Elation Innovation Coming to 2019 NAMM Show
USA – Visitors to the NAMM Show 24-27 January at the Anaheim Convention Center will be able to see some of Elation’s latest lighting innovations at Booth #11542 in Hall A. The NAMM Show is North America's largest trade show for music industry products and the perfect opportunity to talk to a qualified Elation professional about bringing your lighting system to the next level.
On display – and shipping from February – will be the much-talked-about RAYZOR 760, a compact yet powerful LED wash effects luminaire with SparkLED technology. SparkLED consists of 28 individual white LEDs inside the front lens that creates a unique additional layer of effect. Driven by seven, independently controlled 60W RGBW LEDs, the RAYZOR 760 with wide zoom projects well-defined mid-air beams as well as an exceptionally even wash. Continuous pan nad tilt rotation adds another layer of dynamic effect.
Featuring alongside the RAYZOR 760 will be the Smarty Hybrid, a full-featured spot/beam/wash fixture and the most compact CMY colour mixing hybrid Elation has released to date. Features include motorised zoom, full CMY colour mixing, linear CTO, 13 dichroic colours, two gobo wheels, prism overlay and more. Elation has introduced an ultimate warranty programme on Smarty Hybrid that covers the first two years of operation or 6,000 hours of use, whichever comes first, and includes the efficient Philips MSD Platinum 200 Flex 280W lamp.
Also on show will be the new Protron Eclypse, a high-powered and highly versatile hybrid LED luminaire that can multi-function as a bright blinder, powerful strobe, high-output wash light or creative eye candy effect in one. Featuring 96 x 10W CREE RGBW four-in-one LEDs with pixel zone control, strobe intensity, duration, rate and FX control, the Protron Eclypse can fill multiple requirements in the rig.
Obsidian Control Systems has announce that both the powerful NX 2 and the portable NX Wing are now shipping and will showcase at NAMM. The NX 2 is the ultimate compact yet fully-integrated lighting controller with all the connectivity and power the ever-increasing size of shows demands. The NX Wing is the complementary USB control surface to operate Obsidian Control Systems’ ONYX platform on any PC system without compromise.
Obsidian Control Systems is offering Capture SOLO lighting design, documentation and visualisation software free with any NX Series console purchased. Universally regarded as easy-to-use visualisation software with a fast learning curve, Capture lets users work with lighting, video, laser, moving scenery and water elements to visualise a design and help sway clients.
Elation is also pleased to be offering free Capture and ONYX training sessions on 24th January at the NAMM show. The sessions will cover the basics of Capture 2018 and ONYX software and will be held from 10:30 am to 1:00pm (Capture) and 2:00pm-6:00pm (ONYX).
