Elation Professional introduces an innovative intelligent spot/wash moving head. The new Platinum Spot 5R emits an output comparable to a 575-watt fixture, yet it’s half the size, uses less than half the energy, and weighs half as much as a typical 250-watt fixture. It also moves faster on pan and tilt, as well as on color/gobo changes.
In comparison to a 250-watt fixture, the Platinum Spot 5R not only weighs 50% less, but emits twice the output, uses 25% less energy, while measuring 2/3 the size.
“This ability to obtain 575-watt-like brightness in such a small, fast, energy-efficient package is something that designers and lighting installers have constantly asked for,” says Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional. The Platinum Spot 5R represents such an advance in this direction, thanks in part to a new, breakthrough light source technology developed for Elation.
“We are proud to announce the development of a significantly brighter, smaller, faster, more lightweight, more energy-efficient feature-packed moving head, which we believe will set a new standard for the industry,” comments Loader. “The Platinum Spot 5R utilizes a brand-new, advanced light source technology that you really have to see to believe – we will be showing it for the first time at our LDI booth #703.”
“Our customers have constantly told us they wanted smaller size fixtures that are easier to pack up, transport and install in tight spaces,” adds Loader. “Everyone today is also wanting more output from their fixtures, while looking to save on power consumption and rising electric bills. With the Platinum Spot 5R, we have addressed these needs, while delivering the brightness, rich colors and all the other features users have come to demand in a professional-grade entry-level moving head.”
Among the Platinum Spot 5R’s many professional features is the ability to function as a Hybrid Spot/Wash effect, thanks to Variable Frost, which can be applied to soften and diffuse a hard-edge beam, giving the fixture greater versatility. Producing rich, saturated colors – with an especially vibrant Red – it includes eight dichroic colors, and eight rotating and 14 static gobos. The Platinum Spot 5R also features a Motorized Iris, Focus and Rotating Prism Effect. Along with its all-new light source technology, the Platinum Spot 5R incorporates superior optics for a flat, even light field.
