CHAUVET Professional makes it possible to cover a wider area with an even colored wash on indoor and outdoor stages. The company’s new IP65 rated COLORado Panel Q40 features a magnetic flood filter that produces a very wide, but still even wash. Powered by 40 15-watt RGBW LEDs, the rectangular wash fixture has a bright output (up to 9,480 lux at 5 meters) and creates perfectly smooth edge-to edge color mixing. An adjustable beam angle of 15° or 24° adds to its versatility.

“We developed the COLORado Panel Q40 in response to the demand on the part of designers for a reliable IP65 rated wash with a wide coverage area that could be used at amphitheaters, festivals, and similar outdoor venues without sacrificing color quality,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “The bright output of the COLORado Panel Q40 also makes it well-suited for outdoor applications.”

Ruggedly constructed, the COLORado Panel Q40 measures 20.27 x 7.71 x 11.96 inches (515 x 196 x 304 mm) and weighs 28.2 lbs. (12.8 kg), making it efficient to setup and transport. Its outdoor rated power and data connectors can be connecting quickly and easily without the need for propriety cabling.

The user-friendly wash fixture can be controlled via DMX, WDMX, and RDM. It has a color temperature range of 2,800K to 10,000K and selectable Pulse Width Modulation that avoids flickering when lighting productions that will be video recorded.

“We’re excited about this light,” said Chauvet. “The popularity of festivals has created a growing demand for outdoor rated wash fixtures that also offer the coverage area and color mixing that designers have a right to expect., and that’s what the COLORado Panel Q40 gives them.”
