Germany - Ayrton will celebrate its 20th anniversary at this year’s Prolight+Sound exhibition. Founded in 2001 by Yvan Péard, Ayrton has established itself as one of the leading LED lighting manufacturers in the industry.
The company will launch several new products in Frankfurt, including the first long throw IP65-rated fixture in its 9 Series, Domino LT. Domino LT is the first all-terrain LED luminaire in Ayrton’s long-throw range, and is designed for intensive outdoor use in long-distance applications that require high precision. It combines the minimalist design of Domino Profile with the colour mixing capabilities of Huracán Profile and the IP65 weather-proofing of Perseo.
Domino LT’s 225mm diameter frontal lens produces an ultra-intensive beam with a 15:1 zoom ratio and a zoom range of 3.5° to 53°.
Equipped with an all-new high-efficiency 1,000-watt LED module, Domino LT delivers a record luminous flux of 51,000 lumens at a colour temperature of 6700K. Domino LT’s complex colour mixing system offers a double level of CMY saturation that can obtain 281 trillion colours (patent pending) and a triple corrector for variable colour temperature that allows subtle adjustment from 2700K to 15000K and significant CRI improvement.
Fitted with multiple optical tools for shaping light, Domino LT is factory-equipped with a linear progressive frost system, a lightweight frost filter, and two image-multiplying rotating prisms: one is linear with four facets and the other is circular with five facets. The framing section enables precise positioning of each shutter blade on a 100% surface area. The effects section includes two superimposed rotating gobo wheels each with seven gobos, a 15-blade iris diaphragm, a monochromatic multi-position effects wheel, and an RGB and CMY effects wheel for unique multicolour effects.
Its full weather-proofing features are no barrier to maintenance as Domino LT’s design still ensures total accessibility to the luminaire's internal functions. Domino LT is a unique luminaire designed to face the most extreme conditions. It is the ultimate tool for stadiums and large arenas. See it for the first time on Ayrton’s stand in Hall 12 Stand D74-D75.
Alongside Domino LT, Ayrton will also be revealing two products at this year’s PL+S. Cobra and Zonda will make their debuts in Frankfurt as part of the now famous Ayrton lightshow.
Cobra delivers ‘astonishing beams of light with unprecedented power and contrast ratio in a compact, stylish and IP65 enclosure’. Forty-two times zoom, continuous pan and tilt rotation and a comprehensive effects package complete Cobra.
Zonda allows designers a whole new dimension of creativity, backed by unique optics resulting in performance not possible until now. The first in a family of sleek, powerful and uncompromising wash fixtures.
Ayrton is proud and excited to support Women in Lighting for the second year and will have a dedicated area in its VIP lounge where visitors can come to relax, find out more about WIL’s work and how to get involved, and watch a selection of WIL’s online interviews.
WIL is an international project which provides an inspirational digital platform that profiles women working in lighting and lighting design and celebrates and promotes their work and career paths. WIL challenges the underrepresentation of women within the industry and aims to support and encourage the next generation.
Ayrton’s primary aim is to spread awareness and broaden the reach of WIL across the entertainment lighting industry to match the well-established status it enjoys in the architectural lighting industry.
