We’ll be in Long Beach this week for USITT 2012 at booth 1070. Need a stage expo pass? Use [this link](https://www.xpressreg.net/register/usit032/start.asp?sc=CSL1070) with the stage expo code **CSL1070**.
We’ll be showing the latest from JB-lighting, Avolites, and more.
CSL Dealer [Pulse Stage Lighting](http://www.pulsestagelighting.com/index.php) is having an Open House to celebrate moving into their new facility.
We’ll be there to show the latest from Creative, including Avolites, JB-lighting, VMB, and Dura-Power distro racks.
If you’re in the Union NJ area you should swing by and check it out.
At this year’s Prolight and Sound, our friends at JB-lighting demonstrated their newest LED moving head: The JBLED A12. Check out the video they posted to Youtube:
We expect these will be shipping around June and that they’ll be in demand.
Prolight and Sound 2011 has kicked off. If you’re at the show make sure to check out some of our friends.
### JB-lighting — Hall 9.0 A60
JB-lighting will show the next evolution in their zooming LED moving head series: the A12.
Full details on the A12 will be released soon, but JB-lighting is saying it “combines the advantages of the A7 with advanced technology.”
### Wireless Solution — Hall 11.0 C81
Wireless Solution will demonstrate the latest generation of Wireless DMX, G4.
> The new G4 product line includes Adaptive Frequency Hopping technology that scans the spectrum automatically to avoid interference from Wi-fi, Intercom and other radio products, W-DMX invisi-wire and data-safe technologies for unparalleled fidelity, and support for RDM (Remote Device Management) so W-DMX units and lighting fixtures connected through W-DMX can be configured remotely with no fuss or cables.
More details on Wireless DMX G4 are available at [Wireless Solution’s Website](http://www.wirelessdmx.com).
### Avolites — Location 11.0 D50
Avolites is showing the latest from their console lineup, including the super-portable Titan Mobile and the upcoming Sapphire Touch.

We’ll be at booth 870. Hope you can stop by.
When we signed up for the USITT New Product Showcase I did not know what we were getting into.
*Above: Bringing a Compulite Vector Ultra Violet to the USITT New Product Showcase*
This is our second year exhibiting at USITT, but my (Dan’s) first time attending a New Product Showcase.
The New Product Showcase is half new product demonstration and half SWAG give away. So we came prepared.
*Preparing to give away SWAG*
I expected an audience, but not **THIS MANY PEOPLE**:
But it was all good fun. We practiced our frisbee technique backstage and the crowd went nuts for them.

There’s one more day left to come by booth 915 and check out JB Lighting’s JBLED moving heads, Compulite Vector and Dlite Consoles, and Wireless Solution’s W-DMX.
Thanks to all of you who came by and visited us at booth 915 today. If you didn’t, here’s what you missed.
The back wall of our booth is literally lined with Compulite consoles. The Ultra Violet is the newest addition to the Compulite family. It’s a portable edition of Compulite’s Vector series, great for the lighting designer on the go.
If you haven’t seen the JBLED A7 or A4 in action, swing by our booth. What’s great about these LED moving heads is that they can zoom in and out for a nice focused beam or wash. Our JB Lighting display here is also completely driven by Wireless Solution’s W-DMX.
We’ve had a few people ask if they can have a frisbee. Yes you can!
From earlier today:
But now, ladies and gentlemen, we have liftoff at booth 915.
The Stage Expo opens tomorrow at 11am. Swing by booth 915 to check out the latest from Creative Stage Lighting, including:
– JB Lighting’s JBLED A7 and A4
– Compulite’s Vector Ultra Violet
– Wireless Solution’s W-DMX
And yes, we have SWAG.
USITT 2010 opens on Wednesday. We’re setting up the CSL Booth tomorrow.
Today was our travel day, so we didn’t get much set up today, although I can give you a sneak peak of the show floor.
Our booth, booth 915, is pretty much that red oval. It will look a lot different this time tomorrow.
In other news…
###Party party party
The guys at [Jimonlight.com](http://www.jimonlight.com) and [iSquint.net](http://www.isquint.net) are hosting parties each night of the conference, so there’s no reason you can’t go out and have a good time.
>Instead of disappointing the masses by having one party night, we’ve decided that we’re going to have a party EVERY NIGHT of USITT, at a different establishment in close proximity to the conference hotel and convention center so that everyone can walk to and fro! There are some events scheduled between the expo floor’s closing and 10pm most nights, I think, so we’re going to start partying around 9pm each night and go until we’re partied out!
They haven’t announced specific details yet. I think the best way to be in the loop is to follow either of them on Twitter.
Feel like you’re in Kansas City by keeping tabs on USITT on Twitter.
If you’re into hashtags it looks like the general consensus is to use #usitt rather than #usitt2010 or #usitt50.
