The SolaFrame 1000 offers a 20,000-lumen output
High End Systems has released what it calls a ‘go-to workhorse’ in the form of the SolaFrame 1000. Ultra-bright and high CRI versions of the automated framing fixture are available. The SolaFrame 1000 reportedly offers a 20,000-lumen output, full framing shutters, rotating and fixed gobo wheels, multiple colour systems, a 12–40° zoom and a range of animation effects. The fixture comes bundled with a TM30 filter designed to elevate the ultra-bright engine to 85+ CRI. Other features include iris and light frost, a rotating prism and High End Systems’ Lens Defogger System.
A further new arrival is the SolaPix family of pixel wash fixtures, created to envelop environments in saturated colour via an additive LED, RGBW, colour mixing system, as well as tuneable whites. The family has two members initially: SolaPix 7 and SolaPix 19. The SolaPix models also feature a narrow zoom and a macro- and pixel-controlled face that enables a wide variety of effects, in addition to completely washing an area. Both SolaPix 7 and SolaPix 19 also provide a 4.5–60° zoom, a FleX Effects Engine for customising macros, pixel-mapping capabilities, modular control using Art-Net or sACN, with simultaneous DMX control, and the manufacturer’s HaloGraphic Pixel Definition technology.
Another addition to High End Systems’ catalogue is the Pro One-Cell luminaire for short- and medium-throw applications. With a CRI over 90 and a variety of colour-temperature and beam-spread options, the Pro One-Cell fixtures reportedly provide convection cooling, noiseless operation and stepless dimming, and come in both fixed and adjustable recessed options. The Pro One-Cell comes in 18°, 30° and 50° beam angles with the additional option of fade to warm technology. It uses the D1 ArcMesh Driver and fits in a 170mm ceiling cutout. The Pro One-Cell Small produces 19°, 24°, 37° and 60° beam angles, uses the D1 ArcMesh Driver and fits in a 95mm ceiling cutout, while the Pro One-Cell Micro comes in 19°, 24°, 37° and 60° beam angles, uses the D2 ArcMesh Driver and fits in a 79mm ceiling cutout. A high-output version of the Pro One-Cell provides more than 8,000 lumens and comes with 2,700K and 3,000K colour options.
Finally, the SolaHyBeam 3000 automated fixture has been designed for beam control and aerial effects. It is powered by a white light LED engine and features a large front aperture and optimised long-throw optics. The 750W Ultra-Brite engine produces 37,000 field lumens, while the 210mm glass front lens comes with a patented lens defogger. The zoom ranges from 3.1–55° and a 16-blade iris reportedly provides extremely tight beam effects.
