Chauvet Professional

On the Pro line Chauvet has developed a whole array of new lights in pretty much all areas including; Pars, Ellipsoidals, Batten lights, and Movers.

For the Pars, they now offer the “COLORado Solo Series” with the designation of “1”, “2”, and “3”. Each using the equivalent of LED RGBW 60 Watt Chips these fixtures are bright but consistent across the line. They all have motorized zooms on them which is handy when you do not want to get up on a ladder to swap lenses. Depending on the unit you should expect to get between 8 thru 55 degs range. Their faces are completely homogenized so gone are the days of looking at all those different colored LEDs. The best part is that these fixtures are outdoor rated (IP65) which is great if you are using them for events outdoors.

Chauvet OvationIn the Ellipsoidal line they have greatly added to their selection. Most units still use their RGBA-Lime LEDs which give you lots of possibilities for color, but their newer models now boast an output of close to a 750 Watt equivalent HPL lamp! Units can now come with HD lenses designed by Chauvet in 14, 19, 26, 36, and 50 deg options. They were proud to say that their lenses perform as good if not better than anyone’s on the market right now.

The “Ovation B” series fill are new batten fixtures that boast a bunch of groundbreaking features such as an RGBA-Lime color system and the incorporation of RDM, Art-Net™ and sACN plus standard DMX for programming and networking options. A 60 deg holographic filter is included and locks into place so the fixture can be used in any orientation with no worry about the filter sliding out. The units come in a variety of lengths from 1’-6’ long.

Their new moving light line is called “Maverick” and it includes a Spot, Wash, and Hybrid fixtures. Depending on your needs you have a lot of options at your fingertips. Fixtures are powered by either a 440 or 480 watt engine and boast advanced optics, dazzling effects, and stunning output. You can choose from DMX, sACN, Art-Net, or W-DMX for control.

Fiilex

matrixWith the Matrix light, Fiilex brings its LED expertise into the realm of panel lighting. The Matrix leverages Fiilex’s Dense-Matrix technology by fusing multiple sources into a single panel-style fixture. The result combines the broad, diffuse throw of a panel with the power and controllability of a point source. Engineered with modularity in mind, the 1500W-equivalent Matrix works excellently on its own or grouped in an array of multiple lights.

The Matrix is built to easily accommodate various light-shaping accessories. To further soften its output, there’s the specially-designed Matrix Softbox. This unique softbox does away with the speed ring by attaching directly to the Matrix fixture via rod mounts. Alternatively, users looking for a greater punch can focus in the light with the Matrix Fresnel Lens, which clips simply into place, tripling intensity. The Matrix also features Fiilex’s professional-grade tuning options, which include full dimmability, color tunability from 2800 to 6500K, and hue control.

High End Systems

High End Quad LuminaireQuad & Hex further expand on the Uno and Shapeshifter technology by combining the two! The quad uses 4 Uno LED engines (RGBW) to create aerial effects. All 4 cells offer the ability to be individually controlled as well as X,Y controls of each cell. The Hex also uses the LED engines from the Uno but has six mounted in a linear fashion. Both units contain and Indigo Backlighter, while the Hex has a zoom range of 3.5 Degrees to 40 Degrees the Hex is 3.5 degrees to 70 degrees. Also on the floor was new software for the Hog lineup that allows integration with Lightware allowing for communications between both product lines, making for simpler setup of AV and lighting integration.

Lite Gear, Inc

Lite GearThe LiteGear LiteTile product line is a blend of LiteMat LED engines in an engineered textile housing. This unique form factor allows a user to install thin, soft, Hybrid light into previously unavailable areas. The LiteTile uses the new CineMitter LED which has 95+ CRI, and an extended CCT range from 2600K to 6000K . Each individual LiteTile (2‘x4‘ or 2‘x8‘) is finished with hook and loop Velcro® and can attach, or “tile” together to form any number of shapes and sizes. LiteTile can easily rig into existing grip or butterfly frames, or as an alternative, they can be used separately to attach to anything like a drop-ceiling or directly to a set wall. The unique shape of LiteTile allows the fixture to fold like a paper map into the size of a LiteMat 1. This unique folding method makes storage and transportation a breeze.
