Are You Kidding? MORE LDI PICS!

Oh yeah, I have a lot more imagery of LDI 2008.  However, I’m posting this one below, but I cannot figure out for the life of me which company had the display!  If you were at LDI 2008 and know who this company is, please post in the comments so I can give them the recognition they deserved!  That screen and media server were awesome!

LDI – Clay Paky’s Booth

Clay Paky‘s booth this year was fun – more for the fact that they had a bunch of really punchy fixtures that were very, very freaking bright.  So bright, in fact, that I heard someone say “dude, is that the Clay Paky booth?  Do they have VL3000’s up there?”

The Alpha Beam 1500 is AWESOME, Clay Paky.  Just so you know.

LDI – MA Lighting’s Booth

MA Lighting had one of the more visually stunning booths this year, in my very humble opinion.  Big viz screen and ads, lots of people, and the new Grand MA 2.  What a desk – what a pre-viz built in, too!  I was looking at it with Mike Zinman of ZInmanCo, and the comment about how fanf&%$*tastic that console was came up a few times.

I took a bunch of pics of the MA Lighting booth – check them out:

LDI – Philips/Color Kinetics Booth

Philips and Color Kinetics had a softly lit, multi-color booth this year.  Lots of great new products, and unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to chat with anyone there, as every time I went over, Philips reps were swamped.

Check out the booth:

LDI – Robe’s Booth

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to spend much time checking out Robe‘s booth this year.  I went and got my badge scanned, and then I got whisked away by old friends.  Robe has been getting some good press with new product releases.  I’ve not ever had the chance to design with Robe fixtures, but I’d be open to a try.

In addition to the one pathetic image I took, there is a nice gallery on Robe’s website of LDI 2008.

LDI – The LaserNet Booth

One of the more interesting visual displays at LDI came from the good folks at LaserNet, who had big ol’ green argon beams shooting all over the convention center!  When I walked onto the floor this year, I saw the LaserNet booth immediately, and made my way over.  It’s always one of my first stops, as I’m an old laser dork from back in the times of Real Genius.

Anyone remember that old flick?

Check out LaserNet’s website – they do all kinds of great looking production in the rainbow of laser colors.  The beam splitter to images and text is always a beautiful thing.

LDI – Electronic Theatre Controls’ (ETC) Booth

ETC had a lot of really friendly people at their booth this year!  The EOS console was something that I am very interested in learning more about, especially after Mike Zinman told me about all of his excellent escapades with it.  Check out images I took of ETC’s space below.

LDI – Martin Lighting’s Area

I was very impressed at the Martin booth – lots of pixel video, the Mac III is still awesome, but I had a hard time getting anyone to talk to me about it.  Lots of people there, I’m sure I didn’t look too important, or at least unimportant by comparison.

It was great to see the Mac III in action!
