Ayrton introduces DreamSpot-18K – the world\'s first laser-source profile

Ayrton has established itself a reputation for developing only original and innovative products and this year’s release of fixtures has served to reinforce this view as the company launches DreamSpot-18k, the world’s first laser-source automated profile.

Unique in appearance and performance, DreamSpot-18K is the industry’s first automated, multi-functional, multi-purpose luminaire with a laser source. Fitted with an Osram Laser Phaser P6000 phosphor conversion module, DreamSpot-18K is capable of both beam and spot projection and offers an astonishing 18,000 lumen output, in a uniform beam with no hot spots, plus continuous pan and tilt capability.

DreamSpot-18K’s zoom is composed of a 13-element optical system that provides a range of 2° to 34° in beam mode and 6° to 54° in spot mode. The monochrome laser emitter is colour calibrated at 5,600°K, negating the need for relamping due to colour variations. DreamSpot-18K offers a CMY subtractive colour mixing system and a wheel of 13 standard colours that include four levels of CTO correction. It is capable of producing an almost infinite palette of pastel and saturated colours. The rich assortment of effects includes fixed and rotating gobos, an iris, a dynamic effects wheel, rotating prisms, diffusion filters and a strobe – enough to satisfy a wide variety of needs across numerous applications.

Its flicker-free source management ensures DreamSpot-18K is also suitable for TV applications and all video recorded events. For optimum stability, DreamSpot-18K is equipped with a highly effective new phase-change liquid cooling system using heat pipe technology.

Ayrton continually strives to remain on the cutting edge of technological innovation – in optics, electronics, mechanics, and heat dissipation – and this year’s new fixtures mark a breakthrough in the history of the company, which once again has introduced completely new concepts, from scratch, in order to surprised its clients and the industry at large.

Lighting designers all over the world had anticipated the arrival of Ayrton’s first profile fixture, expecting it to be a unique entry into the LED-based genre. These expectations have been well and truly surpassed by the advent of this totally new, laser sourced, concept!
