Chroma-Q Color One 100 Provides Premium Performance for Dry Hire Lighting

UK – Buckinghamshire-based Dry Hire Lighting have become one of the first hire companies in the UK to invest in a quantity of the new Chroma-Q Color One 100 premium performance, homogenised output LED Par fixture.

Dry Hire Lighting carry an extensive inventory of technology equipment from leading manufacturers, and pride themselves on providing customers with access to the very latest high-performance lighting solutions.

Dry Hire Lighting’s Rob Merrilees invested in the Color One 100 fixtures following a demo at PLASA London 2014, and a further onsite test at the company's headquarters. "As a company, Dry Hire Lighting does not stock generic lamps and we’ve waited until the new LED technology was at the right output and price to get into the market," says Rob. "We set up the fixtures at our offices and were very impressed with the build quality and the output.

The Color One is a very good, robust fixture."

Chroma-Q Global brand manager, James Bawn comments: "We’re very excited to see what creative possibilities companies such as Dry Hire Lighting and their clients will achieve utilising the Color One 100. We believe the fixture sets a new level of performance in this product sector."

The new Color One 100 LED Par features an innovative fully homogenised beam, virtually eliminating the colour separation and shadows synonymous with LED lighting - delivering above Par performance from ONE source. The unit's optical design provides a smooth, uniform and defined 20° beam. This makes it ideal for use as a front and backlight with clean shadows, and an uplighter with a smooth, even beam.

An extensive RGBA colour-mixing palette delivers outstanding colour blend across the spectrum - including deep-cold blues, red-hot lava looks and super-soft pastels, as well as a complete range of whites. In addition, the high CRI of 93 ensures extremely accurate colour matching.

Theatrical grade dimming emulates the extremely smooth dimming curve of tungsten fixtures.

With convection cooling for near-silent operation, a versatile mounting yoke enabling the fixture to be floor, truss or wall mounted, and a choice of IP20 / IP65 models, the Color One 100 is suitable for numerous entertainment lighting applications.

Other innovative features include a simple to use Infra-Red remote control - enabling users to be up and running within minutes without the requirement of a lighting console - as well as compatibility with industry-standard 6.25" accessories such as egg crates, barndoors and top hats.

"We are looking forward to working with our customers on specifying and hiring out these fixtures over the coming months and we will look to invest in more Color One 100s in due course," Rob concludes.

The Color One 100 fixtures were manufactured to order in a Silver enclosure, and supplied by Chroma-Q UK dealer, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd.

The Chroma-Q range of premium performance solutions is designed and built to exacting standards in North America, and has been adopted by many leading designers and specifiers for some of today's most demanding and prestigious lighting applications - including opera, theatre, TV, venues, touring, events, or other sectors. As a result of this, the brand has received awards from several industry associations.
