Robe Launches New BMFL Wash Luminaire At LDI 2015

Robe underlines the importance of the American market by announcing a major new product launch at the 2015 LDI expo in Las Vegas … the BMFL Wash and BMFL Wash XF (Extra Features).

There will also be a host of other exciting new products making their US debut at Booth 2521 at the Las Vegas Convention Center 23rd – 25th October.

BMFL Wash and BMFL Wash XF are the ultimate 1700W lamp based wash lights, and the latest fixtures to be added to Robe’s ‘game-changing’ BMFL range of luminaires. These are  powerful workhorse wash lights, packed with innovative and creative features.

A large 200 mm diameter front fresnel lens provides a high quality traditional wash output ranging from a punchy and tight 4.5° to a super-smooth 55°.

Custom interchangeable frost filters offer three grades - light, medium and heavy - giving an extremely subtle and natural ‘soft touch’.

Both CMY and CTO color mixing filters produce some serious finesse and the fine quality color transitions for which the BMFL range is already famous. Two color wheels each have 6 colors and a custom replaceable “SLOT&LOCK” position for additional versatility.

Advanced DMX controllable ‘edge aberration correction’ helps create smoother hues and seamless coverage.

The optional XF module can be either purchased with the fixture or quickly and easily retro-fitted – it simply drops into place … opening up a whole world of additional possibilities.

This includes the super-cool ‘internal Scrim’, a graduated filter that can be inserted in the light path and rotated around the whole assembly plus/minus 130° to achieve an even wash coverage when the light is projecting onto a non-perpendicular surface. A perfectly even and balanced beam is guaranteed.

This patent-pending feature is another original innovation from Robe for its BMFL series and will be invaluable in theatre, TV and film lighting environments.

Internal motorized barn doors can be utilized to create unique shapes and chases as well as for the more practical task of controlling light spillage. The barn door module consists has four individually controllable blades, and itself turns 180 degrees.

Aimed at long-throw applications, the newly patented Robe EMS™ (Electronic Motion Stabilizer) technology, enables the BMFL™ to absorb vibrations from audio outputs, truss movement, sprung or suspended floors, etc.

Robe will also be showing a range of other new products including the Square which combines the possibilities of video projection, pixel animation, beam effects and LED wash lighting in one fixture with continuous pan/tilt rotation movement; the ColorStrobe from Robe, an RGBW version of the potent new LED Strobe from Robe; Viva, an elegant brand new lightweight spot moving light fixture; and the PATT 2013 tungsten softlight, the first of a fabulous new range of retro luminaires from Robe for stage and studio.

Specially highlighted at the Robe sponsored recharge lounge is the new DL7S Profile™ - The Full Spectrum – the first DL range fixture to receive a powerful new 800W version of the LED engine with seven colors for unprecedented smooth, stable and even color mixing and a very high CRI of 92. From the deepest to the lightest the DL7S provides a rich full color spectrum experience, with custom color mixing and dimming plus seamless operation, particularly at the minimum brightness levels. Four fast framing shutters within the optical path are individually controllable for position and angle, and as with all the DL luminaires, the multiple LED lightsource is completely homogenized.

More additions to Robe’s DL range include the DL4X Spot, DL4S Profile and the DL4F Wash, all with enhanced output and features.

Robe’s BMFL Blade is also prominent at the booth, together with the hugely successful BMFL Spot - the first fixtures launched in this powerful signature range.

Also showing … is a new version of Robe’s ParFect LED PAR fixture; the new CycBar 15 LED batten and the outrageously bright white LED Strobe from Robe.

As always the Robe booth will be right at the heart of the show buzz, business and activity, multi-lingual staff will be on hand and full product demos and discussions will take place throughout the weekend … Visit Robe for all the action … and much more!
