A.C. Lighting Inc. Unveils Next Generation LED Lighting & Control Solutions at LDI 2010

chromaq_color_force_72_48_12.jpgThe A.C. Lighting Inc. booth at the LDI 2010 show will feature next generation technologies from the Chroma-Qâ„¢ and Jands product ranges exclusively distributed by the company in North America (Booth 812).

Attracting much interest at PLASA 2010, the booth will feature a side by side demo of the Chroma-Q Color Forceâ„¢ LED washlight range alongside traditional tungsten lighting. The lineup includes the new Color Forceâ„¢ 12, a compact yet extremely bright (2,400 lumens) multipurpose LED fixture that is ideal for floor, wall or truss mounting. At only 1ft long, the unit's very small footprint is suitable for pipe end, shin buster and wash applications.

The Color Force 12 can also be used to extend installations of the Color Force 72 / 48 LED battens. Featuring 12,000 / 8,000 lumens output, the super bright 6ft / 4ft units provide an extremely smooth, uniform coverage for washing areas up to 26ft high. All models are also available in Daylight Forceâ„¢ 5600K CCT White LED versions with output up to a staggering 48,000 lumens.

Other Color Force range features include a huge RGBA full color palette capable of deep cold blues and red hot lava looks in a single fixture, CRI of 92, independently controlled cells, theatrical grade dimming and an extremely smooth, uniform wash.

Also showing is the new Chroma-Q Color Chargeâ„¢, a 600 lumen, rechargeable battery powered, ultra portable LED light source which combines wireless control with an environmentally friendly NiMH battery and interchangeable head design. For more information visit

The booth will also feature a preview of the latest beta version of the V2 ‘Byron' software for the revolutionary Jands Vista lighting control range. After extensive study of user feedback, Jands have refined the best elements of the Vista as well as introducing a host of new features to make it even faster and even easier to use. Re-building the software from the ground up, the new Vista V2 ‘Byron' software is a whole new platform.

New features include really simple one button storing; fast cue list navigation; “super-search” filtering of items; powerful, perfectly synchronised effects that are simple to make; a library of matrix effects templates; ‘detail' view windows; split fade times; an easy to use, on board, fixture editor; command line interface; and visual media server control.

Vista 2 ‘Byron' takes the Vista's core idea of ‘think visually, work visually' to the next level. For more information visit
