Alpha Beam 300 and Alpha Beam 1500, the new concept Beam Moving Lights by Clay Paky, have been both nominated for the Plasa Award for Innovation 2008.
Presented exclusively by Clay Paky, the ALPHA BEAM is not a spot or even a wash, some call it a “sposh”. It produce a super-concentrated parallel light beam for a very similar use to that of an Par64 ACL, always present at all the great Rock shows, but with decidedly superior and innovative characteristics.
ALPHA BEAM 1500 is ultra bright and “eco-friendly”: thanks to the new special Clay Paky optical group, it produces a much greater brightness than lights of the same power, achieving projection distances reached only by lights of thousands of watts, but with the energy consumption of a 1500W light bulb. This enables it to be used instead of considerably larger projectors, with enormous savings in energy. It is much more than a beam moving light, featuring an innovative focus system (patent pending) and a wide effect section, allowing to decide at will the opening and graphics of the beam: 14 gobos (6 rotating and 8 fixed), 2 rotating prisms, CMY + color wheel, rotating beam shaper, 0-100% dimmer + precision dimmer on separate channels, mechanical iris, stop-strobe. 3 combinable linear frosts, on dedicated channels, offering different projection modalities of color intensity.
ALPHA BEAM 300 is 3 times brighter than an ordinary 1200W wash projector, with the energy consumption of a 300W light bulb. This enables it to be used instead of considerably larger projectors, with enormous savings in energy. Alpha Beam 300 has a complete effect section, where the aperture and graphic of the “tunnel of light” can be decided by using the 8 fixed gobos available as standard. It also features a patented frost system, “soft mode” and “hard edge” mode, CMY + color wheel, 0-100% dimmer, stop-strobe, electronic ballast.
Alpha Beam references include: the musical “Mary of Nazareth”, that debuted in the Nervi Room (the huge auditorium in Vatican– Rome, specifically built for the audience with the Pope) and will soon begin its world tour. The Dancing on Ice Tour featuring the ITV1 show. The Disney’s High School Musical Tour in Spain. The Queen + Paul Rodgers Tour. The Carl Cox concert in Rome. The Vasco Rossi tour and the Elio e le storie tese tour in Italy. Cali tour in France. The Unilever event at Warsaw Torwar, Poland. Many industrial presentations like the lunch of the new Mercedes SLK model, the TIM and Vodafone convention, the Wella stand at Cosmoprof in Italy. The tours of Ken Hirai, Hiromi Go, V6 and the Heisei JUMP – Johnny’s Artist concert in Japan and many more.
