i.NOVA 380 Sound System At The Porsche Iftar Tent

Le Mer is the popular restaurant situated right in front of the ocean at Muscat’s no.1 hot-spot Qurm Beach and so the perfect place for an Iftar gathering and Porsche of Oman have erected a tent in the restaurant’s grounds for the celebrations.

Bright Lights Trading is providing the AV equipment and a sound engineer for the evenings’ entertainment during the month of Ramadan.

Novacoustic’s iNova 380’s were installed for this small, prestigious event. Each night the tent has been packed to full capacity of 80 persons so this mobile sound-reinforcement system, with its small dimensions and low weight, has proved to be the ideal choice.

The iNova 380’s are super-compact and extremely light-weighted with a high reach, excellent speech reproduction and great sound-quality without any compromise.

The i.NOVA 380 system is the ideal solution for entertainers, mobile DJ´s, bands and other applications of mobile sound-reinforcement systems with its smallest dimensions and lowest weight.

The self-powered IN 315 SUB subwoofer includes three powerful 2 x 440 W + 1 x 1.000 W digital amplifiers. The subwoofer offers connectors for two IN 8 column speakers and for the optionally available passive IN 15 SUB P subwoofer. The extremely powerful bass reproduction down to 34 Hz is absolutely amazing. The integrated high-tech DSP is the command center of the i.NOVA 380 system. It controls all safety circuits, limiters and numerous other functions. The 32-Bit DSP allows the storage of 20 sound-programs. Following programs are pre-installed: LINEAR, ENTERTAIN, ROCK, DJ, VOICE. The programs can be easily loaded and edited directly at subwoofers user-panel.

The i.NOVA 380 covers an audience of up to 400 people.

Due to the acoustical coupling of i.NOVAs special 3″ neodym-transducers and the advanced NOVA line-array technology (waveguide with ribbon high-driver), i.NOVA systems enable a vertical coverage of 25°. This results in more direct sound, less reflections from ceiling / ground-floor and less diffuse sound. i.NOVA systems deliver a regularly sound reinforcement along the whole audience and much better intelligibility of speech.

Installation in only 2 minutes.

The   i.Nova systems can be installed, adjusted and are ready for work in only 2 minutes.

► Compact dimensions, low weight. A new generation of speaker components and digital amplifier   devices enables a totally new solution concerning dimensions and weight.

► High ergonomics. Due to the newly-designed grip handle, optimally adjusted hardware   and perfect accessories like bags and covers, the transport of i.Nova systems can be performed in a convenient way, also   for preventing damage from your back.

► Elegant design, slim dimensions. No matter if on stage or as a fix-installed system in an architecturally   well designed surrounding – i.Nova systems have an unobstructive   lookout and do always fit.

► Plug & Play. Linking three connectors – and your i.Nova system is ready to run,   enabled by DSP and the digital amplifiers with perfectly balanced sound presets – both located in the subwoofer.

Clay Paky New Product – Glow Up

GlowUp is a portable, battery-powered luminaire that removes the logistical headache of running cables at events – dramatically reducing set-up time, while saving money and improving safety.

Based on durable, high-power LEDs, GlowUp offers years of energy-efficient service. Power is stored in a rechargeable lithium battery, a tried and tested technology found in many portable consumer devices such as mobile phones. The battery is lightweight making the fixture easy to carry and can be recharged 2000 times without suffering from ‘memory’ or capacity loss.

GlowUp is fully programmable allowing users to select scenes from a library containing dozens of suggested colors as well as a number of pre-programmed, color-changing sequences.

The battery eliminates the need for mains power, and each fixture can be programmed without needing to use cables. Each fixture has a wireless onboard data receiver, so several fixtures can be synchronized at once wirelessly. For those that prefer, GlowUp can also be cable-connected to the grid and programmed using standard DMX cables.

3 GlowUp versions are available: GLOW-UP “C” (RGBW); GLOW-UP “TW” (Tuneable White); GLOW-UP “W” (White). Body colors available: chromed-plated, white, black.
