Ape Labs is known to be "Tiny but Mighty". The original Ape Labs Coin took that to the next level, weighing in at only about a half-pound, and still packing a powerful punch!
The Coin 2.0 IP ups the ante signicantly, as it comes in at the same size, but is more than 2x the brightness of the previos generation Coin. It is extremely versatile as all of the Can 2.0 accessories fit on the Coin 2.0. The Coin 2.0 is essentially the Can 2.0, but without the battery. This reduces the size and reduces the price. It's perfect for installations and mobile set-ups that don't need battery....or it can be easily converted into a battery fixture by adding a USB battery bank. Simply plug one, two, or three Coin 2.0's into a standard USB battery bank and you'll be totally wireless, just like the Can 2.0!
Plus, the new AmberWhite LED technology allows color for reproduction that was never possible before. With 29 built-in color presets designed specifically for the event industry by industry professionals, the Coin 2.0 allows the user to create incredible lighting designs with just the push of a button. Crafted in Germany with a careful balance of totally reengineered optics merged with the warmth of the AmberWhite LED technology, the Coin 2.0 is an incredibly flexible fixture, excellent for uplighting, unique Fresnel effect uplighting, ambient lighting, dance floor lighting, stage lighting, design washes, table lighting, pin spotting, room washing, tube effects, and beyond.
Control / Operation:
Ape Labs is known to "Keep it Simple" when it comes to controlling lights. A beginner with no instructions can typically operate an Ape Labs fixture within seconds of picking up an ApeRemote or opening the app. But its simplicity does not lack in features. Two of the most famous features are "Grouping" and "MusikMode".
Grouping allows the user to create DMX-Like shows on the fly by grouping any number of mixed & matched Ape Labs SKUs on up to four groups. Then being able to control groups individually or universally.
MusikMode will automatically create a music-based light show with the press of a button. It uses proprietary technology that analyzes the sound in the room and total number of Ape Labs fixtures to build a constantly evolving light show. Just don't call it "Sound Active".
When comparing Ape Labs LUX values to competitor values, make sure to look at single color ratings. If only a single LUX value is given for a fixture, it's most likely an "All On" rating. This means that every color is combined when rating.
The Ape Labs Coin 2.0 IP comes standard with 65° Effect Lens, but four alternative optics are available. Below are the LUX ratings for each color, with each beam angle, at both 1m and 2m distances.
**With 15 degree wash optics, the Coin 2.0 LUX ratings average 227% (or 2.27x brighter) than the original Coin @2m
