GLP impression X4 Family Welcomes the Mighty Atom

November 2015

GLP's new impression the X4 Atom, which will occupy a unique position in the marketplace, will provide a fundamental tool for all lighting disciplines. Since it is IP65 rated it can also be used in all applications, whether indoors or out, all year round.

Size matters and the power of the Atom comes from a body that measures less than 16cm long and weighs just 1.3kg. Within that body is a high-powered 15 Watt RGBW LED source that emits a bright beam with even colour distribution across a full spectrum. What makes the Atom unique in its class is a motorised zoom inside that gives a mighty 9:1 ratio, running from 3.5°-34°, and adding a huge amount of flexibility.

Furthermore the X4 Atom features a interlock mechanism that allows units to be built into different configurations quickly and easily, benefitting the concert touring stages, truss systems and architectural elements as the interlock system quickly turns single fixtures into 4-Lites, 8-Lites or any other shape.

“You can quickly create all kinds of configurations in seconds and without tools,” says GLP Inc president, Mark Ravenhill. “If you want to mimic molefays, you can, if you want to create groundrows, you can, if you want to make a little 2-Lite or a stadium style light fitting, then you can - and you still have full control over each head individually.”

Control for the Atom heads is via an Atom PSU controller, commencing with a 12-way, with a six way and other models to follow. The PSU supplies power and data down a single four pin XLR cable to each Atom head. “Since it uses the same format as the industry standard colour scroller cable, all the rental houses who have stopped using colour changers can now repurpose all that existing cable and infrastructure meaning less investment for them and reduction of overall environmental impact of the Atom,” says Ravenhill.

Rounding out the feature set the impression X4 Atom contains the advanced features that GLP customers have come to expect including adjustable flicker free control, beautiful colour mixing, smooth dimming without any colour shift, variable speed strobe and much more.
