SUNRISE, FL – There are “more storms on the horizon” at CHAUVET Professional, and that’s good news for anyone interested in lighting shows and events. In keeping with its commitment to offering all-weather solutions, the company has announced a new generation of IP65-rated moving heads: the Maverick Storm 2 BeamWash, Maverick Storm 4 Profile, and Maverick Storm 2 Profile. Maverick Storm 2 BeamWash is the first available, and its intensely bright and extreme versatility makes it powerful enough to excel at even the largest stadium and amphitheater applications.
“Our company has been increasing our commitment to developing IP65 solutions that stand out for being way more than weatherproof, including our Maverick Storm series,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “With the class-leading weight and versatility of the new Maverick Storm 2 BeamWash we’ve taken this category to the next level.”
In addition to its strikingly bright output of close to 10,000 lumens, the new fixture, which features 19 50-watt RGBW LEDs in its center pixel array, and an outer ring of 0.2-watt RGB LEDs, offers a host of features that open a wide range of creative options, all in a rugged, dependable package with a class-leading weight of under 40 lbs.
The Maverick Storm 2 BeamWash will light up the night sky thanks to its output and a zoom range that goes down to 3.6-degrees for searingly tight aerial beams. When wide washes are called for, the zoom range goes up to a generous 53.4-degrees.
Adding to the fixture’s versatility is its pixel mappable 12-zone RGB LED outer ring that offers individual pixel control. The outer ring is positioned under a stealth filter, making it easier to incorporate this light into a wide range of designs. Built-in foreground and background LED macros facilitate the creation of pixel-mapped effects.
Also helping the Maverick Storm 2 BeamWash stand out are its ultra-smooth fades, the result of its 16-bit dimming and six distinct dimming modes. Additionally, the fixture’s user-selectable 7,500k calibrated white and very fast pan and tilt movements open the door to more creative possibilities, while simple and complex DMX channel profiles make accessing looks easier.
“Our team has worked diligently on this fixture,” said Chauvet. “We believe in the future of IP65-rated fixtures, and with the Maverick Strom 2 BeamWash we’ve taken a big stride in that direction.”
