Claypaky’s Axcor Profile 900 claims to be the world’s first spotlight to use an LED light source instead of a traditional discharge lamp. Powered by a white LED engine, the spotlight produces a 900W output and 24,000 lumens brightness, together with dichroic filters for colour reproduction. Alongside its high-brightness attributes, the spotlight also boasts a ‘precision’ beam shaping system capable of producing sharp projections.
In a further release from the Italian manufacturer, Claypaky’s latest LED wash light, K-Eye HCR, claims to provide complete control over the quality of all forms of white or coloured light with the inclusion of new HCR technology. According to the manufacturer, the new HCR technology, which is an exclusive electronic platform developed by Claypaky and its parent company Osram, is intended to remove the performance difference between LED devices and traditional lamps in terms of their incomplete colour range, poor colour rendering index and lack of consistency.
At the heart of the K-Eye HCR is an LED light source consisting of a module with six chips, each for a different colour: classic red, green and blue colours, as well as amber, cyan and lime.
In other news, the latest addition to the Scenius family is the Scenius Unico, a spotlight for projecting effects, with six rotating gobos, a rotating prism, an animation wheel, and reportedly the ‘most sophisticated and most precise framing system on the market today’. It boasts an ouput of 1,400W, a 6,500K colour temperature and a high CRI. The fixture can also be deployed as a wash light as it includes different diffusion filters which can be inserted gradually as required. Finally, the fixture is capable of generating a narrow beam of highly-concentrated light, with a minimum beam angle of 5°.
Finally, Claypaky’s Mythos fixture has been treated to two new features. Now named Mythos 2, the updated hybrid fixture adds ‘super-smooth dimming and makes use of Osram Sirius HRI 440W lamp technology.
