Ayrton shines brighter with laser

Published:

The switch towards laser light production has jumped to lighting fixtures with the introduction of Ayrton’s DreamSpot-18K. Fitted with an Osram Laser Phaser P6000 phosphor conversion module that claims to provide an 18,000 lumen output with both beam and spot projection, the fixture claims to be the world’s first automated profile with a laser source.

Zoom functionality is achieved via a 13-element optical system offering a range of 2- to 34-degrees in beam mode and 6- to 54-degrees in spot mode. The monochrome laser emitter is colour calibrated at 5,600K but the fixture offers a CMY subtractive colour mixing system and a wheel of 13 standard colours that include four levels of CTO correction. It is reportedly capable of producing an ‘almost infinite’ palette of pastel and saturated colours. Effects include fixed and rotating gobos, an iris, a dynamic effects wheel, rotating prisms, diffusion filters and a strobe, while flicker-free operation permits its operation in TV applications.

With its newly announced AlienPix-RS, Ayrton aims to modernise some of its past designs. The product delivers six beams of light and a continuous rotational axis, reportedly allowing for a range of effects within a single luminaire. The manufacturer states that the new model also uses optics and LED sources to create 3D effects.

The AlienPix-RS is formed of five spot heads surrounding a central disk, each containing a 3.5-degree RGBW LED emitter. These can be controlled individually with tri-phase stepper motors, allowing the ability to deliver a total light output up to 6,000 lumens.

AlienPix-RS also includes series connectivity and can be driven by DMX-RDM, Art-Net or a wireless DMX-RDM from LumenRadio, according to Ayrton.

In a further new release, the French manufacturer has added a version of its MagicDot-R fixture to its newest SW Series. The MagicDot-SX is described as a compact, hybrid version of MagicDot-R, which combines the qualities of its cousin with the added features of zoom capability and Lumen Radio wireless connectivity. It occupies the same physical dimensions as its sibling, and the same infinite rotation on the pan and tilt axes.

With no moving parts, its newly-developed 8:1 optical zoom has a fixed transmitting lens and delivers a zoom range of 5- to 40-degrees. It also has a 94mm-diameter collimator positioned close to the transmitting lens that the manufacturer states results in a tight beam with up to 75 per cent optical efficiency, while the short stroke of the zoom system reportedly allows the fixture to switch from beam mode to wash mode ‘virtually instantaneously’.
