                FRAME AND HANG

                    Media (color, "gel") Frames 

Media frames are sized to fit within the lighting instrument retainer flanges and have lens size openings (for lensed instruments). Several other frame sizes and non-metal "safety frames" are also available.

Le320    MEDIA FRAME  7½" x 61/8"  for Le6350.    24.00
Le303    MEDIA FRAME 7½" x 7½  for 6" units & most PAR 56.    4.25
Le308    MEDIA FRAME  813/16" x 79/16" for Le6595.    14.00
Le323    MEDIA FRAME  813/16" x 8½"  for Le6585.    11.00

For other frame styles/sizes, provide dimensions and/or instrument brand/model.
GMW6    MOTORIZED COLOR WHEEL  6 media frames, 7 rpm, fits 7½" frame slot.    130.00

                    Snoots (top hats) & Barndoors (4-door) 

Snoots restrict the spread of light as it leaves the instrument, providing a more focused circle of light.
   5" SNOOT  for 6" x 6" frame slot.    26.00
Le352    6" SNOOT  for 7½" x 7½" frame slot.    28.00
Le353    8" SNOOT  for 10" x 10" frame slot.    30.00
Barndoors function like shutters in ellipsoidals and follow spots. By adjusting the angle of each door, projection is limited in that direction, eliminating "spill" onto areas where illumination is undesirable. Other shapes and sizes are available.
Le341    5" BARNDOORS  for 6" x 6" frame slot.    60.00
Le342    6" BARNDOORS  for 7½" x 7½" frame slot.    65.00

                    Clamps, Trunnions, Ladders, Safety Cables  Le535

Clamps are intended for pipe mounting, note varying pipe diameter capacities. Trunnions are a pair of triangular supports suitable for  floor standing or, with 2 C-clamps, pipe mounting. Ladders are pipe-hung racks suitable for mounting lighting, effects, or other units. Safety cables should be looped throught the instrument yoke then over the pipe and snapped, serving as a "last resort" instrument support should instrument or clamp be released, especially when moving or focussing.

                CONNECTOR CABLES <LDB>

Stage lighting electrical power cables are generally design classified as adapter, multiplier, or extension cables. Adapters permit interconnection of differing NEMA type connectors. Multipliers permit a single power source to branch to 2 or more receptacles. Extensions are generally available in 25', 50' oe 100' lengths with the same NEMA type plug and receptacle, but may be customized as requested including bundled multiple cables ("snakes"). Following are a few examples: M = male plug, F = female receptacle. Request your needs.

    DIGITAL MULTIMETER  for measuring voltage, amperage, cable and lamp continuity      15.00
            No shop or stage should be without a VOM (volt-ohm-milliameter). This economical model will be paid for
            with the first functional "dead" stage lamp not thrown away.

                PROJECTION PATTERNS (gobo)  <LA

Several hundred steel patterns, including interlocking and glass for multi-color background, floor, or display projections. Focussed projections require an ellipsoidal, pattern projector, or similar unit. Generally, patterns and holders are sized by focal point/image diameter. When ordering specify pattern diameter and holder slot width or, if no slot, lighting instrument lens diameter and type of planned  pattern mounting. Pattern image subjects copies on request.
Sizing: Most focusable 6" instruments will use a 3" pattern (some sized 3 3/8) = 86 mm = size "B". Also available: "E" = 37.5 mm, "D" (glass) = 51.8 mm, "D" (metal) = 53.3 mm, "M" = 66 mm, "BG"  = 79 mm, "A" = 100 mm, plus custom sizes.
A----    GLASS PATTERNS  various colors and sizes, most require special holders.    from 60.00
Le362    3" PATTERN HOLDER  for most 6" fixtures.    9.00
Ro15786    3" GLASS PATTERN HOLDER  for many 6" fixtures and 1 or 2 steel and/or most glass patterns.    20.00
Other brands, sizes, and configurations of patterns and holders are available. Request custom patterns (from 85.00) and animations information.


GTSAID: Nearly all light control media are a coated glass or polyester base and are designed to achieve one or more of the following:  Restrict Transmission Color (change the color by reducing or elliminating some frequencies), Restrict Lumen Transmission (reduce illumination), or Expand Transmission Coverage Area (diffusion). These media are commonly classified as Color, Color Correction, Reduction, or Diffusion. All of these processes reduce light concentration; i.e., the darker or more diffuse the media, the less light available at a given point. The process of absorbing radiation frequencies heats the media, tending over time to degrade the coating, thus changing the light transmission characteristics. The media stability and price is generally increased as follows:  Coated Polyester, Sandwiched Polyester (coating between poly layers), Polycarbonate, Acrylic Panels (for large opening color correction), Single-coated Glass (1 transmission frequency specification dye), Dichroic Glass (2 or more different dye films). Order by "color" number and name. For additional details and other assistance - ask.

                                                GTSAID:  THERMAL MEDIA
If polyester media is melting or prematurely wrinkling, do not install glass media until the problem is elliminated. First confirm that the lighting instruments are receiving a continuous flow of cooling ambient air. If not, improved air circulation or a lower thermal lamp output is needed. Otherwise, thermal media should be considered. Thermal media is placed between the lamp and the color media. Two types exist: heat dissipation or reflection. Infrared (IR) reflective coated media returns the heat toward the lamp, potentially reducing lamp life and, generally, is a last resort. Pirex or similar materials will absorb IR radiation frequencies, reducing the heat reaching the color media. Most (not all) lighting instrument media frame flanges allow space for two frames or other ~1/8" thick filters. If located against the color media, limited heat dissipation will occur. Ideally, the absorption media should be separated from the color media to allow greater heat dissipation into the air. Media extenders are available, but bolting a media frame, with or without spacers, to the front of the flanges is a less expensive solution. Telephone 712/255-0972 for further assiatance.

Ask about dichroic, patterned, custom, UV, or polarizing filters. Also, black foil, specialty frames, and other media-associated products. MUCH MORE.
