Featured this year was the CreamSource Micro. The Creamsource Micro is less than half the size of the Creamsource Mini+, at just 8.66” x 8.7” x 3.94” (W x H x D), and weighing in at approximately 5.5 lbs. It features a rugged and waterproof design, with an IP65 rating which means it can be used in all weather. Light output is the same excellent quality as the rest of the Creamsource range, with color temperature adjustable from 2700 to 6500K and a CRI/TLCI of greater than 90. Drawing only 80W, it rivals the light output and punch typical of some 200W HMI Luminaires. Unlike most bi-color fixtures, the Micro maintains constant power output across the whole CCT range, so users always get the unit’s full potential, and there is no reason to have to choose between a bi-color or daylight system. Another key innovation of the Micro is its wide 10-32V operating voltage, allowing users to power the fixture from a single 90WH battery, or directly from a car. Shown here surviving the toughest conditions.
Fluotech released their additions to the Vegalux motorized zoom fresnel line at NABintroducing the 200HP and 200UHP versions with 60 and 80% more light output than the original version. The entire line is available in both tungsten and daylight color temperatures.
Not to be overlooked, the affordable Auralux 100 is a manual version of their LED Fresnel providing good light output for those who are looking for value or do not require motorized zooms.
Also on display were the Cinelight Studio is Fluotech's entry into the long throw soft LED panels on the market and of note, the new Starmaker weatherproof IP rated, bi-color panel.
Nila is now shipping their Varsa 2 fixture which is an IP65 rated, daylight LED fixture. The Varsa 2 draws 75W and can be powered from 100-240V AC or 10-18V DC sources. 5,600K single-color LEDs with a CRI of 90 and a TLCI of 86 are used in the Varsa 2. A range of holographic film, spread lenses are offered to provide beam shaping. With the 10-degree lens at 10ft the fixture delivers 500fc according to the manufacturer’s data sheets. Control is via easy to understand onboard buttons or wired DMX with RJ45 connectors.
The fixture is constructed of aluminum and provided with a yoke and junior pin/ baby receiver. The assembly weighs 11 pounds and the head is 8.25” long, 8.75” wide, and 13” high (including the yoke). A built-in Chimera mount is part of the design as well. Control and power connectors are provided with covers to maintain the IP rating when not in use. Finally, the unit is passively cooled (fanless) for silent operation.
