The Rosco I-Cue Intelligent Mirror allows you to use your spotlights with much greater flexibility and control. The major function of the I-Cue is the ability to re-position the beam of light so a single spotlight in a fixed position can illuminate dozens of different locations. The Rosco I-Cue has onboard DMX, which means that control and direction of the mirror (and the beam it reflects) is available through your lighting control system. The industry standard DMX protocol assures accurate and repeatable beam placement. With a pan of 230 degrees and a tilt of 57.3 degrees, the I-Cue can convert any standard theatrical spotlight into an effective moving light. Color scrollers made by all the major manufacturers can be used with the I-Cue, allowing you to create spectacular moving-light, moving-color effects so popular in today's lighting designs.
The Rosco I-Cue is an intelligent mirror accessory designed to allow users of ellipsoidal spotlights to achieve many of the moving light effects traditionally available with automated fixtures. The unit is controlled via DMX 512 in 8 bit or 16 bit resolution. The moving mirror head offers smooth pan and tilt as well as quick response re-positioning.
The Rosco I-Cue also acts as a multiple positioning light fixture for any space with a limited number of lighting fixtures, limited hang space, or a limited number of dimmers, allowing a single fixture to take the place of multiple single use fixtures. Utilizing the onboard DMX makes changing positions as simple as recording a cue, or multiple cues on your light board.
The device requires a 24 volt DC power supply. Multiple units may be "daisy chained" together. At 24 volts DC, the Rosco I-Cue consumes 0.7 amps. Many of the 24 volt power supply units offered by the major manufacturers of color scrollers will run the Rosco I-Cue. Here is a partial list of the scroller power supply units known to be compatible with the Rosco I-Cue:
The Rosco I-Cue is built with ultraquiet stepper motors so it may be used in such production settings as concert halls and theatres. The device weighs only 3.5 pounds (1.59kg) and will not tip the balance of the fixture to which it is attached. The plastic mirror used in the Rosco I-Cue is a first surface mirror, 6"x 7" (15.24 x 17.78 cm).
Smart Power™ power supplies provide 24 VDC to lighting accessories such as Smart Move® rotators and Smart Color® scrollers
as well as control indexing devices with a DMX signal.
