Altman – This year’s Altman booth was built around their core LED products.
Spectra Cycs and Chalice units provided wash and down light accents. New to the booth this year were a few notable products which include the Altman PHX1 150w, the Pegasus, and the recently released Gallery series fixtures.
The Altman PHX1 150w is the convection cooled version of the PHX2 250w. For those environments where fan noise is a deal breaker, the PHX1 150w solves this issue. The unit is available in all the same configurations as the PHX2 (RGBA, RGBW, 3k, 5k, 3k/5k variable) and with the same options for 5, 10, 19, 26, 36 and 50 degree barrels. The light output is comparable to slightly less than a HPL575 source.
Speaking of the HPL lamp, did you know you can convert many of your older Altman fixtures including the 65Q to an HPL source? If you have Altman fixtures that you would like to change over to HPL lamps, contact your Barbizon sales person to check if there is a retrofit kit available for your fixture.
For those who missed the Pegasus Fresnel last year, it was on display again this year. The Pegasus is a truly versatile fixture with its 15-85 degree zoom and ability to function as either a mains dim or DMX dim unit. The Pegasus is available in 2700k, 3000k, 4000k and 5000k. The 6” and 8” will take the standard 6” and 8” Fresnel accessories including barn doors and top hats that may already be in your stock.
Finally, the newest fixture to the booth was the new Gallery series. Available in a profile, beam wash or flood option and the standard variations of color temperatures. The profile units come in either a 15-35 degree or 25-50 degree zoom. The Gallery series provides a sleeker looking fixture for those museum or upscale architectural projects. Dimming options include mains dim, DMX/RDM, 0-10v or DALI. The Gallery series can be used along with Altman’s Smart Track or in a portable, pendant or surface mount set up.
