Elation Announces Plans for Prolight+Sound 2019

Elation Professional will be at this year’s Prolight+Sound show in Frankfurt. Making its world debut in Hall 12.1, D56-58 will be Elation’s 50,000-lumen Proteus Maximus, a Wash/Beam and Profile LED luminaire with a design package that premieres as the brightest LED profile on the market. With a custom designed 950W LED engine and large 180mm front lens, Maximus has the power to cut through at even great distances and its IP65 protection means it can be used exposed on outdoor shows.

Joining the powerful Proteus Maximus on the Elation stand is the brilliant 45,000-lumen Artiste Monet, a full-featured LED Profile offering outstanding projection quality, a comprehensive FX package, dynamic framing and a wide array of colours via an innovative SpectraColor engine. SpectraColor uses traditional CMY colours but adds variable RGB flags for rich and vibrant primary colours. In combination with variable CTO colour correction, the Monet produces colours that were previously impossible to achieve from theatrical pastels to the purest reds, blues or greens ever produced by a colour mixing system.

Also on display in the award-winning Elation Artiste line is the powerful Artiste Van Gogh, a state-of-the-art LED Wash luminaire with internal framing that excels at colour reproduction for colour projections of the highest quality. Housing CMY and CTO colour mixing as well as a 7-position colour wheel, it offers a choice of PC or Fresnel lenses and is the ideal partner to the profile luminaires in the Artiste range.

Elation will also be showing the Proteus RAYZOR 760, an IP65 version of the RAYZOR 760 LED wash effects luminaire with patent-pending SparkLED pixel effect technology. Compact yet powerful with super wide 5 to 77-degree zoom, the fixture’s seven oversized front lenses creates a large surface that is enhanced by SparkLED, 2W white LEDs strategically placed inside the lenses themselves to create a unique additional layer of effect.

Elation will introduce the IP65-rated version of the CMY color-mixing Smarty Hybrid, the Proteus Smarty Hybrid. This is the world’s first compact CMY hybrid fixture with true IP65 rating. Encompassing the same full feature set and using the same highly-efficient Platinum FLEX 200 lamp with exceptional 6000-hour lamp life, the Proteus Smarty Hybrid’s IP65 dust and water protection mean this compact and versatile effect can be used indoors or out.

Also showing is the Elation Smarty MAX, an extreme-output Spot/Beam/Wash hybrid moving head featuring a new Platinum FLEX 400 lamp rated at 480W with up to 4,000 hours of smart lamp life. Combining CMY and variable CTO, this is the world’s first hybrid incorporating a full iris for dynamic beam effects. Compact and lightweight with a large 160mm front aperture lens, four prisms on two planes, dual frosts plus dual gobo wheels and dual track animation round out the design package.
