Bring the beauty of natural light to your production. With superior color-matching technology, with precision and detail the VL1600 Profile will provide you with endless design opportunities and flexibility, and is the perfect addition to your existing rig of VL2600 lighting fixtures.

The Vari-Lite VL1600 Profile combines a high-definition tunable white LED source with CMY color mixing. The tunable white engine lets designers achieve warm and cool light from a single luminaire without sacrificing output or CRI, along with a wide range of colors from subtle pastels to bold saturated colors. The VL1600 Profile includes the innovative Vari*frost system, giving designers a truly seamless graduated frost that diffuses the entire aperture at one time. This effect can be controlled remotely from the console and doesn't require you to change glass or add filters. 

To simplify startup and minimize movement in the rig, the patented reduced-movement calibration system in the VL1600 Profile calibrates pan and tilt on the fixture while only requiring it to move to 50/50 home position during the process. Fixtures are calibrated in less time, with less lasting effect or potential for damage to the rig or hanging scenery. 

  • Precision high-output profile luminaire designed for theatre and studio - ideal moving head fixture for precision key lighting and special effects in the most demanding of productions.
  • CMY Color mixing and fast-change fixed color wheel - a wide color spectrum mixing both pastel and saturated colors matched to existing Vari-Lite fixtures
  • Vari*front variable frost system - smooth frost adjustable from edge softening to full wash diffusion without adding filters or changing glass
  • Four frame shutter system with near-the-optics positioning - precise framing and focus
  • Exclusive VL*FX animation wheel designed for theatre - updated animation wheel designed to replicate natural lighting effects such as fire, water, and earth tones.
  • Limited movement calibration start up - reduce risk of the fixture hitting set objects or shaking the rig. Minimal calibration start-up noise.
  • Adjustable frequency to exceed camera frame rates - camera friendly fixtures for IMAG or televised events.
  • Multi-mode fan control including standard, studio, whisper, and fanless silent modes - adjust settings to control fan noise. Offers a low dB experience across all frequencies, eliminating buzzing or hums from an otherwise quiet device. 
  • Rotating gobo wheel, zoom, and iris - professional features designed for theatrical lighting. Multiple visual options for a variety of uses. 
  • Nose cone accessory mounting options - easily add additional filters or other accessories as desired
  • Size and weight comparable to VL2600 Profile - works seamlessly in rigs using VL2600

Pandemic Availability Notice

Please Note: Due to unprecedented raw material and component shortages for finished goods throughout our industry, lead times for items that aren't currently in stock are longer than normal and cannot be guaranteed at present. Equipment needed by a firm date must be noted at time of order. While VLS cannot guarantee delivery by those dates, we will work with our suppliers to do everything possible to meet deadlines. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Same Day Shipping Cutoff time
(Due to Pandemic-related availability issues, this policy is currently suspended)

Online orders received by noon Eastern time typically ship the same day. If your delivery due date is critical please note your due date in the order messages at checkout, and then contact us.

Why Noon? Well, while we stock quite a few items in our warehouse, many items we have dropshipped by our vendors. They need time to process the order, so to ensure that we can get the order to the vendor and give them enough time to ship it out the same day, we need to get the order to them as early as possible in the day.

Shipping Rating

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight and dimension based, as this is the method that FedEx and UPS use to rate the package's cost to ship.

Returns Policy

We understand things happen and items occasionally need to be returned. To make things as hassle-free as possible, we have dedicated pages about our Returns Policy (what’s eligible to be returned) and our Return Process (how to go about returning eligible items)
