Just a quick question... What happened to Lightwave Research? I haven't seen that name on any of the newer fixtures & isn't on the new FQ-100 fog machine that I could see. Did HES drop that name when they became part of Barco?

    The Lightwave Research name was officially dropped a long time ago. Originally when High End Systems started they distributed Clay Paky and other fixtures. When they decided to begin manufacturing their own products it was better to create a new company for the engineering and manufacturing and then have the HES distribute those products too. Eventually only HES was the business and LightWave research went away, although many of the Engineers still liked to claim they worked for LW.

    So the change happened well before Barco bought HES.
