SUNY Delhi, the State University of New York at Delhi in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, has taken delivery of 16 Prism Projection RevEAL Color Wash (RevEAL CW) LED luminaires for the Farrell Student Activity Center Auditorium. The complement of LEDs come in a host of configurations, including 37º, 50º, 70º and very wide sync wash-style to accommodate placement from front to back of house.
Introduced late last year, RevEAL CW fixtures have quickly gained a reputation for unparalleled color rendering, palette, repeatability and beam quality. Designed for TV studios, film productions, theater, worship, events, theme parks, architecture and other no-compromise applications, the RevEAL CW is a robust, environmentally-friendly luminaire. It features TrueSource(tm) optical and color LED management technology for precise and repeatable color and optimum optics, multi-primary color mixing and optical feedback.
The luminaires were specified by Kris Nutting, project manager for lighting systems at BMI Supply, which also handled the design and integration. He had planned to update the auditorium's lighting inventory with ellipsoidals, PARs and a sky cyc but they had no color changing capabilities.
"Then we had a demo of the RevEAL CW, and I looked at the wattage settings and color changing options," he recalls. "With these fixtures you don't need to change a lamp or gel. It's very easy for the user to select a color and save it. That's a great feature, especially for users who are not lighting people as is the case at SUNY Delhi."
The lights have been deployed for a number of productions at the venue, and Nutting reports that they are working very well. "I think they're a pretty neat fixture and very versatile," he says. "Because of the white light you can output people can actually read a playbill or even class notes without hurting their eyes. And the lights' refresh rate and color temperature are much better. The CW is the first LED that's been that close to a conventional light - that's why I decided on them."
All of Prism Projection's RevEAL products produce a fully-blended LED beam. They combine multiple LED colors into a single (source) beam, thus eliminating color separation and unpleasing striations in the beam and delivering uniform and consistent beam quality.
RevEAL products also produce an extended color gamut using a five-color mixing process: red, green, blue, cyan and amber. The advanced optical algorithms produce amazingly pure and consistent colors, including white light with a CRI above 95 with a CCT range from 1,800K to 8,000K.
In addition, the products encompass a realtime tri-stimulus optical feedback sensor, which, through constant monitoring of the light output, ensures precise and accurate color. The optical sensor feeding color data to advanced algorithms guarantees performance.
