"A Richard Belliveau Concept"

Offering awesome power, incredible speed and total flexibility, SHAPESHIFTER is the new and innovative range from High End Systems. Designed by Richard Belliveau, prepare to have your mind shifted!

7 independently controlled modules housed in one moving fixture create a multitude of highly defined beams coming together to form an amazing array of effects from the incredibly bold to the ultra subtle. All elements of the fixture are lightning fast giving the designer the largest palette of creative options available, all from one fixture.

Featuring custom lensing and ultra bright LED’s SHAPESHIFTER is the brightest LED range available today!

Alongside total control High End Systems has provided Module Macros with almost 150 available to the user. These have been custom written to provide the user with a fast and intuitive way to create powerful effects in a very short space of time. These Macros are further enhanced by speed and cross fade controls.

High End Systems are true innovators and SHAPESHIFTER is the fulcrum of the new generation of LED products being released. RESHAPE THE GAME!

    "Durability, reliability, and functionality are key elements I look for when spec'ing out new fixtures. High End Systems Shapeshifters fill all three of these requirements and then some. A stand out fixture in any rig, the Shapeshifter is a signature luminary that creates unique movement, texture, and effects that are unmatched by any other fixture."

    "I was helping debut the fixture for HES on the 60 shows and we had one issue. I immediately contacted High End Systems, they promptly addressed it. I was never concerned about the reliability of the fixture. I found that the fixture stood up to the most tried and true fixtures on the market. They held up to all the wear that comes with touring."

    "Video Directors all the way down to Stagehands comment on the look of the physical fixture and how unique it is. Once I fire the fixture up and show them what it can do their minds immediately get 'Shifted'."
