  • Color System: A three filter CYM cross fading system capable of extremely smooth movements at both slow and fast speeds, and a variable CTO color temperature correction system.
  • Fixed Color Wheels: Two opposing fixed color wheels each with five interchangeable color filters are capable of producing multi-color effects and variable wheel rotations.
  • Zoom Optics: A 12-element 5:1 zoom optics system, covering a range from 9° to 47°.
  • Beam Size Control: A mechanical iris provides continuous beam size control for rapid and smooth timed beam angle changes.
  • Shutter Control: A four-blade shutter mechanism that allows the blades to be operated independently or in unison on two planes for a clear and crisp image. The entire mechanism can rotate 50º in either direction.
  • Rotating Gobo Wheels: Two gobo wheels combine to offer seven rotatable, indexable gobo positions and one open position.
  • Animation Wheels: Two animation wheels each offer unique rotatable, indexable patterns with variable motion control from horizontal to vertical. Unique Dichro*Fusion pattern is chromatically tuned to provide endless color effects.
  • Rotating Prism: Independent rotating and indexing 3-facet prism with variable divergence control.
  • Edge and Pattern Focus: Variable beam focus to soften edges of gobos or spots. Remarkable depth of field capability allows morphing effects between gobo and animation wheels.
  • Variable Frost: Independent variable frost glass with adjustable softness control.
  • Intensity Control: Full field dimming designed for smooth timed fades as well as quick dimming effects.
  • Strobe: High-performance dual blade strobe system capable of ultra-fast operation.
  • Pan and Tilt: Smooth, time-controlled continuous motion by way of three-phase stepper motor systems.
  • Range: Pan – 540°, Tilt – 270°.
  • Accuracy: 0.3° resolution.
