The XM 1200 Spot is a new moving-head light fitted with a discharge 1200 W lamp (MSR 1200/SA), particularly suitable for use in concerts, shows, tours and special events, as well as in clubs, theatres, TV studios, permanent installations and all other applications requiring a light with high luminous output and a full set of functions.
The XM 1200 Spot incorporates motorized focussing, a 13°-31° motorized zoom with auto-focus, motorized iris, 2 gobo
wheels (6 indexable 16 bit gobos + open each), CMY linear colour mixing system + colour wheel (7 colours + open), 3
rotating prisms, frost, and electronic or magnetic ballast
The XM 1200 Spot is designed to resist all the rigours of continuous use.
The light body is made in anodized aluminium, with head and fork covering in ABS.

Optical unit
The XM 1200 Spot is fitted with a Philips MSR 1200/SA discharge
lamp (GY22 lampholder base), with a colour temperature of 5,600 °K
and a splendid luminous flux of 96,000 Lumens.
Colour rendering is greater than 80, with excellent reproduction of
The lamp ensures stability of colour temperature for its entire lifespan and uniform emission over the whole spectrum, combined with
good operating reliability.
Duration is 750 hours, with replacement recommended before 1000
The lamp can be switched on or off by DMX, and is switched back on
automatically in case of accidental switching off.
The efficient cooling system allows it to always work at the ideal temperature, thereby extending its normal lifespan, offering significant
advantages for users, who in this way can avoid costly early replacement.
In addition, the XM 1200 Spot incorporates various automatic
systems to protect the lamp and reduce power consumption, such as
power attenuation in case of overheating, and "power saving mode"
(reduction of power consumption to 650 W three seconds after shutter closure).
Other recommended lamps: Osram HTI 1200W/SE PP; GE Lighting
CSR1200W SA.
The optical unit is composed of 4 lenses with multi-coated treatment
and a cold-mirror faceted parabolic reflector with dichroic treatment
and heat sink.
The combination of this optical unit with the Philips MSR 1200/SA
lamp gives a uniform and intense beam of light, with a very high light
efficiency (over 20,000 Lux at 5 metres).
The XM 1200 Spot features quick and precise motorized focussing
that gives images great clarity and definition.
The XM 1200 Spot contains a motorized zoom (zoom ratio 2.6:1,
focal length 55-165 mm) with a notable range (from 13° of minimum
beam opening to 31° maximum).
The zoom is complemented by a convenient auto-focus system that
helps operators reduce programming time, avoiding continuous
manual focus adjustments.
XM 1200 Spot
Dimmer / Shutter / Strobe
Two thin aluminium plates control the light emitted by the shutter,
combining 3 functions in a single system.
Dimmer: emitted light is controlled by progressive and linear
Shutter: instantaneous shutter opening/closure.
Strobe: mechanical strobe effect (frequency variable from 0.86
flashes/sec to 6.6 flashes/sec); electronic strobe effect (frequency variable from 6.5 flashes/sec to 25 flashes/sec).
The XM 1200 Spot contains 2 gobo wheels with 6 gobos + open on
each wheel, ideal for adding lively and creative effects to light beams.
The gobos rotate in both directions, and are indexable (16 bits).
Three types of gobo are installed: metal (in special steel); dichro (in
dichroic glass for projecting high-definition images); glass (to reproduce unusual shapes).
Superimposition of the 2 gobo wheels and a third effects wheel
allows a large number of combinations to be created.
Using the motorized focus, it is possible to project clear and sharp
images or to soften their edges with creative blur effects.
Gobo changes with synchronized blackout are also possible.
The gobos can be changed rapidly and without tools, by just removing a spring to extract them and reinsert replacements in the right
The gobos have an external diameter of 37 mm and an internal diameter of 30 mm, with thicknesses between 0.25 and 5 mm.
In addition to the two gobo wheels, the XM 1200 Spot has a third
wheel with a series of effects that permit modifications to the light
beam or changes in the images projected, greatly expanding the
options available to lighting designers.
The rotating and indexable Beam shaper (0°-180°) generates elongated
beams, very useful to light large areas like backgrounds, etc.
The Frost filter projects a broad and homogeneous beam with soft
edges, ideal for giving uniform colour to backdrops, etc.
3 Prisms with 3, 4 and 5 facets, indexable and with variable-speed
rotation in both directions, create highly sophisticated light effects.
The rotation speed and direction of prisms and gobos are independent, giving a vast variety of possible combinations.
The motorized iris, with its fast and silent movements, allows lighting
designers to make linear adjustments to light beam width.
XM 1200 Spot
Pan / Tilt
Pan is 540° in 5.6 seconds and Tilt is 270° in 4.3 seconds.
16-bit movement resolution guarantees high-precision aim.
The carefully balanced distribution of head and fork weights and the high
power of the stepper motors permit instantaneous acceleration with
minimal inertia times.
Repositioning of the head in the last position memorized is automatic and
immediate in case of knocks.
3 different speeds are available, allowing Pan and Tilt movements to be
personalized in lighting designs, but maintaining the same fluidity of movement and stopping precision.
Standard speed (preselected) is ideal for most uses.
Slow permits slow movements, suitable to light particularly sensitive and
elegant moments.
Quicker movements and aiming are possible with Fast, giving greater dynamism to light designs.
The XM 1200 Spot uses a CMY colour synthesis system with 6 palettes for gradual and linear insertion, together with a colour wheel (7
colours + open).
The combination of the CMY system and the colour wheel gives lighting designers a virtually infinite range of colours, from the fullest
through to pale hues, with the possibility of accurately defining
Rainbow effects and colour changes with synchronized blackout are
also possible.

Access to the main components (motors, wheels, etc) is
very easy for technicians.
The lamp can be rapidly replaced by unscrewing the three
screws securing the
lampholder on the rear of the
light. The head cover is
removed by turning 4 screws
(two for each half-shell).
The XM 1200 Spot has 4
fixing points on the bottom of
the light and a bracket supplied as a standard accessory, complete with rapid
fast-lock closure/release (1/4
of a turn), to which aliscaf
clamps, etc. can be fixed for
installation on trusses.
