GLP Ignition Truss Toner System

GLP Ignition Truss Toner System

GLP or German Light Products debuted a new truss toner system at LDI this year. It has quite a few things going for it- relatively light weight, 5 pin data and Powercon pass through, great color rendering, and pretty bright based on the number of LEDs it has.

The Video Equipment Rental Booth at LDI 2010

Some of the most amazing booths at LDI 2010 were the simplest ones.  Case in point, the Video Equipment Rental or VER Booth.  They didn’t have a big fancy booth with moving lights dancing all around the booth or lasers running across the entire show floor.  They had a modest 20×20 booth with dancing circles […]
