Pride of place on the Christie stand at Prolight and Sound, went to the Christie Nitro moving yoke series. Christie staged a comparison between the Nitro YK100 and a standard automated discharge light — positioned next to each other and running off the same DMX console.

This shoot-out was designed to prove conclusively the benefits rental stagers and lighting designers can derive from using a yoke-based system to show video content that can be changed on the fly rather than having to create new gobos for the fixed moving light each time.

Christie welcomed customers old and new, to hourly presentations given by Field Application Engineer (and experienced event technician), Jan Walter, in which he compared a Christie YK100 single arm projection yoke (specifically designed for Christie M Series and Christie LX1500 projectors) to a standard moving light.

The presentation included comparison of like-for-like differences such as focus, strobe and gobos — and drew large crowds to the Christie stand, and a favourable response to the Nitro product.
