Varilite 2500 Spot

Proudly built in the USA, the VARI*LITE VL2500 Spot luminaire is based on a very popular existing lighting tool – the VL2000 Spot luminaire – with additional new features that make it even more appealing.

The VL2500 Spot luminaire comes complete with all of the qualities and options designers love from the original Series 2000 fixtures. It is still small, lightweight, and fast with a 700-watt shortarc lamp, impressive lumen output, and a zoom range from 18.5° to 42°.

To add to these features, the VL2500 Spot luminaire provides three-wheel CYM color mixing. When combined with 11 standard colors on a fixed wheel, the color options are practically limitless.

Additionally, a coated glass dimmer wheel provides smooth fades, and a separate dualblade strobe system offers quiet and reliable strobe effects. The VL2500 Spot luminaire’s pan and tilt motors are now more powerful and provide more torque.

For image projection, the fixture has one gobo wheel with five rotatable and indexable positions and a second gobo wheel with 11 fixed positions.

The VL2500 Spot luminaire contains everything that really matters to designers – limitless color options, clarity of optics, exceptional zoom range, fast, smooth movement and powerful output.

The VL2500 Spot luminaire can be controlled from virtually any DMX512 console or DMX output device.
