Color-rich LED lighting that you have to see to believe.

The Desire™ Series of luminaires produces such brilliant, high-quality light. And with technology not found in other LED fixtures, you won’t believe how feature-rich and user-friendly they are.

The Desire D40 luminaire combines 40 Luxeon® Rebel emitters onto one unit, for bright, efficient lighting. The PAR-shaped washlight is a multipurpose tool that can be combined into a rig with conventional fixtures or used by itself. The user-interface on the rear of the unit puts the control in your hands – Desire luminaires can be managed by any RDM-enabled controller or on their own.

Each fixture offers Quick Setup options, so you can quickly and easily adjust the luminaire’s performance. Stage, XT (Exterior)/Architectural, High-Impact, Studio and General settings further customize the light output for specific uses.

‘LED lighting doesn’t have to be ugly.’ That’s the philosophy behind the x7 Color System™ technology built into every Desire luminaire. While other LED fixtures on the market produce muted colors with a small range of hues and unnatural white light that makes everything look gray and washed out, Desire luminaires offer unprecedented color capabilities for beautiful, pure light. By combining up to seven LED colors per fixture, the x7 Color System creates a balanced blend of deep, saturated colored or natural white light. And with the Desire luminaires, you get even more color flexibility through the Adaptive Color Control system. There are five DMX profiles to choose from – Calibrated RGB, Calibrated HSI, Calibrated HSIC, Direct, and Studio – so you can decide how the luminaires will perform. The additional Red Shift option allows the Desire fixtures to mimic a tungsten fade, and the Plus 7 Mode gives you control over each LED color to increase or decrease individual colors. Using the built-in color-pickers on ETC lighting control consoles, you can pick a gel match for the Desire fixtures to produce, or you can modify the color to get the exact shade you want.

Desire D40 color arrays
You have even more options when it comes to the D40 color array. The luminaires are available in white, saturated color, or color-spectrum-specific arrays.

Vivid™
Desire D40 Vivid luminaires give you the broadest color range for spectrally-balanced saturated and tinted light. Able to match the color from your gelled tungsten sources, Vivid luminaires fit the bill when you need high-brightness light with bold impact.

Lustr®+
You get the best all-around theatrical-quality light from the D40 Lustr+ arrays. The x7 Color System is optimized in Lustr+ units to create clean white and tinted light, to bring out the beauty of set pieces, and render individual skin tones naturally.

Fire™ and Ice™
Selador Desire D40 Fire and Ice fixtures offer extreme x7 color and maximum energy savings. Fire luminaires produce warm-spectrum light for smoldering reds, oranges and yellows, and Ice fixtures output intense blues, greens and purples.
