CHAUVET® Professional Exhibits at USITT Conference & Stage Expo


SUNRISE, Fla. — Chauvet, a leading manufacturer of professional lighting, will showcase various fixtures fitted for stage and theater at the USITT Annual Conference & Stage Expo, March 21-23 in Milwaukee, Wis. The CHAUVET® Professional brand will display the Ovation™ series of theatrical luminaires at booth 130, next to wash lights from the COLORado™ series. As a sponsor of the opening party CHAUVET® Professional fixtures will also light the festivities. In addition to getting a firsthand look at the CHAUVET® Professional line of theatrical fixtures at the booth, attendees will have the opportunity to experience Ovation™ E-190WW ellipsoidal-style luminaire in the innovation gallery and in the Light Lab. CHAUVET® Professional will also participate in the “Incandescent Profile vs. LED Profile” session conducted by presenters Hideaki Tsutsui, Steve Shelley and Richard Cadena.

CHAUVET® Professional Ovation™ E-190WW and Ovation™ F-165WW luminaires are designed specifically for theater and stage. Powered by 19 10-watt LEDs, Ovation™ E-190WW—styled after the ellipsoidal spot fixtures—delivers over 3,446 lux at 5 meters (using the 26-degree lens tube). Ovation™ E-190WW has standard beam shaping shutters, separate gobo and effect slots and lens barrels that are interchangeable with other ERS fixtures. Ovation™ E-190WW has a color temperature of 3,100K, a beautiful flat field, a 16-bit dimming curve, allowing for smooth fades at the lowest levels. Powered by 16 10-watt LEDs, Ovation™ F-165WW—the line’s Fresnel-style fixture—delivers over 1,730 lux at 5 meters (13 degrees) without a significant temperature-related drop off. The fixture has an easily adjustable motorized zoom and works exceptionally well with barn doors to aid in glare reduction and beam shaping. Knobs for local control of both dimming and zoom enable fast focus calls with or without a board-op. Its innovative LED source produces smooth, even washes from 9 to 52 degrees with a color temperature of 3,100K and a beautiful soft field. Selectable dimming curves make it compatible with older, traditional theater Fresnel lights. Sixteen-bit dimming allows for precise level control and dimming to levels below 1%.

CHAUVET® Professional COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour has 61 3-watt Cree LEDs – red, green, blue and white – for massive output and amazing color mixing capabilities, from intense hues to subtle pastels. A 6- to 35-degree flexible zoom precisely sizes the pool of light, while built-in color temperature presets from 3,200K to 10,000K constantly provide predictable color. Use this silent and flicker-free fixture with confidence in noise-sensitive environments and on camera. Quick and safe setup is due to direct 3- and 5-pin DMX in/out and Neutrik® powerCON® in/out connectors.

CHAUVET® Professional COLORado™ 1-Quad Tour features a robust casing that houses seven 10-watt RGBW quad-colored LEDs for an overall boost in color output. Built-in color temperature presets from 3,200 to 10,000K provide precise color temperature, while five distinct dimming curves give the ability to simulate incandescent lighting. With an even 11-degree beam angle, COLORado™ 1-Quad Tour punches through the brightest of stage washes. Use this silent and flicker-free luminaire with confidence in noise-sensitive environments and on camera. Floor and truss mounting is easy with the split yoke bracket, and setup is quick and safe due to direct 3- and 5-pin DMX in/out and Neutrik® powerCON® in/out connectors.

CHAUVET® Professional COLORado™ Zoom WW Tour features 30 warm white and seven cool white LEDs, for a variable warm white output and a color temperature of 3,800K at full output. This fixture makes for a flexible addition to any lighting rig, due to its electronic 12-to-44-degree zoom. COLORado™ Zoom WW Tour intermixes well with existing incandescent or tungsten wash lights and boasts a self-cooling, rugged aluminum housing, as well as five dimming curves, secure Neutrik® powerCON® in-and-out and direct 3- and 5-pin DMX connectors. COLORado™ Zoom WW Tour also includes a built-in gel frame holder.
