We have a winner!

The kick-off for our “Feed the Chimp”- challenge was during the Prolight & Sound event in Frankfurt and the conclusion during our 2018 Experience Day. The challenge where we asked you to design your own predefined effect with a brandnew Bananawing as a prize and, your own created predefined effect made available to each and every Chimp 100 and Chimp 300 unit through the firmware. Light designers all around the world will be able to use your creation.

One design stood out and our judges had the following to say about it: “We have chosen for the “Discharge” effect. Not only the energy but also the symmetry in this design make this effect extremely well suited for a lot of situations where strong contrasts in movement and intensity are required. The usability of the effect impressed the judges but also the complexity of it. The total effect has been constructed out of 4 different layers. That is why we are convinced that this is truly an addition to the current predefined effects which will be available for everyone at the touch of a button.”

The lucky winner of the Bananawing and the one person who will see his predefined effect being added to every Chimp-unit, is Mr. Johan Klerks. The new effect will be added as soon as the next update is available. We would like to congratulate Mr. Klerks with his victory and thank him for the awesome 4-layer predefined effect!

Here’s how it works

You need to own or have access to a Chimp 100 or Chimp 300 unit, we provide the show-file and capture-file as download and you are all set to go. With these files you can create and design your very own made effect. And the best creation will not only win an awesome Infinity Banana Wing, but your effect will be incorporated as predefined effect into the firmware of every Chimp 100 and Chimp 300 unit as well, available for everybody. So put your imagination and creativity to good use and show everybody your move!
