The innovations from Ayrton keep on coming, and this week they present Ayrton’s
MagicBurst™ – the industry’s first high-power graphic LED strobe to offer
continuous, unlimited rotation on its pan and tilt axes, which first burst onto the
stage at Prolight + Sound 2016.
As Ayrton continues its mission to present new technology, original ideas and
inspiration for lighting designers, MagicBurst™ proves a landmark as the company’s
first strobe unit, and the world’s only motorised strobe. The impact has been
immediate and immense!
MagicBurst’s 384 x 384 mm squared face supports 3,840 high-output white LEDs
grouped into 64 pixels on an 8 x 8 matrix. With a new, state-of-the-art, ultra-
compact 1,300W power supply, MagicBurst can deliver a peak light output of over
240,000 lumens – perfectly calibrated at 5600K – for several seconds, and put it into
The strobe duration, speed and intensity of each LED pixel group can be individually
controlled, and individual sections controlled to create graphic arrays, moving
checker-boards, flashing letters, etc. MagicBurst also has a library of fixed images
and pre-programmed dynamic effects.
With a minimalist design and reduced visual footprint, MagicBurst is similar in panel
/ head dimensions to the MagicPanel™-FX and DreamPanel™ product family. This
standardized format allows it to be combined in arrays with units of the same size
like Ayrton’s MagicPanel™-FX, and Imaging Display units, DreamPanel™ Shift and
DreamPanel™ Twin, to create giant graphic arrays, with breathtaking results.
MagicBurst has selectable Auto, Stage and Studio ventilation modes, with self-
adjusting variable speed fans for quiet operation in Auto mode. Its extended serial
connectivity means MagicBurst can be controlled via DMX-RDM, ArtNet™, sACN or a
wireless link using CRMX TiMo RDM from LumenRadio™.
