FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CAN I INSTALL EDGELIGHT RGB WITHOUT A TECHNICIAN?
Most of our clients have opted for a dry hire rental scenario without the need for a technician. We ensure the data rack(s) are properly configured and addressed per the client's specifications. We provide detailed drawings of the fixture installation layout and cable paths. All cables are labeled and loomed if necessary based on your particular installation. The process for the end user is then quite simple. If a project is particularly complicated, has an overly aggressive installation schedule or a client simply does not want to handle the installation of the product, we will be happy to supply a technician for you.
HOW COMPLICATED IS THE INTERFACE WITH THE LIGHTING DESK?
One of the really great features of this product is how simple it is to integrate into existing lighting packages. The product runs as a standard 16 bit RGB profile (6 DMX channels) per output. Each rack contains 16 potential outputs each driving up to 8m of product and we will coordinate with your lighting director and/or programmer to ensure that the rack is properly configured prior to arrival. Therefore, all the end user needs to provide is two 120v Edison U-Ground 15 amp circuits, a 5-pin DMX connection and a patch sheet.
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE THE VELCRO REQUIRED TO INSTALL THE PRODUCT?
Typically, we will provide as many 25 yard rolls of Velcro as necessary as an expendable line item in your quote. This fits with our "plug and play" model for the service. If you prefer to provide your own, please let us know. You will need 1" loop Velcro. Depending on deck surfaces, it may be necessary to lay down a strip of gaffer's tape prior to installing adhesive Velcro to avoid damage.
HOW ARE THE UNITS PACKAGED?
We utilize custom road cases that are 50" x 30" x 36" tall. Cases can hold 36 to 42 1.2m units depending on if there is a need to store cabling in top of the trunk or not. For smaller rentals, we utilize Pelican iM3300 cases to reduce weight and size. We have even had clients fly these cases as excess baggage for projects.
CAN I PURCHASE EDGELIGHT RGB PRODUCTS?
Currently we are only marketing this product as a rental solution. Our goal is to provide you with a quality "plug & play" lighting/scenic solution with a minimal amount of effort for the end user. Truly, the complete package nature of our rentals has become the most attractive aspect for our clients. The rental cost is generally low enough to make the rental scenario quite attractive for most users.
IS EDGELIGHT RGB PIXEL MAPPABLE?
In a word, no. With an eye toward creating a truly "plug and play", modular and cost-effective solution to the common request for outlining staging and scenic elements, this product is RGB only. Since products like this are typically brought in late in the production schedule for many events, we felt it important to create something that will interface into existing designs seamlessly without requiring a technician to determine how to map a product with which he or she may not be familiar. Truly, this product plugs in and is ready to go as quickly as the console can be patched.
CAN EDGELIGHT RGB BE TRUSS MOUNTED?
We have developed a custom truss mount solution for Edgelight. We included all the features that designers and technicians would need for a quick and dependable installation and strike process. We use lightweight trigger clamps for ease of installation and strike. The clamps slide in an extruded track to allow for accurate positioning around truss lacing members. We included stand-offs on the clamps so that the Edgelight fixtures can install on the same truss chord as any of your other lighting fixtures, and, of course, there is an integrated safety cable. The truss mount fixtures are packaged in the same trunks as our floor fixtures. We have had thousands of feet of truss mounted product on national and international tours over the past two years.
