PLASA 2012: Clay Paky at the heart of the showThe Alpha Profile 800 ST
UK - Clay Paky is one of the main sponsors of PLASA 2012. The Clay Paky stand (1-E36 as usual), is facing the 'main square' in the very heart of the exhibition floor, where the Innovation Gallery is placed. This year the stand will be managed by Ambersphere Solutions, the exclusive distributor in the UK for the Clay Paky and MA Lighting ranges of products.

Located on the back of the main stand, the demo-area provides a suitable environment for an effective presentation of Clay Paky products. Access to this area is open to all visitors that, every hour, will be able to attend a 20 minutes product presentation. In the time between the scheduled demos our staff will be available for questions & answers and for in depth individual presentations. Please contact our counter for appointments.

Clay Paky has donated to PLASA one of the six 'Union Jack' Sharpy fixtures that have been used for the Jubilee Concert of Queen Elisabeth II. All pre-registered PLASA visitors will enter a free prize draw to win this unique fixture, that carries the original signature of LD Durham Marenghi The unit will be on display at the main entrance of the exhibition.

On Sunday 9 September the KOI event will be celebrated at the Battersea Evolution venue, with 400 and more industry guests. Organised by the ALD, STLD and Clay Paky and now in its fifth year, the Knight of Illumination Awards provides public recognition for outstanding achievements in Lighting Design by lighting designers working on productions in the UK.

Following its successful debut in Frankfurt, the Clay Paky TV will provide daily updates and interviews with key market players with their impressions on the exhibition, comments about the market situation and new trends, their experiences with Clay Paky products. Feel free to come to CP TV Studio, located in the demo-room; bring your key customers with you and become a protagonist with this innovative communication tool, says the company.

The A.LEDA range of LED-based fixtures will be on display at PLASA for the first time in the UK, after the design fine-tuning based on the customers feed-back received at and after the ProLight & Sound exhibition. The range consists of A.Leda Wash K5 (150W, 3,500 lm, 12° beam angle), A.Leda Wash K10 (350W, 9,000 lm, 14°-70° linear zoom) and A.Leda Wash K20 (600W, 18,000 lm, 14°-70° linear zoom). All models feature a library of pre-set graphic effects customizable by the operator, electronic linear dimmer, stop/strobe effect and a dedicated channel for colour temperature setting. Each LED colour can be dynamically and individually controlled.

The Alpha Profile 800 ST is the most modern moving beam shaper in existence today for use in theatres and studios. Clay Paky used highly sophisticated micromechanics to obtain a compact, light, silent unit with an extremely bright light and a zoom capable of producing an extraordinarily sharp, perfectly uniform beam.

GlowUp Strip 100 is a LED bar (batten) for professional stage lighting, with combined battery/mains power supply and combined cable/wireless control. 10 powerful RGB-W multi-chip LEDs are arranged in a line inside a 100 cm linear aluminium housing suitable for outdoors use (IP65). The fixture creates a curtain of brightly colored light, with a beam angle adjustable from 14° to 70°. The original "white power saving" function helps optimize power consumption.
