    Hey,

    Does anyone have any idea when the Futronix P400 with the blue display will be available? I have sent a PM to the guy at audiovisiononline.co.uk but had no reply - any idea where else I might be able to get one from & when?

    Thanks,
    Alex.

    Hi there

    The problem associated with blue numerical LED's in the past is that they are quite dim and difficult to see from a distance. I know that there are now high brightness versions available and hopefully Futronix will use these as a relpacement or option to the existing red displays soon. If I here of this happening I will post information for you

    Update – the blue LED display has been available since 2006. White is now standard for the Futronix P100, P400 and P800 scene dimmers. Blue has been retained as an option for new colours like the Sahara Champagne finish. In reply to the question, the LED's are high quality with good colour rendering.

    Thanks to all

    The blue LEDS are too bloody bright though! The P400 in my bedroom is practically like daylight! :rolleyes:

    Hi

    A carefully cut peice of red filter film glued across the display window will cut the display brightness right down.:)
