    Be sure to bring the Gel to USITT. I'm sure there are some of our CB members who didn't get to see it at LDI who would love to take a look and chat with @Joel N about it and any updates to the product.

    Gel Update: We have not done anything additional since LDI. Our team has been buried with a lot of outside projects. We will be at USITT with my super secret demo kit. Bring anyone by the booth and I will go over it with them.

    Ron,
    Sorry to report no additional updates. Our outside project work has gone a little through the roof and this swamps the R&D team. I will come back if anything changes. Feel free to bump me any time.

    Hmmmm, the original press release wasn't on April 1 by any chance? Ah, nope, never mind.

    No new updates and no, not an April fool thing. Real Gel can be printed but we do not have any updates to share.

    Most interesting aspect for me is the split colors.
    I have a hard time trusting the comparison of printed vs conventional gels.
    And since I'm probably guilty of overusing the super popular colors in my conventional fixtures knowing I have LEDs and movers for all the crazy stuff, I'm less likely to be sad when an obscure color disappears.
    I think what would be more exciting is pushing the envelope of what can be printed and knowing that the industry is going so far LED, the possibility of holographic gels that could color shift as you change focus in a S4 or something like that.

    Lots of good thoughts. I think it's ultimately a really cool idea and could come in handy as a situational option, but I need to play with it before I can imagine a printed product being the new norm. As for cost, until it out-prices lamps or tape, gel is the often the least of my budget problems. I've also never run into a problem with discontinued colors -- I guess I haven't had to order the right one yet. There are some exciting possibilities though for sure. I've had designers want me to order a random green, for example, hate that green and ask for another option. Argggg... I could see the benefit to ordering a sheet of a green gradient from which they could cut several options. Also the idea of printed color combinations/patterns is exciting -- especially inside a gobo rotator
