The Color Force 12™ is suitable for numerous entertainment lighting disciplines, including uplighting, pipe-end, shin-busting, backlighting and wash applications.

Mighty Output
Producing 2,400 lumens output, the CF12 can also be used to extend Color Force 48 and 72 LED batten installations.

The mighty power output ensures seamless wall washing up to 8m / 26ft.

Power across the Spectrum
The Color Force 12™ uses its huge RGBA colour mixing palette to deliver a full range of high brightness colours across the spectrum.

Deep cold blues and red hot lava looks are all available from a single Color Force fixture.

The Chroma-Q® RGBA engine has been developed to deliver an incredible CRI of 92, for true colour balance across the spectrum.

The Color Force custom optical design provides a smooth, uniform output with outstanding colour blend across the spectrum.

Separate discreet RGBA LEDs are used for increased efficiencies and the custom Chroma-Q optical design delivers surprisingly clean shadows for most common real world applications.

Theatrical grade dimming, a high CRI of 92 for extremely accurate colour rendition and a clean white ensures the light output feels just right.

Cost Effective
In everyday use the Color Force 12™ is roughly comparable in output and cost to a 750W PAR with colour changer and dimmer channel.

Energy Efficient
With a 50,000 hour L70 lamp life and over 80% power saving when compared to a 750W PAR (even more at saturate colours), the ongoing financial savings of the Color Force 12™ are huge. It is anticipated the unit will actually pay for itself within 13,500 hours of use*.

13,500 hr x 630W = 8505 kWh.
8505 kWh x 12.5p** = £1,063
