The Exterior 1200 Image Projector is a powerful 1200 W luminaire designed for projecting animated images and effects onto facades and commercial buildings, tall structures, shopping centers, or any high-visibility architecture. Designed for night-time environments with emotional impact, the Exterior 1200 Image Projector brings new elements of drama to outdoor illumination: effects projection and animation.

The Exterior 1200’s seamless CMY system blends the primary colors Cyan, Magenta and Yellow to achieve a full spectrum of luminous colors. These colors, variable in hue and saturation, can be programmed to shift smoothly from shade to shade to create truly dynamic architecture. Further interchangeable color options are provided on a four-color wheel.

The Exterior 1200 Image Projector houses a rotating gobo wheel with four interchangeable gobo positions for projecting graphic images. Also included is a gobo animation system especially engineered to create animated lighting effects such as rising flames, windswept clouds, driving rain, reflected water, ripples, and much more. The animation wheel is interchangeable and can be angled, and speed and direction controlled.

The Exterior 1200 houses an efficient 1200 W metal halide lamp capable of reaches of 9 stories and above. Its high optical performance results in a uniform distribution of light and color. Intensity control is 0-100% for easy balance of brightness, allowing architecture to respond intelligently to the availability of natural light.

Equipped with superior optics, the Exterior 1200 Image Projector provides designers with a variable zoom and the possibility of varying beam angles from 12° to 18° (narrow), 18° to 36° (medium) and 31° to 51° (wide). This offers the flexibility of re-focusing on-site in order to achieve a perfect distribution of light and color.

Housed in a beautifully designed aluminum casing, the Exterior 1200 series is weatherproof rated at IP65 which guarantees reliable operation in harsh, weather-beaten environments. An efficient cooling system means the luminaire is effective in even the hottest environments. It is also suitable for marine environments such as cruise ships and bridges and has been wind load tested, an important factor for tower or bridge installations.

The Exterior 1200 has been made with low installation costs and freedom from maintenance in mind. A fully adjustable tilt angle allows the fixture to be oriented in any position. A convenient service hatch provides immediate front access for easy re-lamping, reducing service costs and securing the designer’s aiming position.

DMX controllable from an external controller or PC software, the Exterior 1200 can also operate via a built-in program or master/slave relationship. The LCD display also allows effortless diagnosis of factors such as lamp life, fan speed and temperature.
