GLP Shipsf GT-1 440W Discharge Lamp

GLP’s GT-1 hybrid fixture is now shipping. Working as a beam, spot and wash fixture and using a new 440-watt Osram discharge lamp, it improves the output with a 22:1 ratio zoom range from 3.5° to 57° and no optical lens changes are required. The GT-1 offers a wide range of effects, including CMY color mixing, eight rotating gobos, 14 fixed pattern gobos, additional beam reduction gobos and a variable speed animation wheel that can be repositioned and continuously rotated, within the beam. The GT-1 also features three rotating prisms and a fixed color wheel with color correction filters, further widening the color pallet.

In its narrowest beam mode, the GT-1 produces a near parallel beam of light at 3.5° through its large 145-millimeter diameter front lens, which remains bright and consistent over long distances. As there are no physical changes, full functionality remains in the GT-1 while delivering these superior beam effects. In its widest wash mode, the GT-1 produces a soft-edged beam from a variable filter that can be inserted into the beam to give the desired level of wash required.

The GLP GT-1 also features the company’s baseless design, full 16-bit pan and tilt movement, full range dimming and shuttering capability, an in-built battery for fixture setup, an auto sensing power supply and a low weight of just 55 pounds. Here are all the specs.
