Elation Satura Profile: Powerful LED-based CMY Moving Head with Framing
Elation Professional has announced the launch of the Satura Profile, an energy-efficient CMY colour-changing moving head in the company’s popular LED-based Satura Series. The Satura Profile features intense output from a 440W cool-white LED engine and houses a host of creative design tools, including zoom and internal framing.
The luminaire’s high-performance LED engine delivers a total of 20,000 lumens, a level of power comparable to a 1200W discharge lamp. A flexible four-blade rotating framing shutter system is included that allows the beam to be shaped and angled as required for precise highlighting of set pieces and performers. Designers can also use the flexible framing system to create outstanding projection or mid-air effects.
A full-range CMY colour mixing system with variable CTO offers a wide palette of color shades while an extra seven dichroic colours provides added colour customisation. A variety of textures and graphics are available from six interchangeable rotating glass gobos and seven static-stamped metal gobos. Beam angle can be resized via a motorized zoom from 11° to a wide 38° for more precise coverage and a frost filter is included when the moment calls for a softer wash effect.
Beam effects can be multiplied via a three-facet rotating prism for stunning looks (with prism macros included for quick programming), and a motorized focus and mechanical iris can be engaged for further effect. The fixture also offers electronic dimming with variable dimming curves, high-speed electronic shutter and strobe.
The Satura Profile produces a surprisingly low amount of heat for such a powerful fixture and includes a Hibernation Mode, which saves power when the fixture is not in use. Sufficiently quiet for use in noise-sensitive environments like theatre and television, the fixture includes a Low Noise Mode that ensures even quieter operation when the LEDs are not on. The Satura Profile operates flicker-free meaning it can be used in all types of broadcast situations.
The fixture is controllable via three DMX modes (33/35/54 channels) and is RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol compatible, enabling users to communicate with it by gathering fixture data remotely for more convenient information feedback and monitoring. The Satura Profile includes a six-button touch control panel with a full-colour 180° reversible LCD menu display that makes for easy navigation through DMX and manual settings and as an added convenience includes its own battery backup for adjusting menu settings without having power to the fixture.
The Satura Profile includes a host of other standard features like professional-grade Neutrik five-pin DMX in/out and PowerCON In connection along with Art-Net and KlingNET support via RJ45 Ethernet in/out connections. It also houses a universal switch-mode power supply for use anywhere in the world.
