    Running water on stage?

    Yeah, call the venue first. If it was my space the answer is no way. A hudson sprayer and pond liner is the answer of how to do it, but how do you get the water back out of the pond and how do you get the actor off the stage, and how do you clear it all out leaving a dry floor in 5 minutes. I...

    LDI has been sold

    To clarify, yesterday Google searches of the WFX website found mentions of Informa all over the place and no mentions of Questex. So I assume that means WFX 2019 was still under Informa.

    Our buddy @Ben Dickmann from Chauvet is starring in a nice little video of their new Cyc light that I posted about above. Check it out. I'm really impressed with it. I don't need cyc lights but I'm intrigued about buying a couple of them for foot lights and other applications where you need a...

    We went back and spent more time with Light Shark and I'm even more impressed. It's a great option for small low budget applications. You can buy a box for $650 and use your own Wi-Fi enabled device and you have a fully capable lighting system (iPad, Android phone, laptop... Anything that can...

    What do you want to know about at LDI?

    I'm very impressed. It's small and has a ton of kick. The "Map price" is $1,600. So with a package deal and depending on the relationship with the dealer, you should be able to get them for less than that. Below you will find pictures. Most important check out the shot with the arrow. That...

    Demonstration of the new Avo Synergy feature in Titan 12. Sorry the video quality is not the best, my phone was struggling. What you see is a set of video panels, some pixel PAR type fixtures and some strips, note how the image moves through all the fixtures smoothly.

    What a grear day! We were invited to a new product demo where you have to sign an NDA and check your phone at the door. We saw a prototypebproduct that will not be out for about 6 months or so and I believe it is going to be a real game changer. Unfortunately, I can't tell you anything about...

    We just had Pablo from Argentina walk up and introduce himself and say how much they love CB in Argentina! He says CB is famous there and any time they have a question, everyone knows to check CB. How cool was that! Thanks for saying Hi Pablo, it was so great to meet you!
