wastage is such a benefit as it allows for inefficiencies to be monitored and ironed out. This was the idea behind the Polaris 3D from Encelium. This is a web-based software application for use with their Energy Control System, and allows users to analyse and update lighting needs. The lighting software, which was unveiled at Lightfair International held earlier this year in Philadelphia, is available from this month. The software offers a 360°, three-dimensional navigation in a multi-floor view, which allows for easy navigation to a desired control zone, and gives the user the ability to see an entire facility in a useful 3D snapshot. "Polaris 3D is a unique lighting innovation with tremendous capabilities," explains Terry Mocherniak, chief operating officer of Encelium Technologies. "Users will no

longer need to navigate through single floors, or a 'tree architecture,' to control lighting in their facility. Instead, they now have all of the key data at a glance, enabling them to optimize energy savings and improve occupant comfort and productivity with ease.”


Using Windows Silverlight technology, Polaris 3D will be available via a simple web browser, eliminating the need for installation, increasing security and start up time. The system also provides a coloured thermo-graphic representation of system parameters for lighting status, power consumption, light levels, occupancy status and comparative energy trends. "As a result, users will be able to identify lighting related inefficiency trends or operational anomalies anywhere in the facility," continues Mocherniak. "Such


non-lighting parameters as temperature, CO2 levels, and air quality can also be represented in this thermo-graphic view, if the system is integrated with a building automation system." For a theatre environment, the needs of a control system are very different. UK based ETC has recently introduced Gio to its range of control desks. Positioned in the middle of the popular Eos range, between the Eos and the Ion desks, Gio features the family’s powerful hardware and software for sophisticated effects – like pixel mapping and media server control – as well as the instantly recognisable ETC syntax. The controls are simple, meaning that even novices will find them easy to get to grips with.


Not just lightweight and portable, Gio introduces new technologies to the Eos
