From the Manufacturer
The VARI❋LITE VL440 Spot luminaire is compact and economical but still loaded with powerful and useful features. This new series of luminaire from Philips Vari-Lite provides lighting designers with effective and creative tools for any venue or production size. The VL440 Spot luminaire comes complete with all of the optical quality and functionality designers have come to expect from Philips Vari-Lite. It is small, lightweight, and fast with a 400-watt MSR Gold 400 MiniFastFit lamp, very impressive lumen output, a zoom range from 15º to 36º, and a mechanical iris for continuous beam control. A drop in frost glass assembly allows users to soften the overall beam, allowing for additional beam control. Built in mounting points on the front of the luminaire provide for easy attachment of after-market accessories such as top hats. The VL440 Spot luminaire provides brilliant color mixing with its three-wheel CYM color assembly. When combined with eight standard colors on a fixed wheel, the color options are practically limitless. Additionally, a coated glass dimmer wheel provides smooth fades, and a separate dual-blade strobe system offers quiet and reliable strobe effects. The VL440 Spot luminaire’s powerful pan and tilt motors provide smooth, fast time-controlled continuous motion capable of 0.3° resolution with a pan range of 540° and tilt of 260°. For image projection, the fixture has one gobo wheel with seven rotatable and indexable positions and a second gobo wheel with ten fixed positions. The VL440 Spot luminaire comes equipped with glass gobos and effects. The VL440 Spot luminaire contains everything that really matters to designers – limitless color options, unmatched clarity of optics, exceptional zoom range, fast, smooth movement and powerful output; all of these features are combined in a compact, lightweight and cost-effective, new luminaire.
