Intelligent shutter system for a moving-head projector beam controlled on a defined path when moving on pan & tilt. This intelligent protection system prevents the audience from glare or nearby fragile scenery from potential damage. The system allows you to define the illumination exclusion zone(s) for each luminaire during programming. During playback of the sequences, the light will automatically be cut off when the beam(s) pass(es) through the exclusion zone(s). This system can also define the luminaires’ perimeter of use with precision.
