Ayrton will launch two brand-new products at Prolight+Sound 2018 as Mistral™TC and MiniBurst™ receive their world premieres at the show: the 300W white LED Mistral™TC spot fixture is the latest, much-anticipated new development in Ayrton’s Automated Luminaires range.
While the MiniBurst™ graphic strobe is the next luminaire to undergo the miniaturisation treatment of Ayrton’s highly successful Creative Solutions range. MiniPanel™-FX will also be exhibited for the first time in mainland Europe.
Mistral™TC The superbly small but incredibly bright LED spotlight
Ayrton is excited to present the world premiere of its newest LED-based spotlight, Mistral™TC. Mistral-TC is the latest in Ayrton’s new range of fixtures, named both in honour of North African desert winds and some of the hottest performance cars on the planet, which signify a new era in the company’s development as it focuses on a sensational new range of LED spot and wash light fixtures.
Sharing a form factor with its compact sibling, Merak™, Mistral-TC is an extremely versatile, feature-rich 300W white LED source spot in an incredibly small package. Designed for applications requiring perfect colour reproduction, Mistral-TC once again pushes the boundaries of technology with an entirely new white LED module, calibrated at 7000K, with CRI greater than 90 and extremely high TM30 readings, making it ideal for applications such as fashion shows or car shows. Mistral-TC delivers an output of over 14,000 lumens, and has an incredible 7° - 53° beam spread with perfect image resolution at all angles.
Mistral-TC’s prolific list of features includes CMY colour mixing, variable CTO and a six-position complementary colour wheel. The effects section includes seven indexable rotating gobos and nine fixed gobos, a continuous graphic animation effects wheel, 15-blade iris, a five-facet indexable rotating prism, and a soft-edge frost filter. Heat is dissipated by Ayrton’s unique liquid cooling system with silent ventilation mode for studio and theatre applications.
Powerful, fast, precise, versatile and intuitive, Mistral-TC offers unrivalled performance in its category with nothing of its size, weight, brightness and number of functions on the market. Mistral-TC - prepare to be blown away!
MiniBurst™ The mini spinning graphic strobe
Also receiving its world premiere at Prolight+ Sound is MiniBurst. MiniBurst follows in the tiny footsteps of MiniPanel™-FX by presenting designers with a quarter-sized version of its big brother, MagicBurst™, the first strobe fixture to be produced by Ayrton. However, MiniBurst’s small dimensions belie its capabilities as it still dazzles in terms of output, creative possibilities and price point.
Equal in physical size to MiniPanel-FX, MiniBurst’s 285mm x 285mm square face contains 960 mono-chip, daylight-white LED sources grouped into 16 pixels on a 4 x 4 matrix. Its dimensions makes it extremely easy to integrate into lighting rigs of all sizes, yet it is capable of emitting up to 60,000 lumens, with a flicker-free output that is perfect for all TV and video applications as well as live performance.
Exhibiting Ayrton’s famed continuous pan and tilt and extremely accurate positioning, MiniBurst’s graphic capabilities are evident in the individual control of speed, duration and intensity of every single pixel. Each unit also comes with built-in pattern effects with speed and fade controls for fast and easy scenic applications.
With DMX512 control, RDM compatibility, and local or stand-alone control, including master/slave modes, MiniBurst is as versatile and creative as its full-blown counterpart which took the industry by storm at its launch at Prolight+Sound 2016 as the industry’s first high-power graphic LED strobe with continuous, unlimited, pan and tilt. Great things come in small parcels and MiniBurst is about to prove it!
MiniPanel-FX Dreamy colours for fabulous FX!
MiniPanel-FX will be exhibited for the first time in mainland Europe. Launched at PLASA 2017 MiniPanel™-FX is a diminutive version of the MagicPanel™-FX, and the first Ayrton product to receive the miniaturisation process. This fabulous new addition may be small in dimensions but it is mighty in output, and proffers a zoom spread of 3.6° to 53°. MiniPanel-FX houses four of Ayrton’s unique 65mm square lenses in a neat 2 x 2 configuration to form an extremely powerful beam and wash light with immense creative possibilities. It is equipped with four 30W RGBW multi-chip LED emitters paired with a high-efficiency optical system to deliver up to 2,400 lumens from only 200W power consumption. With characteristic endless double rotation, MiniPanel-FX is the perfect tiny complement to its hugely successful siblings, MagicPanel™-FX and MagicBlade™-FX, and now fits perfectly alongside MiniBurst.
Ayrton’s famous lightshow will entertain and inform visitors to Prolight+Sound 2018, Hall 3.0 Stand G81. Once more when nearly 300 fixtures from the masters of LED luminaire innovation will demonstrate the capabilities of these newest products, alongside some existing Ayrton favourites. Make sure you are there – and bring your sunglasses!
