    What fixture is this? (Kanye West show)

    I think you're right. I've been seeing a lot of those types of lights used in large arena events lately so it makes sense. Thanks for the reply.

    What fixture is this? (Kanye West show)

    I've not actually been to the show and seen it live (because I personally can't stand the man), but I've seen pictures and video. Here is an image showing what I'm talking about... http://imgur.com/iMk500H Obviously it's not a standard stage fixture, looks like a search light to me, but...

    Converting dimmer raceway to 208?

    Thanks for the reply. The reason I'm looking to convert the raceway is because we don't currently use 208 anywhere else in the theater. So it's not accessible through any existing runs. I don't mind loosing back raceway due to the fact that it's currently unused and newer black drapes have...

    Converting dimmer raceway to 208?

    Ok, So I'll go ahead and state up front that I'm not doing any of the work on this. I'm trying to get things figured out enough so that I'll have the info to know what to tell a master electrician. Basically, our theater as a full dimmer raceway on the backwall that is no longer is use as we...

    Chinese LEDs

    This is a reasonable question. Of course most of the people here are going to tell you to only go with the top brand name stuff because they are never the ones paying the rental bill for the gear, and don't actually own anything themselves. I know several venues that are using import par 64...

    Mounting mover sideways

    rochem, I've seen the same from my experiences. I can understand the logic behind the stress mounting a fixture 90 degrees might cause on the motors. But we're also dealing with fixtures here that cost more than a lot of cars. So I've got to think this has been taking into consideration when...

    Mounting mover sideways

    I know this has been mentioned in the past. But I wanted to try to get as much info on it as possible. My question is about mounting movers sideways to a vertical truss. I don't really plan on doing it anytime soon, but it's always been a question I've had. (I'm not talking about LED movers...

    Coemar CF 1200 Wash lamp issue

    I'm having someone take a closer look at the wiring since the fixture has some age to it. I've tried lamping on from my desk and even from the fixture's built in menu and don't get anything. I'll keep looking.

    Coemar CF 1200 Wash lamp issue

    It does have a lamp on channel, but it doesn't do anything. I have smaller movers that have that channel as well in which it doesn't affect them at all. So I can't tell if it's doing anything or not.

    Coemar CF 1200 Wash lamp issue

    Hey everyone. I'll get right to the point. I have a Coemar CF 1200 wash fixture that came in from a trade. I've never worked with this fixture before so I don't know a lot about it, though it's fairly similar to any other mover. Anyway, I'm curious if I'm doing something wrong as I can't get...

    575W & 750W Source 4

    Re: small metal piece on Source Four lamp Thanks everyone. I guess I'm just used to the 575w we mostly use so I haven't seen the 750w. Thanks again.

    575W & 750W Source 4

    small metal piece on Source Four lamp Hey everyone, Just ran into an issue and wanted to get some insight on it. Over the winter another staff member ordered some 750w lamps for our ETC source fours. Today I went to replace some lamps in older fixtures and noticed there is a tiny little...

    Light bars/pipe

    Thanks for the link. This is what I needed. The reason I ask is I plan on getting smaller sections to make it easier to travel and move around if need be. I was thinking about three 10' sections for a mid stage bar.

    Light bars/pipe

    Thanks again everyone. Another question. Once I have the pipe, what is the best way to connect multiple sections to form a longer run? I know what works with plumbing pipe, but I doubt that will work sufficiently when it comes load baring.

    Light bars/pipe

    Thanks Les and everyone. I think this is the way I need to go. The side positions won't be hung above any seating positions, so while I'm going to work with maintence to make sure everything is installed properly, I can't justify getting the best of the best or the project will have to be...
