These lights were used on the floor / mounted on the vertical trusses at Venue Church.
Functionality and life span seem to be right on par with one another. While the R2’s are obviously much higher quality and offer a brighter and wider beam, I believe the Stealth Spots would accomplish what we are looking for in comparison to Venue Church.
These lights were used on the ceiling to provide coloured house lights at Venue church.
Functionality and life span seem to be right on par with one another. Again the main difference here is brightness and the ability to zoom in and out with the Chauvet lens. If we went with a more affordable option, I would recommend we use 9 (Venue recommended 6 of the Chauvet’s) of these in the ceiling, and 2 of them for inside our stage trusses.
These lights were used as the main stage spot lights at Venue Church.
Both of these lights are very powerful and bright ellipsoidals. They offer the same colour tone and do what you need spot lights to do. The biggest con with Chauvet is that they require a specific 19, 26, 36 or 50 degree lens’s for $400 each, while the Encore doesn’t need one.
These lights were used as the side stage lighting / overhead lighting at Venue Church.
This one for me comes down to price. They seem extremely similar in their function and light output, but the Elation’s are cheaper and come with barn doors. The downside is that they are 5 pin, but adapters are very cheap and we already have a couple. Either of these lights would be a great choice, but if we want to save $550 a light + $560 for 4 barn doors, this might be the way to go.
These lights were used above the screen to provide coloured stage lights and effects.
The biggest difference I’m finding is that the price goes up the brighter the light is. They each have motorized zoom, and the same tilt abilities with a long lifespan. The ADJ Vizi seems unique in having the Ultraviolet LED, and sits in between these two as still a good option.
The R1 gives the brightest light with the highest degree of angles, but at a significant cost.
Our current moving heads are only 8 watts per led, so any light that we upgrade to will be significantly brighter. If we go with ADJ or Eliminator then I would suggest we get 6 instead of 4.
