ISE 2024. Day Two

Day two at ISE 2024 with many new products and another record-breaking turnout. Today we talk about Chauvet, K-SCAPE, COSMOLIGHT, Follow-ME, Minuit Une, RCF, Cameo Lighting, DAS Audio, Starway, Blaze and TAF.


In a dedicated room in the demo area of the trade fair, the French company Minuit Une, already known for IVL Photon, offered visitors the chance to see the brand new IVL Dice in action, a 200 W, 38 cm-sided, 10 kg laser fixture, which with its 49 DMX channels is able to unleash infinite combinations of light beams and thus infinite excitement in a compact housing.

It is a product capable of offering a large coverage of space with a very small footprint, and opens up unlimited prospects for eye-catching lighting installations in small to medium-sized venues. With four independent light planes created by four closely spaced motorised mirrors, the IVL Dice offers exceptional coverage of space with a small footprint, making the hall or stage appear larger. With an aperture of 90 degrees, the IVL Dice units easily combine to further increase the range of perspectives.

On the rear side of the tilt, there is a movable frosted outlet, capable of illuminating a small room. When the tilt is flat, it reveals static frosted edges, offering even more possibilities. Nine beam patterns (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 and up to 256 beams) can be accessed via DMX with control of beam size, indexing and rotation for each pattern.

IVL Dice sets a new standard for volumetric lighting.



Many new products were presented at ISE by the well-known US brand, in a well-designed stand with a backdrop featuring all the recently launched fixtures and a series of display areas dedicated to theatrical, architectural and installation applications.

We begin with the Maverick Storm 3 BeamWash an IP65 fixture featuring two independent zones for zoom control ranging from 4.6° to 53.6°, allowing beam and wash combinations from a single fixture. A 16-lens outer zone and a 12-lens inner zone combine to offer a power output of 19,062 lumens from the 28 RGBW 45W LEDs. The special lens design ensures excellent colour mixing and narrow mid-air beams. Dual-mode operation enables pixel mapping with ArtNet/sACN and separate assignment of motorised functions to DMX.

Also new is the Colorado PXL Curve 12, also IP65 rated and featuring 12 fully mappable independent heads with single pixel control, individual zoom, tilt and colour control. Basic and advanced operating modes and an extensive macro effects library including virtual gobos, motion macros and foreground/background colour control make it easy to create complex, volumetric looks. Seamless edge-to-edge editing maintains pixel pitch between projectors, helping to make effects consistent.

STRIKE Array 2C and 4C are two new IP65-rated blinder concepts, equipped with two or four pods that can be aimed independently. The intense output provided by the RGBA-WW LED source offers a full range of colours and a wide choice of white temperatures with exceptional colour rendering. Features include a precise dimming system and a Red Shift function that heats the colour temperature of the light as it dims to emulate a classic tungsten effect. Finally, the proprietary Tool-Free interconnection system allows the STRIKE Arrays 2C and 4C to be easily interconnected to achieve scalable configurations. Omega-Bracket latches are installed on both the yoke and the back of the unit, simplifying the truss assembly process.

Extremely interesting is the new STRIKE Bolt 1C, an IP65-rated strobe with built-in Smart Frost that enables an electrically polarised filter to be activated and instantly switch from powerful strobe to colourful homogeneous effects generator. The proprietary Tool-Free Stacking system simplifies the interconnection of the STRIKE Bolt 1C with STRIKE Arrays, resulting in blinder/strobe arrays. Multiple suspension points, end-to-end connections and rubber feet offer maximum rigging versatility. Finally, the supplied stealth filter can be applied in the presence of cameras.

On the theatre side, we find the Ovation shaper engine in two new fixtures: OVATION Reve P-3 IP, an IP65 par with four interchangeable lenses and LED source. This is an outdoor fixture with high power and light quality, incorporating all the advances of the Ovation Rêve RGBAM LED source and offering the versatility of Narrow, Medium, Wide and Very Wide lenses. The same concept has been applied to the OVATION Reve F-3 IP fresnel.
