The XT-1 has a very fast mechanical iris, variable soft edge and electronic strobing. It also offers smooth CMY colour mixing and the CTO is also variable. There is a fixed colour wheel with interchangeable dichroic filters, allows instant colour choices. Two rotating Lithopattern® wheels, each with seven patterns plus open, provide a large number of output patterns and images.
