Robe Show Lighting launched the "Funky" and the "Fusion" projectors–the latest in the company’s new Club and Bar (C&B) series of lighting fixtures. The series is aimed at smaller clubs, bars, restaurants and multi-purpose social environments and is designed to provide a dynamic range of effects with low maintenance.
Fusion and the Funky are effects projectors in the C&B series. The Fusion is a fully DMX controllable fixture that projects tight-focused flower shapes and other graphics effects in an array of colors. The Funky also creates multi-color flower effects, using a parabolic multi-color mirror reflector.
The Fusion has a series of new and original gobo designs and includes a parabolic mirror reflector that rotates in both directions for the creation of kaleidoscopic patterns. The combined gobo/color wheel has 14 positions plus open.
The Funky’s combined effects/gobo wheel includes seven static gobos, three beam reducers, and an open slot. Both its mirror reflector and effects-wheel have variable speed rotation in both directions.
The light source for both fixtures is a 250W halogen lamp with 1,000-hour lamp life. For full flexibility, Fusion and Funky also offer a strobe effect, 0-100% digital dimming, and auto or music-trigger modes. They use three DMX channels and can operate in either Master or Slave modes.
The expedient size and 7.5kg weight of the Fusion or Funky make them ideal for fitting where space is tight or in venues that have a low ceiling.
