Chauvet Maverick MK Pyxis Overview
If we had to pick a favorite from our lighting inventory, it would have to be the Chauvet Maverick MK Pyxis.
Why do we love it? Let’s start with our 3 favorite features.
- Independent outer light ring
9 x 15 W RGBW LEDs form an outer ring around a central 60 W RGBW LED, which can be operated independently.
- Animated outer light ring
There are countless ways to animate the 9 LEDs on the Maverick’s outer ring. The only limit is your creativity.
- Infinite Pan/Tilt
Most lighting fixtures can only pan 540° and tilt 230°. The Maverick just keeps going.
