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 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.3 fixtures on a fixture network.
This patent-pending feature enables multiple DL.2 and DL.3 units to create seamless vertical, horizontal or central panoramic media projections controlled from a lighting console. Using multiple digital lighting 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.3 represents the fourth generation of digital lighting products from High End Systems Inc. and is the flag ship addition to the product line, which includes the Orbital Head, Axon Media Server and DL.2 digital light.
