The Vari-Lite VL5LED WASH is a true modern update to the legendary VL5. This compact, high output LED wash fixture brings a host of modern features to the familiar form factor of this unique fixture. The Dichro*fusion®blades, first seen in the VL6500 WASH, supply smooth, variable diffusion while the RGBALC color system provides a wide range of rich color options. To simplify setup and programming of this color system, the innovative SmartColor Control System gives designers adjustability without complexity.


    The beautiful colors of the VL5LED are reflected on the Dichro*fusion® blades, which bring the vintage stylings of the original VL5 to create a strong visual element on stage. For further visual options, a separate ring of LEDs light up the Dichro*fusion® blades a different color than the light coming from source engine. The LED blade lights, along with an onboard motorized zoom, offers a range of new visual options and bring more flexibility to this classic fixture.
