SUNRISE, FL – Versatility was the watchword at CHAUVET Professional when the company’s design team developed the new Rogue R1 Beam Wash. Capable of producing intense beam effects one moment and soft color washes the next, the compact fixture was engineered to be a flexible and reliable workhorse on any rig, whether on tours, or at live music venues, festivals, theatres, and events.
“The R1 Beam Wash was developed in response to feedback from designers and rental houses who wanted a fixture capable of filling a variety of roles often during the same project,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “We included a number of features in this fixture that enables us to offer versatility without sacrificing performance.”
Among the key features in the Rogue R1 Beam Wash is a unique lens design that allows it to deliver tight beam effects as well as realistic and accurate color blending from its seven 40W RGBW LEDs. The fixture’s six distinct dimming modes and 2800 to 10000 K color temperature range, as well as its extremely wide beam angle (4° to 37.8°) and zoom angle (5° to 58.2°), add to its impressive versatility.
Also distinguishing this newest addition to the universally popular Rogue series is its intense output, which gives it the capability to excel as a blinder, strobe or audience light. The fixture has an output of up to 13,939 lux measured at five meters.
The Rogue R1 Beam Wash’s compact size –it measures 8.42 x 6.29 x 14.52 inches (214 x 160 x 369 mm) – adds to its flexibility, allowing it to be well represented even in tight rigs. Its compactness also enhances the rapid speed of its smooth pan and tilt movements.
Thanks to its selectable Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), this powerful, compact fixture produces flicker free lighting, making it well-suited for applications that will be recorded on video. As befits such a versatile fixture, the Rogue R1 Beam Wash offers simple and complex DMX channel profiles for programming versatility.
At a time when compact fixtures are expected to “multi-task,” the new Rogue R1 Beam Wash is a perfect fit, regardless of which role (or roles) it’s asked to fill.
