From what we were told it's Bad/Best Boy only. However this is very new product. One can certainly see the long term possibility of other variations of the product line.
You have missed the point Duck. How many products out there can spin and dance, blaze through color changes, rotate gobos and then instantly stop to track the lead singer walking around? How many follow spots can use rotating gobos, strobe, rapid color changes, all while being hung over the stage in the confined corners of a smaller theater? Imagine what someone like Cirque can do with these to uplight acrobatic work from the deck? Do you want to see a follow spot operator at center stage on the deck? No of course not. But with these you can have one there virtually. What about the fact that the LD can see the camera feed from every spot op at the same time and select the spot they prefer like a director on a TV show selecting cameras. Plus the spot ops could all be in the same room with the LD... you don't even need headsets anymore. There are so many new creative possibilities this opens up for the first time by merging the worlds of a programmed mover and direct human control.
No, that's not what I was talking about. A good example was used in the video - a performer in a flying rig being followed by floor-mounted moving head(s). You can do that as you mention, but it requires a person being there. That's kind of a niche situation, but I'm sure you could think of others.
So you have a follow spot with dual gobo rotators, strobe, CMY mixing, the ability to be controlled by the light board or not, and small enough it can be located on just about any batten in any theater?I just don't see the hype behind the other features as we already had those.
Well it's PRG. They are more in the giant show rental business than the retail business anyway, plus it's a REALLY new product. Give it a few years and we'll see variations from the mainstream retail manufacturers come along scaled down to something more affordable.That's all I'm saying is to me the price tag is way over the top for a very niche product.
