Elation Professional has expanded its Platinum Series with the launch of the Platinum Wash 16R Pro, a low wattage moving head luminaire that can be used as either a beam or wash. The Elation Platinum Wash 16R Pro uses the new Platinum MSD 16R lamp from Philips (330W, 16,000 lumens) yet delivers an output comparable to 700W and even 1000W wash discharge fixtures for substantial energy savings according to manufacturer testing. It has a high-quality optical system so the Platinum Wash 16R Pro is designed for a wide variety of professional stage and touring applications. A motorized zoom system offers a variable range 3°-14° beam and 6°-43° wash, capable of adjusting the beam from very tight and narrow to a wide wash for flexible dual use from a single luminaire. For more precise illumination, the fixture includes an internal rotating beam shaper that allows for alignment of the beam for easier coverage of scenery and set pieces.  A CMY color mixing system gives a full spectrum of color options with additional colors available from a 6-slot color wheel, including UV and CTO correction. A host of other effects and beam manipulation can be achieved via the fixture’s two separate frost filters (light + heavy frost), linear rotating prism with macros, shutter and 0-100% dimmer.
