Vari*Lite VLX Wash

Leave a comment

Unless you’ve been sleeping for the past year, you’ve probably heard rumors of a new Varilite wash fixture powered by 7 very bright LED’s. The VLX Wash is said to be ready to ship beginning in April at a dealer cost close to that of the VL2500. That would place it well below the MAC2000 wash, VL3000 Wash – and the other BIG wash lights. With a total of 630 watts of LED power, I am expecting this thing to be BIG bright…

How well the LED’s are cooled is going to make a massive difference on the life of the LED’s, so I am anxious to learn more. Its definitely a step in the right direction though, regardless of the little flaws it may or may not have. Even just the fact that they’ve used homogeneous LED’s (each LED package being full color) is a step. This means no shadows, Usable whites, etc.

Please – once you see it – reply to this post. I am definitely wanting to hear what people think.
