Robe launch BMFL Wash Luminaire at LDI 2015

October 2015

Robe announce the the BMFL Wash and BMFL Wash XF, the ultimate 1700W lamp based wash lights, and the latest fixtures to be added to Robe’s BMFL range of luminaires.

The new range of BMFL fixtures are powerful workhorse wash lights, packed with innovative and creative features. A large 200 mm diameter front fresnel lens provides a high quality traditional wash output ranging from a punchy and tight 4.5° to a super-smooth 55°. Custom interchangeable frost filters offer three grades - light, medium and heavy - giving an extremely subtle and natural ‘soft touch’.

Both CMY and CTO colour mixing filters produce some serious finesse and the fine quality colour transitions for which the BMFL range is already famous. Two colour wheels each have six colours and a custom replaceable “SLOT&LOCK” position for additional versatility. Advanced DMX controllable ‘edge aberration correction’ helps create smoother hues and the optional XF module can be either purchased with the fixture or quickly and easily retro-fitted – it simply drops into place … opening up a whole world of additional possibilities. This includes the super-cool ‘internal Scrim’, a graduated filter that can be inserted in the light path and rotated around the whole assembly plus/minus 130° to achieve an even wash coverage when the light is projecting onto a non-perpendicular surface. A perfectly even and balanced beam is guaranteed.

This patent-pending feature is another original innovation from Robe for its BMFL series and will be invaluable in theatre, TV and film lighting environments. Internal motorised barn doors can be utilised to create unique shapes and chases as well as 

for the more practical task of controlling light spillage. The barn door module consists has four individually controllable blades, and itself turns 180 degrees.

Aimed at long-throw applications, the newly patented Robe EMS (Electronic Motion Stabiliser) technology, enables the BMFL to absorb vibrations from audio outputs, truss movement, sprung or suspended floors, etc. Robe will also be showing a range of other new products including the Square which combines the possibilities of video projection, pixel animation, beam effects and LED wash lighting in one fixture with continuous pan/tilt rotation movement; the ColorStrobe from Robe, an RGBW version of the potent new LED Strobe from Robe; Viva, an elegant brand new lightweight spot moving light fixture; and the PATT 2013 tungsten softlight, the first of a fabulous new range of retro luminaires from Robe for stage and studio.

Specially highlighted at the Robe sponsored recharge lounge is the new DL7S Profile, The Full Spectrum, the first DL range fixture to receive a powerful new 800W version of the LED engine with seven colours for unprecedented smooth, stable and even colour mixing and a very high CRI of 92. From the deepest to the lightest the DL7S provides a rich full colour spectrum experience, with custom colour mixing and dimming plus seamless operation, particularly at the minimum brightness levels. Four fast framing shutters within the optical path are individually controllable for position and angle, and as with all the DL luminaires, the multiple LED lightsource is completely homogenised.

More additions to Robe’s DL range include the DL4X Spot, DL4S Profile and the DL4F Wash, all with enhanced output and features.
