The new lamp found inside the VL10 BeamWash reportedly produces 28,000 lumens of output

Signify’s Philips Vari-Lite brand has released the new VL10 BeamWash, the first lighting fixture designed around the Philips 25R Platinum 550W lamp. The fixture was subjected to various tests on prime-time television shows and at live concerts before release to ensure its capabilities.

The new lamp found inside the VL10 BeamWash reportedly produces 28,000 lumens of output, which the manufacturer states makes it the brightest fixture in its class. It has a 2.2–48˚ zoom range making for a wide variety of effects, including crisp, tight beams and wide, smooth washes, as well as mid-air blasts and a plethora of other creative beam effects.

Creative effects include dual overlaying prisms, an eight-slot rotating gobo wheel and an aperture wheel featuring 12 designs, such as beam reduction to a ‘laser-like' 0.7˚ and bold break-ups and aerial dynamics. Designers can also access the VL*FX glass animation wheel system, in addition to mega-stepping, twist and shake control capabilities.

Effects can be softened with an internal frost, while strong, even washes can be created in VL10 BeamWash’s dedicated wash mode. The complete Philips Vari-Lite colour palette is also available, while an enhanced CYM colour system and fixed colour wheel deliver subtle hues, deep reds and blues, and everything in-between.

The fixture has a large, 180mm front lens to give it a ‘stage presence’ normally reserved for larger lights. The unit weighs 33kg.
