Welcome to The Sound of Silence.For decades, lighting designers have been waiting for a powerful, high intensity moving light with framing shutters suitable for extreme noise-sensitive live entertainment environments, including opera, theatre, concert halls, television studios, and of course, houses of worship.

Many moving light companies have searched to find that balance of intensity and fixture cooling that would result in a light that has very quiet motors, cooling fans, and internal moving parts (gobo wheels, zoom mechanisms, shutters, and the thousand of other gears, belts, and tracks). High End Systems (an ETC company) has developed a revolutionary fixture that addresses and meets these challenges. The new SolaFrame Theatre moving light is a welcome addition to the recently developed SolaFrame line, which also includes the SolaFrame 750, SolaFrame 1500, and SolaFrame 2000. What separates the SolaFrame Theatre from the others in the SolaFrame family is that this is the only light without any cooling fans. In addition, this fixture has a very high CRI of >90 with an output of 15,000 field lumens. The light engine consumes 440 watts and has a color temperature of 6,000 Kelvin. The SolaFrame Theatre also has an L70 LED-life rating of 50,000 hours. It’s RDM compatible and runs on 47 DMX channels. This fixture is ideal for small to medium-long throw applications (10-40 feet), which applies to most houses of worship.
