CEDIA 2014 - RTI has released an IP based device driver for Converging Systems RGB LED technology

RTI has created an absolutely wonderful bi-directional driver for full color (RGB) as well as monochrome LED lighting system. That lighting system utilizes our e-Node which is an Ethernet to Converging Systems BUS (CS-Bus) processor along with any number of Converging Systems' 100 watt LED color processors (ILC-100). These processors provide full color processing for up to 254 connected ETL (cETL) flexible RGB lighting devices (FLLA--RGB) as well as our similar Monochrome devices (FLLA-Mono) per e-Node.(Up to 65,000 devices an ultimately be added.) At CEDIA, we also demonstrate a new RGB+W controller (ILC-400) which shares the same e-Node front end and excellent RTI drivers.

At CEDIA, we also demonstrate a new RGB+W controller (ILC-400) which shares the same e-Node front end and excellent RTI drivers. The system enables very low-end dimming (4096 steps between 1% and off alone) as well as perfect hue-based diming of any color, including hybrid colors such as pink, or aqua or any other color to black without any hue shifts whatsoever.


Over the last few years we have also discovered a need in the market to provide identical or nearly identical functionality to third-party DMX features without adding expensive DMX interfaces. To that end, we also demonstrated at CEDIA our new eNode/dmx which enables up to 32 third-party three-color DMX fixtures to be plugged into a single e-Node/dmx and leverage off the same RTI/Converging Systems device driver and provide nearly identical functionality with those DMX fixtures. The only thing that we cannot provide with those third-party DMX fixtures is the ability for them to dim beyond their limit or eliminate the flicker that they may generate at very low levels (which we can certainly do with our own ILC devices). This new product enables then, any RTI system to control any third-party DMX 3-color controller alongside our own ILC-100 hue accurate dimming products within the same installation. Try one of our e-Node/dmx interfaces with a Philips Colorcove DMX fixture and see the difference our product makes with Philips' products and RTI.

We were so excited to have met so many RTI dealers at the CEDIA Exhibition where our products were on display in various booths around the show floor as the "go-to solution for full color LED lighting" with highly accurate feedback. (This color engine is the same color engine that we used for most of the world's color laser and ink-jet printers in the market today). Also you may have seen us in the Lutron booth as well as the Stewart Filmscreen booth. Our products are ETL Listed (cETL), are Philips licensed and are manufactured in an ISO-9001 certification manufacturing facility here in the US.

We urge any RTI dealer who is inquisitive as the functionality of the RGB Certified driver to actually download it and take a look at the very cool Hue, Saturation, Brightness (new school) sliders as well as the traditional Red, Green, Blue (old school) sliders ALL WITH FULL BI-DIRECTIONAL control. The sample RTI project supports full bi-directional control with our product line such that as you request a lighting effect to initiate, the sliders automatically move to show the HSB and/or RGB components of each color being displayed. Support of the bi-directional commands is seamless and built directly into the driver.

We brought in an XP-3 last week, learned Integration Designer within an hour, and found that we were able to integrate our LED Lighting products using the RTI sample project and RTI driver within minutes. In fact the integration of the RTI Driver within a new RTI project was so easy that we were able to create an integration note which we put up on our website this past weekend and which we have sent to RTI for their review as well. The feedback from the RTI driver has been incredibly positive. (see this link below for the note)

Wait until you see the sample GUI interface screen that RTI has created! We have been told by many, many RTI dealers who have found our products that there is simply nothing like it in the world. We are excited to be partnering with RTI on this great Driver/technology combination. One of our other new announcements at CEDIA was the capability of selecting [b]Tunable White[/b] using our RGB as well as our RGB+W Flexible LED components. We demonstrated selecting CCTs (correlated color temperatures) of 1800K to 7000K with both a new slider as well as discrete touchscreen buttons. This new feature is particularly useful for customers who many want to provide for precise selection of Kelvin temperature output (between 1800K and 7000K) for white while additionally giving the capability of selecting among 16.7 million colors as well. By moving to our RGB+W linear strips our CRI is now just reaching 90+, almost unheard of with flexible RGB lighting products.
