CHAUVET® introduces powerful COLORado™ Zoom Tour

CHAUVET has announced a new addition to the popular COLORado™ series, the COLORado™ Zoom Tour high-powered wash luminaire. COLORado™ Zoom Tour features a variable eight- to 28-degree zoom that serves to highlight specific areas or flood the stage with light. Its massive output, produced from thirty-seven 2- and 3-watt RGBW LEDs, outshines everything in its class. COLORado™ Zoom Tour is capable of even colour mixing at close range and features built-in color temperature presets for quick access to pre-

mixed shades of white. COLORado™ Zoom Tour has secure Neutrik® powerCON® in-andout, as well as direct three- and five-pin DMX input and output connectors. Two variants of the COLORado™ Zoom Tour, COLORado™ Zoom WW Tour and COLORado™ Zoom CW Tour incorporate warm and cool white LEDs for better, purer whites and increased selection of colour temperatures — from warm and inviting ambient lighting to crisp and cold shades. COLORado™ Zoom

WW Tour has 30 warm and seven cool white LEDs to emulate an incandescent light source, while COLORado™ Zoom CW Tour has 30 cool and seven warm white LEDs to mix seamlessly with ARC-source fixtures. Both fixtures have a colour temperature range of 3,400K to 5,700K, with COLORado™ Zoom CW Tour the brightest at 5,700K and COLORado™ Zoom WW Tour at 3,400K. www.chauvetlighting.com

HARMAN’s JBL Professional introduces AWC82 and AWC129 Compact All-Weather Loudspeakers At InfoComm 2012, HARMAN’s JBL Professional introduced the AWC Series of compact, allweather loudspeaker systems, bringing worldclass sound quality and high sound level capability to today’s outdoor applications. The AWC Series’ wide-range, smooth frequency response and high sensitivity ensure highfidelity music reproduction and superb projection of clear, intelligible speech. The AWC82 is a very compact, 8-inch, 2-way coaxial speaker with compression-driver high frequency, wide 120 x 120-degree coverage and 250 Watts power handling. The AWC129 is a 12-inch, 2-way coaxial speaker, also with compression-driver high frequency, focused 90 x 90-degree coverage, and 400 Watts of power handling. Both speakers can be operated as direct low-impedance (8 ohm) or on a 70V or 100V distributed line via built-in 200 Watt low saturation, multi-tap transformers. Components feature Kevlar® reinforced lowfrequency drivers and high frequency compression drivers with a unique patented design and high temperature polymer diaphragm for high output levels with low distortion.

Enclosures come in light grey or black and are paintable to match the requirements of the application. AWC components are highly weather-treated and a 3-layer grille with vapour-barrier backing minimizes direct rain contact with the system transducers. The recessed terminal compartment is protected by a panel cover and a water-tight gland nut fitting. A U-bracket is included. The system’s IP-56 outdoor rating and wide, smooth frequency response makes JBL’s AWC speakers ideal for projects such as racetracks, school stadiums, theme parks, fairgrounds, skating rinks and swimming facilities, as well as for arenas, general public address and a variety of other indoor and outdoor applications. “The high power 8-inch and 12-inch lowfrequency drivers, derived from JBL’s Control 328 and Control 322 high power, large format in-ceiling systems, combined with a new generation of compression driver, utilize the internally contoured pole piece and the entire driver cone to form a large diameter waveguide for the high frequencies,” said Rick Kamlet, Senior Marketing Manager, Commercial Installed Sound, JBL Professional.

“Those factors, along with high-slope crossovers, provide exceptionally consistent pattern control from a very compact system. These coaxial drivers allow these speakers to be extremely compact while really packing a punch in both sound level and audio quality.” www.harman.com
