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°.

„Business Class“ among headphones: Omnitronic SHP-777BT convinces testers

July 10th, 2015 Posted in News, OMNITRONIC, Press releases, Product news Tags: ,

German trade magazine ear-in put the Omnitronic SHP-777BT to the test in their latest issue. The result: Excellent. The headphones convince whether used as wireless companions on the go or wired on an amplifier.

Omnitronic SHP-777BT grey

The speciality of the SHP-777BT: Thanks to Bluetooth equipment, the headphones can be operated wirelessly. This way, they are a perfect match for smartphones as well as IPods and ideal travel mates. Of course they also work with cables – and show strengths then, too.

Balanced sound without cables

When judging sound, the testers differenciate between active operation with cables and passive operation on an amplifier: „Active, via Bluetooth, the sound is balanced. The bass is not obtrusive, a little taken back in the highs. It doesn’t sound dull at all“.

Operated passively on an amplifier, the SHP-777BT shows other strengths: „Connected to a good amplifier, the sound positioning moves back into the head, definition and dynamics become more distinguished. The tonality shifts in different directions now with mighty basses and radiant highs, which, together with the gain of mentioned qualities, really agrees with the headphones“.

Classy appearance

The features of the SHP-777BT were judged business-suitable by the testers as well: „The cloth-covered headband of the SHP-777BT, which is available in grey and black, the slender joints and the modern, square-formed housing present a dignified style.“ The headphones’ fit and soft cushioning were rated as „excellent“.

Recommendable companion

It’s no wonder that the testers give an all-round positive judgement: „The Omnitronic SHP-777BT has two faces. Wireless via Bluetooth, it shows a very sophisticated, convenient character, but in team play, cable-connected with the right team mate, it outdoes itself“.

The Omnitronic SHP-777BT is recommended as wireless travel mate as well as for use with an amplifier.

“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).
