House lighting gets the benefit of LED in a church-ready form factor with Chauvet Professional's new addition to its Ovation line.

Chauvet Professional of Sunrise, Fla., has added a versatile LED house light to its award-winning line of Ovation stage and studio fixtures. The new Ovation H-105WW is a warm white fixture that features chip-on-board (COB) LED technology to produce a flat, even, flattering field of illumination when used as a house light in the church environment.

Powered by a 100-watt, 50,000-hour-rated, 3048K (at full operation) LED source, the Ovation H-105WW is reported to be ideal for performance spaces, houses of worship, education spaces and other venues that want to bring the energy-saving, low-heat, low-maintenance advantages of LEDs to their house lights. In addition, the fixture features convection cooling for completely silent operation, as well as adjustable Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to eliminate flickering, making it an ideal choice for applications that involve TV and video filming.Situation-specific
“Many theaters and churches are so happy with the cost savings, reduced electrical load, and other benefits they’ve enjoyed from LED stage lighting that they now want to make the switch to LED house lights as well,” says Ben Dickmann, product manager for Chauvet Professional. “We designed the Ovation H-105WW not only to meet the growing demand for LED house lights, but to go beyond expectations by offering enhanced performance and features.
“For example, we included COB LED technology on the Ovation H-105WW to provide outstanding smooth and uniform lighting. We also use an innovative radiant cooling design, [since] many modern venues require silent operation. Finally, we made it camera friendly with adjustable PWM, because today many live shows and church services are being videotaped for TV or streamed over the Internet,” Dickmann notes. “In addition to superior performance, we gave the Ovation H-105WW some great added features that make it extremely versatile and convenient to use.”Feature set
Among these added features are four different interchangeable lenses (15-, 30-, 42- and 60-degrees) that come standard with the Ovation H-105WW, allowing adjustments to be made for varying mounting heights. Also included is an egg crate glare reducer, which fits onto the front of the fixture to block out annoying periphery light. Versatile hanging options are provided as well; the unit comes equipped with an attached yoke for pipe mounting and can also be suspended from an integrated loop-eye for use as a pendant light.
Designed to be equally at home in permanent or temporary installations, the Ovation H-105WW includes 5-pin XLR and terminal blocks for DMX connections. Operational in three different DMX channel profiles (1-, 2- or 4-channel), it also features RDM (Remote Device Management) for added programming flexibility. RDM makes the installation process much faster and easier, Dickmann pointed out, since it eliminates the need to have an install electrician climb up on a ladder, lift or scaffolding to access the fixture. “With RDM, the programmer him/herself can address the fixtures, choose which DMX profile to use and even monitor the operating temperature directly from the lighting console. This makes the setup and operation of the entire system much easier,” he says.
Other features on the Ovation H-105WW include 16-bit dimming for ultra-smooth fades, built-in automated programs and a variable strobe (0 to 25 Hz). The unit weighs 14.2 pounds (6.5 kg) and measures 17.4 x 8.7 x 6.4 inches (441 x 221 x 162 mm), and it is CE and MET approved, Chauvet reports.
