Avolites launches dimming and DMX distribution solutions

Originally launched at Plasa 2005, Avolites introduces several new products at LDI 2005, Orlando, booth #202. The ART-DC dimmer is a fully environmentally friendly, portable, stand-alone, wireless or DMX battery powered dimming system specifically developed for low voltage lamps. Originated for the “The Storr – Unfolding Landscape” arts project in Scotland, the Avolites ART-DC dimmer is now part of the diverse Avolites ART dimming range.
ART-DC Dimmer by AvolitesThe ART-DC runs off industrial or car batteries and dims lights up to 20 Amps. It’s currently available in 4 channel/32A modules, and it can be either a dimming or a relay/switching module. It’s suitable for dimming car headlights and other HMI/HID automotive lightsources, and there’s opto-isolated DMX in and out. A ‘Battery Save’ function kicks in to conserve energy if there’s no control signal, and there’s local control and a useful and easily readable LCD front panel display for status and diagnostics – including battery voltage measurement.
The ART-DC is designed to be used outdoors. It’s small and portable, measuring just 275 x 290 mm by 110 mm high – just over A4 size – and weighs 3.2 Kg.
Another new product is the mDMX – Mains DMX, a reliable method for sending DMX over mains cabling using Ethernet. mDMX uses multiplexing technologies to modulate multiple universes of DMX down a standard mains cable. The attraction of running just one cable is obvious and mDMX has been designed for situations where data cable management is a problem such as moving trusses and scenery, FOH data runs, temporary architectural installation and many more. It currently has a proven capacity of 4 DMX universes running concurrently over a distance of up to 400 meteres. mDMX is fully compatible with the versatile and popular Avolites eDMX wireless system.
Avolites' implementation of the dAFTdATA WENDI wireless data protocol is a new sister product to eDMX that works on the 5.8GHz range. Specifically designed for long range work and point to point, clear line of sight solutions where the 2.4GHz spectrum is busy. Avolites’ eDMX now offers this completely new frequency range, giving users vastly increased flexibility over the design of their wireless systems.
The Diamond 4 “Active Personality” system is an innovation that creates a seamless link to Media Servers and Ethernet enabled fixtures. “Active Personality” enables media clips to be viewed as graphic thumbnails from the Diamond 4 console. Also ne is the latest software for Pearl 2004 including Shapes in Chases, Playback and Palette Legends, Quick Palettes, Filter Palettes and Palette Pages.
