Seachanger, the color mixing engine that you attach to a Source Four ellipsoidal, has just announced that they are selling a high-output color engine that runs on a LIFI lamp. LIFI – I blogged about this a few days ago, but it means “Light Fidelity.” It’s a high output lamp, very efficient, and uses plasma.
Plasma. The NEMO is 83 lumens per Watt. EIGHTY THREE.
Did I mention 83 lumens per Watt? NEMO outputs 15,000 lumens on a mere 180W of power.
The Seachanger NEMO, from older posts I made about the regular spot and wash units, is also the kind of unit where you attach a Source Four barrel to the device and go. NEMO is basically an HID source (in output terms) for a Source Four – like the Mole Richardson lamp units for the Source Four. All of the same filters and xG (extreme green) stuff come with the NEMO.
From the product page:
Say hello to Nemo, the latest in the SeaChanger range designed to deliver a new class of high-intensity lighting.
Nemo is the first ETC Source Four® compatible color engine with a LIFI® plasma source that delivers 15,000 lumens on a modest 180 watts of power. That’s over 6 times the efficiency of comparable color engines.
The SeaChanger Nemo uses existing ETC Source Four front-end barrels as well as an assortment of ETC FOV optics. It comes equipped with SeaChanger’s own Extreme Green wheel that extends the CMY color gamut to create more dramatic, vibrant colors.
Because of its lamp life, Nemo is the perfect solution for hard-to-reach installations, domes, atria and theme parks. It bridges the gap between incandescent and LED lighting at a price that’s within reach.
Go efficient. Go Green. Go Nemo!
