Barco unveils new lighting products at LDI tradeshow

Oct. 14, 2010
Date Announced: 14 Oct 2010 Austin, TX — Digital and automated lighting pioneer Barco/High End Systems announced today that it will be showcasing a broad spectrum of product offerings in their booth at LDI, the Live Design industry's premier US tradeshow and conference event held October 22-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year's event will serve as the launch pad for several new lighting products and upgraded solutions designed to illuminate live events with creative lighting effects. Barco will introduce its new intellaspot XT-1™, an advanced lighting fixture designed to set a new benchmark in price and performance. The intellaspot XT-1 offers groundbreaking innovations in optics, lamp configurations, high lumen output, energy efficiency, zoom range, and overall feature set — all at a highly economical price point. The DL.3™ digital light and the Axon Media Server have both been recently updated with enhanced hardware and new Version 2.0 software — providing additional media streams and creative effects, as well as a host of new features. These include new digital shutters, improved blending functionality, innovative diagnostic tools, an increase in the number of available graphic layers (from three to nine), and an overall enhancement that enables more effects to be used simultaneously. Also recently released, the DML-1200 w/Axon advances the product line's core capabilities by integrating Axon's powerful Version 2.0 software into the DML-1200 to provide the same features as DL.3 and Axon with over 1,200 pieces of royalty-free stock content included. The fixture's fast 4:1 zoom, warping and edge blending for external inputs with virtually no frame delay, and light mode with CMY color mixing abilities provide users with a full complement of unique features. Additional products on display will include Cyberlight® 2.0, SDI DMX Mixer Pro, FQ-100 fog machine, SHOWGUN 2.5™, SHOWBEAM 2.5™, SHOWPIX® and StudioPix®, and the Wholehog® line of controllers. “We are pleased to return to LDI with such a broad mix of professional products,” said Chris Colpaert, VP of Creative Lighting for Barco. “Since our last showing at LDI, we have expanded and strengthened our complete line of lighting solutions, demonstrating our full commitment to supporting the lighting industry both on the fixture as well as the console side.” The Barco/High End Systems booth is located in the main hall, Booth #408.
