At this week’s 2010 Pro Light and Sound expo, Bintellaspot_xt1-rave-0310arco unveiled two new products aimed at the high-end rental and staging markets – the SDI-DMX Mixer Pro and the intellaspot XT-1.

The SDI-DMX Mixer Pro, what Barco is calling a “hybrid switcher” that offers users the ability to switch, mix and matrix four video inputs to four video outputs — is capable of being managed directly from any DMX lighting controller (that’s cool). Barco claims this is to simplify the overall control of the Mixer Pro’s functions. The new SDI-DMX Mixer Pro places the power of video switching and crossfades directly into the lighting designer’s hands.
Dubbed the intellaspot XT-1, the second product Barco launched at the Pro Light and Sound expo is an advanced lighting fixture that’s designed to — as Barco puts it — set a new benchmark in price and performance for mid-market staging customers. As the industry’s newest professional moving luminaire, the intellaspot XT-1 follows last year’s launch of Cyberlight 2.0. According to Barco, the intellaspot XT-1 offers some new innovations in optics, lamp configurations, high lumen output, energy  efficiency, zoom range, and overall feature set — all at what they are saying is a “highly economical price point.” The intellaspot XT-1 is slated for release at the end of Q2.
