VORTEX8 OVERVIEW // 02
The Vortex8 is a versatile 2×1 RGBW system with a CCT range from 2200K to 15000K that can be used as a hard punch light to bounce or push through diffusion, or as a creamy soft light with the Creamsource Dome or DoPchoice Snapbag. Effects and colour gels are built into the latest CreamOS architecture in addition to a range of new features wrapped into an intuitive user interface. Unpredictable weather and messy effects machines are no longer a worry for the lighting department where the Vortex is in place. The Vortex8 is IP65 water resistant and sealed for the ultimate security and efficiency. Rain, snow and dust wont hold the Vortex8 back.
Connectivity to the Vortex8 is well up to date with LumenRadio TimoTwo built in, Ethernet, Bluetooth, 5pin DMX, Wifi, USB type A and Creamsource Accessory port. Interaction between Vortex8 and various third party instruments and protocols are endless opening various wired and wireless control options. We are geeks for high quality and precision engineering, and loads of our geekiness has spilled into the Vortex Series. Built with elegance and durability in mind the aluminium machining and technopolymer infusion has allowed us to achieve our goals. Containment and simplicity is also achieved in this design, with the PSU as well as the antennas integrated into the head.
IP65 WATER RESISTANT // 03
The Vortex8 is built and designed to withstand all weather conditions and is rated IP65. The Vortex8 is an ultra quiet fan based system with optimum thermal efficiency. The fan system and heatsink placement allows for core electronics to be sealed and isolated.
Only premium waterproof connectors have been used in this series allowing all functions to be used in all weather conditions.
650W OF PUNCH // 04
The Vortex8 is a 650W power house giving the meter a reading of 14000lux at 3m / 9.8ft. Offering the intensity
of some 1200W HMI systems. All this punch in a 2×1 is possible with the ultra narrow 20° beam angle.
The versatility of a narrow beam angle source is obvious as both the artistic and technical needs to diffuse or shape the beam and create the correct work area can be easily met.
