    The Midi-B FX stems from the innovative idea of adding some fancy lighting effects to a moving head washlight to get a fixture that can do both RGBW wash lighting and be used as part of the set design.

    To do this, Claypaky has placed a long top hat on the body of a Claypaky Midi-B, and fit five parallel rings of LEDs around it, each of which can be controlled separately for a wide range of colours. This patent-pending technology allows dynamic, attractive plays on colour, perfect for TV studio set designs and very useful for corporate and tour lighting.

    The LED rings are not meant to illuminate surfaces but are pure lighting effects enhancing the fixture and adding dynamism to the set, giving rise to a new visual effects tool for the lighting designer.

    As a washlight, the Midi-B FX has the same features as the Midi-B – with which it is fully compatible – including the optimized HD optical system, which provides highly efficient, bright

    Its body movements are precise and quiet. The 4° to 50° zoom allows it to be used in many situations, and the 24-bit electronic dimmer provides five dimmer curves, which keep the colours balanced throughout the dimming range.

    It also features 2500K to 8000K colour temperature correction and crossfade channels between colour and CTO and between macros. This means you can make linear transitions from the pre-set whites to any RGBW value or smooth transitions between the various colour macros.

    The Midi-B FX may be converted into a Midi-B simply by replacing the Midi-B’s top hat, which is available as an optional accessory.
