Elation Professional LDI 2012
Elation Turns Up The Power And Design Options
While Reducing Fixture Size/Energy Use At LDI 2012
LAS VEGAS – Lighting professionals are seeking fixtures that deliver greater brightness and more creative tools, while at the same time are smaller in size and energy consumption. Elation Professional is delivering this seemingly contradictory combination of features with products that “go beyond the ordinary” at LDI 2012, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center October 18-21.
Among the highlights at Elation’s LDI Booth #1101 will be DMX moving heads that feature new, higher-output Philips Platinum lamps that are incredibly compact in size and low in energy use for the power and brightness they produce, as well as new LED lighting engine source fixtures that are certain to raise the bar! Visitors to the Elation display will also see innovative fixtures that have “surprise” features, which will inspire them to take their designs to new creative heights. These include the new Rayzor series LED beam/wash moving heads as well as the Platinum Wash ZFX Pro/ Platinum Wash ZFX Pro XL, which add a Zoom and Zone Chase Effect to an RGBW LED wash. There will also be some unique new battery-powered/ wireless DMX fixtures like a Quad-Color uplight series called Volt, as well as an RGB color changing unit that’s shaped like a cylinder called the Event Cylinder.
Here’s a closer look at products that are sure to be in the spotlight at Elation’s LDI Booth #1101:
Rayzor Q7 and Rayzor Q12 – The Rayzor series are new compact, ultra-fast, high-output LED beam/wash fixtures designed with extreme new high-efficient narrow 7° beam optics and high power 15W Quad-Color RGBW LEDs, which provide a narrow beam effect with pixel chase effects and control. The units are the most compact, fastest moving heads Elation has made to date….providing “Rayzor” sharp beams, effects and movements.
Volt – The Volt Series (Volt Q3 and Volt Q5) from Elation are a pair professional grade rechargeable long-life battery-powered portable LED lighting fixtures designed for special event uplighting applications. Housed in an IP65 rated enclosure, the Volt is ideal for indoor or outdoor events. The VOLT comes in 3 or 5 x 15 Watt Quad Color RGBW LED sources with HO optic lens. It features a remote charging station as well as “snap on” diffusion filters and built-in wireless DMX receiver in a small, compact, light weight yet rugged design ideal for all portable on-the-go productions, providing a true “Green” lighting design solution!
Platinum Beam 15R Pro -- The ultra-compact Platinum Beam 15R Pro takes Elation’s wildly popular Platinum Beam 5R extreme ACL beam effect to the next level of brightness. Powered by the new Philips Platinum 15R lamp, its searchlight-like beam rivals a 1,200-watt discharge lamp, yet it consumes a mere 500W at maximum use. Measuring just 13.7”x14.9”x 22.4,” it fits in the tightest spaces and includes a built-in EWDMX wireless DMX receiver that receives signals wirelessly over 3,000’ (when used with an optional EWDMX transmitter). Ideal for concerts, stage productions, sports events, churches and broadcast use, the cETLus-approved unit is also very versatile, featuring a variable frost filter that diffuses its hard-edge 4.8° beam, turning it into a 2-in-1 hybrid wash effect. Its many other design features include: 10 dichroic colors, 7 gobos (8 rotating/indexing, 9 static), 8-facet prism, variable speed strobe, dual-flag mechanical dimming, remote focus, integrated DMX recorder, 630°/540° pan and 265° tilt.
Platinum Spot 35 Pro – After showing a preliminary design at Frankfurt PLS show this year in March and getting feedback from customers since then, Elation’s R&D team has spent the summer perfecting and improving the optics, motors, speed and smooth movements on this fixture, which now provides 16-bit resolution on all functions and overall performance certain to please even the most discriminating designers. Utilizing the new Philips Platinum 35 lamp and a razor sharp optical system design, the Platinum Spot 35 Pro is an 800-watt moving head spot that offers extreme output, feature set and speed for its compact size – being comparable in brightness to a 1,500-watt fixture. Its many pro features and effects make it a designer’s delight, including: CMY color mixing; variable CTO; color wheel with 8 dichroic colors (including UV); large motorized zoom with 8° to 53° range; auto-focus / zoom system; 12 rotating/indexing gobos; iris; variable frost, animation wheel effect; and 3-facet rotating/indexing prism. It also includes a built-in EWDMX wireless DMX receiver and multi-voltage universal power supply.
Platinum Wash ZFX Pro/ Platinum Wash ZFX Pro XL – These RGBW LED color-mixing moving head wash effects have “ZFX” in their name, which stands for Zoom and Effects. Both feature a motorized Zoom and Zone Chase Effects, making them much more high-energy visual effects than the typical wash – and ideal for the added visual eye candy popular in today’s shows. The Platinum Wash ZFX Pro contains 19 x 10-watt HO OSRAM QUAD-color (red, green, blue, white) LEDs. Although its total LED engine is just 190 watts, it produces an amazingly bright output comparable to 700-watt discharge fixtures. The Platinum Wash ZFX Pro XL features 37 X 10-watt HO OSRAM QUAD-color RGBW LEDs, for a total LED engine of 370 watts, yet it rivals a 1,200-watt wash fixture in output. Both units are ETL listed and CE approved.
Event Cylinder – From modular chandeliers to glowing columns of light, your designs will be limited only by your imagination with this one-foot-diameter tubular-shaped transparent RGB color-changing unit. Battery powered and rated at IP65 for outdoor use, the Event Cylinder can go almost anywhere to add color and excitement. It comes in two versions: Wireless DMX (Event Cylinder DMX); and RF with Wireless Remote included (Event Cylinder RF).
ELAR Quad Series – This exciting new series of IP65 outdoor-rated RGBW wash fixtures was built for rugged production use, uplighting, and much more. It utilizes high-power 10-watt CREE LEDs with cutting-edge Quad-Color technology for bright output and the highest quality, most advanced color mixing, while offering pixel control for extreme LED matrix effects.
