Hi all, The TD at my high school is debating adding some color scrollers to our inventory.We currently have ~25 PAR 64s for down washes, 12 Source Four Junior Zooms, a mix of old Leko 30* and 40* lights (so old that I don't even know the model name)(about 80 of them). In addition, we just ordered 3 days ago 40 Source Four Junior 36*s. We have an ETC Express 24/48 light board. I have done some preliminary research into color scrollers, and have found some interesting things. What we are considering buying are color scrollers for 12 of the PARs, along with 16 of the Lekos / Source 4 Juniors. From what I have found so far, it looks like the Apollo Smart Colors are the best value. 12 of the 10-inch ones cost ~$5000, and 16 of the 7.25 inch ones about ~5,000. I figure that once we add in the power supplies, cables, and shipping, it should come out to around ~$13,000. 1) Does anyone have any recommendations for other reliable brands that don't cost an absurd amount? 2) Do my prices seem reasonable? i.e. Am I getting a good deal on these? Now for some technical questions. Our light board (ETC Express 24/48) has two DMX ports on the back, 1-512 and 513-1024. We plug the board into the theater using the 1-512 port. To plug the scrollers in, I would run the cable into the 513-1024 port, and set the first scroller DMX address to "1". My question, however, is this: We have almost no DMX ports in our theater: 1 in the booth, and I think we have one stage right. To run from the 2nd universe port on our board, I get that I would run a really long cable from the board out onto the catwalks and from there to the electrics. However, how does the DMX work from there? Do I plug it into the 5-pin DMX on the first power supply unit, and then run another DMX cord to the 2nd power supply unit, and so on? We have plenty of 120v power outlets on the catwalks to plug the power supply units into, so that's not a problem. Is my proposed setup feasible? Any suggestions for improvements? Thanks for all your help!
