MYTHOS is a highly advanced form of hybrid light: first of all, it is an excellent 470 watt-lamp spotlight, which produces an outstanding large light beam, featuring a zoom that ranges from 4° to 50° (1:12 ratio).
Light beam is sharp, with perfectly defined edges, from the first millimeters after the front lens right along its entire length. The zoom is optimized for focusing, which is separate from that of the fixed and rotating gobos. Its movements are smooth, fast and very quiet. Mythos also features a completely redesigned indexed visual effect disc, which may be superimposed on all the gobos (6 rotating and 18 fixed gobos), both in and out of focus.
But Mythos is also an extraordinary beam light, allowing you to switch to a minimum fixed beam angle of just 0.5°. A large, very dense, 170 mm-diameter light beam leaves the Mythos’s front lens and remains parallel for its entire length even at great distances. Featuring a CMY mixing system based on three gradually fading color wheels, two rotating prisms, CTO, CTB, a frost unit Mythos is a very versatile tool, which is useful in any situation and therefore an excellent investment.

After the Sharpy’s extraordinary worldwide success, Clay Paky is now launching the SUPERSHARPY , an ACL beam type moving head featuring a 470 watt, 7,800 K lamp. If you have been amazed at how bright the Sharpy is, the SuperSharpy will leave you literally stunned. Its light beam is nothing short of three times brighter, with a far bigger difference than you would expect by simply comparing the rated wattage of the two lamps (470 vs 190). Thanks to this incredible output, the SuperSharpy’s light reaches never-seen-before mid-air distances, making the SuperSharpy the first low-wattage beam light that can really challenge a searchlight.
However Clay Paky has not settled for merely producing a “more powerful beam light”. The SuperSharpy also provides the utmost in terms of light quality and number of effects, including 7 rotating gobos, 18 fixed gobos, rotating prism, CMY, color wheels, CTO, CTB and much more.

STORMY
innovates tradition since it uses the latest LED technology, but retains all the charm of a classic strobe. The light source is a strip of powerful white LEDs, which perfectly emulate a bright Xenon linear lamp. The flash effect is actually enhanced since the Stormy is equipped with a parabolic reflector, like a classic strobe, and does not project the light directly forwards like other LED strobes do. The frequency, duration and intensity of the pulse are fully digitally controlled, and these parameters are even independently adjustable, which is impossible with a xenon lamp strobe. Thanks to its highly sophisticated electronics, the light turns on and off instantly, creating the jerky movement illusion. The time the light is on (the pulse duration) may be extended as required. The Stormy also comes with RGBW LEDs (STORMY CC), which are able to flash in any color: there is no more need for gels, which dramatically reduce the amount of light, or slow noisy unreliable scrollers.
