Extending the creative opportunities of light

Delivering a smooth even beam, the PLCyc1 seamlessly blends intense washes of colour on cycloramas up to 5m high. Using LED source technology combined with a properly shaped asymmetrical reflector, the PLCyc1 delivers consistent light distribution without the compromising performance of vertical or horizontal spreader lenses.

Each luminaire can replace the equivalent of a traditional four colour 1000W per circuit Cyc luminaire, and with the convenient powercon system, the PLCyc1 can light a typical cyclorama with a single 10A non-dim circuit.

Advanced Control

The PLCyc1 LED luminaire has an on-board LCD menu system for setup, control, and addressing. The menu system is intuitive and offers all configuration options with a few button presses.

Console Control

All PLCyc1 luminaires support DMX512 control with a choice of 8- or 16-bit control resolution. With the increased development of LED luminaires like PL1 and PLCyc1 with 4 or more colours, additional control is needed for intuitive operation.

All Philips Strand Lighting Neo and ML500 consoles now support extended colour control to simplify programming and luminaire colour matching.

I needed a luminaire that could give me multiple colour choices, wash the walls and the room but not demand too much space. Because I couldn't rig at perfect, even spacing the wide beam angle of the PLCYC1 really helped and worked well together to create a smooth and even wash. I like having the the option of using cool-white, warm-white, or daylight. I find that only having access to RGB can be a problem because you can't generally get the right white to work with other sources in the rig. Having RGB and white is wonderful, however having the option to select whether you're going to use a cool white or a warm white is even better.

The Selecon difference

Delivering on the Promise of LED Lighting

Fewer fixtures to cover the cyclorama, less power and no dimmer circuits makes the PLCyc1 the obvious choice for lighting a medium sized cyclorama.
