The Skylos offers dense, solid beams of light
Germany - Claypaky will feature a number of newly-released products at this year’s Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt this week, including first showings of Skylos and Sharpy-X-Spot.
The Skylos is a-versatile and weather-resistant fixture, billed as ‘much more than just a classic searchlight’. The Skylos offers dense, solid beams of light and ever-greater light output. It fits a custom 300W white light laser source, which provides a parallel, uniform beam. The beam pours out from a large 300mm front lens, specifically designed in Claypaky’s R&D department and it is uniform and parallel, with no visible hotspots. The beam angle can be adjusted from 0.5° to 5°.
Also making its world debut is Arolla Aqua, Claypaky's top-of-the-range weather-resistant light. It is a 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. This means it can compete with both high-power-range lights (given its output) and medium-power-range lights (given its small size and weight). Its uniform light beam is another key feature.
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. First of all, it fits a powerful 550-Watt arc lamp, which makes this fixture bright and produces deep, vivid, uniform colours, including an unparalleled deep red. If needed, the beam shaper module - provided as an accessory - can be added, thus turning the Sharpy-X-Spot into a fully-fledged Sharpy-X-Frame.
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.
The Mini-B Aqua was created to meet the demand from lighting professionals for a weather resistant, lightweight, compact, agile mini-washlight. It is IP66 protection rated, making it suitable for all kinds of outdoor use. However, it is also ideal for indoor installation since it does not require the same levels of maintenance as ordinary IP20 fixtures thanks to the total protection of its internal components against dust.
The Mini-B-Spot is a complement to the Claypaky Mini-B and Mini-B Aqua, but it also has innovative, exclusive features. The light source is based on a 70W white LED engine, capable of delivering 3500 Lumen, but with a power consumption of only 150W. Claypaky has also developed a proprietary optical unit that optimizes light intensity and light output.
The Volero Wave is a LED bar with original and innovative features. It is made up of a system of eight moving heads, each one independently capable of a 220° tilt.
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.
