LDI New Product: PRG GroundControl Followspot System

LDI New Product: PRG GroundControl Followspot System

The PRG GroundControl™ Followspot System allows a followspot operator to remotely operate a high output automated luminaire as a followspot from up to 2,000’ away on the ground. The system consists of three parts: a GroundControl Spot Luminaire, a GroundControl Truss Box, and a GroundControl Followspot Controller. The GC Spot Luminaire is a Bad Boy® Spot that has been modified and optimized for followspot work. The second part is a GC Truss Box, to which DMX, camera control, and video are fed to and from the fixture and where all data is converted and sent down a Mil-Spec Neutrik opticalCON QUAD fiber optic cable to the controller on the ground. The final part of the is the GC Followspot Controller, a control station that mimics the typical form factor and familiarity of a traditional followspot. The GC Controller has a monitor on a moving yoke whose movements are sent to and mimicked by the Remote Spot in the air. Any way the Controller is moved, the Remote Spot in the air will also move. There are also controls for intensity, iris, zoom, frost, and edge, as well as buttons that can be used for color and beam presets. The whole GC controller sits on an adjustable tripod. prg.com
