LOS ANGELES – From modular chandeliers to glowing columns of light, the Event Cylinder from Elation Professional will inspire lighting professionals to take their designs to new creative realms. A battery-powered RGB LED fixture, the Event Cylinder is a one-foot-diameter (304 mm) transparent tubular-shaped color-changing unit whose uses are limited only by the imagination.
The Event Cylinder can go just about anywhere. The fixture is battery powered and wirelessly controlled. With an IP65 rating, the compact, lightweight unit can withstand any type of weather.
When fully charged, the Event Cylinder’s battery will last 12 hours, so it can be run all night (or day) long. Then the battery can be re-charged and ready to go again in six hours.
The Event Cylinder is available in two control-type versions: Wireless DMX; and RF with Wireless Remote included. The 13-watt Wireless DMX model (Event Cylinder DMX) is powered by 72 Tri-Color RGB LEDS. The 10-watt RF Model (Event Cylinder RF) contains 48 Tri-Color RGB LEDs. The units’ Tri-Color LED Technology allows RGB color-mixing to be done inside each individual lamp, providing smoother blended colors and eliminating the red, green and blue shadows often associated with single color LEDs.
The Wireless DMX version of the Event Cylinder can be operated in 4 different DMX modes: 1, 3, 4 and 6 channels. Additionally, both models feature Sound Active and Master-Slave Modes.
Both versions of the Event Cylinder measure 12”L x 12”W x 7.25”H /304 x 304 x 183 mm, and weigh 7.25 lbs. / 3.2 kg.
“The Event Cylinder is a highly original LED fixture that offers endless design possibilities,” said Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional.
Designed by Port Lighting Systems and built by Elation, the Event Cylinder is the product of two years of research and development, added Loader. “Elation is committed to constantly giving our customers fresh, new design tools to work with, and the Event Cylinder is a perfect example,” he said. “Our customers have already used it at events ranging from a beach party to a corporate banquet, and we look forward to hearing about all the creative new design applications they will find for it.”
