Fixtures in this class are in high demand because they meet many needs, from the smallest venue to the largest show. With so many choices available, this category of fixture lends to highly competitive prices but also lowest common-denominator performance. This makes it difficult for customers to decide which fixture to choose without sacrificing performance.Claypaky’s MIDI-B clearly addresses these needs thanks to its amazing cost/performance ratio.The MIDI-B is a new LED-based moving head luminaire with 19 Osram 40-Watt RGBW LEDs, the same ones used in the popular HY B-EYE and MINI-B fixtures. Its zoom range of 4° to 50° allows for a wide variety of applications. At the narrowest angle, the beam produced is ultra-dense and concentrated, ideal for aerial effects. At its widest zoom, the MIDI-B turns into an exceptional, uniform wash light and can replace much heavier and bulkier fixtures.The 19 LEDs are arranged in three independently controllable rings, which can be used for bright back lighting effects. Colour macros, 2500K to 8000K colour temperature control range, 16-bit dimmer with four curves, 25 flashes per second electronic strobe, Ethernet access complete the MIDI-B’s features.


Following the success of the Mini-B Series, Claypaky has added lights equipped with Warm White RGB LEDs to its range. The power is the same as the original models but they have a natural colour temperature of 3200K. MIDI-B WWs are bright, lightweight and compact, and are just right when warm colour tones and the possibility of enhancing the complexion of the artists on stage are crucial factors in the lighting designer's choice of units.
