Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE offers versatility and spectacular effects
Posted on Thursday, November 14th, 2013
Show Technology can’t wait for the arrival of the first Clay Paky A.leda B-EYE revolutionary wash-lights early next year.
“Clay Paky once again show their innovative flair with the B-EYE a truly unique concept that has plenty of people asking us about demo units already,” comments Emmanuel Ziino, managing director of Show Technology. “I am sure that our talented lighting designers will have a field day with the creative possibilities the B-EYE will make available to them.”
A.Leda B-EYE is a wash-light, generating beautiful colours and featuring an impressive, wide 6° to 70° beam aperture. The zoom however can be closed even further, down to as little as 4 degrees thus switching the light from a wash diffusion into a narrow and parallel beam. In this operating mode B-EYE becomes a beam-light, whose beam consists of an array of individually controllable little beams. The B-EYE LEDs can be controlled one by one; the light beam is a pulsating bundle where every micro-beam has its own colour and shade.
B-EYE’s front lens can be rotated in either directions and at variable speed and many little beams are created, that can be unfolded or closed like petals.
“A.leda B-EYE is extremely adaptable as it can be used in many different ways, all within the same project if you wish,” added Emmanuel. “The fixture is, at the same time, a state-of-the-art LED wash-light, an amazing ‘beam-light’ and a projector for new and amazing graphic effects.”
The A.leda B-EYE was the winner of the 2013 Plasa Award for Innovation where the judges said, “The B-EYE had a “wow” factor. It’s an innovative look and a modern retake on a classic effect. It’s also a fully-functional and versatile luminaire”.
