The BRICKBLASTER Pro provides flicker free, high intensity wall washing capability for the MLB Fan Cave set. The MLB Fan Cave is half TV studio and half themed environment.
The design of the MLB Fan Cave (Times Square New York City) required a compact yet powerful LED fixture. The BRICKBLASTER Pro RGBW was selected due to its compact size, ability to generate an infinite color spectrum and professional grade DMX dimming. The compact size of the BRICKBLASTER Pro allowed them to be hidden throughout the set, out of view from the cameras, to create high impact color washes on different scenic elements. The BRICKBLASTER Pro Series of LED fixtures are known for being able to fit into impossibly small locations and for disappearing on stage or in permanent installations.
Many professional users have experienced “flickering” when utilizing LED fixtures in applications where video or film will be captured. This undesired effect is due to the low pulse width modulation (PWM) rates used to energize the LEDs in some fixtures. During operation, LEDs are pulsed on and off at high frequency. The PWM rate is the frequency which the LEDs are
pulsed – which is generally faster than the human eye can perceive. If the pulse rate is not fast enough the “off” states of the pulse can be captured on video and this undesirable “flickering” effect can be observed. The BRICKBLASTER Pro features one of the fastest PWM rates in the industry, which allows for flicker free operation. The BRICKBLASTER Pro’s high PWM rate, full speed DMX control and theatrical grade dimming capabilities make it ideal for use in TV, film, digital video and studio applications.
The BRICKBLASTER Pro series has recently been replaced by the MIRO Cube series. MIRO Cubes can be used as a one for one replacement for BRICKBLASTERs. For more information on the MIRO Cube Series – Click Here.
