Robe has launched MegaPointe, a multi-functional moving light fixture.
MegaPointe takes the concept of the all-in-one fixture to a new level, according to Robe.
With an exclusive 470W short-arc lightsource, Robe’s MegaPointe optics produces bright parallel beams, and spot gobo projections. These features are combined with super-quick movement, smooth CMY colour mixing and various effects for splitting and shaping the light in Spot, Beam or Wash modes.
The zoom ranges from 1.8 to 21 degrees in Beam mode and goes from three to 42 degrees in Spot mode with crystal clear high-clarity output through a 150 mm diameter front lens, with a total lumen output of 20.375 and a CRI of over 80.
Inventive, different in-air projections can be created using the new Effects Engine, pre-loaded with 12 dynamic beam and flower effects, and can be further finessed using the beam shaper which can emulate framing shutter effects and create rectangular shapes as well as being rotatable and indexable.
Using the ‘light’ and medium’ frost filters with any combination of colours from the CMY mixing system produces a smooth, even wash coverage.
There is a static 14-slot plus open gobo wheel fitted with glass gobos for precision surface projections and exciting in-air impressions, and a second wheel contains nine rotating gobos that rotate and can be indexed.
These can be combined with a variable speed, bi-directional animation wheel which can be used in conjunction with any of the gobos or on its own to enhance or produce subtle and detailed effects and projections.
A remote adjustable hot-spot control can further influence the appearance of the lightsource, and there is more versatility with a series of pre-programmable ‘random’ strobe and pulse effects.
The fixture weighs 22Kgs (48.5lbs).
Robe’s Pointe was launched in 2013 and as the first multi-functional moving light. MiniPointe was launched in 2015 to bring Pointe dynamics to small-to-medium applications.
MegaPointe is perfect for live concerts, festivals, EDM and dance events, TV productions, outdoor spectaculars and all types of live events and permanent installations.
The first MegaPointes were live in action a week before the launchon the main stage production lighting rig designed by Sander den Otter for Mysteryland 2017, the Netherlands’ oldest dance music event this year staged over two days at Haarlemmermeerse Bos, Amsterdam, and produced by ID&T.
MegaPointes made a big impact on the main stage of the first ever New Horizons EDM / dance music event at Nürburgring, Germany, part of a production design by Andre Beekmans from NL based creative practice, The Art of Light.
The launch is supported by worldwide product demonstrations and roadshows via Robe’s subsidiaries and distributor network.
