As a result, there was little to no need for any other lighting to be included in the design.

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
