The Platinum Beam 5R Extreme and EZ6 LED Video Panel are a few of the Elation items to check out during the PLASA Focus show.

Looking for more user-friendly LED video panels or lighting design software?  Faster and smaller RGBW LED moving heads?  Or extreme ACL beam effects that are even more extreme? Then stop by Elation Professional’s display at PLASA Focus: Orlando, held here at the Wyndham Orlando Resort, May 15-16.

Elation will be showing exciting new products that address these and other hot lighting/video trends at its PLASA Focus Booth #520:

EZ6 LED Video Panel – Adding the professional look of an LED video wall has just gotten “EZ-er.”  The EZ6 is a high-resolution 22.7” x 22.7” indoor video display panel, powered by premium Tri-Color 3528 SMD LEDs, that delivers a 6mm pixel pitch, 1,800-nit brightness and 960 Hz refresh rate, allowing it to produce sharp, clear high-definition graphics, text, logos and images. Yet it is also very affordably priced, light weight and easy to assemble, making it the ideal choice for nightclubs, concert venues, live stages and exhibit halls – anyone who wants the excitement of a video screen without overstepping their budget or having to undertake a complicated installation.

Rayzor 7 and Rayzor 12 – Ramp up your designs into the next gear with the amazing Rayzor Series. The smallest and fastest LED moving head ever created by Elation, the Rayzor 7 delivers unsurpassed brightness for its size (11 lbs., 9.25” x 5.5” x 12.5”), a razor-sharp 7° beam angle, smooth Quad-Color RGBW color-mixing, and new high-speed 3-phase motor technology that makes its eye-popping beams literally fly around the room.  Powered by 7 x 15-watt OSRAM 4-in1 (red, green, blue, white) LEDs, the Rayzor 7 also offers the bonus of 4-zone chase effects for added visual excitement.  For applications that require greater output, Elation has introduced a more powerful version, the Rayzor 12, with 12 x 15-watt 4-in-1 RGBW LEDs that can produce up to 5,840 lux at 5 meters.  The Rayzor 12 features the compact size, lightning-quick movements, sharp 7° beam, smooth Quad-Color mixing and zonal chase effects that characterize this groundbreaking series, along with some great new features such as a rainbow effect.

Platinum Beam 5R Extreme – The original Platinum Beam 5R ACL beam moving head was one of the most popular and widely acclaimed effects in Elation’s history—now the company is building on its success with the next-generation Platinum Beam 5R Extreme.  Like its predecessor, the new “Extreme” is an intense concentrated searchlight-like narrow-beam (3°) effect that utilizes the Philips MSD Platinum 5R lamp, allowing for much greater energy-efficiency and a more compact, lightweight design compared to discharge fixtures of equivalent output.  But the Platinum Beam 5R Extreme moves at even faster speeds than the original and achieves new levels of brightness and output, thanks to the use of 3-phase motors and an improved optical design.  It also offers some exciting new features, including a remote focus and a wireless DMX option.

Capture Lighting Design Software – Elation is now giving lighting pros an easier way to design and visualize their lightshows.  The company has entered into an agreement with Sweden-based Capture Visualisation AB, to distribute Capture lighting design and documentation software in the U.S. Available for both Windows and Mac OS X, Capture software is world-renowned for being easy to use and having a minimal learning curve, while giving lighting professionals the ability to work in real-time with all elements of their design—lighting, truss system, stage and scenery.  Featuring a built-in library of more than 6,000 fixtures from all major lighting manufacturers, Capture is available in three affordable versions based on users’ needs, and no annual subscription fees are required.
