ETC Sensor-level technology in a portable dimmer pack. The SmartPack line of portable dimmer packs is designed to provide thyristor-based, professional-quality dimming in a rugged 19-inch 2U rack-mount package. Available with twelve 2.3kW dimmers, six 3kW dimmers, or three 5kW dimmers, SmartPack is the simple-to-use lighting-control solution for small theatres or roadshow applications, bands, DJs, dance clubs, nightclub acts, and school and house-of-worship programs.
SmartPack is DMX512A-compatible, RDM-ready and a whole lot more. With the built-in presets and sequencer, SmartPack can run on its own for permanent displays and presentations without a console. The sequencer makes it easy to program sophisticated fade- and wait-times directly from the facepanel. Once programmed, the Auto-Restart option allows for completely unattended operation day after day. With a wide range of output panels available and multi-language capability as standard, SmartPack is ready to travel.
Ready for anything. SmartPack was designed from the outside in. The all-steel rugged case passes the US Transport road test and tolerates extreme vibration - up to 30g. The attractive front panel protects the circuit breakers from cables and accidental switches. Internal construction simplifies manufacturing and service. Integrated into a single high-performance plug-in power block, the thyristors are replaceable in minutes without soldering. Just remove the screws and open the top panel and you have access to all components. Units are easily changed from three-phase to single-phase operation as needed.
Packed with ETC dimming performance and reliability Maximum density available for minimum cost Built-in Presets (32) and sequencer for stand alone operation True thyristor reliability based on Sensor technology All magnetic circuit breakers, fully rated DMX512A Compatible Wide Range of output options
Sweetlight Software The software contains several programs: dmx addressing, light scenes creation, live show, timeline show, 3D rendering, ... ControlBoard is a control panel from where you can run all these different programs. Click the program icon to start it.
Declare your lighting equipment in Setup. The library contains personality files (colors, gobos, ...) for the most common fixtures (mirror lights, moving heads, color changer, strobes, power units, ...). This library is regularly updated on our site in order to stay current with new fixture releases. If the light you are using is not included, it is easy to add and configure new ones.
With Editor, create dynamic scenes. The screen manages: pan/tilt movements colors, gobos, ... trychromie time and fade mode fixtures grouping ... The screen looks similar to a "regular lighting desk", with advanced functions like copy, paste, insert, ...
In Generator, in a few mouse clicks, build complex lighting scenes, with pan&tilt movements and color (gobo, ...) effects, for a group of moving lights, with fanning effect.
With Live, play the show in live. Live is customizable, depending of your needs (pages, buttons, presets). A button can trigger a light scene, a multimedia file, or a timeline. The screen can be locked by with a password. It is also possible to change any channels from Editor, while Live plays the show.
Timeline is a synchronized multimedia show editing software. It is able to play multiple file formats (video, picture, audio and light scenes). Drop the files into the timelines and slide them in the desired time. The possible applications are: basic "sound and light". The readable audio files are wav, mp3, ogg and wma format. "video and light" on plasma screen or video projector. The readable picture files are bmp, jpg, png, giff. The readable video files are avi, mpg, mpeg, mov, wmv.
3DView display the stage in 3 dimensions and it shows the lights moving in real time, from any point of view. Set stage size. The program has a bank of basic objects (speakers, truss, music instruments, ...). You can also import your own objects. Set position (orientation, scale, color) of each object (or fixture). It is possible to set these parameters on a group of objects. Set textures, luminosity, smoke level for more realism.
For total security, the interface can operate lights in stand-alone mode. From StandAlone, download dynamic scenes into the interface. Depending on the model, it is possible to store from 1 to 14 dynamic scenes for later recall without the need of a computer. The scenes can be swapped or added together. This system is not only ideal for backup during big shows, but also to run stand alone installations where simple use is important, like exhibitions and architectural lighting, ...
THE INTERFACES When linked to the computer, the interfaces do the same job. The major differences concern the stand-alone using (without computer). - if you want to always play the show with the computer, and you have only a few lights, the interface "Cable" should be the best choice - if you want to always play the show with the computer, and you have a lot of lights, the interface "D512" should be the best choice - if you want to always play the show with the computer, and you want to use a dmx lighting desk together with our software, the interface "Box" should be the best choice - if you want the interface plays the show without computer, and you want to trigger the scenes with a remote controller, the interface "Remote" should be the best choice - if you want the interface plays the show without computer, and you want to trigger the scenes with buttons, the interface "SSA" should be the best choice
