The DL.3 Digital Light integrates a media server loaded with a wealth of digital content with a high output 4-chip light engine, a highly sensitive HAD sensor camera and an infrared illumination system. DL.3 mounts like any other intelligent moving luminaire and controls just as easily with plug-and-play Opera
tion using standard DMX cabling and protocols. Production set-up time is reduced as there is no need for RGB cabling, and racks of servers are no longer necessary at front-of-house or backstage area.
A Content Management Application running on your MAC or PC workstation or laptop computer gives you Remote Control
of uploading and crossloading content, upgrading software and fixture configuration for multiple DL.3 fixtures on a fixture network.

Used Intelligent Lighting Projectors
Intelligent projectors are a special type of lighting equipment used in theatre and concerts, which are used to project a beam of light onto a specific location on the stage. Intelligent projectors, also called moving head projectors, and a unique kind of digital lighting‚?? they have no actual lens, and so the spread of the light beam is always very narrow.
Moving digital luminaires such as these intelligent projectors are very popular with lighting technicians, as the narrow beam of light allows them to define a very small portion of the stage, while leaving the rest of the performance area in darkness. This effect is referred to as a ‚??godspot effect‚?Ě. They are often combined with special effects such as fog or haze in order to create very atmospheric conditions on the stage.
Intelligent projectors use two reflectors ‚?? a parabolic reflector for organizing the light into beams that are virtually parallel, and a spherical reflector at the front of the digital lighting, which reflects the light beam onto the parabolic reflector, thus lessening the amount of spill.
This design results in intelligent projectors producing an extremely intense and very narrow light beam, which is neither easily modified or controlled.
