Robert Juliat profiles two new LED fixtures18 April 2012
For the second year running, Robert Juliat’s Prolight+Sound stand was almost entirely illuminated by LED fixtures, demonstrating how LED sources can simultaneously offer both cost and environmental benefits.
The stand previewed Robert Juliat’s two new products, TIBO and ZEP LED profiles, which are due for release later this year. TIBO and ZEP have evolved from the success of Robert Juliat’s award-winning LED profile released at PLASA 2010. Both are the result of a redesigned light source, designed and built entirely in-house, which gives an improved CRI and higher light output.
ZEP is the same size and form factor as the 600SX range and offers a maximum output and a low power consumption. Its 150W LED source gives a light output equivalent to a 1000W tungsten profile. It will be available in two colour temperatures: Warm White 3200K and Cool White 6000K and offers three zoom ranges compatible with the current zoom ranges of the popular 600SX Series tungsten profiles: 28°-54°, 16°-35° and 11°-26°.
Intensity can be controlled either locally or via DMX and its flicker-free PSU is cooled silently by convection so eliminating noise contamination which is an important consideration when working with cameras in television or film studios.
TIBO (pictured) presents a new design and offers a choice of multiple light sources. Its 75W LED source offers the same output as the 630 LED model but in a smaller, stylish unit. Its new optical device and die-cast aluminium body work have given rise to a design not possible with sheet metal and created a unit that is lighter and more compact than any others in the Robert Juliat range.
TIBO will be available in a choice of three colour temperatures: Warm White 3000K, Neutral White 4000K and Cool White (Daylight) 6500K to cover any application. It features an outstanding optical design that allows two different zoom ranges – from 15° to 45° – in one single unit.
Aimed at museums, churches and small schools, TIBO is a compact and custom-manufactured profile offering bespoke-coloured body works, making it a highly attractive product in technical, aesthetic and budgetary terms.
