Exterior Projection 500

The Exterior™ Projection 500 is a powerful fixture for integrating textures, patterns and graphics in outdoor lighting designs. The fixture can be used for bright and dynamic logo projection as well as precision framing.

Using advanced LED technology, it offers outstanding energy efficiency, compact size and unlimited creative possibilities.

  • Flat-field, high-contrast image projection 
  • Fully weatherized for trouble-free use with minimal maintenance in outdoor installations
  • Packed with features, allowing huge creativity in setting up exciting lighting effects


  • Up to 6100 lumens output with 4 beam angles variants from narrow to wide
  • Powerful close-range and long-range projection
  • Flat-field, high-contrast image projection based on high-power LED engine
  • 4 layers of versatile dynamic effects (colors, gobo projection, gobo animation, prisms/frost)
  • Crisp image projection
  • Rugged IP66-rated housing
  • Minimal maintenance – low total cost of ownership
