High End Systems, an ETC Company, recently launched the latest addition to the SolaFrame family of automated framing fixtures, the SolaFrame 1000. South African distributor of ETC lighting solutions, ApexPro, has demonstration units of the fixtures, just two weeks after its European launch.
Mathew Lewis, ETC product manager at ApexPro, spoke to ETECH at a demonstration of the new fixture, hosted at the University of Johannesburg Arts and Culture Centre on 06 March.
“The High End Systems Solaframe 1000 is the first product that is the result of the combined research and development of the High End Systems and ETC teams, following ETC’s acquisition of High End Systems two years ago,” explains Lewis.
SolaFrame 1000 is designed to be a workhorse automated framing fixture, which is highly versatile and can be used for both installation and rental markets, for medium-sized venues.
The Solaframe 1000 delivers 20,000-lumen output, full framing shutters, rotating and fixed gobo wheels, multiple colour systems, 12°-40° zoom, and animation effects, which is suited for all professional production environments. Lewis concurs, stating that “the fixture offers a good value proposition, as it is a high-end lighting fixture that is well suited for either the rental or installations markets and is competitively priced, especially if you look at its impressive range of features.”
Available in Ultra-Bright and High CRI versions, the SolaFrame 1000 ships with a TM30 Filter that boosts the Ultra-Bright engine to 85+ CRI. Other features include Iris and Light Frost, Rotating Prism and High End Systems’ patented Lens Defogger System.
ApexPro currently has demonstration units available at their Johannesburg offices. If you would like to find out more, or book a demo, kindly contact Mathew Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him on 076 057 7571.
