Philips Color Kinetics unveils LED floodlights

Posted on Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

At the LDI exhibition in Orlando, Florida this week, Philips Color Kinetics announced two powerful LED floodlights specifically designed to withstand the rigors of the rental and entertainment environments.

ColorReach Powercore and iW Reach TR Powercore are the road-ready versions of ColorReach Powercore, the flagship high-performance floodlight from Philips Color Kinetics. These rental-friendly floodlights generate enough light output to replace multiple flood and wash fixtures for large-scale and long-throw applications.

ColorReach TR Powercore offers over 5,000 lumens of output, light projection of over 500 feet, and the ability to generate millions of colours and dynamic effects without the need for maintenance-intensive coloured gels, filters, or mechanical scrollers. New royal blue LEDs are standard with ColorReach TR Powercore to offer deeper, more saturated colour projection in theatrical and touring projects. iW Reach TR Powercore produces intense washes of tunable white light in colour temperatures ranging from a warm 2700 K to a cool 6500 K. “With over 10,000 lumens of output and light projection of over 800 feet, iW Reach TR Powercore significantly outperforms competitive fixtures on the market,” the manufacturer says.

Both fixtures offer a range of entertainment- and stage-specific features, including a lightweight yoke for mounting to pipes, trusses, and stands, and an optional accessory holder for freestanding installations. Available spread lenses, barn-doors, top hats, egg crate louvres and other accessories slide into the accessory holder for easy swapping. Optional 16-bit control provides ultra-smooth dimming, say Philips.
