Claypaky Xtylos won “The AVard”, the ProAV Awards in Germany ( www.the-avard.de ) as “Best Entertainment & Infotainment Product”. The award ceremony, hosted by Professional System magazine and supported by many other leading industry publications, took place as part of the gala evening held on 4 November at the CCD Congress Center in Düsseldorf.
This prestigious award follows those already won by the Claypaky Xtylos in 2019: LDI Best Debuting Product in Lighting and PLSN Best Advancement in Lamp Technology.
Claypaky CEO Marcus Graser said: “The Xtylos is an innovative, energy-efficient and yet powerful unit! We are very pleased with this additional award, after those it won when it debuted on the market. The Xtylos incorporates unique technology that benefits our entire industry.”
The Xtylos was launched on the market in late 2019. However, as a result of the pandemic, almost all the events where the Xtylos could have been used successfully were cancelled. This year we were finally able to see all the innovative potential of this fixture at the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC). Almost 500 Xtylos units played the main role at what is one of the most celebrated and highly watched shows in the world.
In the meantime, Claypaky R&D has been developing this unique line of laser-light-source fixtures. The company has recently started marketing the XTYLOS AQUA (a weatherproof version, featuring IP66 protection rate) and the MINI XTYLOS HPE, a very small, compact but extremely high-performance version of the Xtylos.
Massimo Bolandrina, Claypaky Area Manager for Germany, said: “We are glad to win such a prestigious Award and seeing the Xtylos being selected by such a wide number of professionals, ahead of many other major Entertainment & Infotainment technologies. The Xtylos is a unique product, which stands out for a whole range of creative solutions to LDs, and at same time being a safe investment for customers. I would like to deeply thank all the team in Germany at VisionTwo, our partner, which supports our brand perfectly on both technical and promotional side and congratulate them for this mutual important success”.
