Elation's DLED PRO 36: Light Bright, Light Right

Finding a LED PAR can that is bright, durable, and can be used in both outdoor and indoor applications is no simple task. In this article I will provide an overview of Elation’s DLED 36 PRO, an indestructible LED PAR Can that will last a long time and not break the bank. The DLED 36 PRO has an ingress protection (IP) rating of 65 and features a die cast aluminum housing. The 108w DLED 36 PRO has 36 three watt LEDs to produce bright and vibrant RGB color changing and has a 15˚ lens kit with a 14˚ beam angle and a 25˚ lens kit. To get the most out of your DLED 36 Pro, you can run the DLED in stand alone, sound activated, master/slave mode, or DMX controllable mode. With a built in strobe (up to 18fps), you can easily use your DLED in DJ lighting or club settings, making this LED luminaire extremely versatile. To further increase the usability of this fixture, Elation outfitted it with a dual yoke for mounting which can also be used as a split bracket if you want to stand the DLED up for uplighting purposes.

Like many high end LED PARs, the DLED is flicker free, making it a useful light source in film production and live video broadcasting. To get the most out of your light and further customize the quality of light coming out of the DLED pro, it comes with a gel/lens frame which allows you to put an additional lens so you can further diffuse the light or change the light in some other way. The DLED weighs only 15lbs and is small enough to be easily transported, making it ideal for the DJ, theatre, or church on the go.

In my opinion you cannot go wrong with Elation’s DLED 36 Pro. Its durability and performance coupled with Elation’s commitment to excellence make it irresistible.

Outdoor LED PAR Cans: Bright Light in Any Weather

Finding durable outdoor lighting with fantastic performance has always been a problem. Luckily, as LEDs are further integrated into PAR cans it seems that there has been a steady flow of weather-resistant LED PAR cans with impressive brightness and RGB color changing abilities. In this article I will review three outdoor LED PARs that I think deserve special attention for their outstanding durability and exceptional performance and features. 

Acclaim’s Rebel PRO PAR 36 is built for outdoor abuse. The fixture IP44 rated fixture is encased in a durable IP65 rated case that guarantees the long life of the fixture. Despite its sturdy aluminum casing, the PRO PAR weighs only 11lbs and is ideal for the DJ, church, or venue on the go. Acclaim’s Pro PAR is particularly well suited for outdoor television and video production because it is engineered to be flicker free and mitigate the cycling of LEDs bulbs that occurs naturally from the use of AC current. The Pro PAR also features a dual yoke and integrated floor stand for either mounting on a truss or standing on the ground. The Rebel Pro PAR features full DMX controllability in addition to an auto and manual mode that can be initiated via the Pro PAR’s LED display.

Chauvet offers the Colorado 2 PAR64 LED, a powerful and durable LED PAR64 can. The COLORAdo 2 has an IP66 rating and weighs only 20lbs, making it ideal for a mobile theatre company or church that demands a bright wash. The ColoRADO has 48 bright 2w-3w LEDs that can mix brilliant colors with or without the use of a DMX controller. One feature that I particularly like on the COLORado 2 is its variable color temperature presets (3,200K – 10,000K), this feature gives you an additional degree of control over your quality of light and therefore an additional degree control over the ambiance you are trying to create. The 11˚ beam angle coupled with the COLORado’s light intensity of 15,061lux (@ 2m) makes the COLOado a formidable PAR with an excellent and consistent wash effect.

Last, but certainly not least, is Elation’s Design LED 108IP. This color changing LED PAR can is IP65 rated and features a weatherproofed LED display and button panel at the back of the can for control in any situation. The Design LED features 36 powerful 3w LEDs, each rated at 100,000hrs of continuous bright light. The Design LED comes with a 15˚ standard beam angle in addition to optional 25˚ and 45˚beam angles kits. One interesting feature of the design LED is that it offers three distinct levels of control with 3 channel, 4 channel, and 6 channel DMX modes. This feature allows you versatility in using your Design LED while conserving channels on your controller that you may want to assign to other fixtures depending on your outdoor show’s needs.

These three outdoor LED PARs are all excellent and exemplify the latest in LED PAR can technology. For the sake of brevity I did not go into all of the features of all of these cans, but I assure you there are many more than the ones I discussed. Be sure to check out all of these LED PARs and our other outdoor LED options, you won’t be disappointed!

Griven IP65 Color Changers Shine Bright No Matter What the Weather

Griven is the recognized world leader in color changers, their line of IP65 outdoor color changers is no exception. The ingress protection (IP) ratings measure a device’s ability to resist the entry of different size solid objects and amounts of liquid. A rating of 65 means that Griven’s outdoor color changers are pretty much impermeable and can be placed in any outdoor environment with no performance deterioration. The Colosseo OS CYM 1000 and the Griven Coloseo OS CYM 1000 HFT (built in wireless transmitter version) are two of Griven’s best IP65 color changers and have been used to light up some of the world’s largest and most impressive structures.

The Colosseo OS CYM 1000 line is seriously powerful; its HQI-TS metal halide lamp produces an amazing 90,000lm at 1,000w. The OS CYM 1000 changers have 3 DMX channels and are fully controllable in stand alone or in master/slave configuration. Griven offers the option of a built in wireless DMX receiver. This is handy because the OS CYM 1000 line is extremely versatile and can be mounted literally anywhere and therefore direct cable connectivity would prove cumbersome. The OS CYM 1000 series comes with the option an IP65 rated universal controller to make sure that not only your color changers can survive the elements, but your controller can too.

The OS CYM 1000 line’s color options are just as versatile as the fixture is itself. Its step motor powered CYM color changer can achieve virtually any color through the mixing of magenta, cyan, and yellow dichroic filters. In addition to nearly limitless colors, the OS CYM 1000s have a built in black out that functions by the closing of all the dichoric filters. The DMX controllable black-out and can be used as another lighting effect for the OS CYM. The Standard beam angle for the OS CYM 1000 and OS CYM 1000 HFT is 35˚ with the option of a 29˚ and 49˚ filter.

If large-scale, long-term, out door color changing lighting is on your horizon then the Given OS CYM 1000 line is the best choice for you. Draw attention to your hotel or nightclub and you won’t be disappointed by the increased attention your business gets thanks to the Griven OS CYM 1000s.
