Osram's New Kreios Fresnel and Profile Offer High Output, Compact Design

With their high light output the highly efficient Kreios Fresnel and Kreios Profile LED spotlights provide excellent performance, particularly on small to medium-size stages. Their flickerfree light, which can be infinitely dimmed via the protocol DMX512 or manually, makes them the perfect spotlights for events where many different light settings are needed. The zoom range of the Fresnel is between 14 and 77 degrees, and that of the Profile is between 20 and 36 degrees. Thanks to their compact design the LED spotlights are also particularly suitable for use at different event locations. The Kreios Fresnel and the Kreios Profile will be available from the start of 2016.
Kreios Fresnel: powerful lighting from tiny dimensions:

With its high-performance optics and an illuminance of 7,146 lux (Fresnel Warm White) or 3,863 lux (Fresnel RGBW), the Kreios Fresnel is ideal for versatile stage lighting. Thanks to a life of up to 40,000 hours and its compact size, this latest addition to the Kreios family can be used continuously in small theaters and can be easily transported between venues. With a color rendering index (CRI) of more than 92, the Kreios Fresnel White offers excellent color rendering so that everything can be shown in natural colors. The color temperature of the RGBW version of the spotlight can be varied between 2,800 and 6,500 kelvin to achieve different atmospheric lighting effects.

Kreios Profile: a spotlight for precision lighting:

As a powerful spotlight (11,966 lux) providing warm white light, the Kreios Profile is perfect for focusing on individual elements on a stage such as actors, singers or scenery. The zoom function enables the illuminated area to be tightly controlled, and the dimming function allows the intensity of the light to be adjusted. Like the Kreios Fresnel, the Kreios Profile can be controlled manually or digitally (DMX512). This spotlight is impressive for its high-quality design and its ease of use.
