GLP Launches impression X4
The new impression X4 from GLP brings power, flexibility, and practicality in a breakthrough design, the company says.
Incorporating 19 quad color RGBW LED's, each rated at 15W, the impression X4 offers a single homogenized color output from its front lens across a wide color spectrum and with high output. By using quad color LEDs, the impression X4 features a color range from the deep saturates through to soft pastel shades by incorporating more of the white LED element, which has a native color temperature of 5,600K and is complimented by a variable color temperature correction channel.
A unique feature to the impression X4 lies behind its "bug eyes", with the ability to activate a series of pre-defined patterns across the front lens. Using just a single channel, 250 pattern options are available that instantly turn the fixture into a great effect for work into a camera lens or audience gags. GLP has also added the ability for users to create their own effects, patterns, and chases on the fly and record them into their show. It's all incorporated into a DMX profile that uses just 20 channels.
The impression X4 also turns things up with an expansive 7:1 zoom ratio that ranges from seven to 50 degrees. At its narrowest, the impression X4 features both a hard- and soft-edged beam, allowing for aerial effects along with powerful color washes that can cut through cleanly on stages and studio floors.
The cooling system for the impression X4 is designed around a large back-shell that collects heat from the fixture and dissipates it using convection only for silent operation. It also has an onboard fan to ensure that it stays cool enough to keep operating with maximum output.
With onboard electronic dimming, the impression X4 offers smooth full-range dimming across its entire output spectrum, and as it's all electronic the impression X4 also offers a variable strobe rate from one to 10 flashes per second, random strobe effect macros, and preprogrammed intensity pulsing effects. The electronic shutter also allows for instant intensity changes or snaps to black.
The impression X4 features 16 bit pan and tilt movement with coverage of 660 degrees of pan and 260 degrees of tilt, with automatic feedback should the fixture be knocked out of position.
The look of the impression X4 continues on from earlier GLP fixtures and features a baseless design to keep the fixture as low profile and lightweight as possible. A floor stand is included with every fixture, and for rigging the impression X4 can take a standard half coupler directly into its base or use an optional omega bracket attachment ensuring it can be operated in any orientation.
For ease of use anywhere in the world, the impression X4 comes with a fully auto sensing power supply that operates anywhere from 100-240V at 50/60Hz.
The impression X4 is available in four-way and six-way flight cases as standard or in single box packaging.
