USA - Vari-Lite has announced that its new Vari-Lite VL6500 Wash is now shipping.
The high-output wash lighting fixture, first demonstrated at Prolight+Sound 2019 in Frankfurt, combines the VL6000 Beam’s arena-scale performance with a visual attraction reminiscent of the legendary VL5. The fixture offers show designers a mix of modern power and vintage styling.
“The initial response to the VL6500 Wash has been tremendous, and it’s not surprising really, because we made this fixture as a direct response to the requests we have received from lighting designers,” explains Martin Palmer, senior product manager, Vari-Lite and Strand Luminaires at Signify. “We partnered with designers every step of the way when creating this fixture and tailored it to provide the capabilities our customers asked for most often.”
Palmer reports that customers like that the VL6500 Wash is a fully featured wash fixture companion to the VL6000 Beam with the same big picture form factor as its award-winning sibling. The VL6500 offers a full CYM+CTO system and fixed colour wheels but has presets that are colour-matched to the VL6000 Beam, improving the colour system while providing a consistent experience.
For further creative colour possibilities, the VL6500’s extended colour range mode offers the ability to move the colour mixing wheels beyond full saturation back to open. This allows designers to use creative split colour effects that can be seen both in air and on the Dichro*fusion blades.
“The Dichro*fusion blade system is absolutely the feature that most grabs our customers’ attention,” explains Palmer. “While they serve a practical function by offering variable diffusion, they also look great on camera as well. They reflect the great colour options on this fixture and bring back the vintage stylings of the Emmy Award-winning VL5.”
