ChauvetProfessional Nexus 4×4 is both a bold eye-candy and a tour-ready wash light that uses RGB COB LED technology, combined with a reflector that delivers a soft and visually pleasing light. From audience blinder effects, vibrant pixel-mapped eye-candy effects, to large-scale stage washers, Nexus 4×4 offers great rendering from off-axis viewing angles, and even field from the 16, 20-watt cells per panel. The fixture is set up to run in almost any system utilizing Art-Net, Kling-Net or DMX, with on-board power and data linking that can be used as an Art-Net to DMX converter. Nexus 4×4 utilizes integrated mounting hardware, which makes for an easy setup whether it’s one or an array of 100 fixtures.
ChauvetProfessional Legend 230SR Beam is a compact, lightweight, intensely bright moving head beam, built for touring, live events, television sets or clubs. Legend 230SR Beam has a tight 2.25-degree beam angle and houses a 230-watt Osram Sirius lamp, which makes this fixture strikingly bright at 96,000 lux at 15 meters. The incorporated high-quality glass optics and 8-facet rotating prism with zoom capabilities and motorized focus contribute to flawless hard-edged beams and energizing aerial effects accentuated by haze or fog. Operating at variable speeds, the trapezoidal 14-position (plus open) color wheel allows for better split colors and seamless transitions. Also featuring variable speeds, the gobo wheel has 17 gobos (plus open) for inspiring effects.
ChauvetProfessional Ovation F-165WW and Ovation E-190WW luminaires are designed specifically for theater and stage. Powered by 16 10-watt LEDs, Chauvet Professional Ovation F-165WW—the line’s Fresnel-style fixture—delivers over 1,730 lux at 5 meters (13 degrees), maintaining this intensity without a significant temperature-related drop off. The fixture has an easily adjustable motorized zoom and works exceptionally well with barn doors to aid in glare reduction and beam shaping. Knobs for local control of both dimming and zoom enable fast focus calls with or without a board-op. Its innovative LED source produces smooth, even washes from 9 to 52 degrees with a color temperature of 3100 K and a beautiful soft field. Selectable dimming curves and 16-bit dimming control make it compatible with older, traditional theater Fresnel lights. Powered by 19 10-watt LEDs, Chauvet Professional Ovation E-190WW—styled after the ellipsoidal spot fixtures—delivers over 3,446 lux at 5 meters (using the 26-degrees lens tube). Ovation E-190WW has standard beam shaping shutters, separate gobo and effect slots and lens barrels that are interchangeable with other ERS fixtures. It will be shipping with the option of 19, 26, 36 or 50-degree high-resolution lenses. Ovation E-190WW has a color temperature of 3100K, a beautiful flat field, 16-bit dimming control, allowing for smooth fades at the lowest levels.
Joining the Q-Series line of moving heads, Chauvet Professional Q-Wash 436Z-LED is a zooming LED wash powered by 36, 10-watt quad-colored RGBW LEDs. A versatile zoom of 17 to 39 degrees makes this unit appropriate for a wide variety of applications. Five sections of LED control and built-in color macros deliver stunning eye-candy effects and flicker-free dimming allows for on-camera use.
