FEBRUARY, 2016 • Johnson Systems Inc. (JSI) supplies 20th Century FOX Studios, Los Angeles with forty-one (41) additional CD-3000-SV-RR48 Control Systems to compliment the previously supplied sixty-seven (67) systems in 2014 and 2015. In conjunction with both Fox Set Lighting and Emlight Design, a custom adapter kit was developed by Johnson Systems for use with Innovative/Angkor 48 channel rolling racks as their OEM electronics were plagued with unreliable poor performance and limited capabilities. Fox Studios directly addressed other short-comings of the Innovative/Angkor dimmer racks in house including improved cooling and a professional painting. Project installation and integration was professionally coordinated through area technical dealer Emlight Design.
JULY, 2015 • Johnson Systems Inc. (JSI) supplies 20th Century FOX Studios, Los Angeles with fifty-seven (57) new CD-3000-SV-RR48 Control Systems to replace the failing Strand CD80 OEM electronics.
Further to the initial August, 2014 upgrades of ten (10) systems, the remainder all FOX set lighting CD80 Dimmer Racks have now been upgraded with new JSI electronics equipment. This upgrade was performed after almost a full year of flawless operation of the initial ten (10) systems. Selection was based on product performance - no competitive equipment was considered acceptable by FOX Studios management in the long-term interest of the company. Project installation and integration was professionally handled through area technical dealer Emlight Design.
AUGUST, 2014 • Johnson Systems Inc. (JSI) supplies 20th Century FOX Studios, Los Angeles with ten (10) new JSI CD-3000-SV-RR48 Control Systems to replace the failing OEM electronics in their Strand CD80 compact dimmer racks. Selection of the CD-3000-SV-48RR was performed by the FOX set lighting team after critical evaluation of competitive alternates.
Project installation and integration was professionally handled through technical dealer Emlight Design. "Studio personnel were impressed at how fast and clean the equipment installed and they are thrilled about the versatility of the Ethernet input as well as the numerous state-of-the-art 'Green' features available", states Emlight Design's Maurice Garcia.
"We decided to convert across our entire dimmer inventory to the JSI CD80SV rolling rack retrofits due to our ongoing problem with modern console compatibility, reliability and high maintenance of the original components on our 20+ year old dimmer racks. During our research we were impressed with the high quality of the JSI components and well thought out engineering enabling quick, painless, and uncomplicated retrofitting. JSI, and Emlight Designs, response to all our inquires during our research were fast, technically informative and always generous in offering support during and after the conversion. The conversion process was smooth, complete and supported in person by Emlight, and easier than we were hoping for. To date we have had zero issues with the upgrades. All console boards have been compatible, zero mystery errors as with the originals, and the end users find them to be the easiest racks they have ever worked with.
Best decision we ever made."
