ADJ has revealed its new range of Encore Profile Pro professional LED-powered ellipsoidal fixtures, complete with a wide selection of lens options. Ideal for theatres and other performance spaces looking to embrace the power-saving and heat-reducing benefits of LED, without compromising on performance or features, two models are available. The Encore Profile Pro WW has a powerful warm white LED engine, while the Encore Profile Pro Color offers full colour mixing from a 6-in-1 LED source.
The Encore Profile Pro WW features a potent 260W warm white LED light source with a colour temperature of 3200K. It generates an even field of light, with no hot spot, and boasts a high CRI in excess of 97. When used with a 26° lens, it measures a total light output of 10,000 lumens, while the LED engine has an average lifespan of 50,000 hours.
The Encore Profile Pro Color utilises a 250W 6-in-1 RGBWAL LED engine, which also boasts an impressive 50,000 hour average operational life. Through independent dimming control of the red, green, blue, white, amber and lime LED elements, this fixture can be used to generate a huge gamut of colours ranging from vibrant primaries to subtle hues. It can also be used to generate colour-corrected white light, with a macro function providing easy selection of a range of different Kelvin colour temperatures. It has a light output of 6,000 lumens (measured with a 26° lens) and offers a CRI in excess of 90.
These robust and reliable fixtures can be used with ADJ’s range of interchangeable lens tubes, however they have an industry-standard design and can therefore also be used with any existing ellipsoidal lenses and accessories that a theatre, production company or rental house may already own. Both models support B size metal or HT transparency GOBOs and feature a four-blade manual framing shutter system as well as manual focus adjustment. They offer smooth 0-100% digital dimming and variable speed strobing. The LED refresh rate can also be adjusted for TV/film work and a number of different dimming curves can be selected to suit varied applications.
Both fixtures offer a choice of DMX channel modes; 1, 3 or 4 for the Encore Profile Pro WW and 6, 9 or 12 for the Encore Profile Pro Color. DMX addressing and mode selection is handled via an intuitive LED menu screen on the rear of each unit, while 5-pin input and output sockets are provided for the DMX signal. Locking power input and output connectors are also located on the rear panel, which can be used to link together the power supply for up to 3 fixtures at 120V (8 at 240V). Finally, a USB port has also been included to allow easily installation of future firmware upgrades.
Measuring 27.1” x 111.3” x 17.7” / 688mm x 287mm x 450mm (length, including lens / width / height), the Encore Profile Pro WW and Encore Profile Pro Color have similar dimensions to a conventional ellipsoidal fixture. Both fixtures weigh 20.0 lbs. (9.1 kg) and feature a sturdy hanging bracket and convenient rear handle.
ADJ’s complementary EP range of high quality ellipsoidal lenses feature precision designed and engineered optics to deliver excellent sharpness and an even field. Fixed lens tubes with beam angles of 14°, 19°, 26°, 36° and 50° are available.
“We are excited to extend ADJ’s range of theatrical lighting products with the introduction of the new Encore Profile Pro ellipsoidals,” commented ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “They are ideal for theatres and other entertainment venues looking to upgrade their stage lighting with industry standard fixtures that offer all of the benefits of an LED light source. Not only do these units require significantly less power than comparable conventional fixtures and remove the need for regular lamp replacement, they generate less heat and have an even field with no gel/filter-damaging hot spots. The Encore Profile Pro WW and Encore Profile Pro Color offer a fantastic price-to-feature ratio and we expect them to prove extremely popular in both the theatrical and house of worship markets.”
The Encore Profile Pro WW and Encore Profile Pro Color, as well as the EP range of lens tubes, are shipping now from ADJ distributors and dealers worldwide.
