Marietta, GA — At LDI 2019, Canto USA gave a preview of our RETRO-HPL series, the latest addition to the RETRO line of products. The RETRO-HPL is the only theatrical LED retrofit that has an Energy Star 2.0 Certification. It is designed to replace an HPL 575 lamp used in PAR fixtures. The RETRO-HPL is currently offered in three configurations: 6200 lumens (model 500 at 49w), 8200 lumens (model 700 at 72w), and 10,500 lumens (model 1000 at 91w). 

The RETRO-HPL series has a positive customer impact through ease of installation, 0-100% flicker-free dimming, the variety of different lumen packages, variety of color temperatures and CRIs. With maintaining the aesthetics of the existing PAR fixtures in their current applications, the RETRO-HPL is specifically designed to replace existing HPL lamps without any modifications to the existing fixture. By removing the lamp and lens, which are no longer needed, all that is necessary is to insert the RETRO-HPL engine into the fixture. For a video on how simple the installation of the RETRO-HPL engine is, please see our demonstration video below from LDI 2019.

“We’re very excited to release this product which came about due to client demand. We saw the feasibility of developing this product to fill another gap in the market with our RETRO line. We feel confident that this product will be received by the market with the same enthusiasm that we have for it.” Shawn Harmon, Eastern Sales Manager, said of the new product line.

The RETRO-Classic our original 0-100% phase dimmable (forward and reverse) variable wattage LED 2700K-6500K 80-97 CRI engine retrofit house light and most customizable RETRO in the entire RETRO family. They are heavier than the Fusion, yet lighter than Passive.

RETRO-Passive® – Absolute Silence

Being fanless, the RETRO-Passive is perfect for sound-sensitive spaces like museums and concert halls. They also have heavier heat sinks to compensate for not having active cooling.

RETRO-Fusion™ – Lighter & Smaller

With the RETRO-Fusion being lighter and lower profile, along with a beveled top edge, it is able to squeeze into more shallow fixtures without having the lens protrude from the front of the trim ring. That reduces any type of glare. This new design opens up more opportunities and applications.

RETRO-PAR – PAR Lamp Replacement

The Retro Par Series 1

The RETRO-PAR is easy to replace/install, modular, and customizable. Customizable features include active or passive cooling, different wattage outputs, and different optical beam spreads. It comes in PAR 38, 46, 56, and 64 styles, as well as custom.
