The Azure Shadow console is a variation of the highly popular Azure 2000 which has enjoyed success in a variety of applications, particularly clubs and time-coded environments. The Azure Shadow features all the facilities offered by the Azure Touch Panel (the original Azure) with the additional functionality of the 'Schadow switch' live playback buttons that have always been integral to Avolites' consoles. Avolites have listened to customer feedback which revealed that some users would prefer the conventional Schadow switch rock 'n' roll buttons as opposed to the waterproof membrane of he Azure Shadow. For theatre users, the Azure Shadow incorporates a new suite of theatrical programming functions. The new console design also allows the specific labelling of these theatre plotting facilities on the front panel. (This suite of functions first appeared in the Sapphire 2000 and is being introduced across the console range.) The small but immensely powerful and highly cost-effective Azure Shadow can control a mixture of up to 200 intelligent fixtures and 200 dimmer channels over its 4 DMX lines giving 2048 DMX channels. It can run 20 separate Sequences of Environments simultaneously and has 50 direct access memories and chases per page with 10 labelled playback pages. The console offers simultaneous control of 200 mixed intelligent fixtures and 200 dimmer control channels. It also has the power to run 20 separate Sequences or Environments at the same time! Unique features include 50 Direct Access memories and chases per page with 10 labelled pages, making it ideal for multi-operator situations. Chases may be run from multi-frequency sound-to-light triggers and timed overrides, programmed times or the 'Learn Tempo' function. Learn Tempo allows synchronisation of chases to the current beat by tapping the tempo button and thus entering the beat into the desk. To assist programming there is a pre-loaded Attribute Palette with up to 200 entries, giving instant access to all possible colours, gobos, beam effects and positions. The Palette may be applied to individual fixtures or to any of the 200 available groups. This enables the operator to build complex sequences and looks with remarkable ease. Further to aid programming of complicated sequences there are 200 pre-loaded moving light 'shapes'. These include complex waves, fans, ballyhoo's, shutter and iris sequences. New shapes and patterns can easily be created using the revolutionary Avolites Shape Generator. There are several standard features that would normally only be found on consoles costing many times more; these include Align, Flip, Fan and full 3D tracking. Further value is added by the 3½ inch Floppy Disk Drive and the Colour VGA Monitor Output - which are both fitted as standard. In addition to the 500 memories or chases, the Azure Shadow includes 20 Environment programmes. Each of these may contain multiple sequences, running from different sound-to-light inputs as well as static memories and environmental control (e.g. neon, house lights, bar lights, etc.). The Environment programmes may be controlled from the internal clock, internal Time Scheduler or an external time code input. In keeping with the Avolites tradition of "hands on" rock 'n' roll control, the Azure Shadow is fitted with 10 submaster Playback Faders and two ultra-smooth metal shaft Optical Encoders. The familiar Avolites attribute 'Banking' system gives instant access to all moving light parameters at the touch of a button. The encoders, working in conjunction with the attribute banks allow immediate control override of any fixture parameter. The encoders or Graphic Tablet also enables full three dimensional pan/tilt tracking of moving light beams. To ensure the Azure Shadow is particularly applicable to theatre productions, several pertinent functions are included to fine-tune the console for theatre use. These are 'Record Live', 'Live Time', 'Next Time', 'Review Cue' and 'Jump To (Cue Number)'. A number of different configurations are available to suit your particular requirement. The standard console is designed to drop into a 19 inch rack system or control booth counter top. The console can also be configured for stand-alone use, complete with ergonomic armrest and surround. Alternatively, the Azure Shadow can be supplied as a fully flight-cased Control System with integral Graphic Tablet and remote control. Azure Shadow can also be used in conjunction with the award winning Graphics Tablet and Avolites Stager Visualizer to produce an unrivaled control system.

DESCRIPTION

The Azure Shadow console is a variation of the highly popular Azure
2000 which has enjoyed success in a variety of applications,
particularly clubs and time-coded environments.
The Azure Shadow
features all the facilities offered by the Azure Touch Panel (the
original Azure) with the additional functionality of the ‘Schadow
switch’ live playback buttons that have always been integral to
Avolites’ consoles.
Avolites have listened to customer feedback which
revealed that some users would prefer the conventional Schadow switch
rock ‘n’ roll buttons as opposed to the waterproof membrane of he
Azure Shadow. For theatre users, the Azure Shadow incorporates a new
suite of theatrical programming functions. The new console design also
allows the specific labelling of these theatre plotting facilities on
the front panel. (This suite of functions first appeared in the
Sapphire 2000 and is being introduced across the console range.)
The
small but immensely powerful and highly cost-effective Azure Shadow
can control a mixture of up to 200 intelligent fixtures and 200 dimmer
channels over its 4 DMX lines giving 2048 DMX channels. It can run 20
separate Sequences of Environments simultaneously and has 50 direct
access memories and chases per page with 10 labelled playback pages.
The console offers simultaneous control of 200 mixed intelligent
fixtures and 200 dimmer control channels. It also has the power to run
20 separate Sequences or Environments at the same time!
Unique
features include 50 Direct Access memories and chases per page with 10
labelled pages, making it ideal for multi-operator situations. Chases
may be run from multi-frequency sound-to-light triggers and timed
overrides, programmed times or the ‘Learn Tempo’ function. Learn Tempo
allows synchronisation of chases to the current beat by tapping the
tempo button and thus entering the beat into the desk.
To assist
programming there is a pre-loaded Attribute Palette with up to 200
entries, giving instant access to all possible colours, gobos, beam
effects and positions. The Palette may be applied to individual
fixtures or to any of the 200 available groups. This enables the

Further to aid programming of complicated sequences there are 200
pre-loaded moving light ‘shapes’. These include complex waves, fans,

well as static memories and environmental control (e.g. neon, house
lights, bar lights, etc.). The Environment programmes may be
controlled from the internal clock, internal Time Scheduler or an
external time code input.
