Compulite launches at Plasa 2006

Plasa 2006 sees several Compulite products being introduced at stand E30 of UK distributor Stagetec.
Following the launch of the Dlite range at Plasa 2005, the largest system in the Dlite family with an integral 48/96 channel manual console is to be unveiled at Plasa 2006.
CompuPACK is a brand new range of portable digital dimmers being launched at the show. Available in either 12 x 2.5kW or 6 x 5kW power ratings a range of formats will be shown including hardwired, UK 15A, Ceeform, Schuko, Socapex and Weiland. CompuPACK can be controlled via DMX or Ethernet and incorporates both MCB protection for the incoming mains supply and an MCB per output channel. The built in LCD display and function buttons allow quick and easy setup of a whole host of features including patch, fade curve and maximum output level.
The Ethernet driven nodes ePORT and eSMS provide additional physical DMX connectors (1 in - 4 out) and remote SMS (sound, MIDI and SMPTE) for any Vector console or the Vector PC to turn it into a fully functional Vector console for back-up or stand alone operation.
After the introduction of the Vector Playback Wing in 2005, Plasa 2006 sees the launch of two additional wings, the Vector Editor Wing and the Vector Channel Wing. The Editor Wing is essentially the Vector main system editor housed in a portable unit that can be used as a remote designers control, an additional editor panel adjacent to the console or even as fully functioning Vector console when connected to the Vector PC. The Channel Wing provides access to channels and cues, it incorporates a large dimmer wheel with associated level display. Any number of these can be connected to a Vector console or the Vector PC and used as channel controllers. The wings can be set to work as a completely separate user, without interfering with the main console operation.
PLASA will see the preview of the Vector software version 3.13, which will be launched soon after the show including a number of new features such as full integration of the High End Catalyst media server allowing thumbnails of media on the Catalyst system to be automatically displayed on the Vector picker dialogue windows. The new software also offer multi-user features allowing two systems to share the same show, DMX input patch allowing any input channel to be patched to any output channel and triggering of macros from DMX, and direct on screen editing of data such as cue names and times and time line events.
