Three ELAN g! Homes Featured In CEDIA’s Spring 2012 Electronic Lifestyles Magazine

Asserting that its g! system is now the preferred choice of dealers and installers looking for a state-of-the-art entertainment and control system that is easy to install, easy to maintain, easy to update, and easy for the consumer to use across all control devices, ELAN® Home Systems today announced that three of the thirteen home installations featured in the forthcoming Spring 2012 edition of CEDIA’s Electronic Lifestyles® magazine are ELAN g! Systems.

Electronic Lifestyles magazine is published three times a year by North American Publishing Co. (NAPCO) and is the custom installation industry’s only lifestyle oriented coffee table-style magazine that is distributed to more than 30,000 dealers, installers, architects, interior designers, home builders and solutions manufacturers.

According to ELAN’ Paul Starkey, “Having three g! installations featured in the Spring 2012 edition of Electronic Lifestyles is a powerful illustration of just how much momentum has been achieved for this remarkable entertainment and control solution over the last two years. We believe that the ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System is absolutely the most user friendly solution that is also the easiest to install, expand and maintain, requiring the least amount of code and shorter installation time than competing systems. More and more dealers every day are discovering this for themselves and their businesses are growing as a direct result.”

The Spring 2012 edition of Electronics Lifestyles magazine will feature three homes with ELAN g! Systems installed by Piscataway, N.J.-based Electronics Design Group, Miami, Fla.-based Audio One, and Juarez, Mexico-based New Technology Experience.

The ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System provides users with the most uniform and intuitive icon-based control from their favorite devices including TVs, touchscreens, touchpads, PCs, iPhones and iPads. The standardized interface works across platforms, so that the trendy g!Mobile app users love on the iPhone appears and works similarly on ELAN touchscreens, valets and handheld remotes as well as users’ televisions and mobile devices. And the system’s IP backbone makes it just as easy to control the system from across the room – or across the globe.

Individual “apps” for each subsystem allow the user to control security, climate, lighting, media, irrigation, pool/spa, messaging, video and photos with the flick of a finger. Access is fast and secure through any ELAN home interface or globally with mobile Internet enabled devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Netbooks and PC Tablets. Since the intuitive interface empowers users with personalized scheduling and detailed history views, high consumption subsystems like lighting and climate can be closely monitored and managed for a greener lifestyle – and substantial energy savings.

Clay Paky Sharpys Shine at GreenWaves III Concert at the University of Central Florida

Environmentally friendly Clay Paky Sharpy met eco-inspired GreenWaves III recently, the third annual event at the University of Central Florida (UCF) that implements environmental and social best practices to promote the need for conscious sustainable solutions.

Lighting designer Lighting designer Justin Geiger of California-based Impulse Creative Group used 16 Sharpys for the concert portion of the event, which featured electronic artists and notable DJs. It was billed as the first interactive concert at UCF and took sustainability to the next level by utilizing a PowerLeap dance floor, which uses “Piezo” flooring technology to convert the energy from the crowd into reusable energy for the concert.

Geiger deployed his complement of Sharpys on the main stage at the UCF Arena. “We used them on the wings, flanking a 40-foot projection wall and had four on the stage,” he reports. “We needed fixtures that would deliver the biggest impact for a high-energy electronic show with budgetary restrictions. We had free reign on design.”

Once Geiger showed his client a picture of what Sharpy can do, “he had to have it,” he says. “At one point he said, ‘I don’t care what [else] I get as long as I get those Sharpys!’”

Geiger’s Sharpys not only gave a big, dynamic look to the concert but also made the laser light provider envious. “The laser guy on the show hated them because he thought the Sharpys were gonna run him out of business!” Geiger says.

A.C.T Lighting is the distributor for Clay Paky in North America.

Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky Area Manager for North and Latin America, adds, “One of the outstanding features of our Sharpy is the punch it provides relative to its energy-efficient qualities. This festival is the perfect place to showcase those features.”

About Clay Paky
Headquartered in Seriate (Bergamo), Italy, Clay Paky SPA has a history of designing and manufacturing innovative professional show lighting. The company was founded in 1976 by entrepreneur Pasquale Quadri who anticipated the enormous impact the evolution of technology would have on the show and entertainment worlds.
