ARES

Functional Overview

ACME professional solutions and innovative products ARES Moving Beam are tailor-made for stage design and rental companies. The extremely effective Philips MSD Platinum 19R 4,000 Hours Long Lifespan(*Test lab conditions) discharge lamp with a great intensity of 882,000 lux at 10 meters offers extremely high output and fascinating prism/gobo combination effects.

The high-quality optics with a 200mm front lens and a remarkable beam angle at 1.3° offer almost inexhaustible possibilities. By ingeniously merging the independent frost wheel and two soft filters blending with an additional colour wheel offering 12 complementary colours plus a Minus-Green filter & High CRI option, it is possible to spark genuine emotions. Designer appreciates the powerful output and the wide range of dynamic effects that allow them to develop their creativity to the full. Fascinating lighting effects are created with the several animation gobos with indexable metal gobos on the wheel. A total of 4 prisms at two levels open up unheard-of possibilities in terms of creating diverse mid-air effects. The linear 3,200-6,500K CTO wheel and hotspot soft filters are enhanced by the high CRI filter for increased colour rendition and adaptation to TV and filming applications.

The attractive design of the compact housing with foldable clamps (Optional for Omega Bracket Base) for better handling in everyday use. 16-bit resolution enables smooth, uniform dimming and fast-moving pan/tilt speed. Designed to fulfill all scale stage applications, the new ACME ARES is a perfect beam light for all functional purposes.
