It can be a slow and very ineffective way of shutting lights from a projector by turning the power off. This often takes time both when turning it off as well as when turning the power back on. However, when the show is rolling there is no time to wait for this to happen because black out needs to happen fast and effective. This can be achieved with our DMX Projector Shutters.
In short, it is a motor driven flap, you can control from the lighting desk. You can control the Projector Shutter manually for positions and speed as well as pre-programmed to shut off the lights at specific points of time during the show, by using it with an External Button.
DMX Projector Shutters or Video Projector Dowsers

For many years we have produced Wahlberg projector shutters and they are very popular among our customers. The easy set-up, flexible application as well as multiple ways of mounting the projector shutters make it great as a douser in theater.
You can control the projector shutters directly from the lighting desk, so the light from the projector appears or shuts down quickly when you need it to.
This is a very good solution where you need to either shift between light and black out or you need complete black out. With the projector shutters you can black out the lights completely, so even the “video black” is not showing. Only by cutting the light from the projector beam, you can achieve real black out, without the need of shutting down the projector.
The other alternative is to manually hold a blocking unit in front of the projector.
The advantage with our projector shutters is however, that this process is fully automated. You can control all movements directly from the lighting desk and program it as you like.
Place the Projector Shutters on top of the projector, on the side or even besides the projector. The mounting is completely up to you. You can be sure to have a fully flexible solution, which is compatible with your existing setup. It will immediately become a natural part of your scene design setup. Include it exactly the way you want to.
