HES to Launch SolaWash & Master Wing at Pro Light and Sound Show

Following the introduction of their extremely successful HOG4 range of lighting consoles at LDI 2012, High End Systems has chosen the Pro Light & Sound 2013 trade show, held in Frankfurt, to launch several innovative new lighting and control products. High End Systems' booth (Hall 9 B80) will be the platform for the unveiling of their new SolaWash range of LED products. Additionally, LDs and other customers will get their first look at the new Master Wing 4 for the HOG4 family of products.

The SolaWash 19 and SolaWash 37 are high brightness moving wash lights which will complement High End System’s existing LED fixtures, the SolaSpot LED and Trackspot Bolt. Powered by 15 watt RGBW LED’s as well as the addition of the deep hues provided by the company's ingenious Indigo Highlighter, these fast, compact and versatile fixtures are perfect for applications from rock and roll to theatre and corporate events. Features such as built-in dynamic patterns and lenses, a 12 to 65 degree zoom, variable CTO and multiple fixture modes make SolaWash the right wash lights for any show.

"The launch of SolaWash continues our emphasis on LED technology," says Chris Ferrante, director of product management, "as well as the continued additions to our automated line. However, this is only the beginning of what we have in store this year, with some extremely interesting projects in the pipeline!" "We are committed to delivering new, feature rich and most importantly competitive products, and SolaWash provides just that mix," adds CEO Bill Morris.

As well as SolaWash, High End Systems will launch the Master Wing 4 for the HOG4 family, which has 30 fader-less playback masters - as well as a rate encoder, also found on the HOG4. The Master Wing 4, like the Playback Wing 4, comes with a 15.6" widescreen touch panel and a slot for expansion with a Super Widget or MIDI Timecode Widget.

In addition, new features for the HOG 4 family will also be unveiled at the show, continuing High End System’s aggressive release schedule. One highly desired new feature is Command Keys, which is the ability to attach any directory items to the LCD User Keys.

Key company personnel will be in attendance April 10-13th in Hall 9 Booth B80 to give customers a closer look at these latest innovations. Part of the Barco group, High End Systems is the world's foremost manufacturer of entertainment lighting and control products.
