Leading UK rental and production specialist Adlib’s lighting department has invested in eight new Zero 88 FLX S24 consoles.
Simon Pettitt, lighting technical manager at the busy Liverpool headquartered company, and his team made the decision after becoming aware of the console and realising its massive potential as a cost-effective control package for small-to-medium shows, events and installations.
Typically, Adlib envisions using these consoles - offering optimised control for up to 48 x LED sources, moving lights and conventionals - on a wide range of smaller corporate events, smaller / alternative festival stages, house of worship events and dry hires to schools and colleges.
Simon commented that FLX S24 uses a “familiar workflow” for programming fixtures in a small package at an “excellent price point”, so they can use them on events utilising moving lights as opposed to just static LED fixtures, “which wasn’t easy before without taking a larger desk out of rental stock”.
Directly related to that, he continues, is the speed and ease of which FLX S24 can be powered-on, patched and programmed. He feels that the encoders, combined with the familiar touchscreen pallet grid, are a key enabling factor for sending it out on projects to control fixtures with pan / tilt functionality.
