I had a chance to stop by the Cooper Controls booth at the LDI booth and talk with Grant Bales-Smith, the Sales Manager for Zero88. Grant gave me a quick overview of their latest lighting desk, the ORB consoles. The 2048 DMX control channels offered by the Orb allows users to control multiple LED fittings, intelligent lights or media servers controlling video, as well as the standard generic dimming systems common to theatres and television. All of these devices are programmed through intuitive user interfaces incorporating custom designed encoder wheels, multiple playback stacks, user definable keys and optional touch screens.
