TMB Offers Technology and Hospitality at LDI 2017

At LDI this year, TMB will once again feature exciting new technology in a comfortable, laid back setting.  We’re saving a chair for you!  From fixtures, control, and networking; to cabling, power distro, and rigging accessories; there’s plenty to check out at TMB.

Following on the spectacular success of our Flare and Flare LR fixtures, this year we proudly introduce the new Flare Q+ Rayzr.  The Rayzr offers famous Flare brightness, control, performance, and video-mapping features in a super low-profile, razor-thin format.  Flexible mounting and joining options are available for scenery, truss, pipe, and floor.  Vertically hang coupled units up to 3m in total length.  Rayzr has both silent and super-bright modes, and is available in 50 and 100cm lengths.

ProPlex PowerData, a new addition to TMB’s range of popular cables, is the first and only UL-Listed range of integrated data and mains power cables, 100% legal for extra-hard duty usage per NEC 520 and 530.  This unique range of cables is built to a new, collaboratively developed, UL standard.  Both flexible and durable, PowerData cables are designed for long-term portable stage and studio use and provide a previously unavailable combination of convenience and assured safety.

Other additions to the ProPlex range of high-quality touring cables are:  PowerData Low-Voltage (LV) 8+2, and ProPlex HD/SDI.  PowerData LV 8+2 is a durable CAT6/low-voltage hybrid cable, compatible with the new Neutrik 8+2 XLR connector.  It provides full Gigabit Ethernet performance up to 85 meters, in combination with up to 20Amps of low-voltage power.  New, easy-handling ProPlex HD/SDI cables are available in RG-6 and RG-59 formats, with flawless 4K performance sweep-tested to 6 GHz.

The newest members of the venerable Grapple family are Grapple Cable Hangers.  These truss-mounted accessories conveniently organize cables, keeping them neat, tidy, and segregated.  Especially valuable to speed up load-outs, Grapple Cable Hangers are available in two adjustable sizes, for 12-15” and 20.5-30” truss, handling two or three cable-runs respectively.  Designed for the professional touring market, they instantly attach anywhere on the truss.

A full complement of proprietary or exclusive products will be available for hands-on demos.  Wireless Solution of Sweden will display the fully-redesigned and upgraded, adaptive W-DMX G5 wireless lighting control systems. Firefly’s premium decorative lighting systems, from Australia, include Fairy Lights long-life, heavy-duty LED Strings and Icicles, Festoon low-voltage LED systems, as well as FloppyFlex and FloppyFlex Digital professional grade LED neon.  Also on hand are ProPlex Data Distribution networking systems; Pro Cables, “The First and Still the Best” professional cable assemblies; IMS Mk2 individually DMX-controlled marquee/festoon lighting systems; Nuri*Lites LED fixtures; and much, much more!

On Friday evening beginning at 5:30 pm, TMB will honor our dear departed “large and loud” friend and first-ever TMB employee, Tommy Stephenson, with stories, toasts, and general frolic, just the way Tommy would have wanted.  No moment of silence for Tommy.

Be sure and stop by booth 1589 at the back of the hall. (What happens at the TMB booth, stays at the TMB booth!)  See you there!
