Bad Boy – Automated Luminaire

Badboy is a very high intensity, multi-function Automated Spot Luminaire, designed for high-end rental clients in the professional touring/concert market. Aside from extreme brightness, other unique features include high quality imaging capability, huge zoom range and excellent colour saturation.

Working with PRG’s Dallas based R&D team, Nigel was responsible for designing various internal servo drive and structural elements, including multi-stage belt drive mechanisms for pan & tilt axes, Yoke structure, main bearing assemblies and large plastic cover mouldings. The pan & tilt mechanisms also included an automatic brake/clutch system, designed for easier man-handling of the fixture. He was recently awarded a U.S. patent for this particular feature.
