The Xtylos is a compact beam moving light with unique optical and chromatic characteristics, making use of a tailor-made RGB laser source (Patent Application filed). This laser source, lasting for 20,000 hours, is enclosed in a reliable, safe and fully sealed module and it is the powerful engine of an incredible array of colours: in contrast to the subtractive mixing used with discharge lamps, coloured light beams are as bright as a white light beam! A special patended design optical system turns the laseremitted light into a solid, dense, saturated light beam without any visible hotspots. The beam aperture ranges from 1° to 7° and it can be decreased further to 0.5° using the beam diameter reducers provided on the gobo wheel. The resulting pencil beams are of exceptional intensity, and cannot be reproduced by any other light sources, either LED or traditional.
The entertainment industry is constantly looking for new technology to impress audiences with new surprising effects. Nowadays, rapid technological development means that new fixtures, which perform better in terms of power, light output and lifespan, while reducing weight and overall dimensions, are continually introduced onto the market. However, they are usually an evolution of previous models rather than being revolutionary. The new Claypaky XTYLOS, on the contrary, is a real revolution.
The XTYLOS stems from the joint experience of two great companies: Osram, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of light sources, and Claypaky, which has constantly innovated the world of show lighting by inventing luminaires that have become industry standards.
The XTYLOS uses a totally innovative technology. It is a compact beam moving light with unique optical and chromatic characteristics, making use of a tailor-made laser source. This laser source is enclosed in a reliable, safe and fully sealed module and it is the powerful engine of an incredible array of colors.
This mode of using a laser source is very innovative. Lasers are renowned for being rather complicated and expensive devices; so far their most frequent application as a light source has been in the field of video projection. To use laser light in the new XTYLOS, Claypaky and Osram’s R&D departments have created a totally new, patent-pending optical group and carried out countless tests on performance and safety aspects. The result is a luminaire with no equal on the market.
