EmpowerING Creativity with Chauvet Professional Maverick Series New Additions

Chauvet Professional Maverick series has turned up at an even wider variety of applications with the introduction of the Maverick MK2 Profile and Maverick MK Pyxis.

The Maverick MK2 Profile

The Maverick MK2 Profile, features a four-blade framing shutter system with rotation and dual axis movement for each shutter. It also allows users to shape and size beams with great precision. The fixture’s iris, three-facet motorized rotating prism and motorized frost provide added beam control.

“We designed the Maverick MK2 Profile to excel in a variety of applications,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “Our goal was to give designers maximum flexibility.”

In adding to this flexibility is the Maverick MK2 Profile’s CMY + CTO colour mixing system and colour wheel, which can be used to produce a rainbow of rich and realistic hues. Opening even more creative options are the fixture’s dual rotating and indexing open gobo wheels, which offer continuous scroll at variable speeds.

The Maverick MK2 Profile also features 16-bit dimming of master dimmer for smooth control of fades, a 3:1 motorized zoom, a color temperature (at full) of 5883 K, a CRI of 90, electronic dimmer, a pan and tilt of 540°/270° and selectable PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) for flicker-free operation. Control of the new profile fixture is easy via DMX, WDMX, sACN, and Art-Net. The Maverick MK2 Profile also converts TCP/IP to DMX for shorter data cable runs and offers RDM control over DMX for remote access reporting.

“Our customers asked us for a profile fixture that offered a variety of control options and was also powerful, flexible and user-friendly,” said Chauvet. “We feel that with the Maverick MK2 Profile, we’ve delivered what they wanted, and more.”

The Maverick MK Pyxis

True to its celestial moniker, the newest member of CHAUVET Professional’s Maverick family can produce an endless array of out of this world looks, thanks to a unique design that includes an outer ring of RGBW LEDs, a powerful zooming center pixel, 360° continuous pan and tilt movement and a host of other performance features.

“The Pyxis blazes a new path in design possibilities by incorporating a variety of different design features in ways that have never been done before,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “Designers who we’ve shown Pyxis to have been shocked that one fixture can produce so many different looks.”

The centre of the Pyxis is a 60W RGBW LED with a fixed 3° beam angle. Surrounding this pixel is an outer ring made up of 9 15W RGBW LEDs with a 7°-45° zoom angle. Working together, the centre pixel and outer ring are capable of creating a dizzying variety of captivating beam, wash, atmospheric and set piece effects. A built-in virtual gobo wheel with background colours can be used to make the outer ring appear as if it’s spinning. This effect combined with the retractable motion of the centre pixel and the 360° continuous pan and tilt movement can fill a stage of any size with dynamic high energy looks.

The Maverick MK Pyxis also acts as a double and triple duty wash and beam light, with a combined center pixel and outer ring illuminance of 27,560 lux at 5 meters. “We see the Pyxis as being a valuable addition to rigs of all sizes,” said Chauvet. “Its versatility and multi-functionality will help touring LDs create a wider variety of looks without increasing their budgets or taking up more space in the trailer. Thanks to its speed and variety of movements, this fixture can also be used to create some stunning wall and set piece displays at arena concerts. This versatility should make it a popular rental fixture.”

The Maverick MK Pyxis works with DMX, W-DMX, SACN, Art-Net, and Kling-Net. The fixture is RDM enabled for remote addressing and trouble shooting, converting TCP/IP to DMX for shorter data cable runs, including a battery backup touchscreen display with auto rotate depending on fixture orientation.
