Zero 88 wins again in anniversary year

Eaton’s Zero 88 team enjoyed a busy PLASA this year, in their 45th year serving the entertainment industry.

The new FLX S consoles were on display and proved very popular – designed for applications where space, time, ease of use and flexibility are key factors. Also on show at PLASA for the first time were the Chilli Pro 12 range of relay, dimming and bypass dimmers and the versatile Alphapack 3 in a new powerCON TRUE1 version.

Zero 88 continued its winning ways, collecting a coveted PLASA Award for Innovation for the inventive RigSync application, a feature available with the latest version of its powerful and flexible ZerOS console software. RigSync demystifies the work of DMX addressing for console users, allowing them more time to focus on being imaginative, while the technical elements sort themselves out via the console talking to the lighting rig. The judges commented: “RigSync opens up lighting creativity opportunities for non-technical people in an entry-level environment.”

This is the second PLASA Innovation Award that Cwmbran, Wales based Zero 88 has won in two years, adding to 2015’s recognition of the new FLX lighting console.

“We are absolutely delighted to have won another Innovation Award so soon,” stated Zero 88 general manager David Catterall. “We believe in making lighting control affordable, straightforward and fun, and this is a great example of ingenuity from which many people will benefit.”
