Claypaky has introduced the SKYLOS, an ultra-versatile and weather-resistant fixture, with incredible light output and outstanding construction features. The Skylos will certainly also be appreciated in the touring sector, where LDs are constantly on the look-out for dense, solid beams of light and ever-greater light output. It fits a custom 300W white light laser source, which provides an extremely parallel, uniform beam. The beam pours out from a large 300mm front lens, specifically designed in Claypaky's R&D department and it is perfectly uniform and parallel, with no visible hotspots.
The beam angle can be adjusted from 0.5° to 5° resulting in exceptional light intensity, which cannot be produced by a LED or traditional light source. If you consider its light output and the size of the front lens, the body of this remarkable light is lightweight and compact, the company says. This allows the unit both to be moved with relative ease in any environment, and to be rigged on trusses for use on tours. Its body is IP66 protection rated and marine grade. So, it is capable of working in any weather conditions and in environments with high marine salinity and a high risk of corrosion. A sophisticated internal heating system designed specifically for this product means it can even work at very low temperatures, as low as -40°.
