Ayrton MagicBlades always busy at Entertainment Installations
Posted on Friday, September 23rd, 2016
Over the past few months Entertainment Installations has purchased twenty-six Ayrton MagicBlades whose unique feature is the layout of its seven RGBW LED sources in-line, paired with the highly intensive angle of the optics, which allow the creation of light curtains with genuine overall consistency.
“Having watched Ayrton MagicBlades being spec’ed on tours in Europe over 2015 I thought it was only a matter of time before we were seeing them come up on lighting riders when those tours made it to Australia,” commented Neale Mace, managing director of Entertainment Installations.
Consequently Neale purchased sixteen MagicBlades in January and they were immediately used on The Wombats and The Foals Australian shows.
“Since then they’ve been in almost constant use both to fill lighting riders and for our own lighting designs,” he said. “We’ve found them to be a great, reliable fixture and so far they’ve had very little issues, they feel solid and the build quality is great. Powerful LED’s and continuous rotation on both axis create some incredible beam and FX looks.
“The LED’s are very bright and provide great beam effects and with some clever programming they can do looks you just can’t get from any other light.”
Due to the MagicBlades compact size they can be installed in many unique positions and, coupled with the individual control of the 7 RGBW LED sources, enables the creation of a multitude of new effects.
Neale remarked that even just four MagicBlades provide lots of high power and interesting looks to a small stage.
In fact Neale was so impressed by the performance of his first batch of MagicBlades he soon purchased another ten for use in a permanent night club system.
