Colour Call can be used in conjunction with Strand spotlights, operated from a digital control system and requires power supply and splitter box. CC1 units are supplied with backplates to fit Cantata, Leko, Alto, Toccata and most parcans; CC2 units have built-in cylindrical fan and 4 mounting brackets that will accommodate most studio Fresnels (2kW-5kW).
