A fusion of light
A fusion of light
Fusion by GLP has introduced a contemporary LED stick in a weatherproof (IP65) design. The Fusion Stick FS16 Z can not only be connected to produce seamless lines but, thanks to its halo diffuser rings, it can be placed in front of the individual light sources to develop a new optical effect. It is also based on the Fusion Stick FS20 with identical dimensions so that all FS20 accessories are also compatible with the FS16 Z.
The Fusion Stick FS16 Z is populated with 16 20W RGBW LEDs and the motorised zoom ranges from 8–40°. The 1m-long sticks are only 23.6cm high, 9cm deep and, despite the weatherproof design in the die-cast aluminium housing, weigh only 13kg. The halo diffuser ring is said to ensure the FS16 Z will create “a real impact in every application”.
According to the manufacturer, thanks to the ring surrounding the front lens, the visibility of the pixels in the camera has been significantly improved. The pixels are clearly visible even from very acute camera angles, whereas the lens is retracted far back into the housing in a conventional design, due to the zoom mechanism. The fanless design provides extremely quiet operation, which also makes the new LED stick ideal for noise-sensitive environments.
Various installation options ensure even greater flexibility and creative experimentation.
The individual FS16 Z LED sticks can be connected to one another without difficulty, so that both vertically hanging and ground-standing installations can be implemented with minimal rigging effort. Two different dimmer curves and four control modes up to a maximum of 79 DMX channels are available. The built-in FX engine is said to make it easy to create impressive, dynamic looks.
