CHAUVET Professional will be introducing products at Prolight + Sound that open even more creative possibilities for lighting designers. Visitors to the CHAUVET Professional Prolight + Sound Hall 4 Stand F55 will get a first-hand look at the new Maverick Storm 1 Wash, an IP65-rated LED moving fixture; the STRIKE P38, an IP65-rated compact warm white LED blinder/strobe; and the COLORado Solo Batten, an IP65 RGBAW LED batten.

“The new fixtures allow us to offer more versatility in three very important series of products that designers have come to depend on,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “With its IP65 rating, the Maverick Storm 1 Wash is ideal for lighting festivals, amphitheaters, and other outdoor venues.  The compact housing of the new STRIKE P38 gives it even more versatility than its predecessor the STRIKE 1, while the COLORado Solo Batten creates more options in eye-candy batten wash lighting.”

Here are more details about the three new fixtures that will be leading CHAUVET Professional’s product introductions at Frankfurt:

The Maverick Storm 1 Wash from Chauvet Maverick Storm 1 Wash
This IP65-rated RGBW Osram LED moving head is the first of its kind to join the award-winning Maverick series. The unit’s rugged die-cast aluminum housing and 316 stainless steel external screws enable it to withstand the harshest elements. With an output of over 6,000 lumens, its customized optics are well suited for audience and aerial washing, even at large venues. Pixel-mapping effects and a zoom range of 11° to 42° further add to the unit’s versatility, and a virtual gobo wheel with background colors creates an array of immersive atmospheric effects. 16-bit dimming of master dimmer and individual colors results in smooth fades, and the RDM-enabled fixture can be controlled via DMX, W-DMX, sACN, and Art-Net.

The Strike P38 from Chauvet will debut at Prolight + SoundSTRIKE P38
This outdoor-ready single IP65-rated pod blinder has been designed in a more compact housing than its STRIKE 1 predecessor. Its small size notwithstanding, it has the output that has made the STRIKE series famous, thanks to its 90W warm white LED source. As a result of its compact housing, designers will be able to unleash their creativity and arrange this intense fixture in a greater variety of configurations. This multi-formatted fixture can be used as a wash, audience light, strobe, or blinder. Features include simulated “amber shift” that mimics incandescent dimming; adjustable Pulse Width Modulation control, making the fixture camera friendly; black cast aluminum housing; and DMX as well as RDM protocols.

COLORado Solo Batten
Complementing the COLORado Solo PARs, this one-of-a-kind batten projects a single homogenized wash with smooth color-mixing, giving it the appearance of a single bar of light without round “eyes” or pixel visibility.  The COLORado Solo Batten is engineered with 12 individually controllable square sections that appear seamlessly together without separation, but can also create an endless variety of color control and pixel mapping effects. The unit is IP65 rated and equipped with DMX and RDM protocols.
