Infinity Furion B401

Infinity Furion B401

Infinity FurionThe Infinity Furion B401 is a very powerful, versatile, fast and razor-sharp Beam. But the feature which really defines the B401 is the Colour-bump feature. Colour-bump on any Beam is usually limited to red, white and blue. With the Furion B401 there is virtually no limit on available colours for the Bump-feature.

The dichroic colours available in the B401 have no fixed position which adds flexibility and speed in generating the desired colour. Besides having the choice to be able to bump between colours, the amount of white visible in the beam can also be determined.

D.T.S. Alchemy 5

D.T.S. Alchemy 5

DTS AlchemyAlchemy 5 is an innovative re-imagining of the moving head Fresnel. Forgoing multi-LED arrays common to modern moving head wash lights, Alchemy 5 couples a large Fresnel optic with an LED engine capable of perfectly emulating any class of light source, from tungsten lamp up to high colour temperature discharge lamps.

The operator can select from a wide variety of emulated gel filters which will adapt to any given CCT, which in turn can be changed linearly; the chosen gel filter can be finely tuned to generate complex colour mixes or to precisely match other fixtures.
