Now a tradition at select Messe Frankfurt shows, Solaris Flare IP HD outdoor LED fixtures – the world’s brightest – can be seen lighting the Grandhotel Hessischer Hof, opposite the Messe main entrance, every night during the show. HD Single-head and HR dual-head versions of Flare IP are available for a variety of architectural applications and can be seen up close at the show stand.
This year TMB introduces the ProPlex IQ Tester, the first Ethernet tester for entertainment production. Inspired by input from the world’s top production and staging professionals, the IQ Tester is a true “all in one” device, and a watershed addition to the ProPlex range of data distribution devices. The hand-held IQ Tester’s attributes include:
- “Wireshark” for analysis of any Ethernet protocol, plus network troubleshooting
DMX receive/transmit + DMX timing analysis + DMX recorder + RDM controller
Bidirectional Ethernet-DMX gateway
“Smart" DMX cable tester
PoE tester – determine capabilities of any connected PoE source
SMPTE Timecode, LTC receiver/analyzer, and LTC transmitter
Update Solaris/ProPlex firmware without need of a PC
Several additional new products can be seen, including the new Flare Q+ Rayzr. Following on the spectacular success of the Flare and Flare LR fixtures, this new razor-thin Flare, with its patent-pending, 15-degree indexing PreSet Yoke, offers famous Flare brightness, smoothness, performance and control in a smart, super low-profile, 'blade' format.Flexible mounting and joining options are available for scenery, truss, pipe, and floor. Vertically hang coupled units up to 5m in total length. Rayzr has both silent and super-bright modes, and is available in 50 and 100cm lengths.
The new ProPlex DIN Rail FloppyDrives offer a complete, quality range of DMX control for LED tape and neon of all kinds, and the Digital FloppyDrive version provides RGB(W) pixel control for Digital FloppyFlex LED neon. A new multiple universe Digital FloppyDrive is yet another new addition to the range.
Also introduced at Frankfurt this year is the latest addition to the Solaris Mozart range of “perfect pixels.” The new Mozart One is a decorative set-lighting fixture with a single RGBW pixel. A unique, wide-angle serrated concentric lens, plus 8-bit colour dimming, and 1200Hz flicker-free refresh rate makes this Solaris addition worthy of the name Mozart.
First shown at Light + Building just last month, TMB’s new FloppyTape range is a comprehensive selection of highest-quality, professional-grade LED tapes. Consistent and bright, with very high CRI values, the FloppyTape family includes a complete range of profiles and diffusion accessory options – all good in stock. All this, backed up by TMB’s renowned service and support, makes for a truly professional LED tape option.
