Lampo Frullo (Round Version)

Great one from Lampo!  This is a Frullo (Flat Beam Version) rotating mirror drum light. Unit has an single 36 volt, 400 watt EVD capsule bulb that is in the center of the unit. The light emits through a special box with rectangular slots cut into it. Once the light goes out of the box it is projected out 4 rectangle convex lenses at the end of the central unit. From there the light reflects off 1 of the 4 rotating mirror drums. Control is from a PCB mounted on the side of the chassis.  This is one of 3 versions of this model.  There is also a flat beam version which uses a linear stick lamp (Here is a link to that unit Lampo Frullo Flat Beam Version  and a discharge lamp version that uses a rare SN250 arc lamp.  Unit comes white (clear), but can be gelled for desired color.  Made in Italy. 

Disco Tech Zet 4 Unit

Another unique unit from Disco Tech.  This is the Zet 4 unit that features a 15 volt, 150 watt EFR MR-16 lamp as the light source located in the rear of the unit. The light shoots through a 12 position gobo / dichro wheel (that is sound active) and then through a convex lens and then finally onto a split sound active mirror assembly.  This creates the magical beam effect.  The split mirror assembly moves the light onto the 4 mirrors on the perimeter of the front of the unit making a expending / contracting beam effect.  Very cool unit made in Poland.

Coemar Comet MSR400

Spectacular unit from Coemar!  This is the Comet 400 (Not to be confused with the Coemar Comet 36 classic unit).  The light fixture has 2 separate components.  The main light assembly where the effect comes from and a ballast assembly.  The ballast assembly contains the 400 watt ballast, step down transformer for the electronics and power correction capacitors / filters.  The assembly has a fan for cooling, carrying handles and connection umbilical to the lamp head.  Connection is made by a 10 pin Harting connector.  The projection head features a MSR 400 SA (Short Arc) 400 watt, 54 volt lamp mounted in the center of the base.  Mounted around the lamp is a dimmer / strobe assembly.  The assembly has a dedicated stepper for movement.  Light projects from the base through 7 convex lenses where there are 7 mirrors mounted on steppers and 7 special effect mirror assemblies.  Total of 15 steppers are used for operation.  4 of the mirror assemblies have multi-colored dichoric glass pieces mounted to them and the other 3 have standard silver mirrors for a white light effect.  The large mirrors move to pre-programmed steps and provide most of the units effect.  The mirror dishes constantly rotate opposite of the dish next to it.  The unit will work in standalone mode (triggered from an onboard microphone and sound activation circuit), DMX 512 (5 Channels for operation) and 0 -10 volt analogue.  The effects is awesome and can be customized by adding dichoric filters in dedicated slots in front of the convex lenses.  Unit made in Italy.
