DL.2 Digital Light

(out of production)

DL.2 integrates a media server loaded with a wealth of digital content with a high output 3-chip light engine, a highly sensitive HAD sensor camera and an infrared illumination system. DL.2 mounts like any other intelligent moving luminaire and controls just as easily with plug-and-play operation 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.2 fixtures on a fixture network.

New Collage™ software feature for DL.2: Collage Generator™

This patent-pending feature enables multiple DL.2 units to create seamless vertical, horizontal or central panoramic media projections controlled from a lighting console. Using multiple DL.2 fixtures allow you to increase effective screen luminance.


High End Systems not only started the digital revolution, it also offers the widest digital lighting product mix of any manufacturer, priced and scaled for any budget and solution. The DL.2 represents the third generation of digital lighting products from High End Systems Inc.

System

  • DL.2 software based on Windows XP and DirectX technology
  • Powerful Content Management and Configuration software can remotely manage multiple DL.2 fixtures
  • Integrated Sony camera with Super HAD image sensor technology and infrared illuminator provides live video input and output from fixture location.

  • DMX512 and Art-Net support
  • Remote software upgrade capability
  • Royalty-free stock digital art collection featuring more than 1,000 lighting-optimized files
  • RGBHV and S-Video connections accept a wide range of media device inputs

Graphics Engine

  • Simultaneous playback of three discrete media streams on separate 2D/3D objects
  • 30 object parameters give you graphic controls for each individual media stream including:
    • a choice of multiple play modes and play speeds
    • the ability to define any segment of a video loop including Scrub capability
    • multiple color mixing and visual effects that can be combined any way you choose
    • variable opacity to allow for crossfading or dissolves between media streams
    • full control of image rotation, positioning and scaling on X,Y and Z axes
    • visual modes that let you control brightness and contrast to optimize content
    • video input or camera capture you can apply to 2D/3D objects
  • 35 global parameters provide graphic controls to the composite image created by up to 3 media streams
    • intensity overlays the opacity control to provide system-wide intensity level
    • overall image color mixing applied to composite media stream image
    • color effects including edge colors allow for combined image color mixing
    • multiple mask selections with edge fading and strobe effects
    • Chromakey effects to layer any content by keying on any colormix to make transparent
    • edge fading for creating montages
    • keystone correction on output projection
    • viewpoint controls provide ability to change viewing angle/perspective on images
  • Multiple modes for synchronizing all networked DL.2 fixtures

Content Management Application (CMA)

  • Windows Compatible
  • Communicates with DL.2 fixtures over an Ethernet network
  • Uploads and downloads custom digital content to DL.2 fixtures
  • Configures DL.2 fixtures with remote control of all menu commands
  • Software now runs on Mac and PC

Collage Generator™

Create a horizontal, vertical or central panorama using a selectable array of fixtures and manipulate it as if it were a single fixture. As an example, the user could link 4 DL.2s to create one Central Panorama that offers a screen luminance of 20K lumens. With the call of the next cue, the user could change that configuration using the same DL.2s. No need to spend time and labor on balancing projector white balances and aligning pixels to pixels. Most panoramas can be set up during preproduction in under 25 minutes.
