Main Light Industries Acquires Wireless Solution’s W-DMX BlackBox F-1 G4 Transceiver Via A.C.T Lighting

Main Light Industries, Inc., the Wilmington, Delaware-based firm, which has become one of the largest rental houses in the country, has invested in Wireless Solution’s W-DMX BlackBox F-1 G4 transceiver. A.C.T Lighting is a North American distributor for Wireless Solution Sweden AB, the world’s leading manufacturer of wireless lighting control equipment.

Main Light was prompted to purchase the W-DMX when it was looking for a wireless solution to work with its Clay Paky Igloos as well as other wireless units in its inventory. Igloos are tough, sturdy, dome-shaped enclosures that offer complete protection against rain and humidity and maintain a perfect working temperature for fixtures even in hot or sub-zero conditions.

“We tested various wireless DMX products, and Wireless Solution’s W-DMX box proved to be the most reliable,” says Main Light’s head of client relations, John DiEleuterio. “We will primarily be using it for festivals and outdoor events. The Igloos are a perfect complement to and protection for the more compact line of Clay Paky fixtures, and the W-DMX on board allows them to be more easily used in remote locations.”

Wireless Solution’s W-DMX range of products is the consistent choice of top professionals in the lighting industry. It is the only company to offer dual-band 2.4 and 5.8GHz (optional) with RDM and adaptive frequency hopping in both OEM single PCB or Standard Tranceivers with FLEX function to change a unit to be both transmitter and receiver. The W-DMX BlackBox F-1 G4 comes standard with RDM. All F-Models are both transmitters and receivers and offer a full FLEX with optional anything in/anything out (for example: DMX in, Art-Net out or s/ACN in, DMX out).

Some of Main Light’s clients have already deployed the W-DMX, in conjunction with Clay Paky Igloos, for projects. Len Applefeld, lighting director at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, used the Clay Paky Igloos on Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2013. He said, “The onboard W-DMX was a great feature to have. We had six Igloos on top of the stage roof, and the W-DMX saved us a lot of time by not having to run data.”

Rob Hendry with BEW Productions recently used them for a Halloween event on the Battleship New Jersey on the Delaware River off Camden, New Jersey. “A last-minute addition of Clay Paky Sharpys housed within Igloos were used on the massive cannon turrets of the battleship,” DiEleuterio explains. “Due to the amount of steel on the ship and no sight line, Rob was hesitant to use wireless DMX at first. But the Clay Paky Igloos synched up flawlessly, which he said made for a very pleasant first experience with wireless DMX.”

Main Light, which has increased its inventory of Clay Paky lighting fixtures annually via A.C.T Lighting (the company is the exclusive North American distributor for Clay Paky), found its new Wireless Solution’s W-DMX purchase marked another positive encounter with A.C.T Lighting. “We expect and receive nothing but the best in the way of support when it comes to dealing with A.C.T,” DiEleuterio reports.

Yamaha CL Digital Console Update V 1.7 Available in December

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. announces the December availability of Version 1.7 software upgrade for the Yamaha CL Series Digital Audio Console. The upgrade, available via free download, is based on significant end user input and will provide enhanced efficiency and versatility along with significant improvements that will be especially valuable for mixing engineers in festival and similar complex event setups. Several of the features implemented in V 1.7 will make the CL an even better console choice for festivals, since many of the new features are already familiar to PM5D users.

New CL V 1.7 features include Selective Load/Save for set up data such as scene memory, libraries, etc., can now be individually loaded from or saved to USB memory providing an efficient way to load complex setup data. The HA Option for changing input patches now makes it possible to select whether the end user wants to use the HA settings from the patched port as is, or copy the channel HA settings to the patched port in order to quickly change input patches when mixing in a fast-paced environment without having to copy HA settings.

“As with all Yamaha Commercial Audio products, updates are implemented based on suggestions primarily from our end users,” states Marc Lopez, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “Their input is quite essential, now, and for future generation of products.”

CL V 1.7 updates also include: in the Sends On Fader mode, the assignable encoders (Gain/Pan/Assign knobs) can now be used to adjust channel level and panning for sends to stereo buses. Custom Fader Bank setups can be stored to, and recalled from, individual scenes. At busy events that involve multiple engineers, this feature can make it easy to change custom fader bank settings without having to switch users. And, the sends from input channels to buses on which the send point is set to PRE, can now be assigned to DCA groups for muting via a DCA Mute Option for PRE sends.

Other new features in CL V 1.7 include improved Channel Name Display In the Sends On Fader mode where channel ON/OFF status is now indicated in the channel name display. Additionally, a “black” 9th color has been added for the Channel Color Bar. More points are available in the Metering Point field on the meter display with the addition of “Pre GC Meter” and “Post Digital Gain Meter”.

Also in CL V 1.7, the Analog HA gain and Digital HA gain indication have been improved and are both displayed in the Selected Channel View Gain/Patch field at all times. The HPF status of R Series and similar external HA units are shown in the Gain/Patch field as well. DCA/MUTE group and mute name display are now shown in the DCA/Mute Group Assign Mode pop-up display. Improved Channel Link display indicators in the CH Link Mode pop-up display will make it easy to see current link group settings.

In addition to the above new features, CL V 1.7 includes Extended Cue monitor adjustment range that extends from -30 dB to +20 dB. It is now possible to specify whether latched or unlatched external switches are connected to the GPI input ports. And, when mounting I/O devices on the Dante network, the device type can now be detected without the description in the device label, allowing for better customization of names.
