Over the last seven years, the ColorBlast range has established itself as an industry standard lighting tool, being used extensively in the concert, theatrical and production rental sectors worldwide. Now, with additional colours and enhanced features, the ColorBlast TRX builds on this pedigree. This fully-featured RGBAW LED wash/flood/spotlight offers an enhanced colour range, light output of up to 1577 lumens, and onboard addressing and configuration features.

ColorBlast Key Features

Key features of this technology include five-channel RGBAW in/out, three-channel RGB in/out, and three-channel RGB in mapped to five-channel RGBAW out modes. Amber and neutral white LEDs seamlessly blend with red, green, and blue LEDs to produce a significantly expanded colour palette, adding intense yellows, high-quality whites, and a range of subtle pastel colours to the millions of saturated colours achievable with standard RGB lighting fixtures.

This latest version of the ColorBlast  series has DMX and fixed colour modes, 8- bit or 16-bit resolution that means smooth dimming and precise colour control, adjustable dimming curves and LED transition speeds that emulate the behaviour of other Philips Color Kinetics fixtures and conventional theatrical fixtures with DMX dimming.

Rob Merrilees, Managing Director of Big Picture Creative, has ColorBlast fixtures in his rental department and has used them extensively for numerous exhibitions and shows, including the Olympics and Winter Olympics. Commenting on the ColorBlast TRX, Merrilees said:

“The ColorBlast is just a great all round lighting instrument and with the addition of amber and white LEDs, coupled with the on-board facilities; this latest ColorBlast will really satisfy the demands of today’s theatrical lighting designers”.

The use of touch-sensitive menus offer direct access to all on-board functions. Fixture self-test visually confirms proper fixture operation, while diagnostics display information such as serial number, operating temperature, and input voltage. The fixture also comes with interchangeable 23° soft focus and 10° clear tempered glass spread lenses as standard.

Architainment distributes the full Philips ColorBlast range in the UK.
