Chauvet moves into install market6 December 2006
Chauvet Lighting’s new Q Series range of high specification installation effects and moving heads includes an expanding range of mirror and barrel scanners, moving yoke spots and washes from 150W through to 575W. Intended for high-end club install applications, the Q-Spot 575 is said to offer "striking" colours, motorised focus, vector movement, full range dimming and 16-bit resolution.
The 16-channel unit is fitted with a 575W HMI lamp boasting a life expectancy of up to 1,000 hours and incorporates a head design which allows movement within a 540_ (pan) and 270_ (tilt) range. The colour wheel offers eight solid dichroic colours, one split colour and one quad colour – plus white – and is capable of producing bi-directional rainbow spins. Multiple gobos can be morphed to produce a myriad of scenic effects and the Q-Spot 575 comes fitted with 15 gobos (including three glass), plus another five spares.
The full Q Series currently includes Q-Spot 575, Q-Spot 250, Q-Wash250, Q-Spot 150, Q-Mix, Q-Scan & Q-Roll 250s and Q-Scan & Q-Roll 150s.
Chauvet has also introduced its latest flagship Legend Series models offering enhanced dimmer/shutter functions, accelerated colour and gobo changes and increased flexibility in pan and tilt movements.
