the next step in laser and intelligent lighting evolution

Lightwave International’s Phenom hangs, powers, and controls like the LED and arc lamp moving fixtures it replaces. Its embedded media server provides unlimited high-intensity colors and effects from a lightweight, energy-efficient, and affordable fixture. Phenom lives perfectly in traditional moving light ecosystems by sharing the same style of rigging, power distribution, and Artnet/SACN control commonly found in live production.

In the United States, Phenom may only be operated by trained technicians with an Audience Scanning Variance. While you still have complete creative direction of your performance, a designated Laser Safety Officer is required on-site whenever the lasers are in use.

  • Dimensions: 15.75″ L x 10.75″ W x 18.5″ H (40cm x 27cm x 47cm)
  • Weight: 42lbs (19Kg)
  • Power: 90-240 VAC, True1 In/Out,  360VA MAX
  • Head Travel: Pan 540° (Fine 0.0082°) / Tilt 270° (Fine 0.0041°)
  • Head Max Speed: Pan 2.30 sec / Tilt 1.20 sec
  • Zoom: TRUE Zero to 60°
  • Signal Input/Output: Beyond Network, Artnet, SACN, DMX
  • Network:  4 x 1000MB Ethernet for flexible topology
  • Lamp Source: Lightwave Prism Laser Engine by Arctos
  • Audience Scanning: Integrated

Why phenom?

  • Phenom v3 (New for 2023) combines traditional lighting features with crisply defined laser effects and millions of vivid colors.
  • Phenom is a unique moving head that is fully self-contained with control and laser components integrated as one fixture. No ILDA control via computer, external hardware, or software is needed. Phenom controls from any lighting designer’s console of choice using a 32 or 50 channel personality.
  • Every Phenom has an integrated media server with thousands of effects for every performance. This library can be expanded indefinitely with customized effects by Lightwave International.
  • Phenoms are designed with easy rigging in mind. Phenom rigs, powers, and controls like the LED and arc lamp moving-fixtures it replaces. Dual input and output connectors for powerCON TRUE1 and DMX allow minimal cabling when implementing Phenom into an existing lighting rig. With a weight of 42 pounds (19.1kg), maximum power draw of 360VA, and dimensions of 15.75” x 10.75” x 18.5” (40cm x 27cm x 47cm), Phenom fits into any lighting design.
  • Phenom may be controlled directly via Artnet/SACN -or- in hybrid mode through Beyond while still maintaining full pan/tilt control from a single fixture personality.
