CAST Brings New Products and Seminars to PLASA Focus Stamford

CAST is pulling out all the stops for PLASA Focus Stamford with not one, but four new products, plus an educational seminar. PLASA Focus will be held 12-13 November at the Stamford Marriott in Stamford, Connecticut, only 40 minutes from New York City and serving the New York/Tri-state area. CAST will be exhibiting in Booth 121 and will demonstrate their newest products, BlackTrax, wysiwyg R29, Vivien 2012 and Vivien Online.

While you plan your visit, be sure to schedule time with Jim Hutchison, Product Manager wysiwyg and Vivien, for the insightful seminar entitled, “The Birth, Childhood, and Apparent Adolescence of Lighting Design Technology” presented by CAST Group as part of the PLASA Focus Professional Development Program. The seminar will be held on Monday, 12 November from 1:30-2:30pm and again on Tuesday, 13 November from 12:30-1:30pm in the Massachusetts Room.

Jim’s session will take a running leap through the last 75 years or so of Lighting Design technology, from its birth with paper and pencil through the ability to previsualize your entire lighting design with the touch of a finger - what Jim considers "the adolescence” of lighting design technology. This hour-long incursion will take the audience along the child life cycle that is technology for designing and visualizing light. Jim has a few surprises planned, so be sure to sign up. All sessions are FREE to attend!

After the seminar, visit CAST in Booth 121 to see the latest developments in all of their products. The big buzz this year has been around BlackTrax V1, first winning a prestigious “Game Changer” Award at NAB 2012, and then nabbing the only Gold Innovation Award at PLASA 2012. CAST has already WOWED the crowds at PLASA and LDI and is ready to bring this revolutionary technology to Stamford. BlackTrax is a triple win → Creativity + Artistry + Technology. This is the kind of technology you don’t just need to read about – you need to experience it!
