Artiste Monet Indispensable Technology Award Winner
USA – Elation Professional has started 2020 off with a bang with two distinguished product awards: an Indispensable Technology Award for the Artiste Monet and a ProSoundWeb & Live Sound International Readers’ Choice award for the Fuze Profile, both cutting edge LED profile moving heads.
Bestowedon 17th January at the Parnelli Awards during the NAMM show, the Indispensable Technology (IT) Award for Lighting marks the Artiste Monet’s third industry award and the Artiste Series’ eighth accolade. The IT Awards recognize products that have advanced the state of the art in entertainment technology and are voted on by subscribers to PLSN and Front of House magazines.
On hand at the Anaheim Hilton Pacific Ballroom to accept the award were Elation sales and marketing director Eric Loader and Elation product manager Matthias Hinrichs. “Winning an award never gets old and the Indispensable Technology award is extra special as it reflects the opinion of users and knowledgeable professionals who use and specify products every day,” remarked Eric Loader. “We’re thrilled to again be recognized as an innovator in entertainment lighting and honored to add it to the Artiste’s growing trophy case.”
The 45,000-lumen Artiste Monet is a full-featured LED Profile luminaire that houses Elation’s proprietary seven-flag SpectraColor color mixing and continuous rotation framing systems. Increasingly specified on both the production and installation sides of the market, its growing list of references includes prestigious venues like The Metropolitan Opera in New York City.
Days earlier, the company’s Fuze Profile was chosen by ProSoundWeb readers to be a top lighting product in the entertainment technology industry, winning a 2020 Readers’ Choice Award (RCA). All voting for an RCA is by readers of ProSoundWeb and end-users from around the world. With over 25,000 ballots cast, it is one of the most successful entertainment technology awards programmes in the industry.
Designed with both creativity and value in mind, the Fuze Profile is a full-color-spectrum, LED moving head with framing designed for applications where beam control and high color quality is important. It is loaded with design features like zoom, two gobo wheels, animation wheel, frost, prism and full blackout framing system. The 2020 Readers’ Choice award is the Fuze Profile’s second accolade having won a WFX New Product Award last fall.
