impression 240 XL

Building on the market success of the original Impression fixture, and a request for ‘more, more, more’, GLP have developed the impression XL.

The impression XL uses almost three times as many K2 LED’s as the original, with 240 in total, for unprecedented optical performance, both in terms of light output and in terms of color performance. This amount of light makes the XL perfect for longer throw applications, or where a higher level of ambient light is present, such as at daytime outdoor events, outside broadcasts and festivals.

The impression XL uses the same innovative design as its predecessor, featuring no bulky base unit and very low noise operation through the integrated heat sink, whilst its comprehensive menu system is easy to navigate allowing you to personalize the operation of each fixture.

Weighing in at just 23.5 kg / 52 lbs., the impression XL has connectors on its base for rigging with omega brackets and integrated sockets so that half couplers and similar can be mounted directly to the fixture.

The impression XL features flicker free dimming throughout its entire dimming range for all colors and works flawlessly in all camera and broadcast environments. The fixture comes fitted with a 10 degree lens as standard, with 25 degree and 40 degree interchangeable lenses available as optional extras.
Further accessories such as honeycomb fronts, flight cases and a 5 ‘flower’ unit rigging option are also available.

The impression XL features feedback corrected movement with a 660 degree pan range and a 330 degree tilt range with 16 bit resolution and a speedy response due to its low weight.
