Chauvet several new items which they released at Prolight + Sound (they, unfortunately, were unable to bring the fixture with them to NAB)—the new Chauvet MK3 profile and spot units.
The MK3 Profile has almost 4 times the amount of lumens as the MK2—51,000 source lumens to be exact. CT is 7,441K with a CRI of 91.2 with filter (CRI is 73 without). It has a large zoom range of 6 to 54 degrees. Similar to the MK2 it has an advanced shutter system however, with a 120-degree rotation. Color mixing includes CMY and CTO, along with a 6 color flag wheel. For gobos, there are 7 rotating glass and 9 static. Other features include an effects wheel, two frost flags, fast 9:1 iris, 3 facet and 5 facet prisms. The MK3 Spot is similar to the Profile with a couple of exceptions. They replace the framing shutters with a 3rd gobo wheel (rotating) and the Spot includes a 5 facet linear and 5 facet round prism wheel.
For highlights on-set or for the control/edit rooms, Chauvet Professional’s Ovation FTD-55WW is a track mounted, warm white LED (3-inch) “inkie” Fresnel-style fixture. This fixture projects a bright, beautifully soft field of light within a 30º – 69º field angle controlled by a manual zoom allowing you to add light where needed. A barn door for the fixture is included to help shape the light and direct the light.
