The VL3500 Spot is one of the industry’s most celebrated automated luminaires. The extraordinary shutter system of the VL3500 fixture consists of four shutters on two planes, which can be operated independently or in unison. The entire mechanism can be rotated in either direction to allow for even greater creative control. Opposing chamfers and nominal distance between shutter edges allows for a clear, crisp focus on all four blades at once. Combined with the fixture’s fast, fluid movement and precise repeatability, the ability to create is virtually unlimited. No other luminaire can provide the 6-to-1 zoom range in a silent-running 1200W fixture. The luminaire is the same size as all other Vari-Lite Series 3000 luminaires, providing a consistent hang configuration and appearance no matter which luminaire type is required.

 

Features

    • A three-filter CYM cross-fading mechanism. A fixed color wheel with six interchangeable color filters and continuous wheel rotation for additional effects. It includes a variable CTO color temperature correction filter
    • A 13-element 6:1 zoom optics system, covering a range from 10° to 60°
    • A four-blade shutter mechanism that allows the blades to be operated independently or in unison on two planes for a clear and crisp image. The entire mechanism can rotate 50o in either direction
    • Full field dimming designed for smooth timed fades as well as quick dimming effects
    • High-performance dual blade strobe system capable of ultra-fast operation
    • One gobo/effects wheel provides five rotatable, indexable gobo positions and one open position
    • One fixed gobo/effects wheel provides six positions for standard or custom gobos and one open position
    • Variable beam focus to soften edges of gobos or spots. Remarkable depth of field capability allows morphing effects between all pattern and effects wheels
    • Smooth, time-controlled continuous motion by way of three-phase stepper motor systems
    • Pan - 540°, Tilt - 270°
