High End’s Pixellage Software


High End Systems and Barco have released some software called Pixellage – the software allows the user/designer/programmer to apply an image across several of High End’s pixel luminaires, like ShowPix and StudioPix.

From the press release:

Barco, a global leader in video and lighting solutions, today announces the release of Pixellage, a new software feature for two High End Systems Pixelation Luminaires. This feature allows the SHOWPIX and StudioPix luminaires to display one image across multiple fixtures, providing an eye-catching stage presence, especially on television and for outdoor daytime events. The SHOWPIX and StudioPix luminaires are hybrid LED wash lights and graphic image display fixtures.

When Pixellage is used in conjunction with the latest version of High End Systems’ Echo software, users can easily divide a single piece of content into discrete files and assign each portion to different fixtures for output. This interactive process uses templates, alignment tools and media manipulation functions to provide lighting professionals with the power to create striking imagery across multiple fixtures. The procedure is streamlined with a familiar user interface and simple controls. Once created, the individual files are uploaded to the fixtures and are then ready for playback to create one combined image.

“The Pixellage feature brings the power and flexibility to the Pixelation Luminaire family that the Collage Generator feature brought to the digital lighting family,” noted Chris Colpaert, VP Creative Lighting. “It’s a remarkably creative addition to the lighting professional’s toolbox.”

The Pixellage feature, which previewed at the LDI 2008 trade show in Las Vegas, is now available for download on the Barco website and from www.highend.com/support/LED
