Ayrton first LED spot Ghibli Launched at PLASA 2017


Ayrton launched three new products at PLASA, which included Ghibli, MiniPanel-FX, and WildSun K25 TC.

“Ayrton is committed to providing the lighting designer with a complete range of lighting tools to suit every purpose and size of venue,” says Ayrton CEO, Chris Ferrante. “Our new releases are indicative of the breadth of our product range which constantly evolves to meet the requirements of our creative client base.”

GHIBLI

Ghibli is Ayrton’s first LED spot luminaire and marks an expansion of Ayrton’s Automated Lighting range. Compact, elegant and light weight, Ghibli boasts high output, ultra-efficient optics, an 8:1 zoom from 7° to 56° and a selectable high CRI mode amongst its wealth of features, all housed in a most compact, competitively-priced, package with a classy, sleek, industrial design.

“Ghibli is the smallest and lightest fixture in its class compared with both LED and metal halide products, and gives the best performance to size and weight ratio of any LED hard edge fixture available - and metal halide product - in its class,” confirms Ferrante.

• Output and Quality

Ghibli uses less than 900W of power in total, yet delivers an impressive output of 23,000 lumen, which renders it powerful enough for large scale arenas. In addition, its output is of an incredibly high quality, offering a crisp, clean and uniform beam with no hotspot, and fantastic centre-to-edge uniformity that delivers fat beams across its whole field, meaning Ghibli is at home as much in theatre as on the touring circuit.

• Ultra-Optical efficiency

This magnificent beam quality and output is due to Ghibli’s superb 80% optical efficiency which ensures there is no compromise between the two. “The higher colour temperature and spectral make-up of the Ghibli is great for concert touring applications, yet the flat beam and whisper-silent operation also makes Ghibli very suitable for theatrical users,” says Ayrton’s Global Sales Director, Michael Althaus.

• Massive Zoom Range

13 high quality lenses including a 137mm frontal lens deliver an 8:1 zoom ratio with a beam aperture of 7° - 56°. “The revelation was a real eye-opener to those who saw it and we were very happy with the approval and many compliments it received,” says Ambersphere’s Sales Director, Philip Norfolk.

• Selectable High CRI Mode

Ghibli is fitted with a very special filter for optimizing the colour rendering index. This ‘mode’ increases the CRI and can be activated remotely in situations demanding even higher-quality light output. “Visitors were quick to see the advantage of using a CRI filter over versions which alter the LED engine to achieve higher CRI values,” explains Norfolk. “The new filter system loses less light and means more versatility, compared to using a different light engine or even offering different versions of the same product to the market. Rental Houses clearly prefer to have just one solution that does it all perfectly.”

• Unparalleled Feature Set

Despite its compact size, Ghibli does not hold back on its feature set and offers one of the fullest ranges of options on the market, including CMY colour mixing, variable CTO and full field framing. The complete effect section includes two gobo wheels (one rotating, one static), a fixed colour wheel, a prism, an animation wheel and two frost filters, in addition to focus, iris, electronic dimming, strobe and engine animation control capabilities. The full field framing system is rotatable to 60° and allows each frame to be positioned with precision on a 100% surface area in all positions, even capable of a full wipe, to give lighting designers countless creative possibilities.

• New Gobo Designs

Attractive new custom-designed gobo patterns have been created in collaboration with lighting designers to meet the needs of the entertainment industry: “We were very happy with the positive feedback to the news designs,” says Ferrante. “Designers are always looking for something fresh, and with applications so varied across the markets, it was very gratifying to hear this level of response to our new designs.”

• Innovative Cooling System

Ghibli’s ultra efficient thermal design means less maintenance and lower servicing costs. The main airflow is directed over the heat sink at the rear of the fixture and avoids passing over the optical train, and its sealed LED engine means less maintenance or chance of failure. This results in fewer cleaning interventions which is an obvious benefit to rental companies.

“Visitors were able to understand for themselves how the combination of the dissipation of heat through Ghibli’s die cast base, and the liquid cooling system for the engine in the head were innovative ways to manage heat,” explains Norfolk. “These in turn allow Ghibli to have a smaller footprint while the liquid cooling system for the engine in the head reduces the number of cooling fans by half. The result is whisper silent operation which is an extremely desirable feature.”
