_ Acclaim Lighting shows first Quad RGBW flexible LED strip product
June 30, 2016
Flex Spectrum is a new RGBW flexible LED strip, available in 5 meter lengths. As opposed to the traditional RGB+W flexible LED product with separate and alternating RGB and white LEDs, manufacturer Acclaim Lighting
now has a wonderful solution with Quad RGBW LEDs. The advantage is clear: since the separate white LED has gone and all colors are mixed inside one quad color LED diode, more uniform color mixing and even light dispersion is the result. Spectrum is designed to give you a wide range of colors to choose from in applications where both color and dedicated white are required. By mixing blue with 3000K inside the quad color diode, you get a white range from 3000K-7000K, while maintaining a CRI of 80 or better. Acclaim Lighting's Flex Spectrum is available in Exterior (IP68) and Interior (IP20) versions.

Even a simple but decorative brass socket and rayon covered connection cord do the Caret Design Light fully justice. The Caret Design Light is available in Globe and 'Squirrel Cage' shape and has great dimming characteristics, helping to create the desired atmosphere in restaurants, lounges or residential spaces.

Thornico wanted to show its compassion and asked Contractor WL Techniek and 4Stage.net to create two French national flags size 10 meters wide and 12 meters high, which was achieved in just a couple of hours.

With more and more apps for wireless lighting control becoming available, Visual Productions’ Cuety for iOS will revolutionize iPad DMX lighting control. It takes advantage of the iPad’s multi-touch capability and conforms to the industry-standard cue list system, enabling entry level users to master the ‘language’ that professionals speak when designing and programming professional lighting. And professional users now have a very affordable wireless tool for designing and programming smaller architectural, retail or residential installations as well.
The LPU, Cuety’s hardware, contains the engine that runs your show, calculates fade times and renders dynamic effects. Since the Cuety app is only the user interface, your show will continue in the case of a WiFi network interruption. Cuety comes with over 3,800 personality files, including those for generic fixtures like single channel, RGB, RGBW etc. The Cuety Remote app for iOS enables customers to change lighting scenes without ruining the programmed cues. Cuety is a genuine gem for both entry level user and lighting professional alike!

4Stage.net was consulted for co-designing and fine tuning the new lighting control system of recently opened venue Grenswerk in Venlo, The Netherlands. Combining all LED lighting lines in the venue into both general lighting and emergency lighting was a challenge, with the building control system generating the necessary triggers in case of an emergency. And of course these triggers need to be handled with priority over other lighting control, immediately indicating an emergency situation. Additionally, these LED lines need also be controlled by an external lighting desk in case of a show or performance, resulting in even more intelligence required: the standard DMX patch now changes dynamically depending on connection of an external lighting desk.
All lighting controllers were neatly installed by Maastricht based company MediaService. Acclaim Lighting’s Art SSC solid state lighting controller (2 pcs) and Art IO input/output interface (8 pcs) were used throughout the venue, while a simple looking but very intelligent Art B6 6-button lighting controller is being used in the venue’s restaurant.
