ACT Entertainment To Offer Lighting Controllers From Visual Productions

News Image
ACT Entertainment is to begin offering lighting controllers from Amsterdam-based manufacturer Visual Productions to customers in the United States.

This includes the brand's latest solution, RdmRelay, as well as its CueCore3 and TimeCore products, which will all be presented at the ACT Entertainment Booth at InfoComm 2023 (Booth 3643).

The latest Visual Productions innovation is the RdmRelay, a DIN rail-mounted device with four heavy-duty relays that are 16A/250V AC resistive. Controllable via RDM and DMX512-A, the RdmRelay can be set via an RDM commissioning tool. It can also switch 110V/230V equipment with up to 16 Amps per relay, ideal for controlling non-DMX equipment or switching off a lighting installation. Powered with 9-24V DC 5W (PSU optional), the EN55103-1/EN55103-2-compliant RdmRelay can operate in -4°F to 122°F (-20°C to 50°C) temperatures with humidity ranging from 10- to 80-percent.

ACT Entertainment will also showcase the Visual Productions CueCore3, a DMX lighting controller for fixed installations that boasts 2,048 channels. A completely solid-state device, the CueCore3 is a secure, low maintenance control solution. The on-board flash-drive memory allows for storing DMX shows, while programming is done through the CueluxPro lighting control software or dynamic web interface. Additionally, playback can be fully automated and triggered by various IP-based protocols ― such as DPI, MIDI or an internal scheduler. Featuring SMPTE timecode and a real-time clock with battery, the CueCore3 can be powered over ethernet or with 9-24V DC 500mA. The CueCore3 can be set on a desktop, on a DIN rail or as a 19-inch rack-mounted device using an optional adapter.

Finally, the Visual Productions TimeCore is a one-stop toolbox for timecode. It is a simple and reliable device for generating, following and converting various timecode protocols ― for everything from SMPTE and MTC to Art-Net. Capable of sending and receiving popular show control protocols, TimeCore can synchronize all AV elements of a show, such as sound, lighting, video, animatronics and pyrotechnics. Additionally, the built-in event system can be set on a timeline that enables users to send triggers to non-timecode-capable devices. The TimeCore can be controlled via web interface and all programming data is saved in a solid-state flash drive memory device. With a large seven-segment display, user-definable controls and mounting options that include desktop and DIN rail, TimeCore is also easy to operate.
