Ushio is not known only for their diverse lamp line but is a part of the follow spot game in North America. Their newest follow spot the Sai 500 has an incredible throw distance of up to 30ft. With 440w, this medium-sized venue instrument has an incredible 0-100% dimming through its smooth iris and easy to change boomerang. DMX control is an added option on this fixture and with a list price of 12,500, this fixture will be ready for your venue around the first of the year.
Ushio also distributes Zylight which is known in video content creation circles, but an interesting fixture is the Pro-Palette LED cyclorama light designed for TV studios and theatres. It is powerful, energy-efficient and able to change colors smoothly through DMX controls. It produces a soft and even field of asymmetrical light in a choice of RGBW (for a backdrop of multi-color mixes), or pure white light. Available as a single unit, the Pro-Palette can be easily daisy-chained through 4 units side by side providing greater saturation of light projecting color up to 25 feet. The Pro-Palette has a simple and intuitive local control panel for setup, control, and addressing can be dimmed smoothly from 100 to 0%, and is RDM ready.
