Chauvet Professional Expands Maverick Series with MK2 Profile
The Chauvet Professional Maverick series has been making its presence felt on tours and festivals, as well as at clubs, with its moving spots, beams, washes and hybrids. Now the ground-breaking line will be turning up at an even wider variety of applications with the introduction of the Maverick MK2 Profile.
The first profile light in the Maverick series, the 440W LED moving yoke fixture has been designed to perform a wide variety of functions in theatrical, house of worship, touring and event applications. With an illuminance of up to 14,981 lux at five metres and a zoom angle of 14° to 36°, the new fixture has the output needed for large venues and the ability to produce a range of beam sizes.
Featuring a four-blade framing shutter system with rotation and dual axis movement for each shutter, the Maverick MK2 Profile allows users to shape and size beams with great precision. The fixture’s iris, three-facet motorised rotating prism and motorised frost provide added beam control.
“We designed the Maverick MK2 Profile to excel in a variety of applications,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “Our goal was to give designers maximum flexibility.”
Adding to this flexibility is the Maverick MK2 Profile’s CMY + CTO colour mixing system and colour wheel, which can be used to produce a rainbow of rich and realistic hues. Opening even more creative options are the fixture’s dual rotating and indexing open gobo wheels, which offer continuous scroll at variable speeds.
The Maverick MK2 Profile also features 16-bit dimming of master dimmer for smooth control of fades, a 3:1 motorised zoom, a colour temperature (at full) of 5883 K, a CRI of 90, electronic dimmer, a pan and tilt of 540°/270° and selectable PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) for flicker-free operation.
Control of the new profile fixture is easy via DMX, WDMX, sACN, and Art-Net. The Maverick MK2 Profile also converts TCP/IP to DMX for shorter data cable runs and offers RDM control over DMX for remote access reporting.
“Our customers asked us for a profile fixture that offered a variety of control options and was also powerful, flexible and user-friendly,” said Chauvet. “We feel that with the Maverick MK2 Profile, we’ve delivered what they wanted, and more.”
