FRANKFURT, GERMANY -- Wherever or however you use professional lighting, you're bound to find an ingenious solution to your illumination needs at Elation Professional's booth at the ProLight + Sound trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany, April 6-9. If there's one word that sums up the Los Angeles-based lighting supplier's display at the 2011 PL+S show, it's “variety” -- and if there's a second word, it's “innovation.”
Elation will be turning show-goers' heads with original, ground-breaking products that cut across all lighting categories, from new hi-res LED video panels -- including one (EPV 762 MH) that pans and tilts just like a moving head fixture! -- to its most powerful Platinum Series moving head spot fixture to date, the Platinum Spot 15R Pro, which delivers 700-watt brightness, but is one-third smaller than a 700-watt moving head and consumes one-half the power. Whether you're looking for that perfect warm white LED stage/studio light, or a ruggedly-built color-mixing LED par can that can be used outdoors, you'll find innovative products that meet your needs at Elation's PL+S show booth, Hall 11, Booth #D67
Here is a closer look at some new ground-breaking products that Elation will be introducing at this year's PL+S show:
EPV 762 MH – A high-resolution 7.62mm pitch LED moving head video panel, the EPV 762 MH can rotate just like a moving yoke light fixture. Its pan of 540° and tilt of 265° give video displays maximum exposure at shows and events. Equipped with 4,096 tri-color (red, green and blue) SMD LEDs and featuring 2,000 nit brightness and high contrast levels, this versatile screen will create eye-popping videos, graphics, text messages, special effects or any other image. A high refresh rate of 2,000Hz ensures flicker-free performance. Each square panel measures 19.2” x 19.2”/488mm x 488mm and is equipped with Ethercom input/output for the video signal and Powercon in/out for power link, and includes its own built-in 100-240V psu. Extremely energy efficient, each panel consumes just 350 watts of electricity maximum (230 watts average).
EPV 6 – Another member of the EPV (Elation Professional Video) Series, this high-resolution LED video panel features a 6mm pixel pitch and wide viewing angle (H 140°/V 110°) for sharply detailed images and stunning impact. High contrast levels and extreme brightness add to its video quality. It also offers flicker-free operation, thanks to its high refresh rate. Extremely easy to hang and rig, the EPV 6 has a slim integrated cabinet design, making it ideal for fitting into tight spaces.
Platinum Spot 15 R Pro – Designed for larger concert/arena applications, the Platinum Spot 15R Pro is the most powerful member to date in the Elation Platinum Series of space/energy-saving moving heads. Utilizing the revolutionary new Philips 300-watt MSD Platinum 15R lamp, it is comparable in brightness to a 700-watt (and some 1,200-watt) moving heads, yet is one-third smaller than a 700-watt fixture and uses just 43% of the power. Featuring CMY color mixing, it is loaded with pro features, including a 8 dichroic colors, 22 gobos (8 rotating and replaceable), a 3-facet rotating prism, strobe effect, Motorized Iris, Motorized Focus, Variable Zoom (9° to 27° beam angle), and variable Frost Filter that gives it the versatility to function as a “hybrid” spot-wash fixture. The Platinum Spot 15R Pro also includes a built-in EWDMX wireless DMX receiver, allowing it to receive DMX signals wirelessly from up to 3,000 feet away when used with an Elation EWDMXT transmitter (sold separately).
Platinum Wash LED Zoom – A high-power DMX LED moving head color wash built on Elation's Platinum-style base, the Platinum Wash LED Zoom features an 11°-36.5° Zoom and a built-in EWDMX wireless DMX receiver. Equipped with 30 x 10-watt 50,000-hour-rated Quad Color RGBW CREE LEDs, it provides smooth, even color mixing free of “LED shadows.” Comparable in brightness to a 575-watt wash, it consumes only 360 watts at maximum use, and measures a compact 14”L x 13.2”W x 19”H/ 356 x 335 x 483mm.
WW Tone – A high-output 100-watt warm white LED wash fixture, the WW Tone is the ideal key light, stage wash or house light. Featuring the new Bridgeluxâ„¢ LED source (3,000K color temperature 82 CRI), and silent operation, it is perfect for broadcast, stage or front of house lighting applications. Capable of operating in 2 DMX modes, the WW Tone includes an electronic Dimmer and Strobe. It comes with barn doors, a gel frame and 25° lens standard, with optional 45° lens available. A 5-year LED engine warranty (supplied by the LED manufacturer) adds to its value.
ELAR 162 TRI Par – For colors or whites, indoors or out, this IP65-rated LED par can has the versatility and durability to handle the job. Powered by 18 x 9-watt TRI LEDs, it offers superior RGB color blending, with no distractive shadows.
