    Someone beat you to a new Chauvet product!
    http://controlbooth.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6038&highlight=chauvet
    Anyway, I think that this thing is a huge step in the right direction. Chauvet has really been pushing the baundaries of what LED's can do for entertainment lighting, first with their LED pars, then with such fixtures as the Colorado3 and now the Colorado1, and also the Vue I, II, and III DJ lights, and then with the Elan DJ effect light, and now this! Gobo projection via LED's! As well as it's complementary wash fixture. Oh, and don't forget that Chauvet also has an LED wall and an LED moving head. Yes, I am very bored, and yes, I did just link over half of Chauvet's LED catalog using embedded urls.

    It gives an output of 100 ft candles or 1100 lux, which is the same thing but if you don't specify at what distance surely this is meaningless or am I over-tired?Lumens is the total output and lux is the intensity at a given point.

    This could, however, due to it's size, be great for tucking away as a set mount fixture. I am actually working on a show now where something like this, which doesn't have to be terribly bright, could be mounted on some archways to light under a roof in the set. It would give a lot more flexibility than just stickups, though it would mean a lot more DMX runs for me... But it isn't in my budget to do that.
