A new generation of lighting control for a new world of light / Pro Light+Sound 2011 - Hall 9.0 Stand C50

(PresseBox) (Zaventem, ) The new Freedom and Liberty lighting control desks from ADB Lighting, on show at Pro Light+Sound in Hall 9.0, Stand C50, introduce a new generation of intuitive and creative control for every type of light. Fully equipped for today's fast evolving lighting world, the compact but powerful Freedom integrates generics, moving lights, LEDs, video servers and more.

ADB will also show the latest developments for the ALC4 multi-purpose LED luminaire, the EURODIM Twin Tech dimmer, and the compact, quiet running MIKAPACK 30 dimmer.

Both Liberty and Freedom combine ADB's proven product durability with the latest and most exciting blend of software and hardware in our history.

For theatre, opera, television and many other applications, Freedom can support up to 2,048 channels and 32 universes, while Liberty supports up to 1,024 channels and 16 universes. Up to four external touch screens (Freedom) or two (Liberty) can expand the capacity of the built in touch screen. An array of interfaces makes working simultaneously with different network protocols simple.

The desks provide fully integrated management of scrollers and gel strings, while the motion section's push wheels and dedicated keys make programming hundreds of moving lights intuitive and flexible. Freedom also boasts a high precision, super smooth trackball for even faster control.

The 24 physical subfaders (192 in total, organised over 8 banks of 24) with flash and assign keys allow you to load or select content without confusion. Editing content is simple, too, and thanks to Channel mode, even beginners can programme a show on the fly - making Freedom as fast for novices as it is for experts ADB's brand new Hathor software is based on the 'what you see is what you get' concept, providing a friendly and safe programming environment that's much faster than encoding a show with a control desk based on the editor concept.

Based on a typical theatre sequence linked to a master Playback, Freedom provides a traditional keypad with every classic tool such as +, -, Thru, Invert, All, and @level.

With a clear, user friendly and customisable graphic interface, Hathor software always presents essential show data on the main screen, letting the operator focus on the show and the stage.

Operators can store and recall personal configurations and context-specific displays. Controllers and editors can be docked either side of the screen ready to become fly-outs, and individual dynamic zoom of all editors and browsers provides immediate control of the user interface. With external touch screens, programming complex shows is even faster with a wealth of information on display.

Simultaneous access to all the information and data a lighting designer or director requires, and the many recording options for memories and pallets, allows Freedom to meet all show production needs.
