PL&S 2017 – Claypaky puts focus on new technology

With the Axcor Profile 900, Claypaky has launched a new course in its design research: it is the first Claypaky spotlight to use a LED light source, instead of a traditional discharge lamp. Claypaky has chosen to use a white LED engine with high luminous efficiency, total power of 900W and luminous flux of 24,000 lumen output, and couple it with a system of dichroic filters to create the colours.

Thanks to its considerable light output, the Claypaky Axcor Profile 900 goes straight in at the top of its category and features the best in modern technology in every parameter: the characteristics of the white and coloured light it produces, its ability to form perfectly sharp projections, and the precision micro-mechanics of its exclusive beam shaping system.

Following the B-EYE, Claypaky has now launched the K-EYE HCR, a LED wash light which “provides total control over the quality of all forms of white or coloured light. The new HCR technology used in the K-EYE is an exclusive electronic platform developed by Claypaky in conjunction with Osram to meet the needs of lighting designers all over the world who were not fully satisfied with the performance of LED devices in comparison with traditional lamps, in particular because of their incomplete colour range, poor colour rendering index and lack of consistency,” the company says.

“All these limitations have been overcome in the K-EYE HCR, and it is finally possible to produce every colour, every nuance and every shade with satisfactory quality. The heart of the K-EYE HCR wash light is a LED light source consisting of a module with six chips, each for a different colour: besides the three ‘classic’ basic red, green and blue colours, Claypaky has added amber, cyan and lime.”

The Scenius Unico is the latest addition to the Scenius family. It boasts high quality of light (1400W Osram lamp, 6500K, high CRI), six rotating gobos, a rotating prism an animation wheel, and is equipped with “the most sophisticated and most precise framing system on the market today” says the manufacturer. It can also serve as a wash light, since it features a system with different diffusion filters, which may be inserted gradually. Scenius Unico can also generate a powerful narrow beam of super concentrated light, with a minimum beam angle of only 5°, the company says.
