HES Ships Studio Command Fixture

  • 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.
