• March 23, 2009
Palco 5 Full Color looks like other fixtures in the Palco line, but has the ability to create a new kind of look. The fixture uses REBEL LED, a light source with a maximum performance of 80 Lumens. There are 105 LEDs in a matrix of 35 lenses, each 9 watts of power, for a total brightness of 5,500 lumens. The space-efficient color mixing system mixes the red, blue and green Rebel LED with a choice of three different lenses: narrow, medium and wide.

• February 16, 2009
AC Lighting’s Chroma-Q Color Block 2 LED fixture adds new single color RGBA optics, 530 lumens output (almost double the original model) and theatrical grade dimming. With its increased color palette and CRI of 90, the Color Block 2 fixture can produce a wide range of colors and hues with built-in variable color temperature capability. Four LED cells offer performers less glare and can mix together for single color output, minimizing color separation shadows. The beam optics combine a soft asymmetrical quality for uplighting surfaces and a soft Fresnel-like edge for direct illumination. As modular as its predecessor but with close to twice the output, the Color Block 2 fixture can uplight a 6-meter set, and it can be used for its strobe-like intensity and control, or for theatrical grade dimming.
