The Chauvet Professional Rogue R1 Wash and Rogue R2 Wash.
The Rogue R1 Wash and Rogue R2 Wash are RGBW colorwash moving heads that use high-power 15-watt Quad-Color LEDs (red, green, blue, white,), all configured under a single zooming lens plate, to provide smooth shadow-free color blending, potent output, and an exceptionally even field of light. With a wide zoom range of 8°-30°, they can be used to highlight an object or performer in an intense glow of color, or softly wash or uplight broad expanses of walls and other surfaces. Both models feature full 540° pan/230° tilt rotation, giving them the ability to cover large areas with their rich, saturated colors.  The Rogue R2 Wash offers the bonus capability of 5-zone control, which means it can be used to create exciting pixel and eye candy effects, in addition to RGBW color washes.
