adbThe Orkis is ADB’s new colour LED fresnel
Germany - ADB was present at Prolight+Sound 2019 with a large demo and hospitality area where visitors could meet and discover all the new products as well as some classics.
ADB's CEO Simone Capeleto reports: “ADB is traditionally linked closely with the theatre world, where our company has become established over the years with a vast range of lights, lighting controllers and dimming systems. In recent years, we have decided to combine tradition and innovation by enhancing ADB's classic know-how with a range of LED lights equipped with state-of-the-art technology for versatile, high-quality lighting, which is particularly in demand in theatres.
“Today, therefore, we know that our distributors and customers can not only count on our classic catalogue, with long-standing products such as the Warp and the timeless Eurodim dimmers, but also on control desks and LED theatre lights, which look to the future.”
Among the products that ADB presented for the first time at Prolight + Sound, was Ocean, the lighting console, designed for theatres, opera houses and multi-purpose venues.
The Ocean's most striking feature, as well as one of its main strong points, is its high-resolution touch screen, with a 70-cm-wide (27½-inch-wide) viewing area. It provides operators with full access to all functions and control of all parameters through a single screen, which greatly simplifies control desk ergonomics.
The Orkis is ADB’s new colour LED fresnel or pebble luminaire, which brings the modernity of innovative technology to the stage in a simple, versatile, heavy duty unit.
Its CRI remains stable at values of at least 97 thanks to a modern six-color LED system and advanced software. The Orkis’s performance comes into its own in colour production: the colour range obtainable is very wide, and every shade can be achieved. It faithfully reproduces the behaviour of a halogen light, making it compatible with various different light sources.
The Orkis is also a variable white LED unit, from 8000K to 2500K: the white light it produces is pure since it combines six colours, and the CRI is unaltered when the colour temperature changes. It can serve as a floodlight up to an angle of 87° (field angle), or a spot light with an angle of 15° (beam angle). Variation is continuous, smooth and linear within this range. Alternatively, the Orkis can be modified into a PC luminaire, by changing the lens with the related accessory.
