Chauvet Professional begins shipping Maverick MK2 Wash LED entertainment lighting fixture
The MK2 Wash gives designers a new, more powerful and far more versatile tool than was ever available in its category, said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. Its output is far beyond that of any fixture close to its size. As a result, the MK2 Wash is not only extremely bright with the power to punch through stage lighting, its also very fast with rapid and smooth movements.
Brightness and speed are only two of the attributes that distinguish the Maverick MK2 Wash. The fixtures broad zoom angle of 7°-49° gives it the flexibility to create beam effects as easily as it covers wide areas as a wash.
Adding to the flexibility of this compact fixture is its wide array of control options. The Maverick MK2 Wash can be controlled via DMX, WDMX, Art-Net, sACN, and Kling-Net.
For even greater versatility (and unlimited creative possibilities), the MK2 Wash has a Dual Protocol Mode. This feature allows the fixtures movement and pixels to be controlled by different protocols. Using this feature, designers will find it easy to pixel map their entire Maverick MK2 Wash rig, rather than limiting themselves to specific units. Built-in macros can also be used to create pixel effects.
Any look created with the Maverick MK2 Wash is certain to be vividly and richly colored. In addition to its custom dichroic full color spectrum mixing capabilities, the fixture has built-in CTO color correction, an array of built-in colors, and 16-bit dimming of master dimmer as well as individual colors for smooth control of fades.
The Maverick MK2 Wash also opens new possibilities for designers to create captivating atmospheric effects, thanks in part to its virtual gobo wheel with background colors. Designers will also appreciate the fixtures quiet operation, which makes it ideal for broadcast use and other applications where noise is an issue.
Although it is extremely powerful and bright (up to 19,000 lux at 5 meters, depending on the zoom angle), the Maverick MK2 Wash is conveniently compact, measuring 12.72 x 9.17 x 18.54 inches (323 x 233 x 471 mm) and weighing just 32.8 pounds (14.8 kg).
The rugged construction and compactness of the Maverick MK2 Wash will make it a welcome addition to touring rigs, said Chauvet. Were all very excited to see all the creative ways that designers will use this fixture.
