Opening of Maastricht's carnival season

True to tradition, the start of Maastricht's carnival season was celebrated on 11 November at an event on Vrijthof square that attracted more than 20,000 visitors. Xymio Event Techniek supplied the technology used onstage, using 140 Pixelmesh P12.5 Tours and other units, 22 metres of Active Sunstrip, and 32 Octostrips. But it doesn't end there: the stage was also equipped with 20 Infinity iW-1915 Washes.

Software update V1.05 Infinity Chimp

Highlite International B.V Tim Dautzenberg
Software version 1.05 for the Infinity Chimp has been available since the start of November. The most important update to this version is ‘move in black’. With this function, the table already looks at the next cue and places the moving heads into the next position as soon as the dimmer is closed. This ensures that there is no spillover in the image of the next cue. Visit the forum for all changes and bugfixes! Visit the forum
