‘Kyalami is inspired by the multiple award-winning MagicDot’

Europe - Ayrton has announced the official launch of Kyalami, its first IP65-rated laser source luminaire in its Creative Solution series.

Kyalami is inspired by the multiple award-winning MagicDot. First released in 2015, MagicDot sold by the thousands within months, and still inspires creativity. Nine years later it has given birth to Kyalami.

Devised for architectural graphic effects, Kyalami is an ultra-compact luminaire with great creative potential. Its essential performance capability is based on its design, extreme miniaturisation, and a minimalist cylindrical footprint that allows multiple luminaires to be installed only a few centimetres apart.

A sphere of just 265mm incorporates Kyalami’s 100W laser module, cooling system and optics, while its 126mm front lens positioned in the continuity of the sphere provides Kyalami with a unique visual signature.

Kyalami pushes all the limits when it comes to beam definition, with native contrast never before achieved by a digital light source. Its proprietary three-lens optical system produces an incredible, intensive 1° beam and an extreme range of focus that permits the beam shape to be adjusted according to the operating distance.

Kyalami delivers a luminous flux of 400,000 lux at 10m from its next generation speckle-free laser source, which is designed for rendering a D65 white point that allows perfect colour reproduction.  A highly innovative colour section includes a high-definition progressive CMY colour mixing system and a multi-position instant access colour wheel equipped with five corrective filters, and 17 complementary colour filters.

Kyalami offers a wide choice of 29 fixed metal gobos designed to sculpt light in ‘beam’ mode. These gobos can be blended with two individually combinable rotating prisms allowing the production of a multitude of volumetric lighting effects. A light and heavy frost filter complete the graphic tool palette.

Kyalami adopts a minimalist style due to simplified waterproofing and the continuous rotation of the pan and tilt movement, increasing the possibilities for generating complex effects and making this luminaire a universal tool capable of meeting any challenge in all conditions.

Its dimensions measure just 265 x 430 x 265 mm (l x h x d) and weighs in at 14.5kg.
