Claypaky will be showing a number of new additions to its catalogue
UK - PLASA Show 2023 will see the world premiere of Claypaky’s Midi-B FX which stems from the innovative idea of adding some fancy lighting effects to a moving head washlight to get a fixture that can do both RGBW wash lighting and be used as part of the set design.
To do this, Claypaky has placed a long top hat on the body of a Claypaky Midi-B, and fit five parallel rings of LEDs around it, each of which can be controlled separately for a wide range of colours. This patent-pending technology allows dynamic, attractive plays on colour, which are perfect for TV studio set designs and very useful for corporate and tour lighting.
As a washlight, the Midi-B FX has the same features as the Midi-B - with which it is fully compatible - including the optimised HD optical system, which provides a highly efficient, bright output. Its 4° to 50° zoom means it can be used in a wide variety of situations, and its 24-bit electronic dimmer provides five dimmer curves, which keep the colours balanced throughout the whole dimming range.
Also making its world premiere is ADB's Actoris Profile FC, a six-colour ellipsoidal with advanced features, incorporating state-of-the-art software which gives it top-notch performance, especially in terms of colour control. The light source is based on an RGBAL + royal blue system, which means any desired shade of colour can be produced, including an incredible array of pastel hues, with a CRI of up to 97. It has variable colour temperature correction from 2500 K to 8000 K, and perfect Planck-curve CCT.
Seen for the first time at PLASA will be the Skylos, an ultra-versatile and weather-resistant fixture. The Skylos will certainly also be appreciated in the touring sector, where LDs are constantly on the look-out for dense, solid beams of light and ever-greater light output. It fits a custom 300W white light laser source, which provides an extremely parallel, uniform beam.
The Arolla Aqua is Claypaky's top-of-the-range weather-resistant light. It is a true workhorse with IP66 rating and technical and construction features which were once unimaginable for this kind of light. The Arolla Aqua fits a white 900 W (7000 K) LED light source, capable of a 40,000-lumen output.
The Sharpy-X-Spot is a simplified Sharpy-X-Frame model, with all the same lighting, optical and construction features that have made this fixture so successful.
The Buddylight is Claypaky's new remote followspot system. It follows performers and speakers automatically, in a quick and easy way. The Buddylight can be used either in an Art-Net or DMX network - by setting up control priority management with the console - or in standalone mode, where it really comes into its element. The Buddylight marks a further step towards ever greater entertainment light automation. It is perfect for theatres, auditoriums and conference rooms.
The Tambora Linear 60 is a compact, 60mm static LED pixel bar designed for versatile lighting effects and artistic set decorations. It offers all the features of the Tambora Linear LED bar range and is particularly suitable for applications in narrow environments.
