CHAUVET Professional Introduces Ovation SP-300CW LED Followspot
The new CHAUVET Professional Ovation SP-300CW offers the efficiency of LED technology in a bright professional-level followspot. While it is not a fixture specifically designed for mobile DJs, it may be of interest to DJs who also provide lighting production services.
Powered by a 260-watt 5500K cool white LED engine, and featuring a 10- to 20-degree zoom, the high-output fixture is designed to provide events in mid-sized venues with a practical, reliable and cost-effective followspot solution. Among the standout features of the Ovation SP-300CW are its fully closeable iris, which allows more precise lighting control. The new followspot also has on-board linear dimming, as well as smooth manual sliders for zoom, and a focus that optimizes its spotlight for throw distances of 50’-100’.
“Theatres, churches and other mid-sized venues will find that the Ovation SP-300CW offers them all the benefits of LED technology in a high-output followspot that produces a crisp cool white beam,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “We also added quite a few user-friendly features to this fixture.”
A unique 6-slot manual boomerang in front of the light source makes it easy to add gels for quick colour changes. The fixture is also extremely quiet, while its 2300HZ PWM frequency results in flicker-free operation for video applications.
Extremely bright, with an illuminance ranging from 7,330 to 17,296 lux at 5 metres depending on the zoom angle, the Ovation SP-300CW has the output needed to meet the requirements of virtually any mid-sized venue. “We see this fixture fitting the needs of a wide variety of applications,” said Chauvet. “It will give end-users yet another way to incorporate LED technology into their rigs.”
