Jacob Coakley

Chauvet Professional’s new Ovation E-260WW is designed to be the brightest ellipsoidal on the market, with an output that exceeds an HPL 750W ellipsoidal.

The Ovation E-260WW has been designed to produce a warm even field of light, with a slight center peak, making it ideal for both crisp well-defined gobo projection, and for blending in stage wash applications. Adding to its versatility, the fixture works with all Ovation lenses as well as all standard ellipsoidal lenses from other suppliers.

The Elation Fuze family of wash lights. (Not to scale.)

Elation Professional Launches Fuze Series of Dynamic Wash Lights

Jacob Coakley

Elation Professional’s new Fuze Series of dynamic LED wash lights use single-lens RGBW COB LEDs to deliver an extremely homogenized field of light in a wide palette of colors. The series consists of two IP65-rated PAR fixtures (the Fuze PAR Z60 IP and the Fuze PAR Z120 IP) and two moving head fixtures (the Fuze Wash Z120 and the Fuze Wash Z350). All fixtures use a single source RGBW for color mixing gives fully premixed color looks and an extremely flat field of light. With a lens face that appears as one color instead of individual LED diodes, the Fuze Series fixtures create a non-pixelated look and can wash a surface or subject without the multi-shadows created from traditional LED wash fixtures. All Fuze Series fixtures include a wide zoom angle range for more precise beam control, full 100% electronic dimming, variable dimming curves and high-speed strobe. The Fuze PAR’s feature an optional gel frame / barn door / snoot holder as well.
