Chauvet goes rogue with P3
Chauvet has expanded its Rogue Series of high-output and budget-conscious lighting fixtures with the high-brightness Rouge R3 wash. The fixtures outputs up to 21,000 lux at 5m when operating at 12-degrees zoom, from 37 15W RGBW LEDs. The unit has been designed to cater for touring, rental and permanent install applications, and therefore includes functionality for smooth colour mixing, dimming, pixel mapping and additional programming options.
The R3 Wash provides six distinct dimming modes covering various design options. The manufacturer promises smooth control of fades due to the fixture’s 16-bit dimming of the master dimmer, as well as of individual colours.
Users are handed control of nine LED zones, enabling the fixture’s use for pixel mapping. Additionally, a 12-degrees to 49-degrees wide zoom range permits both broad and focused coverage. That R3 can be programmed via DMX channel profiles (28, 58 and 99 personalities) and RDM is offered so that users can monitor fixture functions and make remote changes to menu functions. Connectivity is via 3- and 5-pin DMX connectors, as well as PowerCon in and out. An onboard OLED screen displays ‘straightforward’ menu options.
