Ayrton MagicBurst LED Strobe
Posted on Tuesday, June 14th, 2016
Ayrton’s MagicBurst is a new high-power graphic LED strobe featuring continuous, unlimited rotation on its pan and tilt axis. The fixture, which is the company’s first strobe unit, first burst onto the world stage at Prolight + Sound 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany earlier this year. 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 ultra-compact 1,300W power supply, MagicBurst promises peak light output of more than 240,000 lumens (calibrated at 5600K) for several seconds, and the fixture can put that into continuous rotation.
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™.
