Ayrton / Morpheus had six new products on display at LDI. the MagicDot-R, CosmoPix-R , and VersaPix-RS, all part of the Creative Solutions line.
MAGICDOT™R is the first professional moving head LED luminaire with a single optical collimator. The result is an intense beam of less than 5° using a multi-chip RGBW LED with a light-emitting surface of 8 mm2.
With its cylindrical design, the MAGICDOT™R (patent pending), is capable of continuous double rotation on the pan & tilt axes, allows the user to create groups of luminaires and control each light emitter individually in all directions. Leaving a minimum amount of space between multiple luminaires will make it possible to create configurations never before dreamt of.
LDI also was the US release of the DreamPanel-Shift and DreamPanel-Twin, and Ayrton’s DreamPanel-HD-Box control system.
The DREAMPANEL™TWIN is a hybrid luminaire with the MAGICPANEL™ on one side and the DREAMPANEL™SHIFT on the other. Capable of continuous double rotation on the pan and tilt axes, the DREAMPANEL™TWIN can alternate between displaying high-definition video images and 3D volumetric lighting effects. The 6 mm pitch of the video side offers the perfect balance of definition required to display video media on stage, of screen size for enabling full HD, and of overall system brightness.
The MAGICPANEL™ side has improved resolution thanks to an 8 x 8 matrix featuring patented 45 mm diameter collimators that can obtain a full 6° angle and centre-beam luminous intensity of over 73 candela per lumen, a record achievement.
The innovative 45 mm optics enable the DREAMPANEL™TWIN to achieve almost the same performance as the MAGICPANEL™R by offering a much higher 64-pixel resolution, ideal for mapping effects. The video side uses the same array as the DREAMPANEL™SHIFT and is equipped with 4096 RGB LED emitters. Their black casing and internal reflector provide absolute contrast and allow for breathtaking graphic effects, while avoiding stray reflections from the other emitters. The two sides are controlled completely separately-the video side through the entirely new HDMI DREAMPANEL™HD-BOX control system, whilst the MAGICPANEL™ side used for 3D volumetric effects, along with the pan and tilt movement, is managed by Art-Net or sACN through an Ethernet link.
