CHAUVET Professional Brings Sleekness to Cyc Lights With the New Ovation CYC 1 FC

Posted on March 13, 2020

SUNRISE, FL – The just-introduced Ovation CYC 1 FC from CHAUVET Professional is raising the bar by lowering the profile of cyc lights Thanks to its unique close-to-the-ground housing, this sleek and silent cyc light can be positioned unobtrusively on the stage, and in the broadcast studio.

Although its design is discrete and its operation quiet, there is nothing reticent about this convection cooled, RGBAL fixture’s output. With an illuminance of 173 lux at 5 meters, the CYC 1 FC ensures a wide, smooth coverage area, often allowing larger backdrops to be fully illuminated only from the ground, without the need for downlighting. What’s more, since its light source is so near the ground, it can wash backdrops without dark dead areas at the lower end.

The CYC 1 FC‘s low profile, silent operation, and high output make it invaluable, not just as a cyc light, but also a foot light, fill light and side light in a wide variety of applications. An in- built shutter acts like a barn door, cutting the beam to reduce glare. An integrated kick stand adds to the fixture’s versatility.

Drawing on Ovation’s award-winning RGBAL color-mixing technology, the CYC 1 FC produces virtually any hue with the utmost realism and saturation. A virtual color wheel in the unit matches popular gel colors and color temperature pre-sets. The fixture also features 16 bit dimming of the master dimmer and individual colors.

The adjustable Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) feature in the fixture ensures that its flat, even field of light is never disturbed by flickering on camera. This attribute, together with its silent, completely convection cooled operation, make the CYC 1 FC ideally suited for broadcast applications.

“We have always pushed the envelope with new concepts in our Ovation products,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “With the CYC 1 FC, we feel we have done that again with cyc lights.
