UK - lation Professional will be showing visitors to PLASA 2018 a range of innovative lighting tools with real impact that continues Elation’s efforts to bring innovation and best-in-class ROI products to the market. Lighting professionals will have the opportunity to see the company’s newest innovations 16-18 September at PLASA Stand H40 at Olympia in West London.

Elation will be showcasing the Smarty Hybrid, a full-featured spot, beam and wash fixture and the most compact CMY colour mixing hybrid Elation has released to date. At the heart of the fixture is a new Platinum lamp using 'FLEX' technology which offers a 'smartly' designed discharge lamp/ballast package (6,000 hour lamp life) for high output (14,000 lumens) performance at an efficient and affordable price point. The lamp is dimmable and power to the lamp is reduced when not in use. Features include motorised zoom, full CMY colour mixing, linear CTO, 13 dichroic colours, two gobo wheels, prism overlay and more. Elation has introduced a new 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 highly-efficient Philips Platinum FLEX 200 lamp

Elation is embarking on a new chapter in its evolution with launch of Obsidian Control Systems, an accessible line of advanced yet intuitive lighting control products. Obsidian products run on ONYX, an innovative yet uncomplicated lighting control platform that is backwards compatible with all M-Series lighting control products. Obsidian offers a wide range of lighting controllers, including excellent entry level options, which are exclusively distributed by Elation Professional worldwide.

Elation continues to expand its award-winning Artiste series of creative, full-featured moving heads. At PLASA, look for the Artiste Picasso, an inspirational theatrical-grade luminaire that connects art to engineering. One of the brightest and most feature-rich profile LED lighting fixtures on the market today, it is a high-output (22,000 lumens), feature-packed (zoom, framing, CMY, CTO, gobo wheels, animation, prisms, frost and more) yet compact profile light featuring a new high-power 600W cool white LED engine.

Also on show will be the Cuepix 16 IP, a powerful, 4x4 LED LED blinder and effect panel with all-weather IP65 protection. Designers can add high-impact colour or white light, eye candy or pixel-mapped effects, to productions of all types without the worry of weather and cost and inconvenience of protective coverings.

Elation now offers two new series of LED colour changers that use the latest seven-colour multi-chip LED technology, SEVEN Batten linear lighting effects and outdoor-rated SEVEN PAR IP colour changers. Both luminaires give lighting designers access to an even wider spectrum of colour options to paint stages, sets, scrims and scenery in high-impact coloured or high-quality white light.

The Elation team looks forward to a great PLASA and welcomes lighting professionals to Stand H40 for a closer look at these exciting innovations. Register for the PLASA show at
