Color Force II™

Game Changed Again

50% BrighterFrom the makers of one of the most popular professional cyc lights, Chroma-Q does it again: the multi award-winning Color Force II™, a batten that delivers formidable output and superior colour blending, all with smooth even coverage.  With four powerful homogenised cells per foot/305mm, these units can be grouped and controlled to release your creativity. Unsightly colour shadowing is eliminated with this innovative optical system that gives power enough to light nearly 12m of cyclorama.  Perfect for a wide range of cyclorama, flood and wall washing applications where a powerful throw is needed. Available in 1.8m / 6 ft, 1.2m / 4 ft, 0.3m / 1 ft versions, these fixtures are specifically designed to fit in flight cases used with the original Color Force.
