High End Systems has launched a new automated luminaire - the Studio Beam - which adds a third type of automated light, the Pebble Convex automated fixture, to the designer's tool kit. The Pebble Convex (PC) optical train produces a unique quality of light, distinct from a fresnel wash or ellipsoidal spot. Variable soft-edge and extremely high output blending distribution, coupled with a large zoom range and intense beam shaping give the Studio Beam PC a unique niche in lighting design and application. Using a new short-arc lamp and a patented combination elliptical/spherical reflector and aspheric lens system, the Studio Beam PC produces output levels one would previously only expect from much larger units.With its wide zoom range, intense output and compact size, Studio Beam PC is ideal for soft-edge key and long-throw highlighting, as well as providing aerial effects. Other features include full CYM colour-mixing, three additional discrete dichroic colors, an internal preset system, and 540 degree by 287 degree movement.An Adobe Acrobat version of the Studio Beam PC brochure can be downloaded from the High End website.
