Malaysia - Acoustic & Lighting System (A&L) successfully held an open-house event on 17 November 2015 to introduce Clay Paky's The Projectors series: the Scenius, Mythos, Supersharpy and Stormy. A&L held a similar show in Singapore earlier this year, and chose to repeat their success in Kuala Lumpur to welcome the Scenius, the latest member of the series. The open-house event was held in conjunction with Clay Paky at Bentley's Auditorium, located in the heart of Mutiara Damansara.

A&L put special effort into carefully selecting the venue. "It took us quite a while to find the right place. We had to consider some special factors when choosing the venue," explained Eric Loo, who was in charge of finding the site for this event. "We knew the capabilities of these lights. In order to show off their full potential, the height and length of the venue were crucial. Access to a power supply and the convenience of the site for our invited guests were other important factors."

"We did not want there to be other light, since we only wanted to see the light from the Clay Paky fixtures. After checking out the venue, we decided to go with Bentley's auditorium in Mutiara Damansara. It had the right height and length for the powerful Scenius, Mythos and Supersharpy units to launch their beams. Moreover the venue was situated in a strategic location, which was easy for our invited guests to reach. As for light, Bentley's auditorium is not highly exposed to natural light. It is very easy to black out the venue with very little equipment."

The event lasted from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM and saw over 50 attendees, including rental firms, broadcasters, system integrators and consultants. There were a total of 27 Clay Paky lighting fixtures, 19 of which were from The Projectors series. The demo was accompanied by an official promotional video by Clay Paky, projected by two Panasonic PT-DZ21K projectors onto a 10x30 ft screen.

Alfonso Zarate Takano, Clay Paky Asia-Pacific area sales manager, and Giulia Sabeva, a Clay Paky sales support engineer, were also present. Giulia Sabeva, who has been involved in various lighting events, brought the lights to life.
