In a joint display with ETC, High End Systems enjoyed record success at the recent LDI exhibition in Las Vegas. HES showed a variety of exciting new products in the 200+ fixture rig, including the SolaHyBeam 3000, TurboRay and SolaPix automated luminaires.
High End Systems’ TurboRay has already seen high profile use in many concerts, television and other live events. Manufactured in Austin, Texas the TurboRay marks the return of High End Systems products manufactured in the USA. Automated Lighting Product Manager Matt Stoner commented. “It is especially gratifying that the wash capabilities of the TurboRay are recognized among its huge variety of other specialties, like its complex aerials and marvelous face look. It just affirms what lighting designers have been telling us all along, TurboRay is ‘much more than a pretty face.’”
Along with the new SolaWash 1000, the SolaPix family and the SolaHyBeam 3000 were also unveiled at this year’s LDI show. With their small footprint and next generation brightness, SolaPix 7 and SolaPix 19 take the traditional concept of a pixel wash and push it to its maximum potential. Patent pending Halographic Pixel Definition and the FleX Effects macros each give SolaPix a unique ‘edge’ in the marketplace.
Designed for beam control, aerial effects and raw power. SolaHyBeam 3000 features an exceptionally efficient White Light LED engine, a large front aperture and optimized long throw optics for superior light output throughout the fixture’s wide zoom range.
The annual Hog FactorUSA lighting programming competition was another highlight of the show, with the Plaid Pigs from Carnegie Mellon University bringing home this year’s top honors. For the first time in Hog Factor history, next year’s Hog Factor Europe champions will win a trip to LDI in Las Vegas. The contest is open to people aged 18 to 25, from across Europe, CIS, Africa and the Middle East. Applications are open until January 15 and the final will be held at Prolight + Sound, Frankfurt in April 2020.
