Posted on Thursday, March 29th, 2012
Philips Vari-Lite introduces the new VL3015, VL3015LT, and VL3515 Spot luminaires to provide lighting professionals worldwide with the increased output of a 1500W lamp in the line of VARI*LITE spot luminaires. Use the double-ended 1500W lamp that is used in their large format wash luminaires, the VL3015 and VL3515 Spot luminaires feature a 6:1 zoom optics system, while the VL3015LT boasts a 10:1 zoom optics system. All three luminaires include CYM colour mixing, variable CTO colour temperature correction, gobo/effects wheels, and ultra-fast strobe mechanisms.
While the VL3015 and VL3515 have a six-position colour wheel, the VL3015LT uses two five-position colour wheels, and the VL3515 luminaire has an added feature of a four-blade shutter mechanism that allows the blades to be operated independently or in unison for a clear, crisp image. The VL3015 and VL3515 luminaires house standard dual reflectors that allow users to choose between either a peaked or flat field beam. In the peaked beam, the fixtures provide 24,900 lumens of output, and in the flat field beam they both provide an output of 22,000 lumens. The reflectors are easily changed, and whichever one is not chosen rides securely inside the luminaire on a specially designed mount.
The VL3015LT luminaire houses a precision glass reflector system with dichroic cold mirror coating. This system allows the fixture to achieve more than 40,000 lumens of output. The VL3015LT also contains an independent, drop-in armature which rotates, is indexible, and is capable of holding 5-facet prism or the included frost glass. The VL3015, VL3015LT and VL3515 Spot luminaires are all complete with a palette of VARI*LITE gobos, effects and colors, while custom gobos, effects and colours are also available.
