Blachere Illumination

The world’s first recyclable and biodegradable lighting motifs

Blachere Illumination has developed an enviable international reputation as one of the world’s market leaders in festive illuminations thanks to their unrivalled ability to design, manufacture and install projects from one small tree to an entire city centre display.

Leading the way of the future, Blachere Illumination are changing the face of the industry forever with the launch of its BIOPRINT range, the world’s first recyclable and biodegradable lighting motifs.

The new technology represents a step change in the festive lighting market where most manufacturers rely upon fibre glass material to deliver their solutions which cannot be recycled and therefore has cost and landfill implications.

The unique and innovative BIOPRINT lighting system is manufactured from a revolutionary biodegradable material which is made from sugar cane and certified as GMO-free to ensure it decomposes naturally without polluting or harming the environment.

Discover how BIOPRINT can help you meet your environment targets and reduce your carbon footprint.

Zada Technology is exhibiting a control room “fall-back” solution based on Weytecs network keyboard and distributed platform.

Developed in Switzerland for the banking and financial sector the tried and tested solution has been adopted by Zada to provide a means to maximise control room script space, by controlling associated PC,s CCTV systems, intercoms, access control etc. from one keyboard.

The system can then be used to create a fall back, where just the keyboard is undocked and deployed at the designated fall-back room. The control room workstation is left secure and moves the intelligence to the fall-back room.

The keyboard has an optional Joystick connection for camera control, a microphone and speaker for help points and can link to any number of PC’s. The optional rack PC’s not only offers space saving and reduced power consumption, but also gives an extra layer of security through the WEY network.
