Lutron Launches Industry First…Taking Drapery in a Whole New Direction

Coopersburg, PA (Sept. 9, 2009) – Lighting control manufacturer, Lutron Electronics, has taken drapery in a whole new direction with the introduction of the Kirbé vertical drapery system. An industry first – this new type of window treatment smoothly pulls draperies up and completely out of the way at the touch of a button.

No longer limited to drawing drapery left to right, the Kirbé allows the homeowner to operate draperies up and down at the touch of a button. Great for residential applications where the use of drapery is desired, but stack-back blocks the window and impedes the view, the Kirbé rolls completely out of the way allowing the homeowner full access to a window or door and the view beyond.

New Software For Soundcraft Vi Series Brings Real Power To The User

With the Soundcraft Vi Series winning new friends daily, it’s not surprising that Soundcraft continues to develop this outstanding digital console with new features and facilities.

The main feature introduced in V4.0 is user-configurable fader layers. This allows an engineer to map out his own channels on any of 3 user layers so that a combination of different inputs can be placed on one layer, as opposed to the standard set of sequential channels on the 3 fixed layers. This allows, for example, the main vocalist mics to be programmed to appear in the same location on every layer, so they are always accessible, or bringing other essential channels closer to a central operating position. The 5 main output fader layers may also be customised in a similar way, meaning, for example, that 8 stereo aux masters can be used on one layer for instant access to multiple in-ear (more…)

As standard the Si1 has 32 mic inputs mapped on 16 faders, and with four dedicated Stereo Line channels, four dedicated FX Returns from the four stereo Lexicon FX processors can mix up to 48 inputs. Eight balanced insert sends and returns are provided, along with (more…)
