Avolites Launches T3 and T3-Wing Professional Lighting Controller Solution
Avolites announced its new T3 and T3-Wing professional lighting controller solution, designed and built as the “lightest, smallest footprint, most affordable and exciting design look in the Avolites product range.”
The new T3 has been designed for fast programming and accurate performance in a “super-portable PC wing format and offers high build quality and familiar ergonomics.” This ensures whatever venue or program requirements users have, they can afford to purchase, easily program, easily transport and operate the solution across all their shows.
The T3 is the leading product in the newly named, PC-powered T- Series, comprising of the existing T1, T2, and now with the addition of the new T3 and T3-Wing. Taking design cues from Avolites’ Diamond 9 flagship console, Avolites says its ergonomic design requires less muscle memory to operate, as well as having a lower height profile and being 20% lighter yet still as robust as it iconic predecessor. Users can connect and power the T3 or T3-Wing via the USB-C port and use the four DMX ports and an LTC port to hook up the system to a full rig. Output up to 16 DMX universes from the host PC via Art-Net and sACN, with the option to upgrade to 32 or 64 universes if required. The T3 key features include three optical encoder wheels, nine new titan keys to match the D9 layout, 10 playback faders, 12 macro/executor buttons, 20 C&K flash buttons with custom cap, 92 Cherry MX Low Profile keys with blue backlit illumination and AVOKey security built in.
The new T3 also blends a user-centered design approach with “high-quality materials and components, reliability, comfort and ease of use.” The T3 aims to appeal to a wide range of users, from students, enthusiasts and freelancers to entry-level productions, events and rigged shows. The new T3 and T3-Wing and the custom carry cases they come with can fit into a standard PC backpack along with a 15” PC and weigh well under a 15kg cabin baggage weight limit.
