Clay Paky launches Alpha projectors

Clay Paky Alpha is a line of medium-power (575 W) moving body projectors comprising two effects projectors (Alpha Spot HPE and Alpha Spot) and a washlight (Alpha Wash). All Alpha projectors feature high luminosity combining a 575 W discharge lamp with an elliptical parabola optical unit, a high degree of silence, light weight, electronic innovation and sophisticated software.
Alpha Spot HPE sports a completely renovated optical unit using a 10- 40 zoom and electronic focusing. It is fitted with CMY color mixing, a color wheel with 7 pure and selected color filters, linear CTO for gradual color temperature correction and for obtaining any pastel shade.
Alpha Spot HPE contains an innovative special effects section including 3 gobo wheels, of which 2 have indexable and easily interchangeable dual rotation gobos. The third wheel contains 8 fixed gobos and is equipped with 'fast clamping' system to quickly be replaced by another gobo wheel.The graphic system can be used with up to 20 gobos which can be superimposed on each other to achieve a morphing effect.
The projector also has a 120mm animation disc - equipped with 'fast clamping' system - that can be used on its own or in combination with the gobos. The graphic system is completed by 2 rotating, interchangeable prisms (2-facet and 5-facet), 3 frost filters, mechanical high-speed iris, a newly designed 0-100% dimmer on a dedicated channe.l and stop/strobe effect.
Alpha Wash has an optical unit with a high luminous efficiency and a zoom that allows beam angle from 4 to 80. Alpha Wash gives CMY color mixing, a color wheel fitted out for 4 colors - of which 2 (Congo Blue and Satured Red) are provided - and linear CTO, which allows gradual correction of color temperature and the creation of any pastel shade. Alpha Wash has variable light and variable heavy frost on two different channels, a 0 -100% dimmer on a dedicated channel, and a stop/strobe effect.
Further features of the Alpha Spot HPE and the Alpha Wash are long life self-charging buffer battery, preset macros, "energy saver" (with the stop or total dimmer effect on, consumption cut by 50%), on/ off lamp control from the lighting desk, hot lamp restrike, 115/ 230V switchable power supply, electronic ballast, built - in power factor correction, functions reset from the lighting desk, help in the menu, memo, autotest, possibility to upgrade the software through the DMX 512 input, Ethernet connection, electronic check-up on each parameter, DMX level monitoring on each channel, feedback information for each sensor and encoder, electronic repositioning of the effects, and easy access to luminaire interior.
Clay Paky Alpha Series
Alpha Spot is an effects projector with many of the Alpha Spot HPE's features for professional and entertainment applications with more limited budgets. It uses a 15- 35 Zoom and electronic focusing. Fitted with 2 color wheels, 2 gobo wheels with indexable and easily interchangeable dual rotation gobos, this projector also has a 5-facet prism, 2 frost filters, mechanical high-speed iris, a 0-100% dimmer on a dedicated channel and stop/strobe effect.
Alpha Spot also has long life self- charging buffer battery, preset macros, on/ off lamp control from the lighting desk, magnetic ballast, built-in power factor correction, functions reset from the lighting desk, help function, possibility to upgrade the software through the DMX 512 input, ethernet connection, electronic check-up on each parameter, DMX level monitoring on each channel, feedback information for each sensor and encoder, electronic repositioning of the effects, and easy access to luminaire interior.
