This "on the deck
" idea has been done numerous times. Many instances, the source 4 is mounted on a weighted stand, or most likely a pole running parallel
with the lip of the stage
"deck". The units are dropped into a source 4 (like a Strand
), that allows the LD
one way, but rotate only the barrel
. The beam rotation/movement is maximized for the given space, allowing the LD to hit most of the stage. All source 4's have "catcher" clips that lock scrollers, frames, add-on fixtures to the unit
. The I-Cue
can be turned upside down, or for that matter, placed in whatever position the LD would prefer. However, the true test comes when the LD has the entire unit turned upside down, and they need to hold gobo
holders or rotators in the fixture. That get's a little tricky! So, most of the time, a LD will get a source four
that allows for barrel to be fully rotational, versus having to turn the unit upside down.
If this doesn't make sense, please don't hesitate to call
me. The I-Cue is perfect for this kind of application....
