Posted on Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

With an eye towards exciting new capabilities and new markets, the Cyberlight 2.0 automated luminaire is now in production.

Digital and automated lighting pioneer Barco announced today the release of a new lighting product from High End Systems — the Cyberlight 2.0. This new product was recently unveiled in a sneak preview at the Austin City Limits festival in Austin, Texas.

The Cyberlight 2.0 is a full-featured automated luminaire with a 2000 watt short arc lamp, producing over 30,000 lumens of output from a new electronic ballast. As the newest version of High End Systems’ classic Cyberlight, the Cyberlight 2.0 offers increased output, updated software capabilities and stunningly fast mirror movements. In terms of control, the fixture includes new RDM and DMX protocol and addressing, 5-pin DMX connectors, and an intuitive LED menu for DMX addressing. In addition to cosmetic changes, the Cyberlight 2.0 also offers a high degree of creativity, with tools such as electronic strobing, TriColor effects and dramatic new Lithopatterns.

“The Cyberlight has been an industry workhorse since 1994,” said Richard Belliveau, CTO of Creative Lighting. “Our goal was to update the fixture, without compromising its features that users have come to know and love.”

The new Cyberlight 2.0 retains the popular feature set of the original Cyberlight including remotely variable focus and zoom, motorized iris, variable frost and smooth dimming. The color system consists of CMY color mixing and an eight position fixed color wheel while many images are available via the eight position Litho wheel and four position rotating Litho wheel. In addition, the unique eight position effects wheel provides amazing imagery, prisms, lens options, and more.
