Multiscreen Control

Folsom Research www.folsom.com

Developed to simplify multiscreen presentation applications, the ScreenPro Plus from Folsom Research allows implementation of a 3-screen show from a single user interface. The operator can select from up to 16 universal inputs accepting composite video, S-video, component video and computer video sources (640 × 480 VGA to 1600 × 1200 UXGA). Sources are scaled to match the native resolution or “sweet spot” of the projection devices to ensure optimal image quality. The product supports 14 different transition effects including dissolves, wipes, cuts and fades. Transition duration is programmable, and each screen output channel supports two buffered “Program” outputs (one 5-wire BNC and one HD-15) and a “Preview” output (HD-15). Two to 10 auxiliary outputs are provided on the rear panel of the unit, and a preset storage feature allows screen sets to be programmed to a single preset button for quick recall.

Sound, Lighting and Motion Controller

Simon-Kaloi Engineering www.skeng.com

Combining multichannel audio, control and lighting into one product, the Simon-Kaloi Engineering company has developed the SLAM-2000 sound, lighting and motion controller. The SLAM-2000 records and plays up to eight independent channels of CD-quality audio. It has a full DMX-512 interface for accepting or providing DMX lighting control, can be networked with other SLAMs (or other products) via an Ethernet port, and has eight optically isolated direct-trigger inputs. Audio and control information is always perfectly synchronized and stored on nonvolatile solid-state memory boards, so there are no tapes or hard drives to malfunction or wear out. Four memory board slots allow up to 2 GB of memory. Sampling rates can also be varied to further conserve memory, ranging from 5.51 to 48.0 kHz (DAT quality). Standard audio WAVE files can be loaded into the SLAM; or you can directly record onto the SLAM in real time from standard CDs, tapes, etc., and the SLAM will convert the information to the standard WAVE format.

Signal Routing Matrix

LCS (Level Control Systems)
www.lcsaudio.com

Developed to exceed the demanding requirements of live productions and themed entertainment, the Matrix3 offers unparalleled flexibility for solving tough dynamic audio matrixing, processing and automation requirements. Systems can be configured from 8 by 8 all the way up to 400 inputs and 512 outputs with 256 buses. LCS innovations like SpaceMap's multidimensional panning and Wild Tracks' asynchronous playback with Safetynet redundancy are improved. New features include matrix delays and EQs, compressors, as well as delays and EQs on every input/output, Cobranet I/O, digital I/O and selectable gain analog I/O. When combined with the CueConsole modular control surface, the Matrix3 mixing/processing engine becomes a powerful FOH console for live theater and concert applications requiring automation. The four controllers — Faders, Meters+, Transporter and Editor — are sectional pieces of the console that can be configured in any manner imaginable. All fader control points in the system, including LCS's “virtual” groups, are re-mapable on a cue-by-cue basis to the 16 motorized faders on the Faders controller. As faders change function for the next scene, the LCD display above it displays its new function. With this feature, less faders are required to mix a large number of inputs.
