Last month (October 2018) at LDI 2018, the world premiere had a new lighting device by the renowned Italian manufacturer Clay Paky
It’s SHARPY PLUS, the first true 100% HYBRID unit, able to be a perfect beam light and a perfect spotlight. It is suitable for every occasion, with an extraordinary luminous efficiency.
The SHARPY PLUS has a totally new, top-performance Osram Sirius 330W X8 lamp and weighs only 21.6 kg (47.6 lb). All its functions are extremely quick. Its body is slightly larger than the Sharpy’s, to house a high quality optical unit with a zoom that ranges from 3° to 36°. Its minimum beam angle of 3° makes it possible to generate the narrow parallel light beams essential for beam light mode. Its wide zoom range also allows large beam angles, which makes the SHARPY PLUS a perfect spotlight for all purposes.
The SHARPY PLUS has two independent operating modes. In BEAM mode, the aerial effects are enhanced by the way the Sirius lamp is made. It is capable of extraordinary power output (over 300,000 lux at 10mt distance), which the optical unit enhances through a marked hot spot. In SPOT mode, the light is diffused in a more even way which means visual effects can be projected with excellent uniformity.
Its 3° to 36° (1:9) zoom covers the entire range linearly, both in spot mode and in beam mode. This feature makes the SHARPY PLUS unique on the market.
