City Theatrical and Color Kinetics release touring power supply

Date Announced: 27 Oct 2004

City Theatrical and Color Kinetics Incorporated have jointly announce the release of a new touring-style power/data supply, PDS-750 TR, for Color Kinetics' ColorBlast, ColorBurst, and iColor Cove intelligent solid-state lighting fixtures.

The compact, rugged device allows easy connection and disconnection of up to 12 ColorBlast 12 fixtures, 24 ColorBlast 6 fixtures, 24 ColorBurst 6 fixtures, 48 ColorBurst 4 fixtures, and 96 iColor Cove fixtures by means of industry-standard 4 pin XLR connectors.

PDS-750 TR includes a function similar to that of the Zapi address-setting device, which enables users to address all fixtures plugged into the power/data supply to channel one, thereby allowing a starting DMX channel to be set via standard BCD switches. Built-in dimming routines allow user selectable fades to be accomplished without the need for a lighting console, making PDS-750 TR perfect for events and other temporary installations. A pass through mode allows iColor Cove fixtures to be operated. Rack mount, pipe mount, and custom output configurations are available.

CTI's President Gary Fails said, "We just listened to our customers who asked us to build this device. Many lighting shops had devised homemade ways to get partially to where we have gotten, but our license agreement with Color Kinetics gives us the ability to use their patented technology in new and innovative ways."

"We're pleased to expand our relationship with City Theatrical, whose market expertise coupled with our leading technology makes PDS-750 TR a reliable and robust solution for event and entertainment lighting applications," said Bill Sims, President and COO, Color Kinetics.

PDS-750 TR is designed and manufactured by City Theatrical with technology under license from Color Kinetics. It is available worldwide through both Color Kinetics and City Theatrical.
