System XL3
 
 Since fifteen years, pyrotechnic displays have become more complex, modern and pyrotechnic’s delays disappeared to benefit synchronisation and digital firing.
  Now the trend is to repart firing points and to multiply firing cues. Large numbers of firing lines, complexity and wiring cost (wires, igniters and installation time) make fireworks more and more difficult to manage with classical firing systems.
  We based our research in studying a system which offers the assets of digital technologies, as well as preserving easy material management and conviviality. We synthesized great material innovations as far as digital pyrotechnic systems are concerned.
  The VEGA-XL3 system is, thanks to its technologies, one of the most high-performance tools on the market. It meets all your expectations as a designer, and brings to the display crew all the comfort they need on site. It is easy to work with, and has undeniable technological advances:
  - Stereo Media player with wave quality
  - External or internal Time code for synchronisation
  - Both manual and automatic shooting sequences the possibility to access all sequences during the show.
  - A new possibility to increase distances between the Control unit and V-BOX (satellites) which is never been reached before
  - A high performance HF communication
  - Exceptional firing speed
