June 30, 2010 by Mobile Beat

SUNRISE, Fla. – CHAUVET®, a leading manufacturer of LED lighting, announces their new SparkliteLED Drape and SparkliteLED Controller . Create a twinkling night sky, a wall of strobing purple, or an expanse of glowing azure—whatever the design, the SparkliteLED Drape is a dynamic lighting solution. It’s a black fabric panel studded with LED lights which can be attached together for a fully controllable field of color or theater curtain.

Each SparkliteLED Drape measures 236 x 157.5 x 2 inches (6,000 x 4,000 x 50 millimeters), is flame retardant and holds a total of 128 (.25 W, 5mm) tri-color LEDs fitted into eight distinct and controllable zones. The drapes can be combined using integrated hook-and-loop fasteners and are as expansive as the design or coverage requires. The drape comes in its own road case and weighs less than 40 pounds (18 kg).

The SparkliteLED Drape is operated by the SparkliteLED Controller, which connects up to four drapes and is sold separately. The controller can run independently or by 12 or 24 channels of DMX control, has built-in programs or can completely control up to eight zones (16 LEDs per zone) of each drape. The controller features an LCD display, RGB color mixing control (with or without DMX control), a proprietary serial link (master/slave) and configurable color sets. Additionally, it offers configurable LED sparking direction and speed, group sparking cross fade time, and minimum and maximum luminosity. The user can configure auto programs or recall custom programs through DMX.
