Robe BMFL, a blank 'Czech' for the future of Robe?
It took three years of Robe’s R&D to develop BMFL and to meet all of its design requirements – a new 1700 W Osram short-arc lamp, a 5-55° zoom range, a new, optimized CMY color mixing system, an electronic stabilizer and only 36 kg on the scale – for an exceptional fixture. Since early January, the date of its release, 1500 projectors were sold worldwide and production for the next three months is already reserved. It has certainly hit the ground running!

Ayrton MagicBlade-R... There’s magic in the “R”
Once again Ayrton is in the spotlight with a new product presented at Prolight+Sound 2014 and it’s already been a big hit. The MagicBlade-R, a moving-head luminaire with seven LED emitters arranged in-line, may look familiar but it has little in common with its older brother, the RollaPix. This member of the RADICAL product line, has a single row of seven 67-mm diameter 4.5º collimator optics coupled with 15W RGBW Ostar Stage LEDs, famous for producing long-range tight beams.
SSL: Live 500 digital console (1)
In 2013, just before a PL+S in Frankfurt there was rumor that SSL was up to something and the announcement was like a bomb going off… SSL was presenting a live digital console for the first time.

The console, the result of many years of observation and experience surveys, should include everything that is the current standard for digital consoles for live performance but also incorporate new and innovative technologies.

Clay Paky Mythos, more than a million... lux, that is!
Clay Paky leads its competitors at a cracking pace. Six months after the Super Sharpy was presented at Prolight+Sound, topping the headlines from Plasa is Mythos, a compact spot with a power consumption of only 500 W and an incredible punch, like the Super Sharpy. Soundlightup was invited to a preview presentation of the Beta version by Clay Paky France before Plasa, and we had time to get out our Minolta lux meter and perform some flux measurements.
Lab Gruppen IPD 2400
With the IPD “Intelligent Power Drive” series, Lab.gruppen has created a new concept for the amplification of medium-power sound reinforcement systems that incorporates a DSP platform and intelligent power management into an affordable 1U rack sized package, which is light and easy to set up. To do this, the Swedish manufacturer has changed its tune in amplification technology by opting for fully bridged class D instead of class TD (tracking class D) and is working on the optimal management of energy resources of the switch-mode power supply (without PFC) by distributing the available energy between the two channels as required.
