Martin Professional currently has
some of the hottest products on the market, including the Mac 301 and
101 LED moving heads which have become a staple around here at 4Wall.
With all of the buzz about these new fixtures and others about to be
introduced, we were very happy to hear that the Martin “Engineered for
the Eye” Road Show was hitting 4Wall Las Vegas on April 12th!
In addition to showing off their latest and greatest, the event will
also feature a full BBQ and drinks (read:beer), so it’s the perfect way
to get away from the NAB show floor if you are in town for the
Fixtures on display will include the Mac 350 Entour, Mac III
Performance, Mac 401 Dual, Mac 250 Beam, Mac 700 Profile, and many more.

As many of you are aware, 4Wall Entertainment acquired BSL
Productions in January and launched 4Wall DC. On September 30th, in the
midst of pouring rain, the best and the brightest of the industry
gathered together to celebrate the official Grand Opening of 4Wall DC.
The night saw 20+ vendor’s from all over the lighting spectrum
exhibiting and meeting with customers. There were even several product
First up on the list was ETC with reps Nick Gonsman & Pete
Wiengand accompanied by Mandy from AKT3. They debuted the brand new,
first off the line Selador Pearl. The Pearl completes the Selador line
offering a counterpoint to the x7 color mixing system. The first
white-only Selador, the Pearl features both high Kelvin white led’s and
amber led’s so you can mix any temperature of white needed. ETC was
also kind enough to preview the Alpha release of EOS OS 1.9.5. I have
two words for you: Pixel Mapping!
Next up was Jason and Brian from ACT Lighting with the very sexy
grandMA 2 series of control consoles. This console looks hot! The MA2
expands on the capabilities of the original grandMA line with larger,
motorized tilt, built in touch screens and a multi-touch parameter
screen. There are also more on-board faders and the full size keyboard
is hidden under a slide out panel on the armrest. All in all its an
Right around the corner was Joe Goldsmith of X-laser with their new
Sapphire series of blue lasers and several of their stock lasers. A
very nice show! Exhibiting with X-laser and Leprecon was Elation and a
sample video wall. Let me tell you, it was blinding.
The next stop brought us to J.C. Moore from City Theatrical and the
brand new PSD-750TRX Color Blast power supply. CTI’s outdone themselves
on this one. The unit features DMX input, ARTnet, sACN, Wireless DMX,
and the kitchen sink (kidding, it wouldn’t fit). The next generation of
CK power supplies has arrived.
Hiding away in his burn-your-eyes-out fluorescent yellow shirt was
Steve Shelley from Field Templates. Steve is the renowned author behind
A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting and was kind enough to autograph a few copies for our door prizes. Thank you Steve!
Possibly the most interesting new item on display was from Prism
Projection. The soon to be released RevEAL LED Studio Fresnel. Using
the same tech as the RevEAL CW, the fresnel is an excellent addition to
their line. For more info, please see iSquint.net’s review of the unit.
last of the brand new products on display was a prototype follow spot
from Lycian. The unit featured a fast fit halogen lamp, 3250K color
temperature, medium to long throw, and an internal auto-sensing power
supply (that way you don’t have to change the lamp for voltage). Steve
Lerman from Lycian is predicting that the unit should be available late
this year or early next.
out the event was a massive garage sale from our web site
UsedLighting.com. Items were flying out the door at bargain basement
pricing. A big thank you to Matt Filmeck and Mike Mancuso for heading
up the garage sale and making it a success! We’d also like to thank
Rich Dale and Apollo for the fantastic UsedLighting.com custom gobo!
Most of all we’d like to thank all of our customers that made it out, even in the driving rain, to celebrate with us. Without your support there would be no us. For that we are grateful.
The time has come. We’re breaking down the 4th wall (sorry, couldn’t resist) and launching this blog thing:
