Cobra, Ayrton’s first laser sourced fixture, has made a striking impact on the market since its release in May
Spain - Ayrton will present a selection of its product range on its integration-themed booth (7B550) at ISE in Barcelona from 31 January – 3 February 2023.
New products include the newly released Zonda 3, alongside its larger sibling, Zonda 9, and Ayrton’s first laser-sourced fixture, Cobra.
Part of Ayrton’s multi-sources 3 Series and smaller sibling to Zonda 9, Zonda 3 is a compact, versatile luminaire with unlimited potential designed specifically for stage lighting. Available as Zonda 3 Wash or Zonda 3 FX, this little powerhouse is packed with effects and can switch from beam to wash with great ease. Its speed of movement and reduced dimensions increase its dynamic potential.
Seven high-performance 40W LED sources (RGB+W) and a proprietary optical system enhance beam coherence, while its 50mm truncated transmitting lens delivers a high intensity beam with a zoom ratio of 14:1 and a wide zoom range of 4° to 56°. A light output of 5,200 lumens and a perfectly homogeneous mixture of pastel and saturated colours, regardless of the colour combination chosen, complete the package.
Designed to cover an entire live entertainment stage, Zonda 3 Wash’s additive colour synthesis can reproduce precise, intense and deep colours, while the careful colour mixing of the sources allows for perfect colour reproduction. A special black honeycomb and perfect separation of the light sources helps to significantly boost the level of contrast. A complete library of pre-programmed colours, created in collaboration with lighting designers, is instantly accessible.
Zonda 3 FX is a creative, versatile and feature-rich luminaire that borrows from the main attributes of the Wash version. It offers continuous rotation of the pan and tilt movement I.R.S.TM. while individual control of each LED allows the creation of 3D volumetric effects.
A high-definition liquid effect (LiquidEffects) between its main lenses can create complex and stunningly beautiful graphic effects. Zonda 3 FX can be used alone or in combination with the main LED matrix and its library of effects provides a limitless source of inspiration.
Both Zonda 3 Wash and Zonda 3 FX have a new optimised cooling system, simplified lens guidance systems, and an ever-smarter design of the internal structure which have made it possible to reduce the size and weight of the luminaires considerably in keeping with Ayrton’s Slim-21™ system.
Cobra, Ayrton’s first laser sourced fixture, has made a striking impact on the market since its release in May. Capable of illuminating objects several kilometres away, Cobra pushes the limits when it comes to beam definition, with a native contrast never before achieved by a digital light source, an incredible 0.6° beam angle and a zoom range of 0.6° to 23° and a choice of 92 fixed and rotating metal gobos, four prisms and 21 complementary colour filters, plus six corrective colour filters.
This versatile and exciting IP65-rated fixture has been a key part of many outdoor celebrations, events and concerts, from the Hong Kong Harbour Lights show to Finnish theme park, Linnanmaki, and from Christopher Bauder’s light installation, Axion, at the NOOR Riyadh Festival 2022, to New Year celebrations across the world.
Ayrton is a supporter of Women in Lighting and will be hosting a Women in Lighting Meetup on the Ayrton booth (7B550) on Thursday 2 February at 3pm. Come along for drinks, snacks and socialising and find out more about the project and how you can become involved.
