The new ColorDash Par Q12 IP from Chauvet Professional is an RGBA LED wash that delivers bright, colorful, flicker-free light indoors or out, regardless of weather conditions, thanks to its IP65, outdoor/wet rating (pressure equalizing M12 GORE valve), Powerkon IP65 power cord and IP-rated DMX connections. In addition its IP rating, the ColorDash Par Q12 IP offers designers and production companies intense output and realistic color rendering. Powered by 12 8.4-watt RGBA LEDs, the latest addition to the ColorDash line has an output of 865 lux at 5 meters. It also has a color temperature range of 2800 to 10000 K, and its advanced optics result in effective color mixing.

More info from Chauvet Professional:

The ColorDash Par Q12 IP has selectable smooth dimming curves, designed to eliminate choppy fades, and a 20⁰ beam angle, which provides broad wash coverage. The fixture’s adjustable PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) results in a flicker-free output, making it well suited for lighting events that are going to be videoed.

A double bracket yoke allows the versatile ColorDash Par Q12 IP to be flown on truss or be positioned on the floor. The fixture’s compact size makes it handy for applications where stage space is at a premium.

The ColorDash Par Q12 IP has an OLED full text display with password protection and a touchscreen interface. Along  with the fixture’s direct power and DMX connections, this feature will make setup and tear down go faster and more smoothly. Anyone who works outdoors should appreciate this added convenience, because like the weather itself, scheduling at festivals and other open air projects can often be unpredictable.
