Chauvet Professional Launches the Legend 330SR Spot
Posted on Tuesday, January 28th, 2014
Chauvet Professional introduces the Legend 330SR Spot, a compact moving head spot fixture whose brightness and crisp gobo projection will make it a standout performer at any concert or live event. Utilizing a powerful 330W 8,000K Osram Sirius lamp, this fast-moving unit emits an amazingly robust output for its modest size (16.5″ x 15.3″ x 26″ / 420 x 390 x 660mm) — up to 29,940 lux at five meters. Its class-leading brightness, combined with precision optics and an extremely even field of light, will make detailed gobo patterns “pop out,” for truly stunning visual effects.
Beyond brightness and clarity, the Legend 330SR Spot gives lighting designers a palette of tools to fulfill and inspire their creative vision. Its many professional features include CMY color mixing, an 8- to 23-degree zoom, dimmer, iris, shutter/strobe, and motorized focus. For added versatility, the Legend 330SR Spot is equipped with a variable frost filter that allows it to do double-duty as a wash-style effect.
The Legend 330SR Spot boasts a large collection of on-board gobos, 14 static and eight rotating. The eight rotating gobos (four metal, four glass) are indexing and interchangeable, and all 22 gobos can be incorporated into continuous variable-speed scrolling effects. Another standout feature is an eight-facet rotating prism, which, when used with the zoom, produces a strikingly spectacular visual display.
“The Legend 330SR Spot was designed with ‘extras’ that go beyond your typical moving head spot,” said Mike Graham, product manager for Chauvet Professional. “For example, its gobos give designers a wide range of options for different applications. There are several small ‘break up’ gobos that provide a greater sense of movement when performers walk through them on stage, and at the same time there are also larger patterns with distinctive shapes designed to create impact when the fixture is used for aerial lighting or projection.”
“For superior color mixing, the Legend 330SR Spot utilizes a custom designed CMY color mixing system, in addition to the seven colors on the color wheel,” added Graham. “Traditionally, it has been very difficult to mix primary colors. Because of the custom formulation we used in the CMY flags, we have been able to select colors which allow you to easily create wide palettes of color, including red and green. The incredible output of the SR330 lamp, coupled with its high color temperature, enable it to punch through even the brightest stages. Basically, the Legend 330SR Spot is a fixture that will create added impact on stage — or anywhere it’s used — by giving the designer more brightness and more choices.”
With its brawny output, tool-chest of features, and compact size, the Legend 330SR Spot is a perfect fixture for touring rigs, concerts, theatre, or any type of live performance. Its quiet operation also makes it ideal for TV and broadcast lighting applications.
The Legend 330SR Spot can be operated on 21 or 27 DMX channels, and it includes three- and five-pin XLR connectors and Neutrik powerCON connectors for fast, easy setup. It features quick, precise 540-degree pan and 270-degree tilt movement, with automatic pan/tilt correction. Weighing 47.4lb (21.5 kg), the unit is CE approved and MET approval pending.
