„Positively surprised“: Omnitronic PNM-6 convinces in test

August 26th, 2015 Posted in News, OMNITRONIC, Press releases

German trade magazine Soundcheck tested two Omnitronic PNM-6 studio monitors for its September issue. The verdict onthe studio monitors with only 7 kg weight was completely positive.

PNM-Monitor

After careful listening, the magazine stated that the PNM-6s don’t let their compact measurements be heard: „They sound bigger than they are. Especially the vehemence of the basses and low mids is amazing regarding the size of only six inches“. The fact that clipping, artefacts and reduction loss are clearly hearable, convinced the magazine: “The most important function of a studio monitor is accomplished, the PNM-6s relentlessly expose faults”.

Great price-performance ratio

Testers were not only enthusiastic about the clarity of the boxes, but also about the price-performance ratio: “Aside from the fact that the impact of these nearfields is fun, the clean frequency response allows an estimation of the basses on a level that usually must be paid with more money”.

Impressive performance

It’s not surprising that the result and the recommendation of the test arecompletely positive: „For little money you get a pair of boxes, which impress with a powerful bass section, good stereo positioning and excellent offset in depth. […] Anyone who is looking for a low priced pair of studio monitors, should definitely write the PNM-6s on his list”.

Ambient light for open air movies

August 25th, 2015 Posted in EUROLITE, Events, General, News 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 itselfthen 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 increasesthe projection surface for the eye and blendsthe 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-coveredwalls servedas 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 backdropswith 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°.

„Extraordinary“: Eurolite TMH FE-1200 put to the test

January 14th, 2015 Posted in EUROLITE, General, News, Press releases Tags: , ,

German trade magazine Soundcheck tested the Eurolite TMH-1200 FE for its December issue. The result: The Moving Head’s „flower power“ fully convinced the tester.

TMH FE-1200At the beginning, the magazine stated that the TMH FE-1200 is not a normal Moving Head: „The TMH FE-1200 is a little extraordinary“. This not only refers tothe spot’s appearance, which resembles „a piece of black stove pipe“, but above all its generatedlight: „The beams can be concentrated, so one solid beam is formed. You have a flower effect and a beam spot in one device here“.

 

Special look and great effects

Testers were also enthusiastic about the light output of the Flower Moving Head: “Everybody who thinks of a weak little spot when hearing Flower Effect, is completely wrong. The TMH FE-1200 shows a proper performance”. The – not-so-common – color mixture of the spot first evoked surprise, then appreciation: “The colors red, green, blue and white are available, but they can not be mixed properly. Depending on the color choice, single beams in these colors are created. (…) But this is no drawback at all, as a very special look is produced, with which beautiful effects can be created”.

 

Great spot

It’s not surprising that the result of the test is completely positive: „A great spot, which combines Flower Effect, Beam and Moving Head and not only makes an impression in clubs, but also on music stages or on tour with mobile DJs.“
