Bad Boy, Chris Conti, and PRG at LDI 2009

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting a Bad Boy demo from Chris Conti, product manager at PRG this year at LDI 2009.  Chris gave us the rundown on all of the features of Bad Boy – from optics and color to servos and touchscreens.  I am working on another interview with Chris for some more in-depth information on the fixture.

Have I mentioned I really like this hoss of a moving light?  That thing is designed all the way down to the smell!

I broke the demo video up into three parts, and I have embedded them below.  You can also check out the JimOnLight.com Youtube Channel, where all three are listed.

Thanks to Justin from iSquint for the second camera view!  I added this earlier, but it needed adding again.

The MF/V (MF/5) from Main Light

Marcel over at The Captain’s Blog (the Gearsource blog) posted an article about the Main Light MF/V LED panel moving head back in the first third of June.  For some reason I’m just now reading it – moving across the coutry does a number on your Firefox tabs, doesn’t it?

Main Light’s LED panel head looks pretty cool – seems to have fast pan and tilt, reasonable output, and decent video processing.  Check out this video:

Main Light’s page on MF/V is here – and thanks, Marcel!

Mac 250 Krypton Is Turning SIX!

Get out the clown birthday hats and someone buy a big cake (cream chese frosting, of course) – because Martin’s Mac 250 Krypton is about to turn six years old!  Mac 250s are such workhorse fixtures – I’ve seen so many of them in the past five years, and I’ve toured with them.  They’re good stuff.

Here’s something just extra special – Martin is offering 10% off of their price for Mac 250 Krypton from now until the end of June.  Check out Martin’s page on this deal.

Happy Birthday, Mac 250 Krypton!  Thanks for never showing up to work hung over!

PRG’s Bad Boy

Give this video a moment to load.

PRG has some heavy guns bringing up the rear in the luminaire department, with the Bad Boy moving head fixture bringing all of its 48,000 lumens with it.  The Bad Boy is, according to PRG:

PRG’s Bad Boy™ is an elegantly engineered, hybrid luminaire that combines the qualities of a traditional automated light with a large venue fixture. Powerful and brilliant, road ready and reliable, Bad Boy offers a host of features not previously found in large-scale units, including efficient re-lamping, addressing, and overall ease of handling, that enable it to respond with precision and clarity.

Cool.  Check out that 8:1 zoom – from 7° to 56°.
