Avolites Celebrates 45 Years of Business at PLASA Show 2021

Avolites celebrates 45th anniversary of producing inspired creative visual control solutions.

Avolites heads to London Olympia’s PLASA Show (Stand: D17) celebrating 45 years in business.

From humble beginnings underneath a Hammersmith railway arch in 1976, the company has been at the cutting edge of most of the major developments in the lighting sector in the decades since. From the first programmable consoles designed to control the then-new intelligent lighting arrays of the 1990s, to the rise of the media server, the virtualised console, and the blending of lights and video into a single visual canvas, the company’s products have been instrumental in the success of some of the biggest events in history.

As the industry starts to recover from the impact of COVID-19, the latest generation Avolites technology is being used on some of the largest tours, stages, festivals, corporate events and cutting edge installs around the world.

At this year’s PLASA Show, Avolites will be highlighting the power of its new flagship Diamond 9 console, which features vast screen real-estate, all-new controls, and unique media integration that intuitively combines the control of all visual aspects of a show.

Alongside the Diamond 9 console, Avolites will preview latest versions of Q3 – a media server that unlocks 4K playback through a single DisplayPort 1.2 connection – as well as the ability of the Titan Net Processor’s networked DMX processing to act as the hub of expanded lighting installations. Including an exploration into how the optical Titan Net Switch can connect FOH to stage over large distances.
