortable use

The Bigfoot is divided into two sections. Above the handle is the programming section with potentiometers and buttons. Below the handle, which also serves as impact protection for the potentiometers, is the live section. It consists of 6 robust foot switches and 2 big pedals. The switches are the same which are used for guitar effects. You control the speed, choose and start a program, use the blackout function or activate the sound control mode with them.

The pedals control the fading time of the scenes as well as the master dimmer function for the brightness. If desired, the latter can also be used for controlling other functions or devices like a fog machine.

The two displays guide through the programming and make use easier by presenting the names of your shows, their speed etc. in live operation mode.

Robust and durable – with case

Made of stable metal, Bigfoot withstands knocks and kicks. Thanks to the big handle, it can also be carried very easily. An optional case protects the controller during transport and provides for a secure position during operation.

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.

HYPNOtize me!

March 22nd, 2017 Posted in EUROLITE, News, Press releases, Product news, Prolight+Sound Tags: ,

Eurolite comes out with hypnotizing effects with light rings

In the run-up to Prolight&Sound 2017, the brand Eurolite brings new LED moving heads with compact dimensions and amazing effects to the market: The devices with the melodious name “Hypno” captivate viewers with luminous rings.

Eurolite LED TMH Hypno-61

It’s all in the name

The name predicts the characteristics of these moving heads: LED rings, which are arranged around the lense, create hypnotizing effects in bright colors, while a light beam comes out of their center.

Two versions

At the moment, there are two versions of the Hypno, which, despite their similar looks, differ in their composition: The spot version is equipped with a powerful, white 30 W COB LED; you can modify the projection by using color wheels and gobos. Around the lense, three LED rings with a total of 76 RGB SMD LEDs have been arranged.

The second version owns a 60 W COB LED in RGBW colors, which creates a vividly colored beam. Around this, four LED rings with a total of 88 RGB SMD LEDs are at your disposal. You can control the LED rings completely individually on both devices. The moving heads can be controlled via DMX or operated in stand alone mode.

Compact and lightweight

Despite their impressive effect and their assertive light power, the dimensions of the Hypnos are manageable: Both versions are only 35 cm high and weigh only 5 kg. This makes them excellent for mobile use; solo entertainers or smaller bands are well equipped with these devices. Even when installed in clubs, the Hypnos perform perfectly.

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°.

“Extra hot!“: LED effects with laser

February 10th, 2015 Posted in EUROLITE, News, Press releases, Prolight+Sound Tags: , ,

A lot of hybrid effect devices are cavorting on the market. So far, these have been combinations of acceptable single effects, which made a satisfactory mixture. Now, these effects impress like never before, as their fine tuning is better than ever – and especially the integrated lasers are really convincing.

Just on time prior to the Prolight+Sound 2015, Eurolite now brings three effect devices on the market, which combine well-established LED effects with a laser class M2. That not only saves installation time, but provides perfect use of space – and a colorful light show of course, even at small events.

Choice of three models

You have the choice between a KLS, a hybrid flower effect and an LED bar. If you know the KLS from Eurolite, you can guess that there’s more hidden in a KLS with integrated laser – this representative of the family offers a nearly complete club lighting on one bar: Two derby effects, four strobes and two slim spots share the bar with the laser. The KLS comes pre-assembled in a transport bag.

Almost as well equipped is the FE-1500 Hybrid Laser Flower. The classic flower effect has been fitted with 8 strobe LEDs and a laser and now appears as a colorful bouquet of lights.

The third effect is the LED Laser Bar, offering 190 LEDs. Located in the center of the color changing bar is a laser with the colors red and green.

All three effects can be controlled by DMX. The LED Laser Bar additionally features an infrared remote control – the KLS even comes with a remote control and wireless foot switch.

Saving time and space

All three devices can be installed quickly and bring a party mood even into the smallest locations. This makes them the perfect devices for small rooms as well as for mobile DJs and solo entertainers.

The effects can be seen at the Prolight+Sound 2015 at the booth of Steinigke Showtechnic (hall 11.0. booth A17).
