VDO Atomic Dot CLD

Hybrid strobe / blinder / videopixel fixture

The Martin VDO Atomic Dot CLD hybrid lighting and video fixture, also available in a WRM color temperature variant, combines a compact strobe, small blinder, video-pixel and small spotlight.

By combining a video-controlled Aura backlight and a bright strobe/blinder dot in one fixture, lighting designers are empowered with greater creative potential to make a bigger impact with audiences than ever before. The fixtures’ compact design also gives designers the ability to place VDO Atomic Dots just about anywhere and deploy them in larger quantities. Integrated support for P3, DMX, Art-Net and sACN eliminates the need for additional interface boxes and onboard P3 eases pixel mapping and using the product as a video controlled strobe or blinder.

VDO Atomic Dots are ideal for rental customers and lighting designers working in concert/touring and TV show sets as well as supporting corporate and nightclub clients.

  • DUAL LAYER FIXTURE

    A high-power, cold white beam combined with a pixel-controllable RGB Aura backlight enables truly, unique effects. Both layers can be controlled individually via P3, DMX, Art-Net, sACN or a mix.

  • COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT

    Packs a lot of punch from a very compact fixture that can be used and hidden in any application. Internal power supply and IP65-rated housing increase usability of this fixture in various applications.

  • EASILY COMBINE MULTIPLE FIXTURES IN ARRAYS

    The smart interlocking mechanics allow fixtures to be combined into battens, arrays or creative shapes. Creative imagination is your only limit.

  • HYBRID DATA AND POWER CABLE

    The hybrid power and data cable carries all power and data for the fixtures, allowing them to be daisy-chained very easily in large quantities.

  • FRONT-ACCESSORY HOLDER

    The industry-standard PAR30-sized front-acessory holder can hold a diffuser to widen the beam-angle of the fixture. It also fits standard barndoors to give the fixture an artistic look on stage.
