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.

DMX – Digital Multiplex

How digital controlling protocol works!

Every retailer is familiar with it, the standardized process to digitally send controlling information to dimmers, „intelligent“ spots or effect devices – DMX: But how exactly does it work and whose idea was it?

Digital data transmission has been around since the 80s. But controlling consolemanufacturers used differing systems, incompatible with each other, so the customer was forced to buy spots and controllers from the same producer. This changed in 1986 when the DMX standard was introduced, based on an initiative of the USITT (United States Institute for Theatre Technology). After some improvements were made and problems were solved, it was realized four years later. The common and still valid name of the standard is DMX-512 (1990). Even though some work has been done on it since then, there’s currently no newer version.

Makes DMX control easy

January 2nd, 2013 Posted in EUROLITE Tags: , ,

For those of you, who don’t want to need both hands for controlling the lights: The EUROLITE DMX LED Operator IR2DMX + IR-FB puts the full control of your DMX devices in just one hand.  With its infrared remote control, certain KLS systems, SLS spots and LED PARs can be controlled easily. That’s perfect for party rooms and solo entertainers.

This way, a KLS light set, a LED bar and four spots can be controlled at the same time with one remote control. Existing systems can be expanded with the EUROLITE DMX Operator IR2DMX + IR-FB.

Controlling light has never been so comfortable

The DMX Commander 24/48 of Eurolite makes controlling light convenient. It allows you to control 48 channels via 24 faders and call 36 scenes directly via 12 faders and 3 pages. Over all, 48 programs can be memorized via 4 pages. There are also RDM functions and the possibility to switch the wait-timer from 0 – 2 minutes to 0 – 10 minutes.

But there’s more to it than that: The Commander 24/48 supports you whenever possible. It shows active scenes and chasers with its intelligent status LEDs. You can save scenes and chases on a USB stick via USB connection. Firmware updates can also be transmitted by USB.

That’s how the Commander 24/48 makes it easy for you to work. It’s particularly suitable for smaller stages, which use LED effects as accents, and for applications with few channels: Like for example in theatres or clubs.
