G-LEC Shows Walk-Through LED System at PLASA
Following its launch earlier this year at ProLight+Sound in Frankfurt, the Tube from G-LEC takes LED lighting into a new dimension, with the launch of the first walk-through LED system. The Tube follows the same principles as the company’s highly acclaimed transparent LED frame systems - but without the frame.
Each individual transparent tube hangs free, similar to a slash or beaded curtain. With the ability to create a host of different 3D shapes, such as circles, cubes and even a deep ‘forest’ of LEDs, plus the facility to use differing lengths of tube, the Tube brings enormous potential to lighting and set designers. Like the G-LEC Classic and the PhantomFrame systems, the G-LEC Tube is transparent to light, audio and wind - and now even the performers!
The G-LEC Tube can be constructed in different lengths, from 20cm up to 6m, in 20cm increments with no limit on the width of the system. Such flexibility enables the Tube to be adapted to any shape or configuration, enabling stunning, large scale LED graphics with video capacity to be displayed on many different surfaces, including interior and exterior building features. New, powerful control software provides the capability of graphics on up to four planes, from any DMX512, MIDI or SMPTE source as well as standard video input. Graphics are fast and smooth, creating movement and excitement on a set.
Quick to assemble, the G-LEC Tube is ideal for touring and one-off productions, such as award ceremonies and concerts, and because it is so lightweight, can be hung or flown without requiring reinforcement. With its infinite possibilities, the G-LEC Tube is also perfect for installations: visitors can walk through a maze of LEDs to become part of the matrix.
The ultra bright RGB pixels on the G-LEC Tube are set at 50mm pitch, and the pcb connection is short enough that individual tubes can be curved to radius of 75cm, so a single tube can be curved round a set or object.
If you thought the G-LEC frame system was versatile, the Tube will make you think again.
