ROSE BRAND/REFLECTMEDIA CHROMATTE

Rose Brand is the US distributor of Chromatte by Reflecmedia. It is a keying tool that uses retro-reflectivity in film, television, and video applications. It includes a Chromatte Curtain and an LED LiteRing. The curtain, assembled from over 70,000 beads of glass per square inch, reflects light directly back along the light's axis of origin. The LED LiteRing, mounted on the lens of the camera, projects a tight bandwidth of blue or green directional light onto the curtain. In turn, the curtain reflects it directly back to the camera lens. From any other point of view, the curtain appears gray, but what the camera sees is a bright, even keying color.

MARTIN PROFESSIONAL STAGE CYCLO

Stage Cyclo is a new luminaire for the stage, studio, and event lighting market. Adapted from Martin Architectural's Cyclo, it is designed for installation in theatres and television studios and can be hung and re-hung like regular touring products. It features four 54W high-output fluorescent tubes in red, green, blue, and white for full color mixing. A double parabolic louvre reflector provides maximum output and even illumination. In its standard finish, the beam angle is approximately 55°. Brackets have been attached on both the ends and at the rear of the housing to accept Martin's Omega bracket system. Successive fixtures can be mounted as close as possible to each other to ensure an even distribution. For floor mounting, it comes with built-in retractable legs. XLR connectors are included, both in 3-pin and 5-pin formats. The fixture is directly DMX addressable via a dipswitch panel. Accessories, available soon, will include acrylic covers for applications that require a completely diffused light source and manual barndoors.

MOLE-RICHARDSON CO. TYPE 6741 5KW TUNGSTEN PAR

Mole-Richardson Co. introduces Hollywood's first dedicated 5kW tungsten PAR. This fixture is based on the design characteristics of the 4kW HMI PAR but with a conventional 5,000W incandescent source. Unlike traditional 5kW luminaires, it uses a specifically designed GE 5kW tungsten halogen lamp intended for axial operation. By placing the lamp on its side and using a highly polished parabolic reflector, it is able to achieve output comparable to a standard 14' 10kW Fresnel. When used with the interchangeable lenses, the field of light can be adjusted for optimum beam control. In addition to the standard onboard 5kW switch and the 60A stage connector, the fixture has visual and tactile focal indicators to determine lamp position.

OSRAM SHARXS HTI LAMPS

OSRAM SharXS HTI series of double-ended metal halide lamps are specially designed for special effects and entertainment lighting applications. The 200W, 400W, 575W, 700W, and 1200W versions all have a 135-mm overall length dimension, making them upgradeable into OEM fixtures with similar footprints. The HTI lamps have eXtreme Seal (XS) technology for improved thermal management up to 450∞C and a short arc; they deliver exceptional brightness, operate at peak efficiency, and withstand greater thermal stress than conventional types. With standardization of SharXS HTI lamps, fixture manufacturers now only need to adapt the control gear optics and thermal allowances for fixtures to meet various applications. Special pre-focus bases allow the lamps to be quickly and precisely mounted in the lamp holders. With appropriately designed fixtures, the HTI lamps produce more light than comparable lamps of the same wattage.

For studios and theatres, Philips has developed the Ceramic ST 250 HR lamp system. This system needs four times less power to achieve the same light output when compared to halogen lamps. It also produces four times less heat, so less cooling is needed, and the working environment is more comfortable. As a result, smaller fixtures can be used. The Ceramic ST lamp has an excellent color rendering and a color temperature of 3200K. The lifespan of the lamp is eight times longer than halogen.

Large coils and long coils are available. It can be cut to size and electrically connected using hand tools. Unique shapes are possible. It is made in two basic colors: green/blue and white, but color overlays are available in green, magenta, yellow, red, blue, and orange. Lamps are complemented by patented UL-listed, CE-compliant power supplies, as well as dimming and flashing control modules. Since this is a field of light instead of a point source, it appears brighter to high definition cameras. This allows for much lower brightness settings and longer lamp life when used with a high definition camera.
