Blizzard Lighting Announces the Blade™ RGBW

RGBW moving head fixture with razor sharp optics and blazing speed

Waukesha, WI. – Blizzard Lighting is pleased to announce their latest LED moving head beam fixture: the Blade™ RGBW. With its smooth RGBW color mixing, previously unseen 1.1 degree beam angle, and incredibly fast/accurate movement, the Blade™ RGBW is ready to slice up the competition.

“We’ve been working on a small, affordable beam moving head for quite a while. We looked at other fixtures in the market and thought ‘we can do better!’ We tried to build a better fixture with a better beam and a better price,” said James Keeley, who headed up development of the fixture for Blizzard. “The Blade™ RGBW meets all of the above and surpasses them all. It’s small, very affordable, and has the narrowest beam angle anyone has ever seen in a LED moving head fixture.”

The Blade™ RGBW features 36 intensely bright 5-watt CREE® LEDs (8 Red, 10 Green, 10 Blue, and 8 White) with full RGBW luminous intensity of 41,000 Lux at 2 meters. But the Blade™ RGBW is no “one- trick” pony. The included 8 degree diffuser lens will transform it into an impressive wash coverage fixture with excellent RGBW color mixing. It’s like buying two fixtures for the price of one already incredibly low priced fixture!

In terms of speed, the Blade™ RGBW is no slouch either. It boasts a 540 degree pan that clocks at just 1.8 seconds, and its 240 degree tilt times at just less than 1.8 seconds, all thanks to the use of its 2-phase high quality stepper motors. The Blade™ RGBW has no problem creating impressively fast and precise beams that slice through the air. It also features 16-bit dimming and a full color, easy to navigate icon based LCD display.

The total power consumption on this powerhouse of a fixture is a mere 148 watts at full RGBW draw. It measures 13.4 x 9.5 x 14.8 inches, and weighs just 11.5 lbs. The compact size of the Blade™ RGBW will allow it easily fit in any size lighting rig.

Retail price for the Blade™ RGBW is $899.99, and is available for immediate shipping.
