Elation Professional: Dartz 360

by Michael Eddy

Launched at the PLASA 2017 show, the new Dartz 360™ from Elation, is a unique, full color-mixing LED beam/spot fixture with gobos and effects that gives all new projection possibilities from a narrow-beam luminaire. A single-source 50W RGB LED engine produces a powerful and tight 3-degree beam for smooth, color-mixed beam effects similar to a discharge lamp. Extremely bright for its wattage and size, a combined LED engine source/optics package provides better field and brighter output than previous multi-chip LED “beam” solutions. The Dartz 360 is also compact and phenomenally fast with continuous 360° pan and tilt movement added to the gobos, dual prisms, frost, and remote focus.

This demo lightshow was programmed by Frank Schotman in Elation's Europe showroom highlights some of the key features of the Dartz 360.

The Artiste Dali from Elation Professional won a 2017 PLASA Award for InnovationAlso introduced at PLASA 2017 was the new Artiste Dali™, a full-featured moving head with innovative LED / Laser Phosphor light engine that gives greater spot and beam capabilities from one fixture. The Artiste Dali was one of two Elation products to win a 2017 PLASA Awards for Innovation. (The Elation Proteus Hybrid also won a PLASA Award for Innovation.) 

The Artiste Dali is designed with a unique hybrid light engine that combines a 300-watt LED source and 100-watt Laser Phosphor source for improved spot/beam functionality. The Laser Phosphor source produces a denser beam with a level of brightness not possible with LED alone. By combining the two sources, users get a spot with extra punch (15,000 lumens) in an energy-efficient solution. Features include eFly wireless DMX, CMY+CTO variable color mixing, color wheel, rotating and static gobos, prisms, animation, zoom and frost. Combined with the powerful new LED/Laser Phosphor engine, the Artiste Dali provides the latest technology and professional performance to fit into a variety of applications and designs.
