Double the excitement with 2 live product launch events
You joined us live for not one, but two product launch events this year. We introduced Eos Apex, a new flagship line of Eos consoles, ColorSource V, the new and improved generation of affordable ColorSource fixtures, and Halcyon, the best-in-class family of automated framing luminaires.
9 learning opportunities from CUE 2022
In February, we hosted the global CUE conference for end users all online! Classes covered topics ranging from getting started with Augment3d to the often overlooked benefits of LED technology. If you missed this year's CUE, you can catch up on 9 of the sessions on our public YouTube playlist.
Your #1 product demo request
The brand-new Halcyon was the top-requested product demo of 2022. At its brightest, Halcyon is capable of producing more than 70,000 lumens. As for color, each Halcyon fixture has a tighter, next-generation gradient for smooth and even color, both in and out of focus, for complete linear saturation. And Halcyon features an all-new package of a dozen patterns across two wheels, delivering an expanded library of aerials, rotational effects, breakups, diffusion, and prisms. You can request a Halcyon demo here.
