Elation Professional starts shipping Proteus Rayzor 760

Elation Professional Proteus Rayzor 1960 high-output LED wash and FX light is now shipping.

With the power to handle long-throw applications, Proteus Rayzor 1960 is a part of Elation Professional’s Proteus line of IP65 luminaires for use under adverse conditions and in any environment.

Proteus Rayzor 1960 is the brightest IP65 fixture in its class. Driven by 19 60W RGBW LEDs — all independently controllable — the fixture produces an intense and well-defined beam of over 18000 lumens. It can zoom tight to 5° for a very narrow collimated beam or spread wide to 55° for even stage coverage. A unique ‘Zoom Overdrive’ allows the zoom to move past the optical system’s narrowest point, providing extremely narrow collimated beams for impressive aerial effects and extra punch.

The unit’s RGBW colour mixing offers a wide range of saturated colours and pastel shades and a number of unique colour macros are included for programming convenience. The fixture comes with a selection of linear colour temperature presets from 2,700-8,000K which combined with the abundance of colour possibilities makes the Proteus Rayzor 1960 an excellent colour matching unit. Dimming of the LED engine is smooth and stepless with variable 16-bit dimming curve modes available to suit any application. 

With its 19 cells and large diameter front lens, designers can use its individual pixel control to create a variety of aesthetically unique eye candy looks, a design element that decorates any stage and looks great on camera. The oversized front lenses create a large surface that is enhanced by Elation’s exclusive SparkLED technology, the same SparkLED system you find in Rayzor 760 and Rayzor Blade ranges. SparkLED is 76 individual 2W white LEDs embedded in the front lenses which can be animated over internal effects or via DMX. The sparkle effect can also work as a stand-alone effect in its own right, giving designers the opportunity to fill idle space with something more inspiring. SparkLED is unique to Elation luminaires and is controllable via the lighting console or driven by a multitude of internal FX patterns.

In addition to its powerful wash, stunning mid-air and enhanced effects, and despite being an IP65 fixture, the Proteus Rayzor 1960 offers continuous 360° pan & tilt rotation, another layer of dynamic effect from this versatile fixture. The unit can spin continuously, and at variable speeds, to add an energising look to any show.

Combining the powerful LED output with SparkLED while utilising the 360° movement opens up for a multitude of design possibilities from wide stage washes or mid-air beams to more subtle effects for mood generation, both off and on camera, indoors or out. Housing professional control and IP-rated connection features, the Proteus Rayzor 1960 not only takes stage and production designs to a new level, it does it in a low profile form as it measures only 370mm by 468mm by 582mm.
