Claypaky will be showcasing the breath-taking capabilities of their revolutionary new Xtylos at Mediatech Africa 2019, being held at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg from 17 to 19 July.

The Xtylos is the first moving-head light with a laser light source making it one of the most dynamic lights currently on the market. According to Claypaky, the inclusion of laser technology in a moving head light opens up new, surprising prospects for the development of the entire entertainment lighting world.

The Claypaky Xtylos is a laser-based compact beam moving light with unique optical and chromatic characteristics. The unit’s laser source lasts for 10,000 hours and is enclosed in a reliable, safe and fully sealed module.

The Xtylos uses laser technology with RGB additive colour mixing. In contrast to the subtractive mixing used with discharge lamps, coloured light beams are as bright as a white light beam. The range of effects features two gobo wheels – with seven rotating gobos and twelve fixed gobos (including seven beam diameter reducers) – a wheel with three prisms, and a sixteen facet prism on a dedicated channel which can be overlapped with the prism wheel.

Visitors to Mediatech Africa will have the opportunity to see the Xtylos in action, first hand. According to Kevin Stannett of DWR distribution, the Claypaky stand will feature a demonstration area, where visitors will be treated to a time-coded lightshow featuring four Xtylos units. “We will be able to accommodate 15 people at a time, with presentations every half an hour throughout the show,” says Stannett. In addition, visitors will be able to see the awe-inspiring power of the Xtylos in action, as the Xtylos lights up the night sky just outside the main entrance to the Ticketpro Dome between 17:00 and 19:00.

Visit Claypaky on stand B22 at Mediatech between 17 and 19 July for a chance to see this world-first technology in action.
