Los Angeles – Main Light Industries, Inc., the Wilmington, Delaware-based firm, which has become one of the largest rental houses in the country, has further expanded its inventory with Clay Paky Shotlight Wash fixtures. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky lighting in North America.
In the last two years Main Light, which serves all of the professional lighting industry, has acquired complements of Clay Paky Alpha Spot QWO 800s, Alpha Profile 800 STs, Sharpys, Alpha 700s and Alpha Spot HPE 1500 fixtures. Now, Main Light has continued to diversify its impressive Clay Paky offerings by investing in Shotlight Washes.
“A.C.T Lighting provides some of the best support within the industry. Our longstanding relationship with A.C.T, along with the superb products they distribute for Clay Paky, make our latest purchase a win-win situation for us,” says Main Light’s head of client relations, John DiEleuterio.
Shotlight Wash is a totally new kind of projector that combines an extraordinary 1500W discharge lamp washlight and a 3000W Xenon lamp strobe in one device. The two-wash/strobe functions are perfectly integrated and can be operator controlled with either simultaneous or separate operation and special effects. The “strobe” function is provided by two semicircular Xenon lamps working independently, so they can flash together or separately at different frequencies.
“The Shotlight is very unique combining the wash and strobe elements in one fixture,” DiEleuterio explains. “The dual use of a wash fixture plus two insanely bright strobes give the fixture twice the functionality – something you don’t see in any other fixture. And they’re Clay Paky, which means they’re high quality.”
He notes that Main Light also saw a market opportunity to get out in front of other rental houses with the desirable new fixture. “Our clients will use them as very specific design elements. They will be perfect for certain artists and electronic music.”
Over the years, Main Light customers, including the Red Hot Chile Peppers, the Ultra Music Festival and the Electric Daisy Carnival, have become fans of the company’s extensive Clay Paky inventory.
