Barco debuts intellaspot XT-1
Posted on Friday, October 8th, 2010
Barco/High End Systems have announced that it is now shipping the intellaspot XT-1, a full-featured hard-edged moving yoke light which it claims offers a new benchmark in a price/performance ratio. The intellaspot XT-1 features innovations in optics, lamp configuration, high lumen output, energy efficiency and zoom range.
The intellaspot XT-1 features an optical system, producing 20,000 lumens output from the 850w HID lamp, while also providing clear projections with a large zoom range of 11°- 55°. It features a fast mechanical iris, variable soft edge, and electronic strobing, in addition to smooth CMY color mixing and variable CTO. A fixed color wheel allows instant color choices via exchangeable dichroic filters. Two rotating Lithopattern® wheels, each with seven patterns plus open, provide a large number of output patterns and images. The output can be further enhanced with a rotating prism and an animation wheel.
Built on an entirely new platform, the intellaspot XT-1 is an energy-efficient fixture that conforms to modern “greening” principles. A battery-controlled full color LCD menu system enables fixture addressing without having to power up the unit. Low ambient noise, Remote Device Management (RDM), Art-Net, and wireless DMX capabilities make the intellaspot XT-1 suitable for a wide variety of applications.
