High End Systems Inc. (HES) is launching the new Studio Command automated wash luminaire. The fixture is now shipping from the company's Austin, TX, headquarters.
Studio Command, now the fourth automated wash fixture in the HES family, offers lighting professionals a "command performance" in the most demanding events, be it in the theatrical, corporate, concert touring, house of worship markets or any other show or installation requiring a powerful wash fixture.
Studio Command uses a patented lenticular array optical system that greatly enhances the homogeneity of the projected light. The optical head is compact and light in weight, while still offering a large diameter exiting beam. The proven long-life MSR 700 lamp emitting 55,000 lumens (at 5900K) is shipped as a standard complement providing deep and powerful reds. Alternatively the MSR 700/2 lamp emitting 55,000 lumens (at 7200K) can also be fitted in the field. The CMY dichroic color-mixing system provides rapid and quiet color changes, and the mechanical douser provides a smooth fade to black.
Also unique is the appearance of the beam itself. The 8.25-inch output beam is full and vibrant and takes on a searchlight effect look, as the output lens is positioned relatively close to both the pan and tilt axes.
The moving yoke fixture features an adjustable field angle from 18 to 32 degrees. It also offers a variable mechanical and electronic strobe, with extra punch provided by the Light Burst effect.
Studio Command boasts a new industrial design that sets it apart from other products in its class. The design takes on a sharp bold, new look influenced by today's industrial styles of motor vehicles, robotics and industrial machines.
