SUNRISE, FL — True to its name, the new Rogue series of moving head fixtures from CHAUVET Professional defies all common expectations. Promoted as “weapons of mass creation,” that liberate the imagination from “the tyranny of tight budgets,” Rogue goes outside the box to offer features like LED gobo morphing, variable speed scrolling and multi prism rotation, that conventional wisdom says could never be found in its price range.
“One of the things that makes Rogue unique is that if offers such outstanding performance and so many features for its price,” said Mike Graham, product manager at CHAUVET Professional. “Rogue will allow even designers on a limited budget to create some very intense, high-impact designs with crisp beams, bright colors, aerial effects and split colors that may have been out of reach to them in the past because the budget wasn’t there.”
Extremely quiet and fast, Rogue fixtures will be right at home in a wide variety of applications. Their rugged construction, lightweight and durability will make them a cost efficient addition to any lighting rig or rental inventory; while their vivid colors, rapid movements and intense beams ensure that they will stand out with audiences and clients.
CHAUVET Professional has introduced four fixtures as part of the rollout of the Rogue series:
• Rogue R1 Spot, a 140W LED that produces a very even flat field and has a 16° beam angle, making it ideal for gobo projection. Other features include an 8-color wheel, as well as two gobo wheels. A 3-facet prism allows this compact fixture to produce some impressive aerial effects, whiles its motorized iris and focus contribute to easy beam shaping.
• Rogue R1 Beam, a powerful beam effect that uses an Osram Sirius 132W HRI lamp to produce 78,700 lux at 15 meters and features game changing dual prisms. The fixture’s 5-facet and 8-facet prisms are layerable and can be rotated and controlled independently to create a world of new possibilities for users to add aerial and gobo effects to their lighting designs.
• Rogue R2 Spot, an intense 240W LED automated spot featuring two continuously and variably scrolling color wheels that place a world of color splitting options at every user’s finger tips. Other features include gobo morphing between wheels, a 16.5° beam angle with motorized iris, frost and 3-facet prism and 16 bit LED dimming for excellent fade control.
• Rogue R2 Beam, a brawny beam that produces 133,200 lux at 15 meters using an Osram Sirius 230W HRI lamp, and features an 8-facet rotating prism can be used to create an endless array of dynamic looks. This powerful light cannon also features a tight 1° beam angle with crisp aerial effects and a color wheel with14 colors.
With features such as these, the four new fixtures should redefine expectations for products in their price category – but defying convention and over throwing preconceived notions is really what being rogue is all about.
