Merlin is the culmination of an ambitious project to produce a powerful, rugged followspot for the touring market. Designed to complement Robert Juliat’s Grand, Compact and Ultra-Compact ranges, Merlin is the result of in-depth consultation with rental companies, lighting designers and professional followspot operators.With an output that belies its 2500W HMI lamp and a massive 3°-12° beam range, Merlin covers both long and medium throw ranges in one unit.

Merlin delivers a performance that outshines the ever-increasing power of LED lighting and videowall backlighting, while newly designed bodywork ensures Merlin is easy to transport, install and maintain, tough enough for the road and supremely tourable.
