Avolites Celebrates 45th Anniversary of Producing Inspired Creative Visual Control Solutions

Avolites, a world leader in the innovation of visual control systems, is celebrating its 45th anniversary today. First established in 1976 under a railway arch in Hammersmith, London, from its first touring dimmer rack, the landmark Avolites FD dimmer, to the launch of its latest flagship Diamond 9 console earlier this year, the company has been at the forefront of technological change in the lighting events industry ever since.

Throughout its history, Avolites has believed in the power of
technology innovation to improve creative expression and has coupled that approach with component reliability, ergonomically designed interfaces allowing for ever-more artistic freedom, quality finish, and inspired design. As such it has played a key role in enabling shows to become bigger, more demanding, and more immersive over the decades. From the largest touring shows to the biggest stage productions and the world’s leading nightclubs, Avolites has ensured that the multimedia visual canvases that delight audiences worldwide fulfil the ever-more demanding ambitions of their designers.

The company was first set up by Ian Walley in 1976 and gets its name from the AVO meter (Amps, Volts, and Ohms) that he would habitually have with him at load-ins. Over the decades, Avolites has manufactured a wide range of lighting control and networking products, media servers, accessories, and software, but is probably best known for its range of lighting control consoles and dimmer racks. These include the first generation of consoles designed to control the new intelligent lighting products that were emerging onto the market in the 1990s, such as the Pearl, Sapphire, and first Diamond consoles; the Art series of dimmers followed by the PowerCube dimmer/distribution units in the 2000s; and the launch of its own game-changing Titan lighting control software in 2009.

A strategic move into
media servers also saw the launch of the ‘Ai’ software platform, both were used in the opening and closing ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics to perform video mapping across the audience seats, setting a Guinness World Record for the largest landscape video display. The pioneering Synergy software feature set was launched in 2019, allowing the power of video and lighting to be used interchangeably for the first time by everyone, and not just programming professionals. And 2021 saw the launch of the new flagship console, the Diamond 9, featuring vast screen real-estate, all-new controls, and unique media integration that intuitively combines the control of all visual aspects of a show and is ready for the next generation of shows and beyond.

Along the way, the original FD dimmer was updated many times, and still currently lives on as the Art 2020, though it is a much evolved product from the original design
.
“At the heart of every technology decision or innovation lie our users and customers; the lighting and video designers and operators, who use the tools we create,” explains Avolites Managing Director, Paul Wong. “Avolites has always been about the people who use its products. All our best product innovations are born from hundreds of conversations and consultations of users and customers. It is why our software platforms have a visually led, intuitive user interface, with no intense training required to get up and running.”

Given the length of its history and the depth of its heritage, it is unsurprising to see that there have been corporate changes over the years. In the 1980s it was briefly owned by Carlton Television, before returning back to private ownership following a MBO led by three employees:
Rick Salzedo (currently Chairman), Steve Warren (currently New Business Director), and Meena Varatharajan (retired Finance Director).

Recent years have seen more changes too, with Paul Wong heading up a new team of directors that have steered the company through the Covid-19 pandemic and are now looking towards the next 45 years of its development. Within these developments, 2021 has also seen the launch of the company’s new brand identity and logo. This is the first significant change to the company’s marque since 1976. It reflects the future – facing strategy direction of the company, whilst underscoring Avolites’ creative-led approach to lighting and media design.

I feel extremely proud to be able to lead such a great British brand into the future, together with our highly talented and dynamic board of directors, some long-serving employees, others new to the company,” says Wong. “With our leadership team ready and in place, and a dedicated, talented, and growing number of staff, we are all set and committed to building on what has come before, serving our loyal customers by enabling their creative ambition to become a visual reality. Heres to the next 45 years!

“Looking back all those years ago, when we took the company over from Carlton Television in 1991, it is remarkable to think of how much has changed and where we are now,” comments Rick Salzedo, Avolites Chairman. “We have been extremely fortunate to have had the benefit of working with so many wonderful people, staff, and customers over the years, many of whom have gone on to become good friends. Along the way we have had our share of good and not so good fortune — 2020 will not go down as a fabulous year for anyone in our industry! — but none of what has been achieved would have been possible without the backing of our fantastic staff. Having said that, I also want to acknowledge the colossal contribution both Menna and Steve have made since that MBO; theirs is a significant legacy, which our foundations have been built upon. All three of us are extremely proud of what Avolites has achieved over the years, but I am even more excited about the future of the company. Never have its foundations and leadership been in better shape.

AJA FS-HDR Helps Drive HDR Production for Studio Berlin

From UltraHD to IP, AI and HDR, technological innovations are fundamentally reimagining production and enabling more compelling audience experiences. However, each advancement brings new challenges, as early HDR adopter Studio Berlin has discovered. The technology company has long explored HDR to elevate production quality on a range of projects, including live sporting events like Bundesliga matches, and entertainment programs such as “Joko and Klaas against Pro7” and “Late Night” with Klaas Heufer-Umlauf. Depending upon the project, the Studio Berlin team can either be found out in the field with one of its five outside broadcast (OB) vans or a custom fly pack, or hunkered down in one of its studios in Berlin, Cologne or Munich. Regardless of the production locale, the AJA FS-HDR real-time HDR/WCG converter is employed to serve a range of conversion needs.
