Xtylos has two gobo wheels, a wheel with three prisms and a 16-facet prism
Claypaky has unveiled its first beam effect powered by laser. The Xtylos is a compact beam moving light that makes use of a patent-pending, tailor-made laser source. It features an RGB additive colour mixing, where coloured light beams are said to be as bright as a white light beam. The beam aperture is less than 2° and can be decreased further to 0.5°. Features include two gobo wheels – with seven rotating gobos and 12 fixed gobos (including seven beam diameter reducers) – a wheel with three prisms and a 16-facet prism on a dedicated channel that can be overlapped with the prism wheel.
The Italian manufacturer has also introduced the Axcor Wash 600, described as a versatile light designed to enhance the Axcor LED moving head range and, specifically, the Axcor Profile 600. The Axcor Wash 600 fits a four-blade framing system and is available with PC (standard), Fresnel or clear lenses. The three types are interchangeable and can be purchased separately. With a CRI of at least 90, the Axcor Wash 600 has a 55° wide beam angle and comes with CMY colour mixing, a linear CTO and two overlapping colour wheels with five colours each.
Also new is the Mini-B, the smallest LED beam light ever made by Claypaky. Weighing 7kg and measuring 34cm, the Mini-B’s light source is based on 40W Osram RGBW LEDs and its central LED may be controlled separately from the external ring of LEDs. It features a wide zoom ranging from 4–55° and comes with more than 50 pre-installed effects/colour macros, 2,500–8,000K colour temperature control, a 16-bit dimmer with four curves, an electric strobe at 25fps and Ethernet access.
Finally, CloudIO is a patent-pending IoT device that provides technicians with complete diagnostics for Claypaky fixtures. When the lights run checks after use, the unit collects data on hours of lamp life of each fixture, the conditions of various components in the units and update firmware by connecting to the cloud. The CloudIO is equipped with a retrofit system, which allows it to be fitted to most of Claypaky’s lights. It has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen and two in/out pass-through DMX connections so users can interface and communicate with up to 31 lights in series.
