Color Block 2 Emulation Mode
For maximum convenience, it also features a Color Block 2™ emulation mode, to simulate the lumen output of the original LED engine when used alongside other Color Block 2 fixtures.

Extensive Colour Palette
With its extensive colour palette and high CRI of 90, the Color Block 2 Plus™ fixture is a master at creating vibrant bold colours and subtle theatrical hues. Combined with its built-in variable colour temperature capability, even flesh tones look natural, satisfying all but the most critical eye.

Single Colour Output
The four large, camera-friendly LED cells offer performers less glare and mix beautifully for single colour output, virtually eliminating the frustrating colour separation shadows normally synonymous with LED lighting. The beam optics have a soft asymmetrical quality carefully crafted to give an immediate perfect colour blend for uplighting surfaces, yet retain a soft Fresnel-like edge for direct illumination. The Color Block 2 Plus™ fixture is bright enough to uplight a 6m / 20 foot set and then some.

Theatrical Grade Dimming
In addition, the fixture provides a smooth, theatrical grade dimming experience, whilst retaining the instant strobe-like control of intensity normally associated with LED technology.
