Chauvet Professional Showcases Expanded Ovation Series at LDI

USA – Chauvet Professional’s Ovation series is taking the colour mixing magic of its RGBA-Lime LED system to new places. At the upcoming LDI show, the company will be debuting the industry’s first full-colour RGBAL Fresnel and houselight fixtures. Joining them at the Ovation booth (1415) will be other groundbreaking products, including a variable white Fresnel and ellipsoidal.

Leading the way are the Ovation F-915FC, a high-output Fresnel with a motorised zoom that has a 30°-73° field angle, and the Ovation F-55FC, a three-inch 'inkie' Fresnel for short throw applications. Both fixtures feature Ovation’s RGBAL colour mixing system that allows them to render an endless spectrum of colours, from subtle pastels to punchy saturates. Virtually silent, the two fixtures are ideal for theatrical and broadcast applications. Other features shared by the two new Fresnels are 16-bit dimming, a virtual colour wheel and colour temperature presets.

“The Ovation F-915FC and Ovation F-55FC incorporate lime LEDs into their colour-mixing system,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “Designers have been very impressed with the results that they’ve been able to achieve with our Ovation RGBAL ellipsoidals, so we’re excited to extend this capability to Fresnels. Both fixtures were designed from the ground up as RGBAL Fresnels. The Ovation F-915FC is also the first fixture of its kind to feature a motorised zoom.”

Also bringing a new level of colour-rendering possibilities to theatre, houses of worship, retail and other applications is the new Ovation H-605FC. The first RGBAL house light on the market, this compact, convection-cooled fixture produces a rainbow of colours as well as white in virtually any colour temperature. Other features include a virtual colour wheel, 16-bit dimming for smooth fades, WDMX and Remote Device Management (RDM). The unit comes with a yoke for pipe mounting or suspending from loop eyes. It also has interchangeable lens plates for different mounting heights.

In addition to its expanded array of colour-rendering RGBAL fixtures, Chauvet Professional is introducing two new variable white fixtures: the Ovation F-915VW Fresnel and Ovation E-930VW ellipsoidal. Both of these high-output fixtures use a custom six-colour LED system to render an array of colours, as well as white in nearly any colour temperature, with high CRI and CQS. Each colour temperature can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the level of green.

Both fixtures include remote device management, adjustable pulse width modulation and 16-bit dimming. The Ovation F-915VW also features a motorised zoom with a 30°-73° field angle, while the Ovation E-930VW works with all industry standard lens tubes and accessories.

Other new offerings from Chauvet Professional at LDI include the Ovation F-55WW, Ovation FTD-55WW and Ovation F-265WW. Warm white three-inch 'inkie' Fresnels, the quiet 55 Watt Ovation F-55WW and Ovation FTD-55WW have outputs greater than a standard 100 Watt inkie fixture. Both fixtures have a manually operated zoom with a 30°-69° field angle. The track mountable Ovation FTD-55WW also has a barndoor.

The Ovation F-265WW has a high CRI (96+) field of light. Control of its motorised zoom, which has a 27°-68° field angle, can be achieved via DMX or on-board dials.

“Our Fresnels, along with the rest of the Ovation fixtures we’ll be showcasing at LDI, represent new solutions for designers in a variety of applications,” said Chauvet. “We are very excited going into this show.”
