FALCON Xenons Brighten Up the 42nd Annual CMA Awards

BURBANK, CA - "Country Music's Biggest Nightâ„¢" shined even brighter this year with the addition of A&O Technology's xenon FALCON luminaires. Emmy Award winning lighting designer Bob Dickinson utilized 32 FALCON 6000s, 6 FALCON 3K Beams and 6 FALCON 3K Flowers for the television special which aired live from Nashville November 12, 2008 on The ABC Television Network.

The FALCON 6000â„¢ uses the very latest xenon technology and upgraded optics. The light is an indoor/outdoor, DMX controlled, xenon fixture equipped with douser, pan-and-tilt movement, electronic and mechanical dimmer, electronic and mechanical strobe, zoom and integrated electronic power supply. The FALCON 6000 includes a CMY+1 color changer and extra scrolls for special effects. The CMY color changer system allows for hundreds of brilliant color combinations. A fourth gel string is equipped with special colors, and/or other special effect films.

The FALCON Beamâ„¢, available in 3K to 8K for both indoor and outdoor applications, is the brightest, most reliable xenon source of its size and is specifically designed for both floor-mounted and suspended/inverted use. The FALCON Beam easily converts into a multiple-beam FALCON Flowerâ„¢. With the Flower option, either effect can be achieved using the same fixture body.
