Folsom Research www.folsom.com
Developed to simplify multiscreen presentation applications, theScreenPro Plus from Folsom Research allows implementation of a3-screen show from a single user interface. The operator can selectfrom up to 16 universal inputs accepting composite video, S-video,component video and computer video sources (640 × 480 VGA to1600 × 1200 UXGA). Sources are scaled to match the nativeresolution or “sweet spot” of the projection devices toensure optimal image quality. The product supports 14 differenttransition effects including dissolves, wipes, cuts and fades.Transition duration is programmable, and each screen output channelsupports two buffered “Program” outputs (one 5-wire BNCand one HD-15) and a “Preview” output (HD-15). Two to10 auxiliary outputs are provided on the rear panel of the unit,and a preset storage feature allows screen sets to be programmed toa single preset button for quick recall.

Sound, Lighting and Motion Controller
Simon-Kaloi Engineering www.skeng.com
Combining multichannel audio, control and lighting into oneproduct, the Simon-Kaloi Engineering company has developed theSLAM-2000 sound, lighting and motion controller. The SLAM-2000records and plays up to eight independent channels of CD-qualityaudio. It has a full DMX-512 interface for accepting or providingDMX lighting control, can be networked with other SLAMs (or otherproducts) via an Ethernet port, and has eight optically isolateddirect-trigger inputs. Audio and control information is alwaysperfectly synchronized and stored on nonvolatile solid-state memoryboards, so there are no tapes or hard drives to malfunction or wearout. Four memory board slots allow up to 2 GB of memory. Samplingrates can also be varied to further conserve memory, ranging from5.51 to 48.0 kHz (DAT quality). Standard audio WAVE files can beloaded into the SLAM; or you can directly record onto the SLAM inreal time from standard CDs, tapes, etc., and the SLAM will convertthe information to the standard WAVE format.

Signal Routing Matrix
LCS (Level Control Systems)
Developed to exceed the demanding requirements of liveproductions and themed entertainment, the Matrix3 offersunparalleled flexibility for solving tough dynamic audio matrixing,processing and automation requirements. Systems can be configuredfrom 8 by 8 all the way up to 400 inputs and 512 outputs with 256buses. LCS innovations like SpaceMap’s™multidimensional panning and WildTracks’™ asynchronous playback withSafetynet™ redundancy are improved. Newfeatures include matrix delays and EQs, compressors, as well asdelays and EQs on every input/output, Cobranet I/O, digital I/O andselectable gain analog I/O. When combined with the CueConsolemodular control surface, the Matrix3 mixing/processing enginebecomes a powerful FOH console for live theater and concertapplications requiring automation. The four controllers —Faders, Meters+, Transporter and Editor — are sectionalpieces of the console that can be configured in any mannerimaginable. All fader control points in the system, including LCS’s“virtual” groups, are re-mapable on a cue-by-cue basisto the 16 motorized faders on the Faders controller. As faderschange function for the next scene, the LCD display above itdisplays its new function. With this feature, less faders arerequired to mix a large number of inputs.
