Unity by Acclaim Lighting

Acclaim has done it again, releasing a new product with industry-first features that will make your next project stand out.

Unity fundamentally rethinks what an outdoor LED floodlight can be. It uses the all-new Spectrum Five engine to give you perfect, high output / high CRI whites, dynamic white operation, and full color mixing in the same unit. It also provides a single, fully homogenized beam with no color striations or separation. Unity features Acclaim’s ColorSync Digital Color Calibration technology and Aria Wireless control built into every unit.

Spectrum Five Technology gives you more usable colors, including high-output dedicated whites, pastels, and dynamic white options, all in the same system. Our ColorSync digital calibration system ensures your colors are in perfect harmony.

Every Unity fixture features a direct connection to Acclaim's Aria Wireless DMX system, in addition to traditional hardwired DMX.

IP66 sealed construction, IK07 impact protection, and 3G rated for high vibration and bridge applications.

You can find more information at the Acclaim website and from your local Vertex sales office.
