When the first Lighting Designers saw it in action, they immediately knew that this new projector would fill the significant application gap in live entertainment. And they fell head over heels in love with it. It’s not a spot or even a wash, some call it a "sposh", but for all, it's the incredible Clay Paky ALPHA BEAM 300.

Presented exclusively by Clay Paky, ALPHA BEAM 300 produces a superconcentrated 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.
Innovative and complete, compact (only 19 kg), service friendly and easy to install and use, ALPHA BEAM 300 is the ideal Moving Light Beam for “live” professional use especially “long throw” to cut through the brightness of stage washes or LED backgrounds, with Aircraft Landing light effects never seen before.

Ultra bright and “eco-friendly”
Thanks to the new Clay Paky special optical group, it produces brightness equal to three times that of an ordinary 1200W wash projector, generating an extraordinary “tunnel of light” with a natural beam of 8°. Energy consumption is that of a 300 W light bulb.

Unbeatable Performance/Price
Complete graphics where the aperture and graphics of the “tunnel of light” can be decided at will by using the 8 fixed gobos available as standard (4 image gobos + 4 beam angle reduction gobos), patented frost, “soft mode” and “hard edge” mode, CMY and color wheel, electronic ballast, broad soft and fast movement to easily move onto the stage, the public, the ceiling or towards the sky for open-air events.

Just months after its debut on the international market, the ALPHA BEAM 300 was selected by many LDs and adopted by rental companies such as PRG USA, PRG Europe, PRG Asia, Atlanta Sound & Light (USA), Flashlight Rental (NL), Aukes Theatretechniek (NL) Stage Electrics (UK), Bandit Lites (UK), Arpège (FRA), Régie Lumière (FRA), Blue Squares (BE), Limelite (ITA), Giochi di Luce (ITA), Giemme Allestimenti (ITA), Mixer Sound & Lite (ITA), Siempre Creativos (ESP), TSE (Poland), Transcolor (Poland), SLS (UAE), Showtech (UAE), Protec (Dubai), Creative (Qatar), Lumen Art (Lebanon).

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 Elio e le storie tese tour in Italy • 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.

A preview of the ALPHA BEAM 300 will be presented at Plasa 2008 with live demonstrations at Clay Paky’s stand, E47, along with the new and powerful ALPHA BEAM 1500W. Don’t miss it!
