Lighting controls expert, Artistic Licence, is delighted to be exhibiting at PLASA London 2014, stand L50. This year, the focus is very much on new products that promise to break the mould in terms of concept, design and market-driven thinking.
Topping the bill is the new versaSplit system, a rack-mount product that sweeps away traditional approaches to DMX and Ethernet distribution. Designed to be a radio distribution system one day, or a DMX splitter or Ethernet node the next, versaSplit embodies a modular and configurable solution that breaks down the barriers between conventional product types. versaSplit is being launched at the show, and will be entered into the PLASA Awards for Innovation.
For gadget enthusiasts, Artistic’s new pocket-sized DMX tester, nanoScope, is a must-see. Previewed last year, the product was met with a hugely positive response, and we are delighted to announce its official launch at this year’s show. Visitors are invited to inspect the retail version on stand L50.
In other new developments, Artistic Licence has recently upgraded and expanded its popular range of DIN rail mount DMX splitters. The original product, Rail-Split RDM — a 6-output DMX/RDM enabled splitter — now offers the additional functionality of a fix/filter mode, which can be a panacea for a host of DMX compatibility issues. For those needing a simple, high-quality splitter without RDM or fix functionality, the new product Rail-Split DMX should prove a draw for budget conscious customers. Finally, for those who like to set the dial to eleven, there will soon be the option of Rail-Split Extreme – this product offers all the features of Rail-Split RDM, while benefitting from extra output protection against electrocution and static discharge.
Artistic’s digital video-to-network converter, dVnet, completes the line-up of diverse technology on offer. This innovative controller for pixelated displays is proving to be a big hit in TV studios and high-end commercial installations that require sophisticated effects, but not the full complexity of a conventional media server. The latest version includes new features such as support for IP cameras and streaming internet sites.
Company CEO, Wayne Howell, comments: “I’m genuinely excited about our forthcoming product launches, which I think have the potential to shake-up the market in a big way. I encourage everyone to drop by our stand and see why!”
