PLASA 2013: Clay Paky award-winning luminaires and events

posted: October 11, 2013

Clay Paky stand located within the “Ambersphere village”

Clay Paky's stand S80, enhanced by the "bee-eye" graphic design concept, was part of the “Ambersphere village” at Plasa 2013." Ambersphere Solutions, the Clay Paky and MA Lighting exclusive distributor for United Kingdom and Ireland, has supervised the arrangements of the stands in coordination with Clay Paky, featuring the joint exhibition areas with a strong and impressive corporate image.
This year Clay Paky marked its presence at Plasa with some highly innovative products:

A.leda B-EYE
Perfect Wash, Amazing Beam, Spectacular Graphic Effects

ALEDA B-EYE
is truly innovative for its unique lighting effects; its unmatched versatility makes it a fantastic creative tool.  Firstly it an excellent wash-light, with beautiful colours and an impressive 6° to 70° zoom. The beam however can be closed further down to as little as 4°, switching the light from wash diffusion into a parallel beam. B-EYE thus becomes a beam-light for amazing aerial effects. It generates a pulsating bundle of individually controllable micro-beams, each with its own colours and shades. ALEDA B-EYE finally introduces a totally unseen feature,: the front lens can be rotated and many little beams are created, that can be unfolded or closed like petals. Adding colours and dynamic patterns, B-EYE turns into a unique effect light, generating countless kaleidoscopic projections, as no other LED fixture has ever done.

Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE K20 wins the PLASA AWARDS FOR INNOVATION

The PLASA Awards for Innovation recognise products that advance the industry by demonstrating a new style of thinking, improving technical practice or taking a key step forward in terms of safety. During the show's opening two days, 45 new products were judged 'live' by an independent panel of expert judges who toured the show floor to view each product presentation.

Clay Paky A.leda B-Eye has been awarded with the 2013 Plasa Award for innovation. Pio Nahum, Clay Paky Chief Commercial Officer, took the stage first in order of appearance to receive the award. He thanked all the professionals working in the lighting industry, who continue to recognize the quality of Clay Paky products and the company’s efforts to offer innovation without compromise.

The judges said, "The B-EYE had a "wow" factor. It's an innovative look and a modern retake on a classic effect. It's also a fully-functional and versatile luminaire."

A.leda CC, TW, W
New additions to the A.LEDA LED-washlight family

For those applications where a simpler, yet powerful washlight is required, Clay Paky developed a new fix-ture named A.LEDA CC (Colour Changer), featuring R-G-B-White colour mixing.When colour changing is not required, the new Clay Paky A.LEDA TW (Tuneable White) can be used, providing tuneable colour temperature through additive mixing, ranging from 2600 to 7500 K. Finally, for the simplest applications, Clay Paky has created A.LEDA W (White), a moving head LED flood-light generating a fixed 7500 K white light.

Sharpy Wash 330
The little wash-light that makes a big difference

Sharpy Wash 330 is an extraordinarily compact, lightweight  330 W washlight, with the luminous efficiency and optical performance of a 1000W fixture; but it requires half the power, it features one third of  the weight,  it is much smaller, it is as fast as the world-famous Sharpy.  Despite its small size Sharpy Wash includes all functions needed by a top category washlight: CMY, colour wheel, CTO, 6°-48° zoom, frost, beam shaper. It fulfills the dream of any LD: more lighting points on the rig without increasing power consumption, equipment weight and costs.  Five adjectives: small, powerful, versatile, cost-effective and cutting-edge.

Clay Paky Sharpy Wash 330 received a
Honourable mention by the judges of the Plasa Awards for Innovation “to represent impressive advancements in the state-of-the-art of entertainment lighting”:
