Avolites Ltd is a multinational technology company based in Park Royal, London. Avolites manufactures high end professional lighting control consoles, stage dimming equipment, and media servers for use in the professional stage lighting and media control systems industries.
In 2011 the company expanded into the media server sector of the entertainments technology market by acquiring software developed by Immersive Ltd, supplying control systems used in the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony, and the 2014 Winter Sochi Olympics ceremonies.The company has received awards for many of its products, including the ART-series dimmers, the Sapphire Media, and the Ai media server software.
Avolites started as a lighting production company in 1976 when a group of touring road crew formed a company to manufacture their designs for a touring dimmer rack, the Avolites FD dimmer.The company then expanded into manufacturing lighting control consoles, initially releasing the 8100 series, before creating the QM500 series in 1983. During the 1980s the reputation of the brand grew[8] and by the late 1980s the company was purchased by Carlton Television.[9] The company was returned to private ownership as part of a management buy out in 1991. Eventually the lighting production work was discontinued and the company focused on equipment manufacturing only.
During the 1990s the company introduced several new products designed to control the range of intelligent lighting products that were emerging onto the market at the time, releasing the Rolacue Sapphire, Pearl 2000 (released 1995), Sapphire 2000 (released 1998) and Diamond II/III consoles. Most of these consoles were based on Motorola 68000 family processors.
In 1996 the company also updated the FD dimmer, replacing it with the Art 4000. During the 2000s the dimmer product range was redesigned again, resulting in the Art 2000 series of racks; the Art 2000i installation racks and - in the later part of the decade - the PowerCube dimmer/distribution units.
In 2001 Avolites launched the Diamond 4 range of control consoles, which was based on a conventional PC motherboard instead of custom made hardware reliant on Motorola processors. Although the custom hardware consoles were still sold and updated in stages during the 2000s, the company gradually moved software development towards the Windows OS running on conventional PC motherboards. This move allowed the company to re-write its lighting control software, resulting in the release of the Titan software series in the late 2000s.
Since the introduction of Titan the company has designed a range of consoles specifically to run the software, including the Titan One USB DMX dongle, Titan Mobile, Tiger Touch and Sapphire Touch consoles, which were all introduced between 2009 and 2012.
Avolites has manufactured a wide range of lighting control products, accessories and software, but is best known for its range of control consoles and dimmer racks.

Ears: The three individual slots that function as the color frame holder found on the front of some light sources. They are often used to retain other items, such as color wheels, barn doors, etc.

Edison Connector: The standard household male, parallel-blade plug that may or may not have a ground pin.

Edison Lamp Holder: The standard household screw-in lamp socket that accepts medium screw type lamp bases.

Electrical Current: The flow of electrons from one point to another, measured in Amperes.

Electrical Frequency: The cycles per second of alternating current, measured in Hertz. In North America, and parts of South America and Southeast Asia, the frequency is 60Hz. The rest of the world operates on a frequency of 50Hz.

Electrical Noise: A general term for an unwanted electronic disturbance in conductors or electrical or electronic equipment. This equipment can also be the cause of electrical noise.

Electrical Power: The rate at which electricity is delivered to a circuit, in watts, or in reference to magnetic transformers, in Volt-Amperes.

Electronic Ballast: A ballast uses electronic components to limit electrical current. This type of ballast is often referred to as a flicker-free ballast.

Ellipsoidal: Short for Ellipsoidal Spotlight.

Ellipsoidal Spotlight: A spotlight that is encased in an ellipse-shaped reflector and framing shutters, and sometimes an iris and pattern slot.

Eye Light: A small, intense light source used to front light a subject, usually a person`s face, with hard light.

Fahrenheit: A graduated scale used to measure temperature. In the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point is 32°F and the boiling point is 212°F.

Falloff: A term used to describe the illuminated area just outside of the field. (This term may also refer to the illumination in this area.) Light from a point source falls off inversely to the square of the distance. Move the light from 10` away to 20` away, and you have 1/4 of the intensity 40`, 1/16th.
Diffused lights fall off even faster than point sources. See Inverse Square Law.

fc: Abbreviation for foot-candle.

Feed Through: A wiring system employed in some electrical equipment and light sources in which the line-side leads or flush-mount connector(s) for a first item branch into two circuits internally. One circuit provides the electrical supply to the item itself, and the second circuit exits the unit by means of a set of load-side leads or another flush-mount connector(s). This allows for a second item to be electrically connected to the first. A plurality of items may be connected in this way, usually light sources such as strip lights. See Daisy Chain.

Female: A term applied to a connector that contains the holes or slots for receiving the pins, prongs, blades or tabs of a male connector. The female connector should always be attached to the line side of a circuit.

Field Angle: The angle of the vertex of a cone-shaped beam where the perimeter of the base is defined by where the intensity is 10% of the maximum intensity.

Field Diameter: The diameter of the base of a cone-shaped beam where the perimeter of the base is defined by where the intensity is 10% of the maximum intensity.

Filament: The wire inside an incandescent lamp envelope that glows and emits light when heated, i.e., when electricity passes through it.

Fill: To create the illumination needed to reduce shadows in an area or on a subject.

Fill Light: Angled from the side opposite the key light, this light softens the shadows created by the key and evens out the lighting ratio.

Filter: A term that refers to color media, diffusion material, light blocking or neutral density.

Filter Frame: See Color Frame.

Finger: A small, narrow, rectangular scrim, diffuser, reflector, or gobo, placed close to a light source, used for dimming, softening, bounce lighting, and casting shadows, respectively. Fingers are usually 2" to 6" in length, and 12" to 14" in width.

FL: A lamp designation that means flood.

Flag: (Filter, Gobo) An opaque panel, usually made of fabric, placed in the beam of a light source to block a portion of the beam or the whole beam. It can also hide lights in the dark recesses of a scene. They are usually square or slightly rectangular in shape, ranging from 10" to 48" in length, and 12" to 48" in width. Which term you use depends upon the device`s size and what part of the country you are in.

Flash: A tube filled with xenon gas through which an electrical charge of high voltage is passed to create an electrical arc that emits a short, bright flash of light. Flash light is daylight balanced, usually measuring 5500° Kelvin. See Strobe.

Flat Light: See Diffuse Light. All light is characterless, texture less and shallow shadowed when the source is close to the camera. Soft light is, by its nature, flatter than hard light, but even a soft source, above or to the subject`s side, is not flat.

Flicker: The flashing of some light sources that cannot be visually detected because of the frequency of its output voltage, but can adversely affect the way motion picture film records light.

Flicker-Free: A term used to describe electronic ballasts that electronically alter the electrical frequency that causes flicker.

Flood: The position of a moveable lamp, lens or pair of lenses on a spotlight that produces the widest field angle. To direct a large amount of light on a relatively large area.

Flood Light:A light source consisting of a rectangular lamp and sometimes a single lens, used to direct a large amount of light on a relatively large area.

Floppy Flag: A large flag that is designed to fold in half and function as a cutter or smaller flag.

Fluorescence: The property of certain materials to absorb radiation of certain wavelengths, usually ultraviolet, and re-emit the radiation as light.

Fluorescent Lights: Cool and daylight balanced, fluorescent lights have become very popular for photographic and video capture. Fluorescent lighting can be used in the form of screw-in bulbs and reflectors, or rectangular banks of lights.

Foamcore: A polystyrene, Styrofoam material used as a substrate for some reflector boards, effective because of its light weight and ease of mounting via reflector forks.

Focus: To aim and adjust a light source to give the beam its desired size (spot or flood), edge (soft or hard), field (even or peak) and shape (round, patterned or cut).

Focus Lens: A movable lens in a multi-lens optical system that adjusts the focus of a light source.

Follow Spot: A narrow-beam focusing instrument that is manually operated and is usually composed of a powerful light source, an iris, shutters, a color changer and other features. It is usually operated from an adjustable stand and is used to follow performer(s) on a stage with its beam, surrounding the performer(s) in a large pool of light.

Foot-candle (fc): A non-metric unit of measurement for Illumination, i.e., 1 lumen per square foot.

Framing Projector: A spotlight that has framing shutters or barn doors.

Framing Shutters: Thin, movable, heat-resistant metal plates that are introduced into a beam such that a portion(s) of the beam is blocked off,i.e., framed affecting the beam pattern, usually forming a sharp edge in the beam. They are used in various types of light sources, but extensively in ellipsoidal spotlights, usually four (top, bottom, right and left) follow spots, usually two (top and bottom), always situated internally, and usually at the aperture. Framing shutters generally can be independently adjusted, but those used in follow spots usually move simultaneously with a single control mechanism.

French Flag: A small metal flag, usually used for shading.

Fresnel: Short for Fresnel Spotlight.

Fresnel Lens: Named for its inventor, French physicist Augustin J. Fresnel, and developed around 1800 for lighthouses, this is a flat lens consisting of concentric rings on one side that are segments of the spherical portion of a Plano-convex lens. The other side is flat, i.e., Plano. It controls light in the same manner as a Plano-convex lens, which converges light into a beam.Many light sources employing this type of lens have a stippled pattern on the flat side of the lens to diffuse to smooth out the beam.

Fresnel Spotlight: A spotlight employing a single Fresnel lens that produces a soft-edged beam, usually provided with a spherical reflector and a means to adjust the focus from spot to flood.

F/Stop: A rating often applied to scrims used in the film and video industries on their ability to dim light. This rating is directly related to a camera`s ability to allow for the admittance of light.

Full Scrim: A metal scrim whose screen occupies the complete frame.

Fuse: An electrical device designed to stop the flow of electricity automatically when a predetermined over current tries to pass through it. This is meant to prevent further damage or fire from overheating.

Fused Quartz: A relatively pure, high-temperature glass used to manufacture lamp envelopes. It has a melting point of approximately 1650° C.

Gaffer: The lighting technician who is in charge of the electrical aspects of a set or production.

Gaffer Grip: A large, spring-loaded clamp with serrated or rubbercushioned jaws. It usually has a stud or studs for the attachment of luminaries and grip equipment.

Gaffer`s Pole: See Operating Pole.

Gag: An apparatus composed of two grip heads attached to each other via a common bolt.

Gel (Gelatin, Media): As used with photographic lights, a strong, flexible, fade-resistant material, used to change the color, amount or quality of light. A colored filter placed in front of a lighting fixture. Color is an important element in adult learning.

Gobo: A logo or image etched out of metal that allows it to be projected onto a screen, wall, banner or other solid surface. Often used for brand reinforcement during events. Video mapping can be used to produce a similar by higher-end effect.

Guide Number: Guide numbers are used as a rating system to gauge the power or range of flash. The guide number equals the distance x f/stop. For example, say your flash has a guide number of 80. At ISO 100, to determine the proper exposure for a subject 20 feet away, multiply 20 by X number (in this case 4) to get 80 (the guide number). Setting the aperture to f/4 (80 = 20 x 4) will render a proper exposure (at ISO 100).
