Since they first appeared last year, Elation Professional's ground-breaking
Platinum Series moving heads have turned a lot of heads, thanks to their extreme
brightness, combined with a tiny case size and small power draw typically
associated with fixtures producing just a fraction of their output. The Platinum
Series' revolutionary space- and energy-saving design, made possible by the
units' cutting-edge Philips MSD Platinum Lamp technology, has allowed lighting
professionals to meet their project's output requirements with a fixture much
smaller and lower in electricity usage than they ever imagined.
Now Elation is introducing its highest-output Platinum fixture yet. Designed for
larger venues and productions, the new CMY color-mixing Platinum Spot 15R Pro moving
head blasts out brightness comparable to 700-watt and even 1,200-watt fixtures. Yet
amazingly, its compact case is only about one-third the size of a conventional
700-watt moving head (16.1"L x 16.5"W x 21.3"H), and it draws just one-quarter of
This incredible output-to-size/energy use ratio is the result of the new, more
powerful 300W Philips MSD Platinum 15R lamp, which brings all the advantages of
Platinum technology to concert/arena-scale fixtures. Not only is the Platinum Spot
15R Pro more compact and energy-efficient than conventional moving heads, it also
produces a superior flat, even light field, and it moves faster than traditional
moving heads on pan and tilt, as well as on color/gobo changes.
"Lighting designers working on larger projects can now enjoy all the benefits of our
revolutionary Platinum fixtures," said Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation
Professional. "You really have to see the Platinum Spot 15R Pro to believe that a
fixture so compact can fill a theater, concert hall or arena with 1,200-watt-like
output - and do it on such low electricity usage.
"This little moving head is totally in the 'big leagues' when it comes to advanced
professional features, too," Loader added. "It offers CMY color-mixing, a built-in
wireless DMX receiver, Variable Zoom and much, much more."
Just about any feature a designer could ask for can be found on the Platinum Spot
15R Pro. With its professional 16-bit CMY color-mixing system, users can create a
palette of rich custom colors to meet any design need. For even more visual
possibilities, there are 8 dichroic colors and 22 gobos (8 rotating and
replaceable), a 3-facet rotating prism and strobe effect. A variable Frost Filter
gives the Platinum Spot 15R Pro the versatility to function as a hybrid spot-wash
fixture, simply by applying frost to diffuse the hard-edge beam. A Motorized Iris,
Motorized Focus and 0-100\% Mechanical Dimmer put even more control in the user's
hands. And the fixture's Variable Zoom gives it the flexibility to move in and out
from a 9° to 27° beam angle.
Another premium feature is a built-in Elation EWDMX wireless DMX receiver. When
used with an Elation EWDMXT wireless transmitter (sold separately), the fixture can
receive DMX signals wirelessly from up to 3,000 feet away. Not only does this
eliminate the time and labor involved in running cable, but the unit's wireless
capability combined with its small size make the Platinum Spot 15R Pro the perfect
solution for use in tight spaces where an extremely bright output is required.
With a Pan of 540°/630° and Tilt of 265° the Platinum Spot 15R Pro provides great
area coverage, too. It can run in three different DMX channel modes, the standard
being 23 channels. At 16 feet, it emits a brightness of 10,500 lux/975
Despite its high output, the Platinum Spot 15R Pro measures just 16.1"L x 16.5"W x
21.3"H/ 409 x 419 x 541mm and weighs 48.9 lbs./22.2 kg. The MSRP of the Platinum
Spot 15R Pro is $6,999.95.
