Since its founding in 1992, Apollo Design Technology Inc. has gained a worldwide position in the production and distribution of special effects products to the entertainment lighting industry. Establishing itself early as a leading producer of custom gobos, the company has expanded into other related products used by lighting designers to create stimulating visual effects for theatre, corporate events, concerts, houses of worship, and architectural applications. No matter the product, the Apollo brand is recognized as one of innovation, quality, and value always backed with the highest level of service.
The Right Arm adds pan and tilt capabilities to a wide range of static theatrical and studio lighting fixtures, allowing the designer to maximize the lighting rig without crowding fixtures or over-extending the budget. Video cameras and LCD projectors can be blended into the lighting rig with minimal preparation, providing easy adjustment from the lighting console. The Right Arm conveniently repositions these devices in theatrical and church productions, corporate events, trade shows – anywhere flexibility in the light plot is needed.
The Right Arm contains a two point integral balancing system that allows the use of fixtures which are front or rear heavy, i.e. a long throw ellipsoidal or an ellipsoidal using a colour changer on the front, without adding counter weights or modifying the fixture.
Right Arm Spec Sheet
The MXR’s magic is in it’s unique colour strings. Putting a new twist on two-string colour mixing, the MXR’s innovative colour selection and frame sequence maximize the useful colours.
Multiple designers can now share a stage, as nightmare colour changeovers between shows are eliminated. And students can now develop their own colour tastes without being limited to the gel on hand or swatch book.
With the direct drive 4-motor system providing quiet and smooth colour transition and low power consumption, the MXR gives the designer absolute colour control at a very affordable price.
Off the shelf colour works fine for many lighting applications, but the MXR gives you far more custom colour options. Using the subtractive color mixing method to achieve the desired hue and saturation, hundreds of different colours can be realized. To further the creative process, the primary additive colours (Red, Green, Blue, and Indigo) have been added to the ends of each string.
