I told you I’d be back on Thursday! Â Check THIS out:
I just got some inside information about something awesome Richard Belliveau and his team are doing over at High End Systems. Â You see that image above here? Â It’s the new system going into the Intellaspot XT-1 – a system of indigo LEDs that mount into the bumpers on the front of the Intellaspot! Â These things are deep indigo, VERY bright, and look great as a wash all on their own. Â When I say indigo, I mean indigo – they’re not deep blue. Â The output is just quite amazing, let me say that. Â The four 1W LEDs are such an interesting contrast to the idea of round beams of light in contrast – can you imagine having a look where all your Intellaspots were in white hard0edged beams, and you crossfade to the indigo highlighter?! Â I can just taste that look in my head!
If you’re going to ProLight and Sound in Frankfurt, Germany April 6-9? Â If so, you’ll get to put your hands on the new Indigo Highlighter on the Intellaspot XT-1. Â I’m bummed, I wanted to go, but I have two shows back-to-back this year. Â I can’t really complain, you know? Â The House of Atreus is opening tonight – we got some great photos too!
How it has been explained to me is that the Indigo Highlighter on the Intellaspot XT-1 works just like the SHOWGUN and SHOWBEAM fixtures, where you can have the LEDs track with the main intensity of the fixture (which would all go out, for example, when you take down a fader), or you can haveÂ independentÂ control of both the LEDs and the main output. Â Either way, both awesome. Â OH – and you can strobe the indigo LEDs!!!
Also, if you’re going to be in Frankfurt at ProLight and Sound, you’ll be seeing a new fixture from High End Systems! Â You’ll be meeting the TechnoSpot – a fixture that has all of the features with a hard edge, and a lower wattage output. Â TechnoSpot also has the large aperture too – more huge beams of light! Â Take a picture, email me, somebody!
