I used one (with the Magic Sheet) back in my college days. Looking back, I have to laugh at their choice of equipment for their new theatres (this was back in 1992-1996). At the time it was "cutting edge", I suppose. It's a decent board, but I don't think it natively suports DMX 512 (Colortran had its own protocol which predates DMX 512 standards). Perhaps you can get a converter (pricey, costs more than the board is worth) thruDoug Fleenor.
Siegfried & Roy at the Mirage opened in Las Vegas in 1989 with a Colortran Prestige 3000. It was one of, I think, six lighting consoles controlling over 3,000 conventionals, plus VariLites, scrollers, DLCs/PAR battens, projection, laser, atmospherics, etc. Subsequently, the Prestige was replaced with a Colortran Gold Medallion, and finally an ETC Obsession II.
Prestiges were all the rage in Chicago in the late 1980s. My only hesitation with using one today would be finding the appropriate monochrome monitor. (Well, that and lack of factory support.)
I have the Prestige 4000 it is principally software upgrades from the 2000. It supports DMX up to 400 dimmers/ The monitor is a Hercules type i.e. monochrome but the pin out and pin function is more important because the scan rates on monochrome monitors vary depending on the type but more than one type will work.
I had a typing error there I meant to say, "mine is a 2000 using version 4.1 of the software"
The version of the software fixes machine code bugs and for anyone that is interested is installed by programming the machine code onto PROM chips and replacing the existing PROM chips on the boards. Version 4.1 was the last version available and has proven reliable.
One thing to note with the earlier versions of this console is it will only work with the HD 3.5 inch disks you can recognise these as they only have one small square hole in the corner instead of the two found on HD DD disks. The disks only hold 722 kBytes intsead of 1.44 Mbyte. A modern disk reader can often be configured to read both type of diskettes but an old disk reader cannot read or write to a 1.44byte disk. The magnetisation field in the head is diffrent so formatting the disk does not solve this problem.
