Colorist from Iluminarc European Launch at PLASA
UK - A must-see highlight on stand P80 at PLASA London 2014 was the Colorist Series from Iluminarc, the architectural and architainment lighting brand of Chauvet. Making their European debut at PLASA London, these IP65-rated, high-output colour-mixing RGBA LED pods, panels and linear fixtures have the adaptability to be used across markets. They come housed in sleek, low profile white cases that are designed to blend into all types of architectural installations, as well as provide an elegant look when used in public spaces for event lighting. Robust and weather-resistant, the Colorist fixtures are also very economical and easy to set up and/or install.
All Colorist models come standard with IP-rated DMX tails that can be permanently installed in a covered structure or used for chaining together fixtures at temporary outdoor events like festivals. For added flexibility, the fixtures feature a rugged two-way bracket that can not only be bolted or clamped, but also includes a self-standing "foot" for setting freely on the ground during temporary applications. Additionally, the units have been designed with flush-mounted, tempered lens covers to prevent rain and debris from accumulating on them when pointed upward during outdoor use.
Colorist fixtures also offer flexibility in the area of control, featuring simple standalone operation via an easy-touch LED display, as well as multiple DMX personalities for programming versatility. The two linear units in the series, the Colorist Line 6Qa and Colorist Line 12Qa, provide the added excitement of individual pixel control, allowing colour fades and wipes to be created in addition to straight colour washes. With their IP65 rating, bright output, vibrant colour blending, attractive white cases and versatile options, the Colorist fixtures are ideal for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications. Available in a wide range of sizes and fixture configurations, the series is perfect for nightclubs, amphitheatres, hotels, bars, restaurants, churches, festivals, outdoor exhibits – and much more.
"Iluminarc developed the Colorist Series to fill what we saw was a big gap in the market," said Ben Dickmann, product manager for Iluminarc. "Designers and installers had no good choices in a colour-blending fixture for those ‘in-between’ projects, such as outdoor exhibits or light-duty architectural applications, where optimally you’d want something more substantial than an entertainment light, yet it would be costly and ‘overkill’ to use bulky, expensive units designed for fixed installations.
"The Colorist Series has a unique feature set that makes it the perfect economical and design solution for this large middle-ground area -- all steps between permanent architectural installation and temporary entertainment lighting, indoors and outdoors," added Dickmann.
