WORK PRO AUDIO Adds Products To LS Range Of Lighting Consoles

News Image
WORK PRO AUDIO has added two new products to its LightShark (LS) range of lighting consoles, the LS-Wing console expander unit and the four-strong range of LS-Nodes.

LS-Wing is designed to complement and extend the original console, and the LS-Nodes are affordable hardware expanders for the LS system that add extra DMX and Ethernet connectivity without the user interface or physical controls of other units (LS-1 and LS-Wing).

LightShark, established in 2017, was the first DMX-based hardware lighting console range to offer wireless, browser-based control from a multi-touch smartphone or tablet, whilst also providing a rugged and intuitive hardware user interface in the form of the LS-1 unit.

The new LS-Wing, which is slightly narrower than the original LS-1 but still comfortably holds a 12.9-inch iPad Pro on its top surface mounting area, connects to the LS-1 via Ethernet and allows users to expand the physical controls available in their LightShark systems. Each LS-Wing adds 20 backlit buttons and 10 Playbacks, plus two further Universes of DMX control (that is, a further 2 x 512 channels of lighting control) and an extra three Ethernet ports, while a pair of USB connectors allow users to charge the associated tablets or mobile devices being used to control their LightShark system.

Four different models of LS-Node are available: the LS-Node1, LS-Node2, LS-Node 4 and LS-Node8, each of which adds its respective number of freely configurable DMX Universes to the connected DMX-capable lighting system, which can be LightShark or any other manufacturer's DMX system. The three smallest LS-Node units are available in the same quarter-rack physical format as the original LS-Core, are powered via a compact USB-C connector and may be rack-mounted with optional LS-19AR rack ears, while the top-of-the-range 8-Universe LS-Node8 ships as a 1U 19-inch unit with an LCD display to configure the unit and a Neutrik Trueone power connector. All of the LS-Node range features two-port Ethernet connectivity and supports the industry-standard ARTNet and sACN protocols. The LS-Node1 and LS-Node2 models also offer a DMX input Universe, allowing DMX sources to be merged.

"Even before LightShark was launched last year, user feedback was telling us that we were offering a compelling alternative in the lighting control market, and the success of the system since its launch has confirmed that," commented Equipson CSO Juan Jose Vila. "These new additions to the system allow LightShark users to configure their system exactly as they want it. The number of channels, physical controls and connectivity in the system can now be tailored to customers' precise requirements, while leaving the door open to expand the system as required in the future."

The LS-Wing and the new LS-Nodes will be available later in 2018.
