Elation unveils Sniper PRO
Posted on Thursday, April 21st, 2016
Elation Professional’s award-winning Sniper 2R multi-effect light “just got better and brighter”. Elation now offers the Sniper PRO, a new and improved hybrid effects projector, scanner and laser simulator with more power, more effects and greater speed than the original Sniper 2R.
Featuring the new 280W Philips MSD Platinum 14R lamp and emitting an ultra-narrow 2.5° beam, the Sniper PRO is capable of producing the same precise beam and laser like effects as its successful predecessor but now with three times the brightness.
“We met with a lot of success with the original Sniper when it launched in 2014, but we also had some customers tell us they wanted more power and more color choice,” said Elation Professional sales director Eric Loader. “So we increased the lamp from 132 watts to 280 watts and upgraded with CMY and more effects to give designers the chance to use the Sniper’s unique look on larger shows and installs.”
This enhanced Sniper has been upgraded to a CMY colour mixing system with an additional 12-slot dichroic colour wheel with split color possibilities. The Sniper PRO also offers a greater variety of dynamic effects from 20 static-stamped gobos and houses a bidirectional animation system for more dramatic animated looks.
Added to the original Sniper’s 3-facet prism is an 8-facet and linear rotating prism for greater beam and effect multiplication possibilities. The high-precision beam can be further manipulated using a variable speed shutter, mechanical dimmer and strobe. All these effects can be delivered at even faster speeds thanks to an improved X / Y / Z rotation mirror system with focus.
