The HERCULES 600M™ is among the world's first state-of-the-art
square projection medium power floodlights with full field color changing. The
main purpose which led to the creation of the HERCULES 600M™ has been the idea
of creating light shades and colors on the external walls of buildings.
Furthermore, its indoor use for places like theaters, stages and concerts as
well retail and display establishments, will be also highly appreciated by
architects and designers.
The HERCULES 600M™ medium power floodlight features full field
color changing, crossfades, dimming, preset programs and digital programming
capabilities. The innovative CYM (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta) color changing system
has true color dichroic filters to produce smooth color crossfades throughout
the entire color spectrum. HERCULES 600M™'s unique coloring capabilities open up
a lot of creative opportunities limited only by one's imagination.
The only condition for HERCULES 600M™'s best chromcatic
performance is the projection onto preferably white or light colored walls,
facades and surfaces. When in use, its sequence of colors, which goes from
pastel shades to bright colors, creates a chromatic atmosphere around the
building and gives it an elegant or glamorous look. The HERCULES 600M™ enables
the designer to paint a subtle pastel wash or to create a constellation of vivid
colors. The greatest beauty of the HERCULES 600M™ is the creative power it puts
in your hand.
The HERCULES 600M™'s programmed color changing floodlighting to
mark various holidays - red, white and blue for the Fourth of July; red and
green for Christmas; yellow, orange and white for Thanksgiving; different shades
of green for St. Patrick's Day and various hues of pink for Valentine's Day -
just to name a few - can surely create a positive reference of belonging and
will invoke a warm feeling toward the lighted object and its surroundings.
Companies the world over are realizing the promotional benefits of
exterior lighting. Architectural lighting helps create dreamlike atmosphere
through an ever changing flow of light and color. Multiple fixtures may be
linked together and synchronized for truly unique effects. Just imagine the
possibilities. From the modem architect who creates designs and
specifications for new and exciting buildings to a hotel concerned with
drawing more attention to their building; from an amusement park specifying
more interesting lighting for their attractions, to organizers concerned
with adding that special touch to a special event - whether a company
illuminates a subtle company logo or projects a total wash across the front
of a building - outdoor color changing projectors will soon be everywhere.
And with the quality of the HERCULES 600M™ we lead the way.
Imagine a casino turning gold every time a lucky gambler hits the jackpot;
arena lighting pulsating when the home team scores; an outdoor concert where
the lighting fades in and out to the music; a company headquarters awashed
in color for the arrival of an important client - architectural lighting
applications are virtually endless. Imagine houses of worship, federal,
state, county and municipal buildings as well as historical buildings,
landscapes and natural sites showered with ever changing light and colors
making them special and the pride and joy of their communities. Imagine
shopping malls, retail outlets, entertainment and leisure venues. Imagine
even power stations, bridges, museums and factories! Imagine all this and
much more. Again the possibilities are limitless.
A store's evening image is most productive when illumination from within
the building and outdoor lighting work in tandem to advertise its presence.
A combination of facade illumination, signage, landscape lighting and in
malls and shopping centers, parking lot lighting identify the store and its
exterior environment. Clear messages can be sent to shoppers by controlling
the relative brightness and color of these elements. Adapting from our
theatrical and entertainment lighting technology, designers and architects
can develop customized illumination systems that boost a store's
contemporary image and reinforce its retail concept. Major stores in
shopping centers can use the night sky as a background for nighttime
illumination. Programmed levels of colored light add to the store's
personality and the consumers level of expectation. A central rotunda, for
example, can glow dramatically at night to silhouette a panorama of
customers and merchandise displays. Evening shoppers will have an invitingly
color changing wash illuminated top-to-bottom view of the interior activity.
Retail architecture requires bright self-illuminated signs which should be
calibrated so that they can hold their own against powerful pole-mounted
parking lot lights or street lights. Potential customers become lost
customers when they cannot find their way or read signage because of glare
from overhead flood lighting. Personal security plays a major role in
deciding where to shop. Customers are sensitive to visual cues that effect
their perceptions of safety and well-being. Contrast ratios influence
outdoor security. If the ratio is too low, customers feel uncomfortable and
will avoid the area.
Enter the HERCULES 600M™. It solves this problem very easily since it's
bright, colorful and features a variety of motion possibilities. It gives
the feeling that something is always happening, like an Architectural
Happening with its dynamic sequences to choreographed settings. It could
save a programmed cycle of colors which play across a curtain wall and
masonry facing. Or inside at the atrium projecting at the vertical surfaces.
Clearly HERCULES 600M™'s storefront illumination communicates merchandise
appeal, produces a dynamic light show after sunset and delivers safety for
after dark shoppers.
Corporate identity can be dramatically enhanced by projecting
the company's colors on its headquarters building. Entertainment
and hospitality venues i.e. movie theaters, casinos, bowling
centers and restaurants as well as retail establishments such as
shopping malls and specialty stores can perfectly stand out in
the highly crowded and extremely competitive scene of urban and
suburban buildings by using it as an effective attention getter
and visual reminder. It reminds the passerby that those
buildings not only exist but have become a focal point landmark.
The HERCULES 600M™ is an important component in the branding
process in that it enables the use of colors and motion to
become a strong element of recognition of that particular site.
