Pro Color DMX Color Changer

Now theaters, stage productions and concert venues can have a rainbow of color at their fingertips, and keep the proverbial pot of gold in their pockets, thanks to the Pro Color DMX color changer from Elation Professional. 

The Pro Color is a highly affordable intelligent color changer that features 10 dichroic colors and 10 split colors.  It includes a very bright 9000 hr. lamp and a special frost filter that produces a dynamic wash effect.

"The Pro Color is ideal for venues who require different or more coloring than a standard par can provides, but who may not be able to afford the full color wash fixtures," said Ron Ramirez, national sales manager at Elation Professional.  "The advantage of the Pro Color is that it includes features such as an extra bright 150 watt discharge lamp and frost filter, which are normally found on more expensive fixtures."

The Pro Color's frost filter, which is not typically found on standard color changers, offers many options for the user.  While most color changers produce a sharp beam of light, the Pro Color's frost filter takes the edge off the sharp beam shape and turns it into a color wash-like effect. 

This color wash effect is especially useful when creating a full-color background sequence.  Instead of shining a narrow or medium spot of light, the Pro Color's frost filter allows the beam to soften and cast a wider color spread.

Another benefit of the DMX Pro Color is that it includes a very bright 9000 hr. lamp.  The special lamp adds extra luster to the frost filter effect, and helps to increase the volume of the color.

In addition to these special features, the Pro Color has an amazing 10 dichroic colors, plus white and 10 split colors.  A color scroll option is included to keep the rainbow of colors flowing freely without interruption.

The Pro Color also is equipped with 2 DMX channels that can be programmed to set the tone for any application. One channel controls the frost filter and a 0-100% dimmer, while the other operates the color wheel.  This makes it easy for the user to program the Pro Color and automatically keep the colored background effects changing.  A 10-19 degree beam angle can be adjusted to set any stage accordingly.

Priced at an amazing $599.95, the Pro Color offers venues a high-powered color changer at a very low price. It is ideal for stage presentations, small concert venues or any other application that requires a high-powered, full beam spread color changer, but doesn't have a vast, far-reaching budget.  "There really is no other DMX color changer on the market that includes these special features at this price point," said Ramirez.

The Pro-Color is fan-cooled and has manual focus.  A heavy-duty mounting yoke that can position the fixture horizontally or vertically, and rear plate lamp access add to the Pro Color's user-friendly features. The unit has a power supply of AC 120V, weighs 29 lbs., and has dimensions of 15.5" X 9.5" X 7".
