A number of other top innovations will also be on display, including some surprise product launches. Join Elation at Booth 1117 for a closer look at these stand-out innovations as well as other products in Elation’s line of professional lighting, video and control solutions.
Platinum FLX: With a unique patent-pending dual optical system that gives a uniform and brighter spot field (2.9° to 25°), a narrower beam angle and brighter central point in beam mode (1.8° - 18°), and a higher-quality flat field wash effect, this award-winning multi-functional three-in-one luminaire has clear advantages over traditional hybrid systems. Its 470W Philips MSD Platinum 20R lamp emits up to 23,000 lumens and its intelligent optical system can mechanically switch between beam and spot modes quickly and accurately. It offers full CMY colour mixing with an extra ten dichroic colours including UV, CTB and linear CTO colour correction while graphics are housed in two gobo wheels including eight rotating-interchangeable and six static-stamped gobos. Other features include six-way linear and eight-facet rotating prisms, animation and wash frost effects, ArtNet support and a mechanical shutter for high-speed strobe effects.
EMOTION: A joint venture project between Elation and High End Systems, the EMOTION is a compact yet powerful (4,000 ANSI lumens) moving head digital light that brings to the market the latest in next generation digital lighting technology at a price to performance ratio never seen before. The EMOTION is a plug and play DMX moving light just like a traditional moving light yet houses an on-board media server with 64GB SSHD and royalty-free digital art/videos. Custom content can also be easily uploaded via a CMA application. It features a projection quality that allows for use in a wide range of professional stage, studio, theatrical, club and event applications. Extremely easy to use, users don't need an abundance of DMX channels to operate it like other digital lights on the market.
Platinum HFX: The Platinum HFX is a new compact addition to Elation's hybrid family of beam, spot and wash luminaires. This feature-packed hybrid effects moving head houses the new Philips MSD Platinum 14R 280W lamp which gives 12,000 total lumens of power. Capable of zooming 2.3° to 15° in beam mode, 3° to 22° in spot mode, and 10° to 34° in wash mode, its host of design features includes 13 dichroic colours (including UV and new quad colour RGBY filter, CTO and CTB colour correction), eight rotating-interchangeable gobos and 12 static-stamped gobos, three prisms, wash frost effects and more like Art-Net support.
Satura Profile: This latest energy-efficient CMY colour mixing moving head in Elation’s Satura Series features a high-performance 440W LED engine with output comparable to a 1,200W fixture. A flexible four-blade rotating framing system allows for precise highlighting of set pieces and performers. The CMY colour mixing system with variable CTO offers a wide palette of colour shades while an extra seven dichroic colours provides added colour customisation possibilities. A variety of textures and graphics are available from six interchangeable rotating gobos and seven static-stamped gobos. Add to that a 12-38 degree zoom, frost effect, three-facet rotating prism, motorised focus and mechanical iris and the Satura Profile offers plenty of possibilities for the creative LD.
ACL 360 Roller: The new ACL 360 Roller is a unique moving head luminaire in Elation’s ACL Series of high-output narrow-beam LED effect lights. It houses 20 x 15W RGBW four-in-one LEDs positioned equally across four bars and features fast and precise 16-bit continuous 360° pan and tilt rotation. Its advanced collimator optic lens produces a laser-like homogenized 4° colour changing beam from each LED which combined produce a 21° beam angle from each bar. Full individual pixel control, strobe, and selectable dimming curve effects make it perfect for adding eye-catching ACL beam looks to any stage, show or venue.
E Touch: E Touch is a new generation lighting controller that turns an iPad into a powerful lighting console. Easy to use and budget friendly, E Touch enables users to take full advantage of the iPad’s mobility and multi-touch display. The controller has full support for moving heads, LEDs, conventional lighting and DMX controlled special effects. An E Touch app is the user-interface and requires either the E Touch 1 or 2 device to function, connected via Ethernet and offering an optically isolated DMX-512 port.
RDMX6S: The RDMX6S is an easy-to-use six-way RDM/DMX data splitter with a 5-pin XLR input, a 5-pin XLR thru output, six 5-pin XLR outputs, powerCON In and multi-voltage universal auto switching power supply.
