Let’s talk about technology. Where do the ideas for new solutions come from?
Ideas for new products are either conceived based on new available technologies (like high-power LEDs for instance) or by our clients who talk with us about their demands. Our main mission is to create lighting tools that are suitable for professional applications. That involves good light output, high quality components and reliable performance. Before we start creating a new product we test the latest technology available. That process can often take 12 months or more before we even start with the product itself. Designing and testing the new product normally takes another 18 – 24 months before it is ready to be launched.

North Creek, NY – April 11, 2013 – Creative Stage Lighting has announced improvements in their Dura-Flex product line.
Dura-Flex Cat-5E cable is now the optimal choice for heavy-duty and industrial applications. Dura-Flex Cat-5e now has an improved outer jacket that’s tougher, but easier to handle. Dura-Flex Cat-5E is chemical resistant, CMX rated for outdoor use and, like all Dura-Flex cables, REACH and RoHS compliant. Dura-Flex Cat-5E is extensively tested to insure compliance to TIA network standards.
Creative Stage Lighting has also introduced Dura-Flex 3-pair communication cable designed for use with Kinesys Motion Control products and other applications that use 3 twisted pair cabling.
Both cables join the entire line of Dura-Flex cable in their commitment to safety standards and lead-free construction. For more information call (518) 251-3302 or visit dura-flex.com.
We see a great future for this system and especially welcome the forward thinking upgradeable options for this unit.

VMB’s Biggest Towerlift Is Now Available
Prolifts S.L. has released the new VMB HDT-8 lifter. The Heavy Duty Tower is now VMB’s largest towerlift elevating 350kg (772lb) to a maximum height of 8.2m (26.9′) and will be shown on VMB’s stand at Prolight & Sound in April.
BGV-C1 certified, the HDT-8 includes the ALS (Auto Lock Security) system, a safety feature which automatically locks the lift masts as they rise. It also has VMB’s SRS (Sequence Retainer System) meaning the masts rise and descend in sequence, one after the other.
The masts are manufactured from aluminum to keep the weight as low as possible. Steel outriggers and a special reinforced base add further security. A double handed special winch makes elevation easier and the lifting carriage has options for 3 different lifting positions. The HDT-8 has been designed and manufactured to offer a truly rugged and durable lift.
VMB is distributed in the United States by Creative Stage Lighting. For more information please call (518) 251-3302.
Lighting Designer Edmond Deraedt recently visited us in North Creek for Avolites Training. Here’s Edmond checking out the Sapphire Touch.
Selvin Cooper, Ai service and support engineer, Avolites Media added, “This was a great event to be involved in. Anagram used the video mapping capabilities of the Ai media server to great effect, recreating the look of the sewer lair across a large video canvas. The team took the various technical challenges in their stride and we look forward to collaborating with Anagram on future projects. Cowabunga dudes!”
