USA is always considered as a country where everything is much bigger and this year, for the second time, we have come across something interesting and original, mainly because it is both small and multifunctional. Yesterday we saw Rosco’s Miro series and today we have Sniper 2R, one of the many products that Elation is presenting here at Las Vegas.
Sniper 2R is a fast, precise and powerful projector, able to simulate hybrid effects like scanners and lasers. It uses a MSD Platinum 2R 132 Watt/6,000 hours lamp, and can produce laser and cone waves, at really high speed. Its main functions also include the possibility of X/Y scan and Z rotation mirror system, 3 facet rotating prism, variable speed shutter / dimmer / strobe, 14 dichroic colors, 17 static gobos including beam reduction. It has maximum power consumption is 220W, and dimensions of only 361mm x 305mm, weighing 9.5kg.
The performance of the Sniper 2R is also impressive: it is, in fact, able to develop 45,000 LUX at 5m and up to 2,276 LUX at 25m. In conclusion it is an ideal alternative in terms of performance and dimensions, also with regards to the EDM market, which LDI is paying a lot of interest attention to.
