Projection artist

With the DMH-200, Futurelight presents a powerful moving head with wide zoom

A moving head with a powerful LED, first class equipment and wide zoom: Futurelight presents this with its new DMH-200, which shows off its strengths especially when it comes to projections. The beam angle can be widened from 7.5° to 40°. Whether on a rock stage or in a theater, this spot feels comfortable on many terrains.

Futurelight DMH-200

The new moving head of the long-established company offers particularly sharp projections, even on short distances. The projections are very bright and – if needed – also really big. Narrow beams on a show stage or wide projections in a theater – the Futurelight DMH-200 masters these tasks brilliantly; not only due to the zoom, but also thanks to the motorized focus, its steplessly dimmable COB LED and the stepless frost filter.

The 200 W strong, white COB LED of the DMH-200 produces an enormous light output, so the spot is very assertive even on big stages. The color wheel offers 8 dichroitic colors. A rotating 3-facet prism and two gobo wheels provide for variety; one is equipped with 7 rotating, indexable and quickly changeable gobos, the other one with 7 static gobos. Both gobo wheels can be used in combination.

With a little more than 20 kilograms, the DMH-200 is a lightweight among the spots in its brightness class. 3-pin and 5-pin XLR connectors for the DMX signal as well as Powercon input and output are at your disposal.

The DMH-200 has been designed for mid-sized and big stages. It is perfectly suited for festivals and rock shows. Thanks to its unobtrusive, flicker free operation, the moving head can also be used in quiet surroundings like theaters and TV studios.

The first full-fledged lighting controller in a foot bar

Eurolite presents Bigfoot foot controller

Eurolite Bigfoot

Program a light show and control it with your feet later – that’s possible now with the foot controller Bigfoot by Eurolite. Bigfoot is a full-fledged lighting controller, packed in a foot bar.

Create shows and call them up

While most foot controllers are mainly designed for playing pre-installed effects, Bigfoot goes one step further: It enables you to program creative light shows and to control them by feet. Up to 12 devices with 16 DMX channels each can be operated at the same time – from PAR spots to moving heads.

Color and movement effects

Pre-programmed color and movement effects make programming shows easier. Up to 15 chases with several steps can be saved and combined to a show in live operation mode.

Comfortable use

The Bigfoot is divided into two sections. Above the handle is the programming section with potentiometers and buttons. Below the handle, which also serves as impact protection for the potentiometers, is the live section. It consists of 6 robust foot switches and 2 big pedals. The switches are the same which are used for guitar effects. You control the speed, choose and start a program, use the blackout function or activate the sound control mode with them.

The pedals control the fading time of the scenes as well as the master dimmer function for the brightness. If desired, the latter can also be used for controlling other functions or devices like a fog machine.

The two displays guide through the programming and make use easier by presenting the names of your shows, their speed etc. in live operation mode.

Robust and durable – with case

Made of stable metal, Bigfoot withstands knocks and kicks. Thanks to the big handle, it can also be carried very easily. An optional case protects the controller during transport and provides for a secure position during operation.

The quick-change artist among the moving heads

Eurolite presents matrix effect with zoom

Eurolite LED TMH-X25 Zoom

A real quick-change artist was presented by Eurolite at the Prolight+Sound 2017: The TMH-X25 Zoom unites moving head, matrix effect and beam spot in one device. This way, it offers absolute flexibility.

Endless possibilities

Viewed from the outside, the TMH-X25 looks like a matrix effect on the base of a moving head. 5 x 5 LEDs with RGBW color mixture are at the light designer’s disposal for creating colorful patterns, numbers, letters or animations. Each LED can be controlled individually. The device is controlled by DMX or Art-Net.

Powerful beam

On closer inspection, you detect the zoom, which changes the spot’s beam angle steplessly from 7.5° to 60°. This way, the moving head can also be used as a beam spot – the 25 LEDs with 12 W each are definitely strong enough to produce a powerful beam. Thanks to its Infinity function, the moving head can move endlessly in PAN or TILT direction.

Absolute flexibility

The impressive effect can be used for different purposes thanks to its versatile equipment: As matrix effect in a club, as beam effect on live stages or as background light in TV studios; the TMH-X25 always looks great. Its motorized zoom and the Infinity function make the spot absolutely flexible.

HYPNOtize me!

Eurolite comes out with hypnotizing effects with light rings

In the run-up to Prolight&Sound 2017, the brand Eurolite brings new LED moving heads with compact dimensions and amazing effects to the market: The devices with the melodious name “Hypno” captivate viewers with luminous rings.

Eurolite LED TMH Hypno-61

It’s all in the name

The name predicts the characteristics of these moving heads: LED rings, which are arranged around the lense, create hypnotizing effects in bright colors, while a light beam comes out of their center.

Two versions

At the moment, there are two versions of the Hypno, which, despite their similar looks, differ in their composition: The spot version is equipped with a powerful, white 30 W COB LED; you can modify the projection by using color wheels and gobos. Around the lense, three LED rings with a total of 76 RGB SMD LEDs have been arranged.

The second version owns a 60 W COB LED in RGBW colors, which creates a vividly colored beam. Around this, four LED rings with a total of 88 RGB SMD LEDs are at your disposal. You can control the LED rings completely individually on both devices. The moving heads can be controlled via DMX or operated in stand alone mode.

Compact and lightweight

Despite their impressive effect and their assertive light power, the dimensions of the Hypnos are manageable: Both versions are only 35 cm high and weigh only 5 kg. This makes them excellent for mobile use; solo entertainers or smaller bands are well equipped with these devices. Even when installed in clubs, the Hypnos perform perfectly.
