ExtraPro Patch PlayerWhat  options do you have when managing the playback of content in multiple locations from a single source?

Patch Player, by ExtraPro LLC, is a new content playback application that lets users control content playing in various locations from a single source.  Created by developer/owner Ted Mizrahi, Patch Player promises to simplify control and setup for presentations, tradeshows and other types of multi-show environments via any Android OS device.

Chauvet Professional's Rogue Series

E-mail Print PDF

Chauvet Professional Rogue R1 SpotFor the past few years, lighting designers have been in search of a light that is an all-around workhorse — able to do almost anything they ask while still being lightweight, compact and LED-based. Rental houses want what the LDs want, too, of course — with the added requirements that the fixtures be easy to maintain, comparable to a 250W discharge fixture and — oh yeah — offered at an affordable price.

Pyro at Ultimate Music Experience 2014, South Padre Island, TX. Photo by Drew Ressler - Rukes.comHistorians believe fireworks first exploded onto the scene in seventh century China and reached widespread use during the Song Dynasty (960-1279). A new dynasty began in 1889 when Constantino Vitale founded his fireworks company in Pietramelara, Italy. In 1920, he moved his firm and family to New Castle, PA, whose official slogan would become “The Fireworks Capital of America.” In its first century, the business that would emerge as Pyrotecnico grew to become one of the country’s largest fireworks companies. It now creates many of the world’s most dazzling displays.
