Rumor Confirmed: ADB Lighting to Preview New Desk at ProLight + Sound

ADB Lighting out of Belgium is preparing to preview a “new generation control desk” as ProLight + Sound next week in Frankfurt Germany. ADB will be showing of a prototype of their multi-modal lighting and video flagship desk codenamed HATHOR.

So what makes this new desk so revolutionary? Here is what little ADB is saying about the desk thus far.

Advanced features include a graphics based user interface with support for up to eight multi-touch screens, advanced luminaire and fixture tracking facilities, state of the art lighting cue transfer control, flexible user configuration and customization, and unlimited capacity and full scalability.

The new controller is a professional theatre and television studio ‘concept’ desk that will be the flagship of the ADB lighting controller range, integrating control of conventional luminaires, moving lights, matrixes, LED, video and architectural control embracing all available protocols.

Looks like ADB is holding this one close as they are not even releasing a photo of the concept desk.  If you are attending ProLight + Sound next week, make sure to stop by the ADB Lighting stand at B36, Hall 11.1.  Maybe by that time, ADB will update their web site, with more information.
