A.LEDA WASH K20 is the model at the top of the A.LEDA Series, the first professional Clay Paky fixtures to use LEDs as light sources. It offers a valid alternative to discharge lamp washlights, adding all the benefits of LED technology: low energy consumption, long light source life, small size, light weight and robustness.
A.Leda Wash K.20 is fitted with multicolor RGBW LEDs that produce a full range of vivid colors as well as excellent shades of white. It is also equipped with a motorised and fully controllable 14°-70°.
Each color of each LED may be controlled separately: this unique feature not only allows you to create an endless range of color variations, but also to use each LED of the array as a pixel in order to draw all kinds of graphic images that change dynamically both in shape and color.
To ease operation, the light has a library of pre-programmed graphic effects, which operators may customise by changing each parameter: intensity of each color, speed of change, etc.
