CHAUVET® Professional Nexus™ 4x4 is both a bold eye-candy and a tour-ready wash light that uses RGB COB LED technology, combined with a reflector that delivers a soft and visually pleasing light.

The fixture is set up to run in almost any system utilizing Art-Net, Kling-Net or DMX, with on-board power and data linking that can be used as an Art-Net to DMX converter. Nexus™ 4x4 utilizes integrated mounting hardware, which makes for an easy setup whether it’s one or an array of 100 fixtures.
CHAUVET® Professional Legend™ 230SR Beam is a compact, lightweight, intensely bright moving head beam, built for touring, live events, television sets or clubs. Legend™ 230SR Beam has a tight 2.25-degree beam angle and houses a 230-watt Osram Sirius lamp, which makes this fixture strikingly bright at 96,000 lux at 15 meters. The incorporated high-quality glass optics and 8-facet rotating prism with zoom capabilities and motorized focus contribute to flawless hard-edged beams and energizing aerial effects accentuated by haze or fog. Operating at variable speeds, the trapezoidal 14-position (plus open) color wheel allows for better split colors and seamless transitions. Also featuring variable speeds, the gobo wheel has 17 gobos (plus open) for inspiring effects.
CHAUVET® Professional Ovation™ F-165WW and Ovation™ E-190WW luminaires are designed specifically for theater and stage. Powered by 16 10-watt LEDs, CHAUVET® Professional Ovation™ F-165WW—the line’s Fresnel-style fixture—delivers over 1,730 lux at 5 meters (13 degrees), maintaining this intensity without a significant temperature-related drop off. The fixture has an easily adjustable motorized zoom and works exceptionally well with barn doors to aid in glare reduction and beam shaping. Knobs for local control of both dimming and zoom enable fast focus calls with or without a board-op. Its innovative LED source produces smooth, even washes from 9 to 52 degrees with a color temperature of 3100 K and a beautiful soft field. Selectable dimming curves and 16-bit dimming control make it compatible with older, traditional theater Fresnel lights. Powered by 19 10-watt LEDs, CHAUVET® Professional Ovation™ E-190WW—styled after the ellipsoidal spot fixtures—delivers over 3,446 lux at 5 meters (using the 26-degrees lens tube). Ovation™ E-190WW has standard beam shaping shutters, separate gobo and effect slots and lens barrels that are interchangeable with other ERS fixtures. It will be shipping with the option of 19, 26, 36 or 50-degree high-resolution lenses. Ovation™ E-190WW has a color temperature of 3100K, a beautiful flat field, 16-bit dimming control, allowing for smooth fades at the lowest levels.
Joining the Q-Series™ line of moving heads,CHAUVET® Professional Q-Wash™ 436Z-LED is a
zooming LED wash powered by 36, 10-watt quad-colored RGBW LEDs. A versatile zoom of 17 to 39 degrees makes this unit appropriate for a wide variety of applications. Five sections of LED control and built-in color macros deliver stunning eye-candy effects and flicker-free dimming allows for on-camera use.
CHAUVET® Professional COLORado™ 4 IP is a versatile batten built to provide the richest colors indoors or outdoors. Featuring a silent operation and stunning color mixing COLORado™ 4 IP has four powerful 40-watt quad-colored RGBW LEDs for a great output of 3,600 lux at 5 meters with low-profile footprint, making this an ideal unit to use as a high-impact wash light or blinder. The incorporation of white LEDs widens the color palette — color temperature range of 3,200 to 10,000K — while 15-degree lenses produce a powerful punch of homogenized color. Individual pixel programming and 16-bit dimming enhance the visual impact of this IP66-rated resilient fixture. A removable yoke also functions as a mounting bracket for stacking an array of up to four units that maintain a perfect pixel pitch.
