"'Total Fabrication Flies the Nest' said our lead news page, revealing that Chris Cronin and Peter Johns had purchased the UK and US divisions of Total Fabrication from Light & Sound Design (LSD). Cronin, who had been managing the company for some years, was to be joined by Johns from LSD, while another former LSD employee, Ian Coles, would run the US operation from LSD's Los Angeles office."

"The LED patent dispute rumbled on this month with the news that Super Vision International, the Florida-based manufacturer of LED lighting systems, had filed a motion for summary judgement against Color Kinetics. The motion included nine affidavits from, among others, Jerry Laidman, a lighting engineer who had created colour-changing LED effects in the late 1970s, and High End Systems co-founder Richard Belliveau, who had recently sold his patent for a variable colour lighting system to Super Vision."

Phil WardThis month:The Return of the Mack

"Whether or not Gunness' coaxial designs can ultimately be distilled into large-scale touring rigs - and there's no shortage of confidence within PreSonus that they can be - the assault on live sound can now begin in earnest . . ."

ReadClassic Gear

Classic GearThis month: Strand MMS

"The more you read, the more you investigate, the more you ask around, the more you realise what a remarkable group of people worked in Rank Strand's control team from the late 1960s onwards. Some of their achievements we've covered here already: the National's Lightboard, the Galaxy."

ReadCrew Cuts

Crew CutsThis month: Karl Taylor - LX systems tech / programmer

"My first memory of anything lighting was at a very young age watching my Dad operate the lighting for the Sennelager Players at the Army theatre in Paderborn, Germany - just down the road from MA Lighting HQ. Apparently he used a Strand Tempus desk, Pat 23s and 37s."

ReadRecollected Works

Ian DowThis month: Who switched the lights off?

"At 10,000 feet the pilot had to climb again and, as we needed the side door open, ordered everyone to put on their oxygen masks. The lady from Radio 5 Live didn't have one, so we had two choices . . ."

Second FixThis month: Standards? What's standards?

"To me, at the very least, standards encourage you to think; to consider products and ways of doing things that you wouldn't otherwise have done."

Richard CadenaThis month: 3D Motion Graphics

"In a relatively short time, 3D software has gone from Mike the Talking Head to almost anything you can imagine. It's become the one of the most powerful palettes for painting on the most imaginative canvasses."


QandAThis month: Phil Ward talks to Andy Simmons, director of sales at Orbital Sound
