Elation Professional’s award-winning Sniper 2R™ multi-effect light just got better and brighter. Elation now offers the Sniper PRO™, a new and improved hybrid effects projector, scanner and laser simulator with more power, more effects and greater speed than the original Sniper 2R™.
Featuring the new 280W Philips™ MSD Platinum 14R lamp and emitting an ultra-narrow 2.5° beam, the Sniper PRO is capable of producing the same precise beam and laser like effects as its successful predecessor but now with 3 times the brightness.
“We met with a lot of success with the original Sniper when it launched in 2014, but we also had some customers tell us they wanted more power and more color choice,” said Elation Professional Sales Director Eric Loader. “So we increased the lamp from 132 watts to 280 watts and upgraded with CMY and more effects to give designers the chance to use the Sniper’s unique look on larger shows and installs.”
This enhanced Sniper has been upgraded to a CMY color mixing system with an additional 12-slot dichroic color wheel with split color possibilities. The Sniper PRO also offers a greater variety of dynamic effects from 20 static-stamped gobos and houses a bidirectional animation system for more dramatic animated looks. Added to the original Sniper’s 3-facet prism is an 8-facet and linear rotating prism for greater beam and effect multiplication possibilities. The high-precision beam can be further manipulated using a variable speed shutter, mechanical dimmer and strobe. All these effects can be delivered at even faster speeds thanks to an improved X / Y / Z rotation mirror system with focus.
The Sniper PRO can do what no other light in the rig can, giving designers a new tool to create stunning light shows. The Sniper can spread laser-like effects including liquid sky, laser wave, and laser cone effects, all moving at speeds never seen before. And the Sniper PRO allows these effects to be projected and scanned into the crowd without the hassle of laser regulations.
The Sniper PRO is DMX controllable and includes multiple built-in pattern and control macros that make programming even quicker and easier. A 4-button touch control panel and LCD menu display provide for easy hands-on addressing with easy-to-read fixture menus and messages. Ruggedly built and compact at 16.1″ x 13.9″ x 13.8″ (408mm x 353mm x 351mm) and weighing 29 lbs (13.2 kg), the Sniper PRO will fit comfortably in any rig or installation.
Professional grade Neutrik 3- and 5-pin DMX in/out and Powercon in/out connections are included and multiple units can easily be linked together for customizable setups. An auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages and frequencies allowing the fixture to operate anywhere in the world.
The Sniper 2R proved to be a truly innovative game-changing product unlike anything on the market. The Sniper PRO continues that tradition as the perfect high-energy effect light for nighttime venues, tours and special events.
