CycOut

Blizzard Lighting's Cyc Out RGBW fixture does double duty as both a cyc light and a strobe. The Cyc Out comes fitted with 256 (64x R/G/B/W) 3W LEDs with a 60-degree beam angle. Just like classic strobe fixtures, the light is projected forward and enhanced by a parabolic reflector (rather than directly forward, like most LED strobes). The fixture's beam angle can be shaped using the equipped two leaf barn doors, plus, the strobe rate, intensity, and duration of the pulse are all fully controllable in both standalone and DMX modes. The multi-mode strobe functions include dual zone control and individual strobe rates for each color, plus separate duration and rate controls for impressive, xenon-like blinder effects, all without the need for gel.

Meet Cyc Out. Now, meet “CYC-OUT.” By day, a flexible, graceful cyc light. By night, a punch-your-lights out, fully-loaded RGBW color mixing strobe. It was going to be called “JekyllandHydeoled,” but someone already took that name. The Cyc Out’s multi-mode strobe functions include dual zone control and individual strobe rates for each color, plus separate duration and rate controls for impressive, xenon-like blinder effects, all without the need for gel (or mousse).

 The fixture’s dual-zone color control also creates smooth, wide color gradients from a single source, making it a unique secret weapon for lighting designers.

Dragging the whole room down into a serious nerd/marketing type discussion, Blizzard’s Will Komassa remarked, “Cyc Out™ is that rare product that is perfectly suited for two very different applications.” Then, sensing he was losing the audience, he noted, “As a color-changing strobe, it does a very capable ‘impression’ of xenon strobes, can layer strobes of different colors and rates, and is eye-popping, to say the least. As a cyc light, the even field and long throw at narrow angles are among the best I’ve seen. And the dual-color gradient effects? Those are really a game changer.”

Cyc Out™ fixtures come with an easy-to-use control panel with a Micro OLED display with 4x touch sensitive buttons, power switch, 3/5-pin XLR in/out connections, a mounting bracket with stabilizers for free standing position flexibility, and a powerCON® compatible AC power input connector. The Cyc Out™ is backed by Blizzard's 2-year warranty.
