Following a number of successful field trials, GLP’s GT-1 hybrid luminaire is released and has begun shipping and works as a Beam, Spot, and Wash fixture. It incorporates a new 440W Osram discharge lamp that improves the output, while its optical system produces a beam that features a wide 22:1 ratio zoom range from 3.5° to 57°. Full-feature functionality is available at any time, with no optical lens changes required.

The GT-1 offers a CMY color mixing, eight rotating gobos, 14 fixed pattern gobos, additional beam reduction gobos, and wide range of effects including a variable speed animation wheel that can be repositioned, and continuously rotated, within the beam. The GT-1 also features three rotating prisms, and a fixed color wheel with color correction filters, further widening the color palette.

In its narrowest Beam mode, the GT-1 produces a near parallel beam of light at 3.5° through its large 145mm diameter front lens, which remains bright and consistent over long distances. As there are no physical changes, full functionality remains in the GT-1 while delivering these beam effects. In its widest Wash mode, the GT-1 produces a soft-edged beam from a variable filter that can be inserted into the beam to give the desired level of wash required.

The GLP GT-1 also features GLP’s signature baseless design, full
16-bit pan and tilt movement, full range dimming and shuttering capability, an inbuilt battery for fixture setup, an auto sensing power supply and a low weight of just 55 lbs.—in all producing a hugely versatile fixture for a wide range of applications.
