Generic LED fixtures

Postby niclights » 03 Aug 2011, 10:05

In response to the large number of requests for unbranded LED Par type fixtures there are some new options in the library under the 'Generic' manufacturer.

In the vast majority of cases these fixtures all use very similar controls with small variations in the channel assignments. Furthermore there is a good chance you are only really interested in the colour mixing and intensity controls.

If you come across a suitable fixture that does not have a specific personality please try these first before making a request. Hopefully this will help minimise the number of 'Unknown' and duplicate entries.


Currently four basic types are covered:

RGB (5,6,7,8 ch)
RGBA (6,7,8,9 ch)
RGBW (6,7,8,9 ch)
RGBAW (7,8,9,10 ch)

Begin by choosing the total number of channels and type.

For example '6ch RGB'

Then look for a mode that represents the correct arrangement of the RGB (and dimmer if appropriate).

For example 'D,R,G,B,x,x' has the following mapping:
1 - Dimmer
2 - Red
3 - Green
4 - Blue
5 - 'Generic 1'
6 - 'Generic 2'

All the 'Generic' channels have a 0-255 range for full control.


Notes:

-It is assumed that the colour components will always be contiguous and in that order.
-All are available with or without dimmer.
-When there is a dimmer all possible permutations of channel offset are included.
-When there is no dimmer all the colour components will be mastered by a virtual dimmer on Titan consoles.
-Red, Green and Blue can be used with colour picker functions.
-Dimmer, Red, Green and Blue can be used with shape generator functions.
-If you have a fixture that uses RGBWA you can substitute for RGBAW.
-All channels are 8bit.
-At the moment there are only LTP versions available for Classic.


Capture:

With the introduction of the integrated Capture visualiser engine in Titan v10 some new Generic LED options have been added with associated Capture files. These can be broken down into two categories - LED Par and LED batten - and are only available for Titan.

Generic LED Pars:

Par 16 LED
Par 20 LED
Par 30 LED
Par 36 LED
Par 36 Short LED
Par 38 LED
Par 46 LED
Par 56 LED
Par 56 Short LED
Par 64 LED
Par 64 Short LED

Each type has RGB, RGBW, RGBA, RGBWA and RGBAW mode options in 8 and 16bit versions all with virtual dimmer. The 16bit modes assume the MSB (coarse) and LSB (fine) for each component are adjactent and in that order (for example 'RGB 16bit, 6 DMX' = 1-Red MSB, 2-Red LSB, 3-Green MSB, 4-Green LSB, 5-Blue MSB, 6-Blue LSB). Additionally there are 8bit options with dimmer and dimmer+shutter. The latter are appended to the colour components and are denoted in the mode name as 'I' (for dimmer) and 'Strobe' (shutter) (for example 'RGB+I+Strobe' = 1-Red, 2-Green, 3-Blue, 4-Dimmer, 5-Shutter).


For Generic LED battens the following are currently available:

2-Cell LED Batten
3-Cell LED Batten
4-Cell LED Batten
5-Cell LED Batten
6-Cell LED Batten
7-Cell LED Batten
8-Cell LED Batten
9-Cell LED Batten
10-Cell LED Batten
11-Cell LED Batten
12-Cell LED Batten

Each type has RGB, RGBW, RGBA, RGBWA and RGBAW mode options in 8 and 16bit versions all with virtual dimmer. All modes assume the colour components follow a standard order (for example Generic 2-Cell LED Batten, '2x RGB 8bit, 6 DMX' = 1-Cell 1 Red, 2-Cell 1 Green, 3-Cell 1 Blue, 4-Cell 2 Red, 5-Cell 2 Green, 6-Cell 2 Blue). Additionally, the 16bit modes assume the MSB (coarse) and LSB (fine) for each component are adjactent and in that order (for example Generic 2-Cell LED Batten, '2x RGB 16bit, 12 DMX' = 1-Cell 1 Red MSB, 2-Cell 1 Red LSB, 3-Cell 1 Green MSB, 4-Cell 1 Green LSB, 5-Cell 1 Blue MSB, 6-Cell 1 Blue LSB, 7-Cell 2 Red MSB, 8-Cell 2 Red LSB, 9-Cell 2 Green MSB, 10-Cell 2 Green LSB, 11-Cell 2 Blue MSB, 12-Cell 2 Blue LSB).
