I know this topic has been in discussion before but those were posted a few months ago and I wanted a more updated since there are newer fixtures out there and other lighting manufacturers are starting to come out with their own versions.

So far I've been eyeing the Blizzard Puck line or the Chauvet SlimPar. The newer generations have tri-colored LED's installed so there's no color shadowing at the bottom of the light beam. Also the newers models include an amber LED to give the light more warmth than the typical "hyper blue" white light output most LED fixtures produce.

So my questions are:

What LED uplighting fixture would you recommend? I would love to hear from actual product users who own them.

Also can you recommend a simple DMX controller that I can program the colors then store them in some kind of preset/controller so I don't have to be there to man the controller and anyone can run the presets?

I've seen the W-DMX wireless units, Blizzard wiICICLES and the Chauvet DiFi. Am I missing any other wireless DMX units?

Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

How many presets/scenes? How "dummy-proof" for playback? Do you need any "movement", as in color chases or timed fades?

Probably 10- 20 presets (the more the better)
Pretty dummy-proof (they just have to set up the uplighting, plug in the controller and press the presets)
Would like the option of a time fade but mostly it'll be used as constant "on" until another preset is pressed

Let me know if you need any other info.

Thanks!

I don't own them (nobody does I think as they are just about to be released afaik) but I find these two intriguing:

EUROLITE LED CLS-18 QCL RGBW 18x8W 12

EUROLITE LED ML-56 QCL RGBW/RGBA 18x8W bk

The ML-56 actually has 12 x 8W RGBW QCL modules and 6 x 8W RGBA QCL modules which seems very useful.

Video of CLS-18 on YouTube

Showdesigner 1 would be my first choice. Lots of programming options and pretty much dummy-proof playback.
