Robe Lighting, Inc MMX Blade
Moving Head Profile Fixture

OUR PART #  ROBIN-MMX-BLADE-CDBD


The Rode Robin MMX Blade™ is based on the new technology MMX discharge fixture, comparable output to 1200 W luminaires, the MMX Blade adds a framing shutter system into the optical path. 

Four fast, smooth moving, shutter blades are individually angled and positioned within a frame which itself can rotate through 90°. As well as providing a sharp or soft, precisely repeatable, frame for the projected image, the system produces a new series of fast moving in-air effects through pre-programmed blade shape and movement sequences. The MMX Blade includes many of the innovative features of the MMX including the Robe exclusive Hot-Spot lamp control feature that allows remote adjustment of flat beam uniformity or power beam hot-spot.

NOTE: Optional Road Case Available
