Versatile moving heads are especially in demand among light show designers, in particular when it comes to mobile stage equipment. After all – the more functions a device can provide, the more exciting the stage experience is for the audience. This is precisely why the Hybrid Moving Head is so much in demand as a combined solution for moving-head beam, spot + wash applications.
Cameo’s professional lighting solutions and innovative products like the OPUS H5 Hybrid Moving Head are tailor-made for stage design and rental companies. This moving head is a hybrid, so it covers the entire range of disciplines from beam and spot through to wash. The extremely flexible discharge moving light with a luminous flux of 18,000 lm and a light intensity of 407,000 lux at 10 metres offers an extremely effective combination of high output and a fascinating variety of effects.
The moving head beam, spot + wash effects of this efficient and modern hybrid moving head are made possible by a comprehensive range of fittings, featuring a large zoom range combined with high output and an extensive repertoire of effects. The high-quality optics with 130-mm front lens and a remarkably wide zoom range of 2° to 42° offers almost inexhaustible possibilities. By ingeniously merging CMY colour blending with an additional colour wheel offering 13 dichroic filters, it is possible to spark genuine emotions.
Light designers appreciate the powerful output and the wide range of prisms that allows them to develop their creativity to the full. Fascinating lighting effects are created with the rotating gobo wheel in combination with nine indexable and rotating interchangeable glass gobos, or optionally open. Alternatively, the static gobo wheel is available with 13 interchangeable glass gobos or as an open application. A total of five prisms at two levels open up unheard-of possibilities in terms of creating diverse mid-air effects. This is enhanced by the high CRI filter (>87) for increased colour rendition and for adaptation to TV and film cameras, as well as the variable frost filter for use as a washlight.
In standalone operation, the control is either in static mode or on a master/slave basis, configured via encoder and touchscreen. The illuminated colour LC display is battery-powered for mains- independent system settings. Greater flexibility is provided by the integrated W-DMX™ transreceiver, with DMX, RDM, Art-Net or sACN to control functions such as smooth dimming with 16-bit resolution and 4 selectable curves.
The attractive design of the compact housing with handles in the arms for better handling made of metal and ABS plastic should not hide its suitability for everyday use. A temperature-controlled fan works inside the housing for cooling purposes. The integrated power cable is one metre long and fitted with a Neutrik powerCON TRUE1 connector. The two Omega mounting brackets included ensure the Cameo Hybrid Moving Head can be securely installed.
