Programmable Functions
Color System: A three filter CYM cross fading system capable of extremely smooth movements
at both slow and fast speeds, and a variable CTO color temperature correction system.

Fixed Color Wheels:
Two opposing fixed color wheels each with five interchangeable color filters are
capable of producing multi-color effects and variable wheel rotations.

Zoom Optics:
A 12-element 5:1 zoom optics system, covering a range from 9° to 47°.
Beam Size Control: A mechanical iris provides continuous beam size control for rapid and smooth
timed beam angle changes.

Shutter Control:
A four-blade shutter mechanism that allows the blades to be operated independently or in
unison on two planes for a clear and crisp image. The entire mechanism can rotate 50º in
either direction.

Rotating Gobo Wheels:
Two gobo wheels combine to offer seven rotatable, indexable gobo positions and one open

Animation Wheels:
Two animation wheels each offer unique rotatable, indexable patterns with variable motion
control from horizontal to vertical. Unique Dichro*Fusion pattern is chromatically tuned to
provide endless color effects.

Rotating Prism:
Independent rotating and indexing 3-facet prism with variable divergence control.
Edge and Pattern Focus: Variable beam focus to soften edges of gobos or spots. Remarkable depth of field capability
allows morphing effects between gobo and animation wheels.
Variable Frost: Independent variable frost glass with adjustable softness control.

Intensity Control:
Full field dimming designed for smooth timed fades as well as quick dimming effects.

High-performance dual blade strobe system capable of ultra-fast operation.
Pan and Tilt: Smooth, time-controlled continuous motion by way of three-phase stepper motor systems.

Pan - 540°, Tilt - 270°.

0.3° resolution.
