Continuing its theme “Reach Across Worlds in 2024,” Chauvet Professional has added to its Strike series with the Strike Array 4C and Strike Array 2C, both IP65-rated RGBA-WW blinder-strobe-audience lights. The units come with full-colour pods (four in the larger unit and two in the smaller one) that can be independently focused and feature low end dimming capabilities as well as a red shift function that warms the colour temperature of the light as it dims to emulate a classic tungsten look. The variable PWM and high CRI of both units make them the suitable for broadcast applications. They also have a proprietary tool-free interlocking system that allows them to be interconnect in the kind of multiple configurations that are important to live and VR productions.
The Strike Bolt 1C is an IP65-rated strobe featuring integrated Smart Frost that enables the fixture to shift instantly from powerful strobe bursts to smooth colour block effects. Its proprietary Tool-Free Stacking streamlines interconnecting Strike Bolt 1C with Strike Array fixtures in stackable configurations to create unique blinder/strobe arrays. Multiple hanging points, end-to-end connections and floor feet provide rigging versatility. Its included stealth filter can be attached to make the fixture nearly disappear for on-camera use. The Strike Bolt 1C delivers a classic strobe look with a modern performance and is suitable for concerts and touring, festivals and event productions in any environment, live or broadcast, indoors or out.
The Maverick Storm 3 BeamWash comes with two zones of zoom control. Both zones independently zoom from 4.6–53.6° making it possible to have beam and wash combinations in a single fixture. A 16-lens outer zone and 12-lens inner zone combine to deliver 19,062 lumens of output from 28 45W RGBW LEDs.
The COLORado PXL Curve 12 is a fully pixel-mappable, motorised, IP65-rated RGBW LED batten with individual control of zoom, tilt and colour across 12 independent heads. Basic and advanced operating modes and a full library of pre-built effects that includes virtual gobos, movement macros and foreground/background colour control are said to make creating complex and volumetric looks easy. Seamless edge-to-edge mounting maintains pixel pitch between fixtures helping to make runway effects consistent.
Finally, the Ovation Rêve F-3 IP is an outdoor-rated motorised Fresnel incorporating the manufacturer’s full spectrum (RGBAM) Rêve light engine. Designed for applications in need of soft controllable washes, the unit comes an adjustable yoke that allows it to be mounted anywhere, even in low clearance areas. The extended zoom range can narrow from 60° all the way down to 10°, while the unit also boasts smooth dimming, ± green adjustment, linear CCT and adjustable Pulse Width Modulation.
