Joker 1600 – Not Just Another HMI

The Joker 1600 is the newest of the Joker generation of daylight fixtures.  At 1600W, the Joker 1600 is comparable to over 6000W of quartz fixture output and produces twice as much, or one full stop more light, as our Joker 800.

The Joker 1600 is available in three variations:

The Joker 1600 Bug-Lite has no optics.  It's bare-bulb output is optimal for use in lightbanks and lanterns, creating perfectly even distribution within such accessories, eliminating hot spots and maximizing output.  It can even be used pointing straight down.

The Joker 1600 Beamer includes an 8” specular reflector and a set of 4 traditional PAR 64 lenses – Medium, Wide, Super-Wide and a Frosted Fresnel.  These lenses provide varying light patterns from 5 to 45 degrees and a maximum output due to the reflector finish.
 
The Joker 1600 ZOOM Beamer is revolutionary.  This lensless, focusable Beamer gives 15 to 65 degrees of even light output.  With its physical similarities to a faceted umbrella, the soft finish beautifully distributes light across your subject.  The ZOOM Beamer reflector was specifically engineered around the radiant image of our new 1600W lamp, providing for the best and most efficient performance possible.

The Electronic Power Supply
is not only quiet, but smaller than comparable ballasts (even those of less wattage).  It’s capable of running on a 15 amp / 120 volt circuit, is dimmable, and has selectable frequency options for extreme high speed shooting.
 
The Joker 1600 comes in several kit options, all within one case, for the ultimate portable, big gun lighting kit.
