Wait, did anyone check out the osram/Sylvania rgbw Fresnel?
Wow, that's actually much cheaper than I thought it would be. I figured it was more in the 100k range, especially since you need fiber, and a bad boy to go with it. For 35k it's almost reasonable.
I missed it my first time around, but went back to find it today. Yes, Osram has a full color LED Fresnel. It's small, with a 3 to 4 inch lens. It's got nice color. It was set up on an automated color changing routine so I couldn't test how well it dims or tell you what it looks like when mixing white. It's got a nice zoom and a decent amount of punch for it's size. It's definitely not a substitute for an 8" Fresnel. But it would be great on a small stage for a short throw, truss warmers, or in a variety of architectural and museum applications. Hopefully Osram will give us something bigger and brighter in the future. They were demoing some screaming bright white LED chips for manufacturers to consider for future products. These things were tiny and really amazing.
@DELO72 Hey Mark can you post a link here to information about the color Fresnel and the LED chip.
And what would the price point be?
msrp was around $300
Link to the spec sheet here.
Did anyone get pictures of the fixture itself?
We shot demo video with PRG Ground Control, the ETC wing panels, the latest from Pathway, and Avo's Titan software and console line. As well as a few still shots of other products we really liked. Give @dvsDave a few days to get home and edit the video.

Should have been more specific, ment the light fixture, but that does show that they had it above the control station at their booth.
Why a picture of the light? It's just a bad boy with a camera on it and some changes internally.
I do find it funny that they're talking about saving space in the truck by going this route. A bad boy case is pretty big by itself, by the time you throw in the controller and everything else it's going to take up just as much room as a standard follow spot.
venue. You can set the controllers up anywhere. Can use a follow spot where normally would have been a bad angle or hard to get to. Best of all you don't have to make someone climb to get to a truss spot. However at 30k just for the system with no light. It will not likely see the interior of any other shop other than PRG.
I was curious how they would implement the camera and communications into one of their movers.
I agree with Duck, the benefit of a setup like this is that you can hang the mover wherever without having to worry about making space for the spot op at the fixture.
PRG on this, will upload this later this week. There are even more awesome things it can do. Touring guys were just dying to get ahold of this. It's already on tour with Madonna (4 units) and the U2 tour just got 2 units as well.

system like this isn't meant to be sold, it's meant to be rented. Although as they improve the tech, the price will eventually come down to a buyable number. U2 just got two spot ops off the truss. Their position? Right in front of the line arrays. that's a pretty big deal.
Here's the thread with our product demo video. Note we didn't get any shots of the spot itself, but there was nothing to see. It was a bad boy with a small camera on it.
