Oct. 9, 2019

Yonkers, New York – Continuing to build upon their line of next generation LED luminaires, Altman Lighting is proud to announce the new SIREN Series AFS-500 and AFS-700 followspots. Designed to be a powerful yet economical solution for any theatrical design, the new SIREN Series followspots provide the full functionality of a traditional followspot but are packed with powerful new feature sets and operator enhancements.

“Understanding the need for high-performance LED luminaires in today’s theatrical environments, we are very excited about the introduction of our new AFS-500 and AFS-700 LED followspots,” said Nicolas Champion, Altman Lighting Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Along with the recently released AP-150 LED Par luminaire, our SIREN Series of cost-effective theatrical solutions were engineered to meet and exceed the expectations of lighting professionals worldwide.”

The most compact of the SIREN Series LED followspots, the AFS-500 is a lightweight, 490-watt, color-changing followspot with a rich feature set. Using the on-board controller, the luminaire’s dimming, color wheel, iris and CTO features can all be controlled manually or via DMX. Combined with an available color boomerang and a manual zoom range from 7-13 degrees, the AFS-500 produces over 10,000 lumens of output for industry-leading power and flexibility in an affordable lighting solution.

Delivering almost 14,000 lumens with range up to 200 feet, the AFS-700 is the maintenance-free workhorse followspot the industry needs. With a precision zoom system that delivers a 7-13 degree motorized or manual beam spread, the luminaire’s 18-facet iris, dimming, CTO, and color wheel can all be controlled via DMX, or on an adjustable control pad that adapts for right or left-handed operators. Additionally, with its quiet 37dBa maximum cooling system, the AFS-700 can be placed anywhere in your acoustically sensitive lighting environment.

“Both the AFS-500 and AFS-700 LED followspots were designed in the traditions of quality and affordability which are known to be a foundation of Altman Lighting,” added Pete Borchetta, Altman Lighting Product Innovation. “While introducing several key, new features, these performance-driven and energy-efficient luminaires are packed with powerful capabilities that will accentuate any theatrical or live event lighting design.” 

The compact and extruded aluminum design of the SIREN Series followspots allows for discrete luminaire placement, and each comes complete with a front-end accessory holder for traditional after-market accessories.
