showgun 2.5

Barco and High End Sysetms announced the release of the ShowGun 2.5.  The new version of the ShowGun offers 130,00 lumens of light, wich is 30 percent more photonic output than its predecessor.  The ShowGun is a very large and powerful automated light that can project images, change and mix dichroic colors, and switch from hard edge to soft edge all within a compact unit.

SHOWGUN’s main output uses a 2500 watt short arc metal halide lamp designed as a joint venture between Philips and High End Systems. The MSR 2500/2 lamp uses a novel fast fit socket design that allows for a more compact reflector combination. Combining the high-performance lamp, advanced reflector and revolutionary optical design.

SHOWGUN’s LED Tracking System utilizes homogenously mixed RGB LED circular array that allows the user to either match the color of the main output beam, or to project a complementary color by mixing RGB values. The LED Tracking System alone produces more than 5000 lumens of output, and works in tandem with SHOWGUN’s other features.
