Compact Yet Powerful
Despite measuring only 235mm / 9.25" in length, the Color Force Compact™ produces a powerful 1700 lumens output - making it ideal for lighting areas with a very small footprint.

Multi-Purpose Workhorse Fixture
With its rugged external design and IP65 rated casing, the Color Force Compact™ has been designed as a multi-purpose workhorse fixture suitable for numerous entertainment lighting applications - including uplighting, pipe-end shin-busting, backlighting, truss toner and other wash applications.

Fast & Efficient Set-Up
Up to five fixtures can be daisy-chained from each 15-way Compact PSU output, eliminating the need to home-run a cable from each fixture back to the PSU. In addition, up to four fixtures per output can be daisy-chained on a Chroma-Q Color Block PSU (PSU-05B, PSU530).

Cost-Effective Investment
The Color Force Compact™ enables an even wider range of users and budgets to utilise the power of the Color Force as a creative lighting tool.

Power Across The Spectrum
The Color Force Compact™ uses its huge RGBA colour mixing palette to deliver a full range of high brightness colours across the spectrum. Deep cold blues, red hot lava looks and super soft pastels are all available from a single fixture.

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

Optics & Dimming
The Color Force Compact™ fixture's 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.

Full Range Of Accessories
For real versatility and compatibility with existing lighting inventories, the Color Force Compact is compatible with City Theatrical top hat, half top hat, egg crate louver and barn door accessories.

The fixture is supplied with a holder for these four optional accessories, as well as interchangeable clear and frosted glass light lenses.

An optional W-DMX wireless accessory for the 15-way PSU is also available.

Full Range Of Creative Tools
Complementing other models in the range, the Color Force line up now provides a full choice of creative tools for almost any entertainment application.

Compatibility with industry standard control consoles is assured. HSI, FxHSI, RGB (*Magic Amber), RGBA, RGBI (Magic Amber), Look Select, Master and Slave Standalone control modes.

*Magic Amber is the term used for the unit's ability to bring in amber when mixing colours that require it.
