While visiting the Vari-Lite booth here at SETC, we noticed an interesting banner in the booth. Vari-lite has a blown up ad of their new VLX LED moving light that we hinted about a month ago. Out contact says that this ad will be running in the March issue of Live Design.
What is interesting is the verbiage on the bottom. It mentions that,
the VLX is equipped with 630 watts of LED’s yielding 3 times the lumen efficiency of equivalent tungsten sources. It’s revolutionary modular design provides for easy swap out of optical and mechanical components. VLX has a removable zoom system giving users the freedom to configure the luminarie with a fixed focal length of 22 degrees or a variable 3:1 zoom. The VLX produces perfect color mixing without any distracting color shadows. The luminarie has an extensive color gambit that offers designers color choices not previously possible with other conventional subtractive or additive systems. The color temperature is variable and can be seamlessly adjusted between 3200k and 6000k. Color shifts and strobing are stunningly quick.
We were not able to find our when the VLX may start shipping, but it was hinted at sometime this summer. We were not able to find out much more then what the poster said, but well keep after it for more information.
