Prodigy color engine provides millions of colors for fixtures converted from 575W or 750W to LED
Largo, Florida (January 12, 2016) – The Prodigy color engine from SeaChanger™ offers full compatibility with the Electronic Theatre Controls (ETC) Source 4WRD™ LED retrofit assembly. Prodigy can provide color mixing for the new assembly, which allows owners of Source Four® color fixtures to convert to an LED light source, and enjoy cooler operation and energy saving benefits.
The SeaChanger Prodigy is specially engineered to provide color mixing for fixtures using a white LED light source. Prodigy derives color from dichroic color wheels, not the light source, providing users the same high color rendering and extensive palette achieved with traditional fixtures. Its CYMxG color wheels can produce millions of colors with changes in in less than 0.3 seconds. The heat reflective wheels are inert to temperature damage and resistant to fading.
Using the white LED and SeaChanger combination, the white LEDs are designed to be replaceable like a common theatrical lamp, thus making Prodigy a more sustainable solution as there is no need to replace the entire LED fixture. Prodigy works in concert with customers’ white LED sources by featuring 2 DMX modes: 4-channel “Legacy” CYMxG mode and a new 5-channel “Prodigy” CYMxG+Dim mode, which activates dimming on the LED power outlet to customers’ white LED sources while simultaneously adjusting the color temperature to provide tungsten-like dimming.
