Ayrton reports its most successful LDI show to date

Ayrton was exhibiting with exclusive US distributor, Morpheus Lights, at the 2015 LDI show in Las Vegas to promote its new product releases. “This year’s LDI show was clearly the best ever for Ayrton,” says Ayrton’s Valère Huart-Gyors. Ayrton showed the new fixtures in a new lightshow designed specifically for the LDI booth by lighting designer, Stéphane Migné.


MagicDot-R is the first professional moving head LED luminaire with a single optical collimator. A new 94 mm diameter optical system uses a new 60 W RGBW multichip LED with a light-emitting surface of 8 mm2 that delivers a 4.5° beam with a central beam intensity of 180,000 candelas. With continuous pan and tilt rotation, MagicDot-R has a totally round head that matches the diameter of its cylindrical base in all positions to allow new configurations with barely a centimeter of space between two luminaires.


CosmoPix-R is a new luminaire based on the concept of the PAR36 double-rotation spheres that date back to the early ‘80s. The CosmoPix-R takes 12 of the new 94 mm optics and generates 12 shafts of coloured light that can be separately controlled in all directions and driven in continuous pan and tilt rotation to create effects.


VersaPix-RS puts Ayrton’s new 94 mm diameter optics in combination with a 4 mm2 40 W RGBW multichip to produce a fan of five 3.5° beams (the narrowest in Ayrton’s portfolio) with a central beam intensity of 200 candela per lumen. This makes the VersaPix-RS three times more powerful than the original VersaPix, with a central beam intensity six times greater than before. 3D volumetric effects can be achieved with this development.


DreamPanel-Shift is a 384 x 384 mm video panel with a 64 x 64 RGB LED display at a 6 mm pitch, set in a flat black background. Mounted on a moving head, DreamPanel-Shift has a 48-circuit rotating connector that enables the transmission of video signals through continuous pan and tilt rotation.


DreamPanel-Twin is a hybrid luminaire displaying a DreamPanel-Shift on one side and an optimized, 8 x 8 emitter MagicPanel-style beam projection luminaire on the other, with the two sides controlled completely independently. Incorporated into its motorised head, which is capable of continuous pan and tilt rotation, the DreamPanel-Twin can alternate between displaying high-definition video images and 3D volumetric lighting effects. The video display on the DreamPanel-Twin has 4,096 RGB LEDs on a black background, while the RGBW beam projection side has an improved resolution of sixty-four 6.5° emitters.


Ayrton’s DreamPanel HD-Box control system has been specially developed to drive DreamPanel video panels via a proprietary HDMI protocol. The controller manages the image, the positioning of the panels, and the rotation between the media server layer, which generates the signal, and the display layer. It also resizes and positions the media in real-time in a matrix of video panels regardless of their orientation. DreamPanel HD-Box sends each DreamPanel tile the entire HDMI 1080 P image with a control parameter so that it only displays its allotted portion of the image. DreamPanel Manager, a PC-compatible software, lets the user configure a matrix, orientate the tiles individually with 1° accuracy, and adjust brightness.


WildSun-K25 was shown for the first time in the US at the show. Designed as a replacement for conventional 4000 W HMI Fresnel fixtures, consuming 2600 W of power, WildSun-K25 was developed in collaboration with cinematographers and operators who specialize in video production for major sporting events.


Morpheus Lights executed the 270-fixture booth design with the assistance of Ayrton’s Product and Application Manager, Vincent Billard.
