Abstract: Described is dynamic control of the temperature of the envelope of an HID lamp in order to stabilize the output color temperature of the lamp. As the lamp power is changed, or environmental factors alter the lamp envelope temperature, the system senses these changes and adjusts the lamp cooling systems so as to move the lamp envelope temperature back to the desired point.
Abstract: A zoom optical system and automated luminaire are provided. The zoom optical system includes a light source and compensator, variator, and objective lens groups. The light source illuminates an object in an object plane. The compensator lens group is optically coupled to the object without intervening lenses, has a positive optical power, six lenses, and moves relative to the object plane. The variator lens group is optically coupled to the compensator lens group without intervening lenses, has a negative optical power, three lenses, and moves relative to the object plane and the compensator group. The objective lens group is optically coupled to the variator lens group without intervening lenses, has a second positive optical power, three lenses, remains in a fixed position relative to the object plane, and projects an image of the object without intervening lenses between the objective lens group and the projected image.
Abstract: A remotely directable luminaire with an improved color LED homogenization system for LED luminaires employing a plurality of LED arrays where an array employs a plurality of discrete peak LED groups and dichroic mirrors maximized for transmission/reflection of around the groups of LED's discrete peaks to generate a directional homogenized color light beam with additive color mixing.
Abstract: Described are an improved automated luminaire and luminaire systems employing a matching lenslet pair beam shaper. The beam shaper employs nesting lenslets that are articulated so that the degree of beam shaping modulation is continuously adjustable across a range of modulation.
Abstract: Described is a method for controlling the movement of LED devices in luminaires, specifically to a method relating to allowing both synchronized and independent pan and tilt movement of LED light modules in a light curtain. The LEDs may be mounted in a plurality of modules. The modules may be in a linear arrangement. The LEDs may be mounted in a plurality of modules that are arrayed in a two dimensional array. The modules in the linear arrangement or in the two dimensional array may be mounted in groups forming modular group assemblies where modular group assembly are independently articulated to pan and/or tilt the modules mounted thereon independent of other modular group assemblies.
Abstract: This specification describes an improved automated luminaire employing an improved laser optical module with a laser module and an optical module, which expands the width of the laser light beam emitted from the laser module.
Abstract: Disclosed is an LED light source automated luminaire with a multi-sided elongated light collimator/mixer/integrator with receiving lens and output lens both with spill shields and where the receiving spill shield is nesting in the output spill shield. The elongated integrator has a square input cross-section and a hexagon or octagon output cross section and is tapered so that the input cross section is smaller than the output cross section.
Abstract: Described herein are an improved automated luminaire and luminaire system employing an automated adjustable scrim system, which provides adjustable and selective intensity control across a light beam.
Abstract: An automated luminaire includes a light source, a compensation module, an optical device, and a controller. The light source has an ellipsoidal reflector and a fixedly mounted short arc discharge lamp and can move along its optical axis. The compensation module includes a diffuser. The optical device produces either a modified or unmodified light beam. If the light beam is modified, the controller either moves the light source to a first position or positions first and second portions of the diffuser in the light beam. If the light beam is unmodified and the light source is in the first position, the controller automatically moves the light source to a second position. If the light beam is unmodified and the diffuser is in the light beam, the controller automatically removes the diffuser from the light beam.
Abstract: A gimbaled remotely automated pan and tilt luminaire with a multi-gobo rotating-gobo imager between a focusing light source and a highly faceted Fresnel output lens with sharp pointed facets which is articulated to move along the light path closer to or further away from the light source and gobo imager.
Abstract: The present disclosure provides LED array systems with a control system for arrays of LED array luminaires that allows for display of images or light patterns across and array of luminaires over a low bandwidth control protocol.
Abstract: An automated luminaire includes a light engine having a multi-color LED array light source, a light guide which incompletely homogenizes such that colored light beams visibly retain separation and individual color, and a zoom lens system that projects the incompletely homogenized light beams in a spreading pattern that opens and closes as lenses are moved toward and away from the light guide.
Abstract: An automated luminaire with an array of light sources configured in a plurality of primary TIR optics with central light blocks. The light blocks are configured to block or redirect light beam at angles likely to cause undesirable light spill.
Abstract: Described is a motion control system for drive motors in automated multiparameter luminaires that employs jerk (3rd derivative of position as a function of time) to offset the resonance characteristics of the motor as loaded by the components in the luminaire, so as to correct and mitigate movement caused by external vibration sources.

Abstract: Described are an improved automated multi source luminaire and luminaire systems. More particularly a multicolor LED array luminaire system with a series of lenses and light louvers to control the light beam.
Abstract: An automated luminaire with dual over-sized graphic wheels that can be inserted and positioned into or out of the light path of the luminaire together as a unit and each graphic wheel can be rotated independent of the other wheel.
Abstract: Presented is a multiparameter automated luminaire comprised of a plurality of light engine modules, a plurality of which by design homogenize light emitted by its light sources more fully than at least one of the light engine modules, which is intentionally designed to noticeably not fully homogenize the light emitted by its light sources. In the preferred embodiment, the non homogenizing light engine module also includes light modulators optionally engagable to more fully homogenize the light output from that light engine module.
