GDS are expanding the applications of their LED lighting solutions here at Prolight + Sound 2018, primarily with their multi-award-winning ArcSystem.
With the ArcSystem Fade To Warm technology, GDS are able to replicate the actions of a tungsten lamp with an LED fixture, by enabling their LEDs to retain their characteristic warm light temperature upon dimming. Fade To Warm technology is now to be rolled out across the whole ArcSystem Pro range. This technology enables venues to dim their LED house lighting, to create an atmospheric, warm ambience. ArcSystem Fade To Warm is now be available in 1 Cell, 2 Cell, 4 Cell and 8 Cell fittings.
We also had the opportunity to learn about a system of recently developed power over ethernet solutions for power distribution for LED fixtures. This system can dramatically reduce the cabling space required when compared to tradition power distribution systems, by utilising ethernet cabling combined with specially designed breakout boxes in order to distribute the power efficiently.
