B-EYE has brought technological innovations that made it versatile, as it is 3 in 1: LED wash, perfect beam light and spectacular visual effects projector
In the first place, the B-EYE changed the way we see LED spotlights. Its innovative optical unit has brought improved uniformity and efficiency. Rotating front lenses and the ability to control each LED individually provide kaleidoscopic projections and visual effects.
So it’s not surprising that the B-EYE has won several awards, and now Clay Paky has gone one step further, making the HY B-EYE, which brings all the best features of the previous generation, but with upgrades and new options. This makes HY B-EYE more powerful, efficient, smarter, versatile and quieter than ever! What exactly does that mean?
The HY B-EYE fits 40 watt Osram Ostar RGBW LEDs. They are twice as powerful as the LEDs found in the original B-EYE. Thanks to this greater power, lighting designers can be sure that the HY B-EYE will always be very bright and distinguishable. The HY B-EYE can also be used at very large events and on enormous stages.
The HY B-EYE is extremely bright thanks to the combined effect of its light source and its special optical unit, which has been re-designed by Claypaky with glass rods to make the most of the power of the LEDs. The custom-made lenses collect all the light and convey it into a beam where the light from the individual chips is homogenized to achieve maximum uniformity. The lumen/ watt ratio achieved is truly amazing, and higher than is reached by any other model of equal power.
Easier to program
The HY B-EYE has the same channel lay-out as the B-EYE and the same extended or simplified programming options. It also has the same pre-programmed visual effect macros. But, with the HY B-EYE you can do even more! The HY B-EYE is the first Claypaky light with built-in Kling-Net protocol. Kling-Net is an advanced plug-and- play control solutions developed by the digital media specialists ArKaos. It can be used to distribute video data by Ethernet in real time to remote display devices, such as an array of LED light projectors. The benefits of using Kling-Net are manifold and are all aimed at enhancing the lighting designer’s creativity, while making the management and synchronization of LED light parameters and functions more simple.
The HY B-EYE is not only a new, more powerful wash light, but it also generates extraordinarily visible aerial effects, thanks to the light beam being twice the original power. Moreover the stunning mosaic of tiles of light on its front lens produce never-seen-before graphic effects. Thanks also to its wide linear zoom, the HY B-EYE is a truly universal light, able to adapt magnificently to small stages and rigs, and to large events. The HY B-EYE is available in 37 LED (HY B-EYE K25) and 19 LED (HY B-EYE K15) versions.
More reliable and silent
The rotational front and zoom lens design has been upgraded to provide full reliability at the roughest operation conditions. The zoom lens does automatically retract when the fixture is turned off, thus preventing mechanical damages during handling or when the unit is loaded into a flight-case.
Among the main pluses of the HY B-EYE is its extraordinarily quiet operation. Several HY B-EYE units can be used in TV studios without fear of disturbing the show in any way.
A new compact, functional body with a practical, elegant design makes the HY B-EYE ergonomi- cally simple to install on any stage.
Bigger in performance but not in size
The double-power and significant features that characterize the HY B-EYE should not make you think of a larger, heavier, more complex unit. The HY B-EYE has similar dimensions as its predecessor, and weighs only 27.5 kg. The K15 version weighs only 21 kg.
