Avolites showcases Arena and Optical Titan Net Switch at LDI
USA – Avolites' family of consoles, dimmers and networking products will be showcased at LDI Las Vegas on booth 2004, hosted by Group One Ltd. Avolites Media will be on booth 2216, exhibiting its industry-leading range of Ai media servers which work intuitively with the entire Avolites family of products.
Key members of the Avolites team, including MD Steve Warren and sales director Koy Neminathan, will join Group One, its respected distributor and US partner.
One of the stars of the showcase is the Avolites' Arena console with Optical Titan Net Switch, both of which are now shipping. In addition, new software in Titan version 9.1, featuring enhanced pixel mapping functionality, fully custom Key Frame Shape engine and fully featured theatre functionality.
"The Arena console has attracted a huge amount of attention since launch – we've been inundated with lighting designers, rental companies and specifiers," says Avolites' sales director Koy Neminathan. "Feedback has been fantastic on the vast array of faders and buttons alongside an integrated touch screen, as well as the 7" touch screen and the rotary encoders. The unique Optical Switch built in to the console was hailed as an incredibly useful tool."
The Avolites Arena is the ideal console for festivals, theatres and anywhere that a larger control surface is required. It combines the popular interface of the Tiger Touch II with 30 additional Playback faders and expanded live control options and features.
Alongside the main display, a second touch screen provides an additional workspace window, also labelling the adjacent macro buttons and rotary pots.
These fully assignable playback encoder pots allow intuitive control of channels and effects. The six LCD screens display electronic legends for 30 faders, for speedy access to all your playbacks, fixtures and palettes.
A brand new optical output means the Arena is equipped for fibre connections, with no signal loss over long distances, from front of house to the stage - essential in large and outdoor venues.
Offering seamless Multi-user compatibility, the Arena can be used as master, back-up or extra programming surface, considerably cutting your programming time by allowing multiple Titan programmers to work simultaneously, before the main console takes charge.
Arena is capable of processing 16 DMX universes, with 8 physical DMX outputs, and this can be further expanded with Titan Net Processors for up to 64 universes.
Both the new Arena and Quartz consoles offer MIDI in and headphone out on the console as well as a seven-band Audio Trigger functionality.
The Optical TNS is perfect for connecting FOH to stage using Cat5E Ethernet cables for distances under 100m, and an Optical input for fibre connections over distances exceeding 100m. The 1 Gigabyte network switch also features a built in UPS to ensure the stability and resilience of the show set-up.
LDI exhibits from 23-25 October at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
